Summer ’16 Sales Picks

Well, so much for ‘being good’ on the shopping front. When it comes to the sales all good intentions go out the window – my online shopping bags are too easily filled and the ‘Proceed to Puchase’ button pressed. Damn internet shopping – it’s way too easy!

Throughout the seasons I go about adding things to my online wishlists in the hope that eventually some of it will reach the sales. I generally try not to buy things full price so this policy tends to work quite well (if I can hold back for so long!).

This season it has worked a little too well in that practically half of the things on my wishlists have gone on sale!

Clockwise from top left Saint Laurent Jane sandals, Dries Van Noten flip flops, Jimmy Choo clutch, Aquazzura Cleopatra sandals, Sarah’s Bag clutch and Aquazzura Pom-Pom sandals.

When sales shopping I find it’s the bags and shoes that go first, so they are always the first things to go in my shopping bag. You can probably tell from these pieces that I have my holidays in mind!

Roksanda top, J Crew cashmere sweater, March11 blouse and dress from Anthropologie.

I’m definitely shopping for brights and prints right now! I also look out for my favourite designers whose pieces are normally eye-watering at full price (Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou, Aquazzura, Vilshenko, Stella Jean, Missoni – to name a few). It’s also a good time to snap up and replace cashmere and silk tops. I particularly like Tibi for silk tops and Npeal and Pure Collection for cashmere.

Clockwise from top left, Duro Olowu silk kimono, Etre Cecile flamingo jumper, Missoni kaftan and skirt , Jerome Dreyfuss leopard print bag, Mary Katrantzou cami, Mark Cross wave bag, Paula Cadematori bagPierre Hardy bag and Vilshenko cape.

I adore the bag designers above, they really transform the simplest outfit. I have not bought all these things but I am definitely salivating over them right now! It definitely pays to shop around as the prices and discounts are always changing. If I can help anyone find anything they’re after, I will!

What’s made it to your shopping bag this sale?

(For those who are interested, I will also do a blog post on ‘Sales Picks under £150’.)
