New year equals new clothes, am I right? Heck yes I am! Scrolling the January Sales almost makes rolling back into work mode more bearable when you know that a bevvy of discounted booty is heading your way. But what if you could enjoy that January Sales feeling all year round? What if you could be ahead of the game and in the know as soon as your favourite store goes into savage sale mode? That beauts bag or cute coat you have been aching to get your claws on could be yours, without having to sharpen your elbows to barge fellow fillies out of the way in the dash to get to the shops. PLUS what if I tell you that you can filter, compare and contrast ACROSS the various brands sales? The fashion version of “The Hunger Games” isn’t our bag babes…but a hugely discounted bag IS! Click this way to discover what we nabbed and how you too can “Love the Sales”…All. Year. Round!
Now if you know me you know that the following is my shopping mantra: “I love cheap clothing, but not clothes that look cheap”. It’s a simple ethos, which has made me a savvy shopper! I do my research into the things I want and I always get them at a good price…but this can require a lot of legwork- literally! I can’t physically count the number of miles I must have clocked up on my fashion fitbit trawling the shops to nab the best bargains, sometimes getting up at silly o’clock to be the first through the door. “Why not do it online you big idiot?”, I hear you cry! Trust me, I have that in my arsenal of awesome sales savvy too! Signing up to endless stores and brands newsletters to get their sales alert and then…getting up at silly o’clock again. It’s exhausting to be a fashionista *SIGH*
But fear not fair fellow fashionista – because I have discovered a hack that will serve you savings, as well as style! Please allow Love the Sales to sashay into your life…and stay! Love the Sales is basically a virtual hub brimming with all your favourite brands. By simply selecting your top stores, you will get email notifications when they go into sale mode, all year round. You can also create an online wishlist pre-sale too, so you can nab things super quickly. I cleaned up doing this pre Black Friday! Why personally love it is this: You can filter your search across brands, based on product type, colour, size and price point! Which means if you are after a size 10 LBD for your birthday – it will show you every single one, across EVERY SINGLE BRAND. And with shops like Miss Selfridge, BooHoo, Oasis, Topshop, Asos, Urban Outfitters and Missguided to name but a few, you are going to find something fierce and at an uh-mazing barganista pricetag!
They say sharing is caring – so let me share my recent Missguided haul that I nabbed through Love the Sales. This little lot came in at under £60 – which is about £100 less than everything would have been full price!:
Navy Blue Gladiator Heels – £15
Fiercest than Russell Crowe surrounded by an arena of lions, these had to be added to cart straight away! I will be styling these up with everything from cute flippy skirted tea dresses to “I’m with the band” vinyl leggings. And you know what? They are surprisingly super comfy. So if you are not sold by the bargain price, you’ll be bowled over by the joy of no “foot burn”on your big night out. And if shoes are your porn, you have to check out the full gambit of Love the Sales women’s shoe sale!
Sports Luxe Grey Bralette -£2
If you don’t owe a super comfy yet surprisingly sexy bralette, it’s time to grab yourself one in the sales. I basically live in them and so when I spotted this sporty little number, it needed to join my ever growing collection STAT. They are great for under shirts or, if you are feeling sassy, shown off under shirts but undoing a few extra buttons. You little minx you!
Embroidered Distressed Oversized Denim Jacket – £22
I have been after a cool denim jacket with a twist and when I spotted this babe it was love at first click! The quality of the embroidery is second to none and the price is unbelievable for the amount of stitching that has gone into it. I will be wearing this with some hardcore triple denim (shirt and jeans) with some killer biker boots or thrown over the top of an oversized t-shirt dress and over the knee boots. Prepare for numerous OOTD posts on Instagram in the foreseeable future – you have been warned!
Grey Marl Ladder Sided Bodysuit – £6
As part of my very loosely framed New Year Resolutions, I have decided to be a little more adventurous about what I wear and also get things that are a little out of my comfort zone. I am not overtly keen on showing a lot of leg or a whole heap of boob. So this bodysuit shows skin but in a more comfortable way for me – by way of my side and my back! This is balanced by the higher tank style of the neck line and the super comfy “burn out” material. This would be perfectly partnered under the above denim jacket and a pair of high waisted rip kneed jeans for a casual rock chick look. Add fierce PVC ankle boots and a thick velvet choker and this outfit is ready to rock!
Suede Zip Knee High Waisted Leggings – £10
I have been after a pair of suede look leggings for AGES and these are the definition of everything I wanted – high waisted, super soft, D ring zip, good stretch and zip knees…plus a phenomenal price! Again, these would make a killer OOTD paired with EVERYTHING in this haul – the jacket, bodysuit, heels and these leggings. Hmmmm – I feel a follow up blog post in the air…
So if you love the sales and want them to love you all year round…it’s time to visit Love the Sales!
Until next time fillies,
