Sales sales sales…
Hide – that’s what I say, take cover, do anything we can rather than add more unwanted so & so items in our wardrobes.
To give you an idea of where I am, already bought my AW15 coat full price. (So – if it goes on sale next year there will be tears and recrimination) Still, the advantage is that I got my perfect fit and the style, exactly as I wanted it. The experience was comfortable and I was offered champagne. (I think it was champagne, it may have been just prosecco. In any case, I opted for the sparking water to keep a certain clarity in my decision making process)
In essence, I don’t do the summer sales, (except perhaps a touch of CHANEL) as I buy so little and prefer to do it with clear head, sipping my glass of sparkling water – No wardrobe space for the random, summer sales ‘bargain’, they inevitably direct precious funds away from the upcoming Autumn Winter collections and interfere with my desire to achieve the epitome of chic, which is rightfully mine.
What One may be tempted to buy on Sale:
The exact design, colour, and shape of the set of pyjamas one always wanted, but one never dared fork out for…
The exact design, colour, and size of the classic cashmere cardigan that was too expensive to buy full price. (Brora sale is always worth it and if it’s your style, so is Chinti and Parker)
Quality bras & socks to replenish the organised underwear drawer. (Update: fenwicks has the best and most underrated lingerie department in London.
Next year check the sale out 10th July! Amazing French silk knickers of the very best kind (falcon & bloom) faliero sarti cashmere stoles all at amazing prices…)
What One should never, ever, attempt to buy on Sale
Fur (old fashioned, cruel, environmentally destructive, and have you really got e space to store it?)
Any items created especially to go on sale. Things created especially for outlets and sales, are cheap tat that will end up as clutter long before the season is out.
Any items unlikely to be ever worn. (obvious I know, but – surely- can’t be the only one who has bought things on sale and never actually wore them.)
Temptation also came in the form of 30% off Balenciaga evening shorts, but I manage to get away. Not enough cost per wear value, plus already got a pair from my Budget list.
And how are you getting on, if I might ask?
