Well, it’s all been a bit of a wash out, hasn’t it? High hopes of sunny days and bbqs have been replaced with grumbles about Hunter wellies and rain macs. To be fair, I do live in Ireland which has never been renowned for its good weather but the last few weeks have been extraordinarily miserable. So, to cheer myself up, I decided to do a last quick sweep of the sales stock online to see if there are any bargains still left that would carry us, not just to, but right through the autumn/winter months ahead. In fact, if current weather is anything to go by, most of these can be worn right now. Summer my ass!
Starting with these Ash Gang suede heeled boots now down from €230.55 to a bargainous €92.80. I swear my heart quickened when I saw these and my finger was poised to press buy, but Murphy’s Law, they are not available in my size. *utters foul swear words* So for those of you who are a 5 or 6, please purchase on my behalf. Just too good a deal to be left behind. Super little boots which would work equally well with jeans as with dress and opaques.
And if you’re looking for a dress to go with them, this little Diane Von Furstenberg number would be just ideal. The Taffy shirtdress is reduced from €378 to €189 and would be such a great addition to any wardrobe. How perfect is the colour and honestly, you couldn’t ask for better coverage! Gorgeous with over the knee boots for a casual weekend lunch; perfect with opaques and ballet flats in the office or you could bling it up with heels and a brightly coloured clutch for the evening. Ideal little wardrobe workhorse!
Two years ago I scored a serious bargain with a Helene Berman coat in the Asos Christmas sales (see here – I now have plans to purchase a shearling snood to wear with it, but that’s a blog for another day!) These coats are so beautifully made and gorgeous quality, so it seems right that I should tell you about this bargain, the Colour Block Collar Revere Coat, reduced from €267.11 to just €65.07. Throw on over jeans and a white shirt, or add a huge cream scarf for those colder wintry days. Love this!
Clearly it wouldn’t be a blog from me if I didn’t include a scarf and sales times are the best time to invest a little extra so that you can bag yourself some real quality that will stand the test of time. This DVF 100% cashmere scarf is currently reduced by 50% to €151.52 and with shades of blue, black and white would work really well with a winter palette.
But now my favourite, this Elizabeth & James Cynnie bucket bag in navy leather,reduced from €530 to €318. No words are needed for this … it’s quite simply divine! (Must not buy. Do not need. *sits on hands and types with nose*)
And finally, you didn't think I'd forgotten, did you? Of course not! A wardrobe essential for anyone with psoriasis. The Selena Crepe blazer from Iris & Ink is the perfect white blazer for day and night. (I have mentioned how much I Iike a good white blazer, haven't I?!) Reduced from €203.12 to €97.50
I’ll be back later in the week to show some of the bargains that I picked up over the past few weeks. To be honest, the weather has been so shocking, that I haven’t really been in the humour to model white jeans or tee shirts … but I promise to put on my happy face and do so this week – even if is biblical outdoors. Pah!
