Just a quick post from me today … I am in the midst of trying to put a presentation together with the title ‘Clear Skin – What It Means To Me’. Obviously, I could wrap this up very quickly with just two words; Hot Pants! ... but I think a little more is expected from me. 15 minutes more to be precise! All part of the World Psoriasis Day activities taking place in Basel next week (yes, prepare yourselves for some more mirror selfies) But I digress – during screen breaks I’ve been having a quick little look at what is on offer during the mid-season sales. Sadly it’s all window-shopping right now for me, but for those whose budgets are more flexible, there are quite a few bargains to be had.
Starting with my old favourite, Cos. I just love this fine silk wool scarf (I don’t know why they call it wool, as the description just mentions a silk and cotton knit), offering a nod to the colour of the season and now reduced to €25.
Next up is the Split Back Printed Blazer now reduced to €50. I’m not going to lie – I’m kinda’ struggling with this shape. The whole unstructured look is so very ‘80s and I’m having difficulties getting my head around the shapelessness of the look. But the colour is perfect for anyone with scalp psoriasis, and if it’s an on-trend jacket you want, well, this is definitely it!
There is also a printed scarf, now €23, in a lightweight silk and wool blend. A handy little number if you have a black coat or jacket lurking in the back of your wardrobe but are worried about escaping flakes! This scarf could be the perfect camouflage.
The Top with Contrast Sleeves has my name written all over it. Slouchy, forgiving, white, sleeves, lightweight (please tell me I'm not the only one about to expire from heat on occasion ... in October??), pretty much perfect in fact for just €20
And who can escape Mango right now? Constant reductions are keeping them to the forefront of every blog these days. Having said that, the white jacket that I ordered a few weeks ago went straight back. It looked as cheap as it was which rather defeated the purpose.
However, using the code 5MNG, you can now get 30% off cardigans, sweaters, coats and jackets until October 22nd so it seemed rude not to take a little look! This Cashmere & Silk blend sweater is €29.99 (all prices pre discount) and in perfect colour choices also
Or for something a little more snuggly, how about this cable knit cotton sweater for €29.99?
And finally … because surely the weather is going to change at some point? This long feather down coat – €99.99 before discount. I have one very similar to this which I’ve worn to death during the really cold spells of winter. Definitely worthy of a place in the wardrobe.
And now I must take my leave and return to my scribbling! In the interests of research (and desperately searching for inspiration) what does clear skin mean to you?
