We all know the best way to really shop the sales and save money is to avoid them. But that’s just no fun, is it?!
The reality of it is, I’m actually shopping for bathrooms and kitchens via the Christmas sales this year. But they don’t look nearly as pretty in a collage as clothing. And just because I’m not buying anything doesn’t mean I can’t look…
And my tips?
Only buy what you saw full price (which was why this post was relatively easy for me, I literally searched what I was eyeing up last week).
Look for items you couldn’t afford before – cashmere, coats or leather bags.
Stick to items you get a lot of wear out of: jewellery, leopard and stripes are never bad investments, in my opinion.
Buy classics that you won’t hide in a cupboard and years later accept you were ‘caught up in the moment’.
Try and buy a few items that will take you through the next season: sunglasses for example, or a kaftan (I love this one from Whistles).
More classic stores (especially interiors) feature the same items year after year, so it’s worth just holding out until the sales start – i.e The White Company bed linen or Magnet kitchens.
