What She Bought….

OK. I’ve been in Paris, so my Net-a-Porter obsession had to be curbed for a few days. To my dismay, when I got back last night, the Vivienne Westwood dress that I had stowed in my basket had sold out, as had the 5-pack of Hanky Panky knickers which are THE best pants in the world. Humph! That’s what happens when you dither!

Anyway, I’ve finally pressed the “confirm” button and I thought you might like to know what I went for. I have my eye on a couple of other things too, but I’ll see how the first lot pans out! I may need to do another eBay cull to pay my credit card…but I do think that I’ll get lots of use out of all of the things I’ve bought. I’ll give you an update once I’ve done a try-on.

1) Donna Karan Knitted Dress – down from £620 to £186. Plain Jane, but I love this style of dress. Perfect for the winter with black tights and my Belstaff boots, and it’s forgiving around the tummy, which is always a massive bonus! If there are any left, they’ll be HERE.

 2) Hanky Panky Set-of-Three Thongs. Usually I hate thongs, but these are soft, wide-banded and one-size-fits-all. Which means that if you’re on the smaller size they are amazingly comfy! The pack of five had sold out, so pack of three (hohoho) it was. Still, I bought a pair from Figleaves the other week and it was £18 for ONE! So these are great value. They are (if they haven’t sold out) HERE.

3) DVF Bikini. See last week’s post about bikini indecisions. I dallied about for ages – got the Marni one too but in a different shipment, have a feeling it will be going back!  DVF Bikini is HERE.

 4) J.Crew Swing Sweater, reduced from £150 to £45. I love this style of jumper – take a look at it on the model, it’s really chic! Couldn’t resist it for the autumn and winter – I’ll stow it away safely away from the moths! Some left HERE

 5) Contrast Tee by Zoe Karssen. Oh dear. I popped this into the basket ten seconds before I hit the “confirm” button, so it was definitely an impulse buy. I do like the sporty styling, but we shall see! It can always go back – as can the other items. OH THE JOYS OF SHOPPING!

Tell me what you’ve been buying – make me feel better! If you want to browse the remains of the sale: Net-a-Porter
