I thought that I was done and dusted with my sales posts (and my sales shopping!) but then an email pinged into my inbox and resisting opening it would have been akin to placing a lively mouse in front of a cat and expecting the cat to simply ignore it. It was the Net-a-Porter email that they send out as soon as they start making the “further reductions” – it’s traditionally the time when I make my best investment purchases. Although I’m not sure how I did this time – we’ll have to wait and see what everything’s like when it arrives! Mind you, the last shipment was a roaring success, so I have high hopes…
Here’s what I bought. At time of publishing, there were loads left in different sizes; there are also plenty of items that I loved but couldn’t justify – so enjoy browsing on my behalf!
1) Vivienne Westwood Explorer silk jumpsuit, reduced from £445 to £227.50 here. This is my favourite (and most indulgent) buy. Love the classic shape of the top, love the “sport” trim – just perfect. I hope it fits!
2) Bargain of the week; J.Crew merino sweater, reduced from £85 to £25.50 here. Not particularly exciting, but very useful and it looks non-itchy, which is a must. The Whistles eyelash trim top I bought makes me want to peel my skin off it’s so itchy! But it looks good, I just have to make sure I wear a cotton t-shirt beneath.
3) Not so sure about these. What do you think? I’ve bought them, anyway. I can always send them back! Isabel Marant, reduced from £205 to £61.50 here. I think the way that they’re styled is great – on the look out for a big, voluminous black sweater, now. Nudge me if you see one!
4) Photos of black clothing – never very easy to see! This has clever twisted ruching at the waist that (hopefully) makes it really flattering. Time will tell. This was reduced from £220 to £66 (here) and I’m hoping that it will be a wise investment!
Right. I must just go and sell tea-towels door-to-door before the credit card bill arrives! If you want even more sales temptation then check out the HUSH sale which started today – my favourite PJs are in there and lots of lovely knitwear. No voluminous black jumpers, unfortunately… HUSH Sale
