Online purveyor of the coolest and most covetable luxury items, Very Exclusive, has it’s mid-season sale running with 30% off selected items. Timely, as I have now moved back into my house and have an actual wardrobe (just about) and am also in need of some serious treats-to-self in the fashion department. Though I’m limited, admittedly, to things I can breastfeed in. And that are a good size or two bigger than I’d usually wear…
Here’s a little roundup of my sales picks – some stuff that I’ve ordered for myself and some “fantasy purchases”. You can shop the sale here.
Wildfox For President Star Sweater: you’ll know if you’ve read my Very Exclusive sales posts before that I like a bit of Wildfox. Slouchy, soft sweaters that are brilliant for just chucking on when you can’t be bothered to think about what to wear. This one is cheery and bright – £63 down from £99 here.
Black Score Cocoa Channel T-Shirt: I have a canvas bag with this design on and thought that it was very witty, so I was pleased to see that it also came on a pristine white t-shirt. £28 down from £40 here.
Peter Jensen Rabbit Dress: yes, it’s expensive, but LOOK AT THE RABBITS!
I want this so badly, but to breastfeed in it I’d literally have to take the entire thing off and sit in my pants and bra. Which wouldn’t be the best look. Possibly. It’s £227 reduced from £325 here.
Another thing I desperately want but wouldn’t be able to squeeze my giant bangers into: the A Corps Perdu bra from Heidi Klum Intimates. A whisper of lace that would look every-so-sexy peeking out from beneath a silky shirt or little black dress. My favourite nursing bras have been from Heidi Klum Intimates (used to be Elle MacPherson Intimates) and so I think I may be building up a bit of brand loyalty in the lingerie department… £42 down from £60 here.
Oh the irony: I searched on an almost daily basis for a lovely pair of nude sandals over the summer months, but these from Ancient Greek completely slipped through the net. I love the superhero thunder bolts on them yet the sandal shape is otherwise very classic. An injection of humour that very much appeals to me. You can find the Fontini sandals here – they are £84 down from £129 here.
And now for a beauty bonus: would these Anna Sui lipsticks not make the most brilliant little Christmas presents for makeup aficionados? The shade, Paris Pink, looks to be one of those universally flattering kind of tones, and the star-shaped bullet and incredible outer casing will definitely be a crowd-pleaser. The lipsticks are £16 here.
