Although the summer weather hasn’t arrived, the summer sales most certainly have. Traipsing through oxford street yesterday, the windows were littered with red up to 60% signs and half price stickers and the shops filled with angry customers, snatching and grabbing at the last few Acne shirts in Selfridges; like seagulls would at a dropped ice-cream.
Generally i hate the sales. I’m a lazy shopper and can’t be arsed to rummage through the rails of leftover tat that was unable to sell at full price during its appropriated season. However, this season, there seemed to be a whole host of bargains on offer…
I managed to bag an Alexander Wang shirt dress for example that i’d wanted, but wasn’t able to afford all season, at a massive 60% off. It’s crisp and white with a beautifully detailed leather collar. Although it’s now sold out at Selfridges, it is available at Matches here: http://www.matchesfashion.com/product/153722
This topshop jumper is a steal at £18. Simple and understated, it’s the perfected trans-seasonal fix when the weather’s acting all temperamental.
This Marni dress has a beautifully detailed and playful collar which balances the prim and ladylike pleated skirt perfectly. It’s a total must have at £75.
Finally, this Acne jacket is a total investment piece. Great dressed up over a beautiful dress or paired down with some cult skinny jeans, this jacket will go with almost anything and will carry you through summer to winter. http://bit.ly/11Ulwnk
