Best January sale buys under €30

January is here and purse strings are tighter than a noose. For the majority of people, it’s a month of cutting back and spending as little as possible.

One year, I did a no new clothes challenge and I fully intended on doing it again this year until I got a tax refund and my resolve weakened!

I’ve been browsing the sales recently and here are some of the best buys under €30 I’ve found.

New Look

The snakeskin trend isn’t going anywhere and I’m quite partial to these boots, €29.99 from New Look.

KLAXON: They are now down to €18 so I bought a pair in a five. They pinch my toes a little but the only six left were discoloured and a bit big for me!

Topshop

Topshop Jervis is probably my favourite place to browse as the merchandising is always amazing, they’ve a huge range of stock, including a good vintage selection and they even have a Nine Crows concession now.

Yesterday, I picked up this little hat for €4 reduced from €20. I’d been on the lookout for a leather look beret and I couldn’t leave it behind!

There are lots of other berets reduced to €4, including this adorable tartan one.

Another gorgeous bargain from Topshop is this stunning strapless dress.

I don’t know if it would suit my body type but it looks amazing. Reduced from €40 to €20.

Mango

I honestly think Mango is possibly the most fashion-forward high street store, even more so than Zara.

These retro style bags were very popular last season and this pearl one is now just €19.99, reduced from €49.99.

Word of warning, these bags are quite heavy before you even put anything into them!

 

There were two pairs of cowboy-style boots from Mango I wanted to include but they were outside the €30 budget!

Bershka

Bershka and all of the Inditex shops (Zara, Stradivarius, Massimo Dutti) are always a good shout for sale bargains, as they tend to stagger their reductions gradually.

This cute vinyl dress looks great layered over a light jumper or polo-neck for daytime or by itself with heels for a night out. Reduced from €35.99 to €17.99.

Another good buy coming in at €27.99 down from €39.99 is this cosy shearling and cord jacket.

Asos

Asos are currently offering up to 70% off in their sale and they have some really good jeans on sale.

I’m loving mom jeans lately and these Vero Moda ones come in at just under €25, down from €41. Shop in sterling and you’ll get them for just over €20.

Two other pairs that both come in at the €25 mark are these Oasis straight leg jeans reduced from €50 and these funky Glamorous jeans with frayed seam details down from €40.

 

With The Spice Girls set to make a comeback in 2019, chunky trainers are still in style.

Channel your inner Baby Spice in these holographic bad boys reduced from €50 down to €18.

Stradvarius

There are some really nice pieces in the Stradivarius sale including this faux leather zip skirt.

It comes in dark purple, beige and brown and is reduced to €12.99 from €19.99.

Another item I really like is this grey long-sleeve t-shirt for only €5.99, reduced from €12.99.

Long sleeve tees are great for this time of the year, you can layer them under a gilet or jumper for extra warmth.

Office

It would be a crime to finish this blog post without including some gorgeous heels because I’m a shoe freak.

I was recently browsing in Office and they have loads of discounts.

These lilac beauties are real leather and only €17 down from a whopping €78 while these studded mules are €30 down from €68.

 

And these western-style boots with silver piping are only €30 down from €56.

I’m quite conscious that many people won’t be spending money at the moment but if you are on the lookout for some bargains, I hope this has provided some inspiration.

I try and show a range of products from different shops in these posts and there are no affiliate links. Let me know if you would like to see more or less of these posts.

Next week I’m going to the River Island Spring/Summer press day and I’m also hoping to do some thrifty homeware posts this year.

Bargain Bonanza: My Sale Shopping Picks

There’s only one cure for the post-Christmas blues: online shopping and hot whiskey. 😛 I’m currently lying in bed feeling very sick and sorry for myself so what better time to browse the best sale bargains?

Missguided is offering up to 75% off sale items. FYI if you have a holiday booked, their swimwear is massively reduced right now. Go forth and shop…

They also have some gorgeous dresses in sale, from causal slip dresses to more glamorous styles. New Year’s Eve outfit dilemmas sorted!

This 2-in 1 leopard camisole dress is reduced from €37.50 to €18.75, great for casual wear.

This black cold shoulder dress is a new twist on the classic slip dress. It’s reduced from €42 to €16.80.

For a New Year’s outfit, I love this Balmain-esque floral red dress.

It has all the Balmain details with zip front and black piping but has a more affordable price tag! This was €105 but now just €42.

Asos is offering up 50% off sale items. Among the shoes I’m lusting after are these own brand silver loafers, €16, reduced from €27.

Another own brand bargain are these studded black flats. At only €22 now, they will be ideal for spring. They were €38 full price.

Daisy Street is one of my favourite footwear brands available on Asos, they have amazing statement ankle boots including these two-tone snakeskin beauties. These are reduced from €47 to €27.33.

I’m a big fan of Zara jeans as they are quite hard-wearing and a good fit. They have lots funky styles in sale from grungy paint-spattered jeggings to pink mom fit jeans.

These are all reduced from €29.95 to €19.95. Word of advice, Zara tends to stagger their reductions so these may go down further in price if you can wait.

Denim-lovers will also appreciate these Zara shirts. These are reduced to €39.99 from €49.95. Still relatively pricey but may be reduced further.

Pretty Little Thing is offering up to 50% off sale items at the moment.

They have some beautiful sequin playsuits and dresses if you’re looking for a little sparkle this New Year’s.

One thing to note about PLT’s sale is that an item may be reduced in one colour but not in another.

For example, the sequin playsuit is reduced from €42 to €16.80 in green, silver and gold but a multi-colour version is still full-price. The premium sequin dress is reduced from €70 to €42.

They also have statement bombers and cute accessories like this chain detail bag and multi-colour scarf. The purple bomber is now 50% off (was €49, now €24), the scarf is €8.40 (was €11.25) and the bag €21 down from €31.

River Island have some great discounts on winter coats at the moment. The cream puffer is half price at €60 and both the brown and pink coats are marked down from €95 to €45.

For sale shopping tips, check out my previous post and for online sale shopping hacks and discounts click here. I’ve rounded up some of the prices as decimal points frustrate me. 😛

Remember to check the returns policy, it will save you a lot of hassle. I recently attempted returning a full-price choker to Forever 21 only to find they don’t accept returns on jewellery.

It was in perfect condition, still in packaging and the receipt was in date! *shakes fist*

I hope you all had a good Christmas and have a lovely New Year also. Do you love or loathe sale shopping? Leave me a comment below.

PS- these are all my personal choices, I didn’t receive any payment or incentive to promote these brands. Thanks for reading as always and don’t forget to check out my InstagramTwitter and Facebook page here.
