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.

Christmas and NYE outfits!

I’m not a Christmassy person. I hate the hype and how crazy town gets both during the day and at night. Going into a shop generally creates the following reaction..

grumpy-cat-christmas

But I do love Christmas outfits! And better yet New Year’s Eve outfits! New Years in my opinion is the time to go all out and be as stunnin as you possibly can be! And all of the clothes featured here can be ordered online so you don’t even have to leave your house and foray into the madness!

My first pick is these imitation leather shorts with embroidery from Bershka. These are so pretty.

Bershka also have the best bodysuits which look great with fitted trousers or a black skirt.

And you can’t beat a velvet top at Christmas.

These gold detailed jeans might not be to everyone’s taste but I love them! bershka gold jeans

This tulle dress is ideal for Christmas or NYE.

I fell in love with this little lace beauty in Topshop a while back. It comes in two lengths a midi and a shorter length. Personally I always go for a mini as I’m petite and I think mid-lengths are very unflattering on petite shapes.

Topshop also have some offers at the moment including this beautiful blue velvet playsuit reduced from €68 to €46. Warning: I’ve tried this on and it’s quite short!

If you want a more modest playsuit, this green one is equally beautiful! And probably slightly warmer!

And if you just prefer dresses, you can’t go wrong with this little black number.

Missguided currently are offering up to 50% off selected dresses until tomorrow at 9am. If you’re looking for something new, these could be ideal.

This eyelet dress is just €21 at the moment.

Yet another velvet beauty this time in burgundy. It’s currently reduced from €42 to €28.

While this purple lace dress is really unusual.

Hope you all enjoyed this brief post and got some Xmas/NYE outfit inspiration. I’m still staying away from the shops (somehow) and very proud to say I haven’t bought any new clothes since August ! However this will be rectified after Christmas, looking forward to sharing my purchases with you all then 😉
