And that is something I struggle with at sale time, getting caught up in the bargains, the bigger the reduction the better in my book and I find it difficult to restrain myself. I have a wishlist of items, some of which I can't find exactly what I'm looking for, but when the Boden sale started I had a couple of pieces in mind so spent some of my birthday money wisely.
Image via Fashion Foie GrasThe zebra print t-bar flats had been on my wishlist since I first saw them on the Fashion Foie Gras Blog at the beginning of September. My love of animal prints is well documented but there is no zebra in the house and I thought these would be the perfect way to add print to an otherwise neutral outfit and am pleased to report the sizing is good, the embellished flats are quite tight but these feel really comfortable, although I haven't been outside the house in them as yet! I would of liked a bigger reduction but was worried they might go out of stock in my size which is what usually happens when I try and hold my nerve and I wasn't prepared to take a risk on these.

There are plenty of leopard print accessories and a jacket in my wardrobe but I have never had an actual item of clothing before so am super excited to wear this and can see how easily it will dress up or down, in fact I might wear it out Saturday night save wearing the Boden lace top I wore last time (which is now super cheap in the sale). Leopardprint has fast become a wardrobe staple that never dates and looks amazing with black, navy, camel or red so I know I will get lots of wear out of this.
Animal Print Top with 40% off now £21.00
Other things that I will be keeping a close eye on as they are also on my wishlist but currently either sold out in my size or not cheap enough are the Perfect Party Top in Daisy Jacquard, The Sequin Cable Jumper, The Off Duty Jumper but only in Navy or Charcoal and have just realised that with 60% off, the Embellished Jumper in grey could be winging it's way to my wardrobe very soon!
And finally I'd like to apologise for not having much time for blogging or commenting at the moment but things are rather hectic at SAEA HQ, not helped by the fact my laptop is broken and trying to borrow one of the kids results in them changing their passwords or leaving them out of battery with the lead hidden to avoid me uploading photo's, not shutting down properly etc etc so my pictures are evener poorer quality than usual and all sorts of funny shapes thanks to the Blogger app which seems to have no continuity or quality for that matter!
So tell me has your heart ruled your head in the Boden sale or have you stuck to your wishlist?
