Now the first item on my list are the Juicy Couture Jeggings from net-a-porter to assist in feeding my addiction to all things "leggings" at the moment, as they comfortably hug an ever expanding Christmas waistline without making you look as though you have a cheese wire around your midriff and tuck neatly into boots minus the slight bulk you get, even with the skinniest of jeans. These are not on sale but are a very reasonable £78.
Whilst on the net-a-porter site browsing the online sale, I came across this chunky knit from See by Chloe. I know I swore I wouldn't buy any more knitwear to go all bobbly, but I fell in love with its loose, casual shape and thought the whole outfit looked really cool and I could wear the Juicy Jeggings with it.
So then of course I was on the look out for a check shirt to wear in a similar way as the APC one pictured with the cardigan and I stumbled across this one from Hobbs on sale for only £19 from £69!
Then the lovely people at http://www.matchesfashion.com/ sent me a picture on Twitter of this amazing Bottega Veneta bag and my heart almost skipped a beat, it is True Love as all "it" bag and shoe lovers know it, but then it is not really an "it" bag, with its classic looks, to me, it is reminiscent of a Hermes without the extortionate price tag or waiting list! This little number is reduced from £985 to £668, even if it went to half price I doubt I could manage it at the moment and it is bound to be sold out by Januarys pay day (she says sobbing quietly).
Other things I have identified as missing from my wardrobe, are a few staple pieces, (yes I think finally, I am getting the hang of this "staple" malarkey) such as ballet pumps as I missed out on the Reiss ones, I would really like some more Jimmy Choo flats, I wore my black pair to death and still did well when I sold them on ebay last year, I love the signature gold plate on the back and the non slip sole (nearly once broke my neck in the rain, in Chloe Paddington's with leather soles) I also need more jeans and most definitely a white pair for summer which I needed last year, but never got. I love True Religion jeans and find them so comfortable, so these will do, now £112 again at net-a-porter.
Another thing I have wanted for the last few years and haven't got round to getting are a pair of Gina Athena flip flops at £395
but I could cope with having these ones from www.brownsfashion.com on sale from £550 to £275
So I am going to try hard and concentrate on getting the things needed rather than waste money when I see a sale on, which will be hard as I have identified that I seriously love a bargain, like this cute Jimmy Choo bag reduced from £495 to £247.50 at http://www.jimmychoo.com/ I was thinking with its metallic sheen it could double up for evening as I hate using a Clutch, I just can't fit enough in them.
So what have you bought in the sales or are you planning to buy an wardrobe staples at a bargain price?
