Last Winter I bought the most fabulous pair of over the knee boots in the AllSaints sale. Also in that sale I managed to score the lovely Jumper Dress I’m wearing in the image above which you can see styled another way here. In fact most of my wardrobe has been purchased in one sale or another, as I’ve said before – I’m a sales only shopper!
My reasoning is simply that if I refrain from buying fashion until the sales, I get more bang for my buck. For example these boots were reduced from £498 waaaay down to £199!
Now I’m not saying AllSaints is the be all & end all but for style & quality their sales are definitely at the top of my list. Every year around this time, I end up with something very special for a ridiculously reduced retail price.
Not only that but as a sweetener they offer free delivery & returns when you spend over £150 so trying on a few pieces is a worthwhile endevour.
This current sale is once again chock full of key wardrobe staples with many sizes remaining. I’ve gone through everything to cherry pick the best for you today. These are clothes & shoes I either already own (or have similar versions of) or would like to buy at some point.
Key Boots every girl should own
In my humble opinion there are basically 4 styles of boots that I should have in my wardrobe. There is absolutely no reason why I can’t find these during the sales as long as I’m patient. Sure it’s kinda like playing chicken but let’s be honest, does it matter if I end up getting nothing in the big scheme of things? No it doesn’t, so I wait. And see.
- The low heel Ankle Boot & high heel Ankle Boot
- The Knee-High high heel boot & Knee-High low heel boot.
As far as colours & heel shape are concerned I really don’t think that matters as it’s purely about personal preference. I don’t believe in following trends, heel shapes come & go so I just wear what I like the look of. The same can be said for my colour choices which to be honest, tend to err on the side of neutral. So that’s black, tan or brown & grey or khaki. Mind you I’ve been dreaming of a pair of red boots lately, so we’ll see what the January sales have to offer.
Sales are the ideal way to invest in superior quality knitwear & these days I don’t even have to wait until Summer for the best reductions! The divine knits I’ve chosen today all possess a unique detail that sets them apart from your average jumper. Incidentally the cowl neck jumper on the left I bought in brown many years ago. I still wear it every single Winter & it remains in pristine condition in fact you can see for yourself in this post. Now that’s definitely more than 30 wears right?
Buying out of Season
When you search through sale items remember to keep in mind what you could make use of next Season. Usually these are the best bargains of all! Take this pretty pink silk shirt dress & sliver sandals outfit I put together from the AllSaints sale. This would make a versatile addition to your Summer holiday capsule & a stunning outfit on its own!
The Denim Shirt Dress
Do you have a denim shirt dress? Take no notice of the way AllSaints have styled theirs, instead picture this cool & casual for Summer or Spring. I wear mine regularly with ballet flats or sandals & with a cross-body bag it’s grown up chic. There are many versions of the denim shirt dress in this sale however I have chosen my two favourites which also happen to be half price. Although you probably wouldn’t wear a dress like this for many months, now is definitely the time to buy it!
Next week is my Christmas Party Outfit Post – Arrrgh how fast has this year flown by? I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that I’m turning 50 next year BLOODY HELL!
