It’s always a sad time when Christmas Day has passed but you can look forward to the winter sales for a bit of retail therapy. This year has been a terrible one for rain and nothing else, and for what must have been the first time in absolutely ages, it rained on the big day. Even now, on New Year’s Eve as I write this, it’s bucketing down and sounds completely rotten coupled with the howling wind. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to venture outside unless I really need to, so it’s great news to know that there’s some excellent sales happening online.
I’ve been hopping about the web checking out my favourite shops to see what goodies have been knocked down in price, and I’ve not been disappointed. Here’s some of my top picks of the best lingerie and home sale items.
Cath Kidston has a select range of desirable pieces on sale. I really want the useful and pretty Circle Ditsy Hanging Tidy. It’s good to look at and would store umpteen nick-knacks.
Was £18 Now £12
Bravissimo has a variety of sale lingerie, including a piece from their own gorgeous collection, the Bettie Mae Bra. The colour is gorgeous and the plunge style would suit me extremely well.
Was £32 Now £25.50
I love Dotcomgiftshop
for their vintage inspired goods, there’s always something I have to have from their cute and quirky ranges. The exclusive Pantry collection is so sweet and I’m excited to find there’s some in the sale, such as this adorable Set of 6 Spice Tins
Was £9.95 Now £3.95.
is really coming into it’s own these days; their prices are reasonable and the quality really good. The chic nude colour Metal Bow Purse
is stunning and thankfully in the sale!
Was £8 Now £4
collection is something a little more special, like these Black Tie Lace Shorty
knickers. I love the generous lace with the wide satin band featuring a black tie, instead of a run of the mill bow.
Was £22 Now £17.60
Over at Leia Lingerie
the beautiful Freya Martha Bra
is finally in the sale! Featuring soft fabric, pretty butterflies and a fresh aqua trim, this will be the perfect buy to take you into spring.
Was £29 Now £14.50
I always like to have a compact mirror in my bag (for when I get a rogue eyelash or random rabbit fluff in my eye!) The Vicenza Heart Mirror and Photo Frame
in the Debenhams
sale is so cute and stylish. Was £10 Now £5
I’ve picked up a few things in the sales including a wool skater skirt, studded sweater and these two buys which I thought were amazing value and so attractive.
I bought this make up bag from Boots in their half price Christmas catalogue sale for only £4. I hadn’t even noticed it before so I was taken by how pretty it was when I saw it. It’s from the Minnie Couture collection and is such a good quality peach case with chunky brass zipper. The big black bow makes it look very chic too. I’m using it to store my essential make up in.
I then found this awesome little shoulder bag in Primark. It was the only one there still with the full price tag but at the checkout it was just £3! It’s a muted nude/beige colour with velvet black spots and brass clasp. I found it a little too gaping when I put my purse in so I stitched the four corners where the strap ends meet the bag and now it’s better and much safer.
There’s so much good stuff in the sales right now, have you spotted a bargain? Which shops would you say are the best to hit for the sales?
