It’s half yearly sales season here, and I would guess in most of the rest of the world. So if you really feel you need to go shopping, or are on a budget and want to the most bang for your bucks, what are the items I’d suggest that you look for in the sales?
1. Knee high boots
2. Great flat shoes (everyday shoes)
3. Winter coat
5. Great high quality wool and cashmere knitwear
6. Quality handbag
Don’t be lured in the sales to buy clothes that you wouldn’t wear normally, clothes that might be handy one day, just because they’re cheap. This is the time to steel your nerves and really hunt down some fabulous items.
This list is all of those staple items that we all need in our wardrobes, that can get worn out over time, and because they’re costly, we may put off replacing. So if you start looking for them in the sales you have a better chance of finding something that will last through the next 5 seasons or even more (some of my boots I’ve had 10+ years).
Avoid the end of season, end of trend clothes that you may find in the sales that nobody bought or that the trend is now on wane, there is no point in buying into a trend when it’s cheap as you won’t get the value and cost-per-wear of the item.
Just remember, don’t go shopping if you really don’t need anything and are just trying to fill an emotional hole. Shop with a list and shop only for what is fabulous and stirs your soul.
