Life has a way of stealing all the attention at the most inconvenient time - hello, what do you mean there is work to be done, don't you see the summer sale has started?! As a result, this comes fashionably late, but then there are still plenty of bargains waiting for a new home, so I thought I may as well go ahead an curate a mini edit in the form of a deconstructed outfit to showcase a few of my top reduced picks.

And while we are at it, let's pretend for one second that I know a thing or two about shopping (understatement of the year). Please behold, my top 3 sale tips

This really is groundbreaking stuff. No really, read on (a pinch of salt might come in handy):

1. Don't buy strong seasonal statement pieces on sale, unless you know you can't live without them. Bear in mind that the sale (be it high end or high street) comes as the season is drawing to an end, so that patchwork python mini you would have sold your mother for when it made its runway debut might no longer be a favourite once the new lot of must-haves land in stores. That skirt though, boy is it still toying with my heart.

2. Look for great basics amongst brands you wouldn't normally be able to afford. Neutral V-necks, slouchy tees, and black leather everything are always a winner, and the sale is the perfect time to build on your go-to pieces.

3. If you are not sure about a 'bargain', just leave it be. Why waste money (albeit a discounted amount) when a sea of new season goodness is about to hit shore. Let's face it you are doomed to spend the next couple of months wishing you had saved some of your beans for say one of them Phillip Lim's zipper sweatshirts, so don't go wasting any extras in the piggy bank.

That said, go with our gut, and remember 'YOLO' ho ho ho.

  8. This is so true. I tend to buy a lot of seasonal key pieces and in the end I don't wear them. It would be so much more useful and efficient to invest in basics. I might return some of the things I just bought and go shopping again haha. xo
