Shop The Sales - Top Picks From My Wardrobe

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! As I sit here now after such a busy but really enjoyable day, I could do with a couple of matchsticks to hold my eye's open!

But I did want to let you know about the bargains that can be had online In the sales. Some of my favourite items that are on sale are online and don't come from your average hight street store. I will also list some other high street great buys at the end of the post. Put your feet up with a cuppa and shop!

This easy to wear dress from Nougat London is knocked down in price from £99.00 to £66.00 here

This Trophy Jacket from Bonmarche is now just ££20.00 I can't tell you how many times I have worn it but I did mix it into my winter wardrobe too.

In this photo here I've added a polo-neck long sleeved top underneath in a contrasting colour. This photo was taken at an event that I went to a while back, more about that in a post coming soon. 

This Eastex shirt is now priced at £19.00 originally priced at £59.00 

This dress is from one of my favourite brands Havren Now priced at £77.40 from £129.00

This dress from Alie Street Is now £69.00 from £99.00 Another dress I know! At least you don't have to find matching items!

These Black jeans from Bonmarche are now just £11.00! They sit a little higher on the waistline. I have worn these a lot because of their comfort.

One of my favourite handbag designers is Nadia Minkoff This Pimlico tasselled Clutch now priced at £54.00 is gorgeous. There are some beautiful bags and jewellery on the site, everything is now half price with free UK shipping.
