My Designer Wardrobe

 You may of noticed I often have quite expensive taste. I am partial to a designer treat as and when the bank balance allows. It's mostly designer shoes which get me weak at the knees (metaphorically and literally, those high heels and bad knees are a bad combination). I can't count on my hands how many designer shoes I now own, but I can count on one hand how many I have bought at full price. Same goes for any other designer clothes I have, I am a sales shopper all the way. 

I consider myself quite a savvy sales shopper too, because every item I have I still love and still wear. This outfit is an example of that:
The blazer I got two years ago from The Outnet, it's by Alexander Wang (I paid around £250 for it). The leather trousers are from Joseph. I found them in Harvey Nichols in Leeds nearly four years ago now, the last pair and in my size!! (Don't you love it when that happens??). They set me back £200 (here's a little #tbt moment to foreverrrr ago of me wearing them). The shoes were a sale purchase from January sales just gone, from Gianvito Rossi at £225. 

Now I am not saying these are small amounts of money, but for me (and lots of other people), it brings the designer items I have been lusting for into my budget, and I don't hesitate to snap them up! Part of the reason I always treat myself (guilt free, too) is because they are items I wear season after season. 

 When sales shopping I stick with relatively classic pieces. Try not to fall in love with the new price tag, as tempting as it is! That being said, the pieces I buy are rarely ones I have been swooning over for months prior, I am known for some impulse sales buying and it's never turned out bad! Think about what you already have in your wardrobe and how the shoes/clothing will compliment that. If it's a real statement piece, do you know of at least five upcoming occasions you could wear it?? Savvy sales shopping is all about buying what you love, even if it's a huge trend piece doesn't mean you can't wear it beyond that season. Buy what you love, let the price tag tempt you, and enjoy your purchase!
