January. New year, new wardrobe?
That's the logic I always like to apply, much to my mother's dismay. Because seriously we can never have too much sartorial goodness in our lives, can we? Whilst the coming of a new year makes us thankful for all we have, for which I am eternally grateful, there's always the nagging need to hit those shops as soon as we see the 'sale' sign.
The rumour of a sale can send some women in to a fashion frenzy, but I for one have never been one for getting my hands truly dirty, so online sale shopping is far as I stretch myself. I promise you that you will never see me getting up at 5am for first dibs in the shop. Ok, maybe if they were giving away Birkins for 99% off...
For now, I will continue to peruse the online selection with my imaginary (but hard earned of course) pennies. So, I ask you dear reader, if you had a nice stash of dosh, what would be on your hit list? I've complied my favourite sale picks for this new year, picks that are just so far from my reach. All I can tell you is I'm craving a hint of monochrome dashed with some berry tones and interesting textures. My favourite, albeit most ridiculous, of the bunch has to be the faux fur trim boots from my beloved Acne. Oh-so over the top, but also the perfect addition to any seasonal wardrobe. How can you have a miserable day with these beauties on your feet? Exactly.
Again on the Acne hit list, the ever popular cable knit - with even Jeezy, alongside many others, choosing to rock the jade version, I would fulfil my inner girl quota with the delightful pink option. Which trust me, used to be a rare occasion in my life. It's would seem as I age (oh-so gracefully, obviously) I've been leaning more towards the girl-iest of shades, why else would I feel the need for not one but two fantastic fuchsia numbers. After all, who can say no to a striped MSGM number?
And just because, I'm still the same colour fearing girl deep down inside, I would have to top any outfit off with a nice monochrome detail. Although, a predominantly white bag may be a mistake... She says as if she were actually purchasing said beauty. Dream big as they say! I do blame blogging to a certain extent for my fashion lusting woes, yes there was an established problem long before I hit the blogosphere, but there's certain items I come across, i.e. the rocking Burberry hat, and I dare to think that maybe I can look half as cool as Olivia.
Anyway, the most important question of all, as the ultimate nosey lady that I am, did you get anything good in the sales this year? Or perhaps you take my approach and spend your hypothetical lottery win instead?
