It’s that time again…. it’s sale time! I must confess I’m not a massive sale shopper if I really want something I will splash out but sale time is a great time to stock up on basics, pick up a bargain that’s already ‘in’ for next season or to try something totally new fashion wise, at a great price. The Dressing Room sale starts Saturday 29th June online and instore and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of some of the pieces going on sale, and 4 pieces really caught my eye….
The Grey Sweater
I have talked about or ‘gone on’ about, you decide, grey sweaters before in posts, they just go with anything and should be a staple in any girls wardrobe. This rolled sleeved cotton sweater from Great Plains is such a good quality buy at £20 reduced from £30, it has that sports luxe feel to it, a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anyway anytime soon – which pleases me! This sweater can be worn dressed down with jeans or shorts but would also look fab with a pencil skirt and heels.
Coloured jeans are still everywhere and while I wasn’t a huge fan to start with but I am slowly being converted. Now this isn’t a colour I would normally pick but these Lavender Dr Denim jeans at £29 reduced from £42 are worth trying on. These are more like ‘jeggings‘ then proper denim and they looked so tiny when I picked them up, I didn’t think my thighs or backside could wriggle in, but they did! I am a UK size 10 and these are a medium. They have quite a high waist so no muffin top and these would work really well with longer tops if you are a bit bottom self conscious. They are also quite long, I am 5ft7” and had to roll up these a little to wear with my high Dunks.
The ‘Buy Now’ for AW Jean
Military colours and camo print is going to be huge for AW13 and this pleases me a no end! So these Current/Elliott Ankle Jeans are a perfect buy taking you stylishly into the new season. These are a military green with a kind of Zebra stripe through them, not quite camo I know but I think these give a nod to both the camo and patterned trouser trend. This style, for me, is a little bit on the small size; these are a 28 but I think a 29 might have been a better fit – just try them. These jeans can be worn both for day or night and reduced from £185 to £110, they would be a great addition to any wardrobe.
The ‘Just because I like it’ Jumper
I have already blogged about my love for American Vintage pieces and this slouchy jumper is just perfect. It’s a turquoise colour which I love for summer and can be worn over a shirt, layered with other American Vintage pieces or worn by itself. Surprinsly this colour goes with a lot in my wardrobe, it’s one of those tops that you have to try on, I must confess until I tried it on I didn’t have that much love for it, then once it was on BOOM! Who doesn’t love a slouchy sweater?! This is currently reduced to £75 from £111
As usual there is so much at The Dressing Room I could pick out but these 4 pieces won’t break the bank and will last season after season. And for some lucky ladies the first 20 customers through the door on Saturday will receive a further 10% off the discounted price! Let me know what you bag in the sale! Did you take a fashion risk on something you wouldn’t normally go for this sale season, spill the beans.
