usually i am not one to get excited about sales, i can never be bothered with the mess in stores or the attitude of shoppers. working in retail as well has taught me that most of the items that go into sale are there for a reason; i.e. they are deemed no longer in trend or have been ripped off by every store on the High Street including Primark! however with a few hours to spend before tonight's night shift at work i have found myself browsing the online stores and suprisingly finding a lot of decent product that has been reduced!
here are my favourite picks of the sale so far, most of these items i know would last all year and not be seen as no longer 'in trend' which is what i think anyone should aim for in the sales.
Elle has a fantastic guide to what sales start when, and a little birdie has told me the Urban Outfitters sale begins tomorrow (Christmas Eve) so all fingers ready on the laptops!
