I'm delighted to hear that lots of you are going to do the challenge with me and that's so encouraging too. I hope it helps you to streamline your wardrobe in some small way - and makes getting dressed a bit easier. I think it will also help you work out what key pieces are missing from your wardrobe. I'm already making a list for February.
But I just wanted to quickly share what I got in the sales as promised. First up, some knitwear and I bought two merino crew necks in the Benetton sale. Some colours were reduced to £25 and others to £15. I picked up two that had been reduced to £15....one green and one pink - you can see them in the photo below and I'm wearing the pink one in the next photo. Bright for me I know but I wear black and navy bottoms to work all the time and wanted to brighten myself up a bit!
I also picked up the blue ruffle neck (and sleeve) jumper in the picture above. From Oasis, it's got quite a neat fit...perfect for wearing with wide leg trousers. I'll wear it this week to show it better...it's unfortunately not available online.While in Benetton I got a white shirt, a white jersey top and my biggest splurge (thanks to my mother in law's Christmas gift), a Benetton black down puffa coat - all feature in yesterday's post with links.
from Boden - the Tilly one in red, which you'll have seen on my last post, and the Katrina jumper in mink, which went back. It's gorgeous, soft and has a lovely button detail on the shoulders but the colour didn't do much for me.
grey faux leather waterfall jacket that I tried on during my Victoria Square styling session last month. I loved it at the time but couldn't justify it....but it's down to £30 now and I can't wait to wear it when the weather warms up a bit.
And my final purchase which hasn't arrived yet is a fresh pair of Dune London Pondos. Regular readers will know how much I adore and wear these black ankle boots from Dune that my husband got me last Christmas. Well, I've been keeping an eye out for a new pair as I have worn these ones to death all year. There's still plenty of life in them yet so I'll keep this new pair in storage for now. I got them brand new from eBay for just £43. Result - as they're still on sale on the Dune London site for £104. If you have something you love - don't hesitate to repurchase. I'm already kicking myself for not getting another pair of Seven Boot Lane Eloise boots in the sale - my size is all sold out now.
Oh and before I go, I've just read an email from my contact in Seven Boot Lane and they've given me a code for 20% off their winter sale prices. Simply use EXTRA20 at check out. Wow...I'm off for another look at the entire sale range right now..
Finishing with Day 3 of the challenge - with 5 minutes to get dressed today, it was a no brainer - the Hush Etoile jumper with my Topshop Jamie jeans and New Balance trainers. Oh and for anyone with any money left, the Hush sale starts tomorrow though none of the nice jumpers are left :(
