Eye Catching/ Sales Shopping

[Jeffrey Campbell, Topshop, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, River Island]

A wishlist. Or, not strictly speaking a wishlist, but more of a pretty-things-that-caught-my-eye-list!

The boy and I attempted to "do" the sales on Boxing Day afternoon, but the queues to get inside stores & general manic crowds drove us back home. We only live a ten minute walk away from the main shopping street so it wasn't exactly a wasted journey, but I did feel like a pretty lame shopper, not being able to handle the sales crowds! I'm the sort of person who prefers to shop the tail-ends of the sales, with room to browse through all of the rails of items that no one else seemed to want. I've found some of my favourite items that way over the years, so hopefully this year I will unearth some good finds. 

What sort of sales shopper are you? Are you straight in there the minute they begin, or do you prefer to wait until they die down?

  4. I'm the same as you, I like to wait til the end! Unless there's something I particularly want, in which case I will probably order online.
    Love the jumper, it's super cute.
