This year I accomplished 2 things during the sales: #1 I actually bought something that I was looking for to find on sales (the blazer from Zara). I had tried it on when it came out and loved it but I decided to wait and it actually paid off. Blazers are always easy to find at the sales, but I’m really happy that I got the one. #2 I only bought 4 items. That’s right, no clutter, no cheap stuff to clog my wardrobe, only 4 pieces (and I actually regret one of them).
I wanted Jeffrey Campbell shoes for too long, it’s a fact. I survived the “Lita” fever, didn’t buy any, but this year I was looking for comfortable everyday shoes, something between sandals and ankle boots for summer, so I thought these JC’s would be perfect, especially at half-price.But they ended up being a bit too tight and hurt. I gave them too many chances (since leather is supposed to stretch a bit), but nop. No chance. So here’s a tip if you buy JC shoes: order a half size bigger than your size.
As for the pants, they’re in faux-leather, kinda baggy and warm, very warm, so I’m saving them for winter times, therefor I don’t have much more to say about them, since I haven’t wore them yet. But they seem comfortable and cool, and I got a really good deal on them.
Last but not least: the suede jacket. For me leather jackets are never too much, I have to admit, especially because I have a few leather jackets in my wardrobe already, but this one was actually bought out of necessity. That’s right, necessity! I bought it in Helsinki this summer, because I was freezing! I had only tops and lightweight clothing while there and even in the summer the temperatures were something between 6º-12º ! Luckily for me the stores at Kampii (the shopping center) were all on sale and I got this jacket for half price at Mango and I’m very happy with it.
Soon I’ll make a post with some pictures from the trip to Helsinki to share with you
