I did a quick zip around the sales today and as almost always I am drawn to ASOS over all. They have the best selection, the best shipping (I ordered something yesterday (boxing day) and it arrived today (on a SUNDAY!) and the easiest and quickest online returns. I’m a big fan.. plus I paid for premiere membership sometime last year which is something like £9.95 for 12 months next day shipping so I like to use it as much as possible! There were other sales that caught my eye here and there, I was very tempted by the All Saints offers.. 50% off select leather jackets with an ADDITIONAL 20% off online but I ended up finding a beautiful burgundy number at Whistles (via Next) which if it ever arrives (7 week lead time) I will share but I can’t find available online anymore. I did a little in store shopping yesterday, mostly Victoria’s Secret which was epic but again nothing online to share there. While I’m on that, would you guys be interested in posts about underwear? I’ve only recently invested in some really nice day to day stuff from VS and am getting really into the worn to be seen concept of caged bra’s (like the one above) with love cut tops.
All in all I picked up some bits and pieces but I’ve done pretty well to avoid overspending this year. I’ve been concious that I want to save some dollars (literally) for our holiday in THIRTY FIVE DAYS!!!! rather than spend it for the ske of it in the sales. I did do a teeny bit of pre-sales shopping thanks to Zeek however who sent me a credit to buy a voucher via their app. I’ve spoken about them before (and I’ll show you what I got once it arrived) but the general idea is that you can buy and sell unwanted gift cards via an app. It’s really easy and whether you’re online shopping and looking to save a little extra (eg. you could buy a £50 Topshop voucher for £45 and use it instantly) or looking to make some cash from the gift cards you’ve been given it’s a really useful tool.
Once we’ve got into further reduction territory in the next week or so I’ll do an under £10 picks post.. they’re my favourites really.. if it’s less than £10 in my mind it’s practically free! There speaks the not so budget shopper side of me.
