The height of sales season is upon us and the Fashion Spot’s forum members are taking advantage of all the discounts and deals to be found. Buying big-ticket items at reduced prices during the sales always feels like a victory, even when the shopping sprees still manage to put a significant dent in our savings. Read on for a selection of victorious buys from the past week.
PrincessImp confessed to her latest purchases: “I finally succumbed to the Net-a-Porter sale and treated myself to two tops from Rick Owens. One from his Lilies line, the other from Drkshdw… I have been waiting for these tops to be marked down forever and since they were still available in my size, it was meant to be!”
Advo lucked out in the shoe department this week, tracking down two coveted pairs of sandals and getting both of them at sale prices. The black Prada platforms have been a hot item since they hit the sales floor, and rochasfille expressed her envy, saying, “Advo, [you’re] so lucky you tracked down those Pradas – I could never find a pair in my size, and they are such classics.” Advo was also lucky enough to track down the Chloé sandals with jeweled ankle straps that she wanted since she “saw them on Kate Bosworth.”
Luluposh stocked up on some basics this week, and among those basics was this oatmeal-colored linen dress from Uniqlo.
RedandNavy was thrilled with her latest purchase and their transformative effect on her wardrobe. “I bought these gorgeous, cool, perfect mustard colored Acne Short Pistol Boots today!” she wrote. “They fit perfectly into my wardrobe, making my classic items look cooler and more interesting without clashing too much. LOVE THEM!!!”
Lucy92 picked up a couple of animal tees from Forever21’s World Wildlife Fund collection. Not usually a fan of Forever21, she was comforted that “at least some of the proceeds of these shirts went to charity.”
Rochasfille may not have gotten Prada platform sandals, but she “did however, get these Proenza Schouler wedges on sale from La Garçonne.” We definitely don't need to feel bad that she missed out on the Pradas because these are a great consolation prize.
Lola rose went sale shopping at Zara and one of her purchases there was this khaki-colored Studio overcoat that looks perfect for transitional weather.
