What We Bought: Sale Scores from Paul Smith, Zara, ASOS and More (Forum Shopaholics)

Sale season, when those pieces that have been just a little out of our price range finally become affordable, is fully upon us. Forum members, expert shoppers that they are, have been taking full advantage. Here are some of their most recent buys.

COS-grey-dress Paul-Smith-dress


Tinetush had some luck at the COS sale, where she found this drapey grey dress. “I’d been eyeing it for awhile online and when I entered the store it was hanging there all alone, so obviously I had to snatch it,” she shared.

Liv Liv went bright with an acid yellow check dress by Paul Smith Black Label that she was able to snag on sale. “I’ve been stalking it ever since seeing the black version on Alexa Chung,” she confessed.

Vikingqueen shopped the summer sales, coming away with a Talula Kent blazer from Aritzia and a drapey white top from Zara.



Kenysha75 also went the Zara route. She picked up an architectural white skort and a chunky pair of platform sandals.

Gap-sandals Gap-1969-boyfriend-jean


LagerfledBoy explained his shopping strategy. “I’ve been purchasing a lot of clothing staples. I’m just tired of wearing colorful, bright, trendy pieces. I’m trying to go for a more minimal, clean, simple, 90s look with subtle hints of color here and there.” To that effect, he picked up some sandals and a distressed pair of boyfriend jeans from the Gap’s 1969 line.
