The mid-year sales are a stressful time for me. Daily email alerts reminding me that my favourite retailers have slashed prices, sends me into a tailspin. What if I’m missing out on theSaint Laurent booties I’ve been lusting after for two months? You’ll often read that sale time isn’t the time to buy those statement shoes just because they’re 50% off, because you’ll never wear them. I disagree. I’ve made some of my all-time purchases during an online sale. When you’re scrolling through pages and pages worth of product and something catches your eye and forces you stop and click, it’s worth paying attention to. There’s something to be said for gut instinct, and I say go for it (as long as you're shopping the correct size and not just hoping a size 35 shoe fits your size 40 feet).
Keep scrolling to see the pieces that made me stop mid-scroll. They’re not all ‘classic pieces’ that I’ll keep forever, but I love them anyway, and that will do for me.
