My Asos Sale Picks

My Asos Sale Picks

The Asos Sale started today, just after pay-day aren’t they sweet, and before you head off to shop check out a few pieces that have caught my eye, which may or may not already be in my basket!!!

I have to be honest I do love a good Asos bargain, did you see my recent style post? I picked up that dress for £7.50 and I love it. I love how easy it is to shop the sale, especially when something in your saved items has been slashed in price, just like these below. Most of my picks are under £30, real bargains and some have up to 50% off – so what are you waiting for shop, shop, shop!!!

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

There are lots of things I’m lusting for summer, lace-up gladiator sandals, crochet detailed dresses, contrasting candy-coloured arm candy, as well as retro-inspired denim midi’s, floaty tops with lace-up details, suede coats, lace panelled tops and floaty maxi dresses, you’ve guessed it, I’m obsessing over everything Chloé.

There is something about Chloé that just makes me swoon, want to skip out on my mortgage payment and blow my wages on designer gear. I like other designer labels, I even love some, but I don’t lust over them as much as I do Chloé. I was obsessed during Phoebe Philo’s reign and it seems my love is growing deeper now that Clare Waight Keller is at the helm, her retro-inspired bohemian spirit is infectious. I can’t be the only one wanting to be a Chloé girl, can I?

There is one small snag, OK not so small, the designer price tag associated with everything Chloé, we are taking around £1,000 for the gorgeous Chloé Drew bag, which is right at the top of my wishlist, and even a silk crepe tank is going to set you back around £400, so if like me your bank manager wouldn’t be happy if you skipped out on your bills I’ve put together some great alternatives on the highstreet – so you too can get the Chloé look for less.

Shopping: Ice-Cream Dreaming

Shopping: Ice-Cream Dreaming

Finally the sun is shining and the weather is hotting up, just in time to enjoy your favourite ice-cream, I’m either a 99 Flake or Feast kind of gal, and it seems that the high street is having the same feelings, without the calories, as now you can enjoy a novelty clutch, a cool pair of shoes, and even a full-on embellished mini-dress inspired by your favourite ice-cream or lollipops in my latest shopping round-up.

Trend Alert: Shopping For Culottes

Trend Alert: Shopping For Culottes

Everywhere I turn I keep seeing culottes, love or hate them they really are the trouser-of-the-moment, and I can’t decide whether to get on board or not, which of course can only mean one thing, pin lots of pictures and get obsessed until I give in!!!

The first time I thought ‘yeah culottes I like your wide-legged, cropped trouser style’ had to be when I saw these suede beauties, above, from Theory’s spring/summer 2015 collection, aren’t they dreamy. Then doubts streamed in that I so wouldn’t be able to pull those off, or even find them at a more affordable high street price tag, which I have check out this identical pair from Asos, but still I couldn’t commit they’ve been in my saved folder for weeks.
