Oh GOD the bloody sales. They’ll be the financial death of me, they really will this summer. I thought 2008/2009 were brilliant for sales shopping (hello crash), but this summer has been really exceptionally good on the bargains front. (Although I will allow that I have been looking more as I have more spending money as my rent has been less this year.)
I popped into Whistles on St Christopher’s Place on Friday to pick up my dress for the polo today, and there by the door was a display of the handbags, including the one I have been wanting all summer (but definitely not needing). And it was reduced. From £135 to £65. As were two credit card cases. From £15 to £7. I am fed up with fishing my credit cards out of the bottom of my handbag, and I have been looking for something like this for ages that wasn’t too expensive (as they get so battered amongst the detritus of my bag).
