5 Tips for buying during sale season

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday! I haven't done a proper fashion post in a couple of months, I won't get in to why but sometimes life just gets in the way of things!

So, with all the sales going on at the moment I thought it would be a good time to do a post on sale shopping. 


Here are a few tips that I have learned:

1. Don't buy just because it is heavily discounted!

This is at the top of the list because I feel it is most important. This is something that I have always struggled with, most recently I purchased a bright yellow bodysuit that I don't need and will probably never wear but because it was only a few euro I was all over it..what was I thinking? We have to remember that all those few euro purchases do add up and could have gotten you a much better buy! So unless you LOVE it and KNOW you will get wear out of it LEAVE it!

2. Sign up to email lists

Be prepared, sign up to your favourite boutiques and online stores mailing list! You will be kept updated about upcoming sales and special offers. You can sign up to Doll's Closet email list here (exclusive sale starting soon for all of my email subscribers)

3. Stick to classics

Lets face it trends come and go, so something that's in fashion now may not be in fashion when you get around to wearing it. Stick to timeless pieces that won't date like a little black dress, a winter coat or a good pair of jeans.

4. Pick up a bag on sale

I am a self confessed bagaholic. Bags are timeless and really good investments (I do have to remind my husband of this every time I get a new one) My favourite places to check out bags on sale are Brown Thomas, Ted Baker, Guess and River Island. Also keep an eye in TK Maxx as I recently picked up a gorgeous Ted Baker bag at an absolute bargain price. (Thank's to the lovely Edita of YMS Blog for the heads up)

5. Get online or in-store early

Make sure that once you know when a sale is starting you are on it otherwise pieces and sizes will be limited. Also, if you are going sale shopping in-store take it from me DO NOT bring your children or anyone else's for that matter!! You do not need that kind of stress in your life! :)

So there it is, I hope you enjoyed this post. I have popped some of my favorite sale items from Doll's Closet Boutique below.

Have a great weekend.

Lots's of Love,

Donna xoxo
