Shopping the Sales

As I am off work until January, I've had plenty of time to browse the internet for sale bargains!

Collectif is one of my favourite shops for affordable vintage reproduction clothing and until TOMORROW have an amazing 40% off 

Amongst a few other things I have already purchased this gorgeous Dolores top in red and blue and white polka dot. I already have this in black and get so much wear out of it! With 40% off, this top is only £15!


I am also in desperate need of a new winter coat. After trawling the busy high street on Thursday, I hadn't found a single coat I liked. This short Mariella coat is gorgeous - I don't know why I didn't get this with my original order! With 40% off, this coat is only £69, which is pretty reasonable.


Dorothy Perkins is one of my favourite high street stores. Surprisingly they stock a range of vintage style dresses that are affordable and made out of modern materials, so you can get a bit more wear from them.

They are currently offering an additional 10% off sale items if you buy online too. So far I have found 12 dresses that I love! They still appear to have a good stock of sizes too.

This Black Ottoman dress is currently £17.10 with the additional 10% off for shopping online. This would be a great dress for work or teamed with a beehive and flicks of eyeliner for a 60s look. It's also available in Aubergine.



Peplum dresses have been all over the high street this year. They give a nod to a vintage look and are also super flattering - particularly after a Christmas of over-indulging!

There are a range of colours and styles on the website.

My favourites include this Lace print peplum has pretty lace detailing which brightens up the black. The high neck also makes it work appropriate for a bit of office glam! £18 with the additional 10%


This purple lace ponte dress is only £9 with the additional 10% off! A complete bargain and also available in pink, lilac and blue for a bit more money.



The lace sides of this lace panel dress in port are super sculpting for the waist. This dress is £18 and available in purple and teal.


There are lots of other styles in the sale - I could go through these all day!

Time for the shoes! 

I was a bit disappointed with the Schuh instore selection, but their website has a massive range of reduced shoes.

These Irregular Choice oz bowtiful court shoes are my favourites - polka dot with a cute knitted bow and perspex heels. The heels don't look too high either, so could get plenty of wear out of these beauties! These are £49.99 with free delivery and available in red too


The only problem with Irregular Choice shoes is that they soles are almost too pretty to walk on!

These red alisa patent hush puppies are also super cute. Hush puppies are also extremely comfy, so you could walk all day! Now £39.99 and slightly more expensive in black


These Blowfish tarta boots are available in black and tan for £39.99.


Finally these Iron Fist Ladykiller heels - WOW! £39.99


I need to go back to work now to pay for all this! 

This was NOT a sponsored post - these items are just a few personal favourites from websites I like to use. Prices were correct at time of posting.
