Hello boys and girls!
I am back after a weekend of BBQ, painting and antiques' fair...!!! Today I wanted to talk about the dilemma of buying full price or waiting for the items on our wish list to go on sale...
Here is an outfit that I wore on saturday to visit Borough Market. I bought the dress and the shoes at the beginning of the season and therefore paid full price (or almost) for them.
The dress is by Miu Miu cruise collection 2011 whereas the shoes are Prada, bought with a small reduction (15%) in Liberty when snow was still on the pavements in january. Everybody thought I was completely crazy to buy such expensive items so early in the season. Well, I think I made the most of them and consider them as two of the best buys of the year. As you can see from the second picture I started wearing the LBD in the winter for a night out, if I could I would wear that dress everyday!!!
Just for your interest accessories in the first picture are as follows: Dior heart charm bracelet, Ice watch and Gucci bag, H&M cardigan. Second picture: Topshop cardigan, Ice watch and Longchamp bag.
So was I right to 'splash the cash'? Do you buy full price to be sure to have the item? Or do you wait risking never seeing it again?
Let me know xxxTheSecretClosetxxx
