Sales Savvy

The January sales can be a great time to find a bargain. Or can they? Sometimes sales items can be expensive mistakes. If you love a bargain, give the following a little thought before you hit the shops.

My best tip to you is to take into account price per wear before purchasing the item. Consider a leather jacket that cost 195 in the sale if you wore it 100 times it would have cost you 95p per wear an inexpensive purchase! Whereas a shirt in the sale which cost 15, and only worn twice will cost you 3.50 per wear. This is an expensive item. Happy bargain hunting... spend wisely and only buy if you really love it.

Coats in velvet, faux fur, prints and folk have come out of the closet as a

style statement. Finish the look with textured scarves and big boots.
