I used to buy so much in the sales but now I tend not to follow them too closely, at least until after Christmas, when the 70% discounts kick in. At the same time, there are some interesting pieces out there, and I know it is the searching that puts off a lot of you. I have done a round up of my favourite pieces which focus on local boutiques, rather than the usual online retailers, as they are less overwhelming. In addition, at this time of the year, if you are looking for different sizes, your best option is an independent boutique.
For a great dress, pair of boots or knitwear check out Diverse, they have loads of current season pieces now on sale.
Moving onto Bernards Boutique in Esher, they have so many great pieces on sale now including the gorgeous Complet bag featured below – now reduced to £280.
There are so many items from Rixo to Maison Labiche which are worth checking out.
Check out IRIS online – they have great reductions on Isabel Marant. I adore the dress below and it can be worn now and into the Spring. They also have the famous Ganni sweater on sale and they have great reductions on Ulla Johnson. There is also a wide selection of parkas, coats and jackets all reduced to clear.
I adore the Stine Goya dress now on sale at Feather and Stitch.
The Place London has one of the best sales with top designers such as Alice Archer, Sofie D’hoore and loads of other brilliantly procured items. I will be hot footing it over there once I get back to London.
I adore the boutique KJ Laundry and they have also started their own sale – check out the Ulla Johnson dresses and they also have the best array of blouses and sweaters.
I also spotted some lovely sweaters and the trainers below, now on sale at Our Daily Edit
Check out the boutique Fluidity if you are looking for Max Mara or other top end brands, all on sale, all current season and if you are looking for dresses or sweaters they have so many choices.
If you are looking for Helmut Lang, Vince or Isabel Marant the boutique Morgan Clare has a wide selection in their Winter Sale. I would check out Trilogy for jeans – all the top brands are now reduced to £95.
I used to buy lots from Shopbop but I have had so many issues with shipping that I have swapped my allegiance to Ssence, there in no added tax and the delivery is within a week. They have the best prices on Acne, Alexander Wang and Balenciaga. It is the site I am currently stalking as the discounts are already up to 70% and the pieces are the best of all the collections.
