THE 'REAL' BARGAINISTA........

 
 
 
It looks like its set to be pretty warm over the weekend. Rain is forecast,
 but the temperature's are staying high.
 
 So, although I am getting into new season mode, I still think that it is worth a last minute look through the sales, and bag a bargain.

I always try to outfit build, even in the sales. Paring cheaper items with something good, makes the whole outfit look expensive.
 
And surely with prices like these it would be rude not to shop, wouldn't it.......?

 Generally I'm more of a silver girl, but I have recently renewed my love of gold with this fabulous jewellery brand.

Worn by the likes of Naomi Watts, Sarah Jessica Parker,  Beyoncé, and Rita Ora, her pieces would normally be way out of my price bracket, as the designer specializes in high end, custom made pieces.

 Her website can be found here JENNIFER FISHER.
 
 When I saw the huge discount on Net-A-Porter's website, I grabbed the chance and treated myself!

You can never go wrong with a stripe, and a dress with a sleeve.

 With its asymmetric hem and soft ruching
you would be on to a winner here......Trainers for now, boots for cooler days.

60's STYLE COTTON CROCHET LACE SWING DRESS
 WAS £35 NOW £25 ACCESSORIZE


I saw a friend wearing this dress, and instantly thought it was designer, as the quality is fabulous.

 I couldn't believe it when she told me where it was from!

Oversize piqué blazer


To stop crochet looking too girlie or high summer I like to play it down with a leather jacket or Mannish oversized blazer, in the style of Leandra Medine, founder of the fashion blog 'The Man Repeller'.

 Adding  'supercool' Superga's just give it the edge
 (see her pic's below).

Oversize piqué blazer.

And finally, if you have a holiday still to come, the hot colours in this River Island Kaftan, would look amazing. Or, with the fabulous summer we are having, it would be great for barbecue's, weekend's, and general lazing around the 'paddling pool'!
