SALES Frenzy vs the ANTICIPATION for the next seasonal trends

As you are all aware at this time of the year sales start and lets admit it, who doesn't love a good bargain like anything made of real leather (actually I'm obsessed - apart from that leather will be a HIT again in the A/W13 collections), or any other designer goods  at real discounted prices!!!

I am constantly finding myself browsing websites (a never ending list) to check whether my long awaited wish list can at last be fulfilled. But most of all what's important for me what to buy during these sales is to anticipate what will be in fashion for the next season. 

"Fashion is a little like time travel, always borrowing from the past but living in the future. Forecasting trends ahead helps inform our choices of what to buy now. What will be seasonal, what will last, what will be capturing our attention and inspiring our tastes 6 months or a year from now?" Tania Brauk√§mper

What I found myself already buying during these sales

  • real leather jacket (Promod - worth buying @ just 69 euros)

  • gladiator leather sandals ( @ around 20 euros)

  • metallic leather flat shoes ( under 20 euros)

And still on my wish list:


Bordeaux Leather Stacked Heel Boots BY MICHAEL KORS 
What to look for/invest during the sales

  • Pencil skirts or how calls the trend as the "pencil case"
  • Animal/snakeskin prints (see Roberto Cavalli collection - actually his trademark)
  • Leather jackets/Leather biker jackets (to wear over evening dresses)
  • Tailored suits
  • White shirts
  • Tailored shorts
  • Floral dresses
  • Leather belts
  • Designer bag (depends on your budget, Micheal Kors, Emilio Pucci, DVF ones are not that extravagantly expensive - under 300 euros)
Open Markets and bazaars are also worth a visit as one can find fashionable items and one-offs at very cheap prices.

As always Happy Sale Shopping and hope you have find that item that you have long awaited or wished for!!
