I have always been a sucker for sales. Always. There is something thrilling about nabbing a purchase for an absolute bargain, and even better if it’s something that you have been wanting to buy for some time. With the Thanksgiving break in the US (Happy Thanksgiving!), come the Black Friday sales, and inevitably, at least for me, a purchase or two.
Some, but of course not all, of my most beloved items in my wardrobe have been a result of a successful sale purchase. Like the dress and the shoes I’m wearing – bought on a whim during sale time, yet have more staying power in my wardrobe than some of my planned purchases. Case in point that you never know if something is going to work for you until you buy it and take it home. You might initially be certain, or very sure, but this can quickly fade, as I have learnt time and time again.
Anyway, I was pretty quick to jump at the opportunity of nabbing some much-needed sweaters, gloves and pajamas from the various sales, as well as pulling the trigger on THIS black swimsuit from ASOS. I also managed to get a little bit of my Christmas shopping out of the way, which means less stress for me in the lead up to December 25. Talk about forward planning, I know, but it never hurts to be prepared.
