Christmas Sale Shopping - Fashion

It used to be that the Christmas sales started on Boxing Day, however these days there are 'end of season' sales starting left, right & centre! I can barely keep up (I'm in granny mode again!!). I have so many emails arriving at my inbox tempting me with 25% off here or 50% there. It's very difficult to resist!!

When I was younger, maybe aged 14, 15 and 16, my mum, sister & I would queue at Next from the small hours on Boxing Day morning to grab a bargain and we would stumble out of the shop with carriers full to the brim.

Online shopping is more accessible now and I'm much happier sat at my computer or phone in hand so I don't have to face the crowds. Did you see the footage of Silverburn Shopping Centre on Black Friday? It was crazy!!

If money were no object, I'd be snapping up some of the bargains at Baukjen and Boden. I never buy anything full price at Boden and tend to always wait for the sales!

I love an embellished jumper. This one is from Boden. Was £99, now £49.50

Dartmouth Tunic Dress, from Boden. Was £99, now £69.30

Natalia Dress in Pewter, from Boden. Was £129, now £64.50

Chic Ankle Boot, from Boden. Was £119 now £83.30

Aaaah....so many pretty things and not. enough. money!!

That said, in my lunch break yesterday I did purchase two dresses from Baukjen. I absolutely love their clothing and I do need a few more work outfits for my new job, at least that's how I'm justifying it! The dresses that I've had previously stood the test of time and washed well too. Without further ado, here are the ones that I selected:

I've had the Zoe Knit Dress before in Berry which you can see here in a previous post, but sadly the zip broke (It was two years old and had been worn week in week out, washed countless times...). So I'm happy that I've been able to replace it. I used to wear mine to work, but also dressed it up for drinks & dinner :-)

And whilst I was on the Baukjen website, I spotted this 'wardrobe hero' ruched jersey dress. I'm hoping the ruches will help hide my lumps and bumps!

What are your go-to shops for the festive sales?
