Sales are the time I take the most risks with my purchases. I have this thing about paying too much for items that aren't necessarily classic or items I'm not necessarily 100% sold on. Longevity I can justify a price tag for. These Alexander Wang Chloe's are quite funked up, sporty (even moto-esque) and a complex combination of textures, so I questioned whether they would still be on a regular wardrobe rotation in five years time. As soon as they arrived I knew they would be and had me questioning how I ever doubted it. The 40% off didn't hurt either.
Finally a pair of heels I can wear with casual items (when I prefer a little added height) and as a substitute to my much loved Isabel Marant sneakers. Variety is the spice of life after all and women need shoes... and handbags... My weaknesses have been exposed.

These shoes are the first of my sales buys to arrive so I'm eager for the next few parcels since these have turned out to be such a success. How is everyone else's sales purchases going? I've heard from quite a few ladies that they have been reserved and 'good' since fall is just around the corner. I have aspirations to move past the sales (I really do) to get ready for the fabulous fall collections, but there seems to be a multitude of items at discounted prices (that were on my wish list), it's difficult to shift focus. This week though, I'm going to make an effort to scout the up-coming collections.
Action shots will surely follow shortly. I'm even going to brave the winter chill to take these babies out ASAP. It's funny how a new buy can make you want to wear something that's totally inappropriate for the weather. Others do this too right?
