It’s finally time to bust out those peep toes and sling backs! Spring has finally sprung and not a moment too soon. It may still be grey skies with a little sun but the temperature is certainly going up and I couldn’t resist bringing my polka dot Sophia Websters out to play for the first time this year.
I finally understand how most Londoners look flawless and amazing constantly…SAMPLE SALES! This is a phenomenon that rarely makes it’s way to Scotland an let me tell you it is sorely missed. The last time I was in London I went to the House of Hackney and the Sophia Webster sample sales and whilst I spent nearly £300 if I had bought full price my items would have come to well over £1500, insane right?! So how do we fix this? Well sale shopping is always a good opportunity to bag something you can’t afford full price so make sure you sign up to the brands you love newsletters as they will usually give you a hint at when sale is coming or sometimes even first pick and more than likely you will get discount just for signing up. Or there is a little jaunt to London when you hear about a sample sale you just NEED to go to!
I decided to go for a toned down look with a baby pink cable knit jumper and vintage leather jacket, paired with diy distressed jeans and a little polkadot clutch. I’m so in love with these jeans at the moment, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting the bleach*, scissors and cheese grater out and creating a one off pair of jeans! Plus they go with everything so it’s hard not to just wear them everyday! I’ll need to distress another pair, would you guys like a tutorial post or a video?
*If you do decide to DIY distressed jeans remember to use a brand that doesn’t test on animals, such as Tesco own brand or Astonish.
