I’m back and with me, the sales!! First of all I want to wish you Happy New Year 2016 and all the best for this year. And what a great start to the year with the sales!. Shopping in the sales is a great chance to get good quality items but also they can be dangerous, you may finish with a mountain of things that you don’t need or you are never going to wear. Don’t buy just because it’s a bargain!! and remember the most important: quality instead quantity.
What do you really need? Any basic piece to build your winter wardrobe: a good coat, a parka, suits, sweaters, shirts, a little black dress, jeans, skirts, pants, shoes, bags, gloves, scarves, sunglasses, socks and underwear. Preferably invest in quality and simple items, they will last longer and you will not get tired of them quickly. It’s better to have a good pair of shoes, rather that five pairs: cheap and bad (and they kill your feet).
I will explain in more detail how to build a good wardrobe in another post. Today this is my list for the sales:
