Sale shopping wisely

You know the saying: do as the blogger says, not as the blogger does. So here are some advice from me, about shopping wisely during sale period, advices that if i would remember in the shopping craze, my account will look a lot better :)

1. Go for the brands
Instead of buying 10 items that were not that expensive from the beginning, just because they are on sale, go for quality, designer clothes now affordable because of the sales.
Designer, brand clothes come with very good quality and have the advantage of remaining chic and fashionable for many years.

2. T-shirts
Winter or summer time, t-shirts are a basic piece of your wardrobe. So you are safe if you decide to invest in some reduced t-shirts: you can be sure you can were them next season, for example under a cardigan if it's fall/winter we are talking about.

3. Evening gowns
Every seasonal collection has it's share of evening gowns. During sale time, invest in confidence in such an items. At the next marriage you have to attend no one will remark that your exquisite dress is last season, they are timeless.

4. Transitional pieces
Look for transitional clothes, that, with a different approach, can become part of your next season outfits. The best example: cardigans - every collection features such items, spring/summer or fall/winter alike.

5. Handbags
It's always good to pick a nice, classic handbag during sale time. I am talking about always-in-style black or brown nice handbags, preferably in leather, that usually match half of your wardrobe.

6. Classic clothes
A black blazer, the little black dress, an white shirt: those kind of clothes are time-less, every season you can reinvent them, mixing them in fashionable, trendy outfits, with the right accessories!
