Shopping sales

I must admit that I've gone a little insane this beginning of the year sales. I mean...There were literally some days that i spent thinking about were to shop next.
But the result is somehow...well, OK.

First, there were the sales in Wien. Bally was a sure target, and i ended up with a pair of block color shoes in red and green. Oh, and i went also to Peek and Clopenburg, usually a very nice store to shop in, but this time of the year it was so full of people, that the air was not even breathable. I bought a belt from Versace Jeans just not to leave with empty hands, and because a friend of mine was already in a good position at the queues from the cashiers.

Going back home we stoped at the Outlet near Wien (Parndorf), were everything had an additional reduction. I was tempted by a pair of leather pants from Versace (from 1000 reduced to 300 euro), but i finally bought a cute multicolor blazer from Escada and a navy and white skirt from the same store.

Back home, i got the mail with the 75%off announce from, and i was lucky enough to get my hands on TWO chloe bags, with a 75% sale. I am talking about a large BAY in white patent and a small Eddie leather shoulder bag. Thene there were shoes: a pair of Juniper slingback sandals from Michael Kors that i was eyeing for some time now and the pair of Brogue-style pumps from Miu Miu i was lusting over the entire last season.
I also picked some blouses: an owl print t-shirt, See by Chloe, a Crochet back sweater from Helmut Lang (adorable) and a ribbed wool sweater from Derek Lam (so versatile).
A belt from Chloe and a wrap dress from Diane von Furstenberg completed the order.

Insane, didn't i tell you?
But, did i stop here? Nooo, i want to be broke completely till the end of the month, that is for sure. Next, i visited Victoria's Secret, for some unresolved "business" left there a while ago. I am talking of course about a ruched one-piece swim suit from DKNY in a glamour pink color. I added also a swim suit from Michael Kors while there (because 7 days by the sea side definitely require more that one swimsuit, right?).
Then i just wanted to see the brutal pair of boots from Sam Edelman everyone in the blogosphere is talking about, and that's how i felt in love with the pair of Lace-up boots from the same designer (picture bellow).
Just for fun i also bought a cute clutch from Steven Madden (reduced at 19$) in bright pink. Who knows when i will need it desperately, right?

It was then "La Redoute" time. A mini high waist skirt from the collection LOU DOILLON design for LA REDOUTE is just perfect for office, and a matching pair of ballerinas and large bag from Antik Batik was just what i was pictured for this spring romantic trend.

In Bucharest the sales started 2 days ago, but i didn't yet find the time to visit properly the shops. I only went to Mango, from were i bought 2 dresses: one black, office style and one with a flower pattern, for the summer. More to come! :) Oh, yes, and i am still having some items in my "La Redoute" basket...
