I’m not a fan of sale shopping for the sake of it. I prefer to shop with a purpose so my sale strategy tends to be around useful pieces or one-of-a-kind things you’ll never see again.
Of the sale buys I’ve spotted already, the distinctive Miu Miu coat is only worth buying if you absolutely adore those spots (as I do) because it’s such a season-specific piece. But it’s a great standby for weddings etc and will look as good worn casually unfastened as primly zipped.
The Carven jacket is a good price for the quality and versatility (the faux fur collar comes off so you’ll still be wearing this come spring. Plus click on the picture and you can get another 10% off when you use the code XMAS10). And although the Dolce & Gabbana jewelled heels are still quite pricy, they’re worth it to me as it’s rare to find walkable evening heels that are such a dramatic talking point.

I’ve been on a bit of a press days sabbatical this season. PRs have not only spread SS12 press days across October, November and December (back in the day, it was just October), but generally had more events and launches than ever before. I guess competition for press and bloggers’ attention is fiercer than ever but it’s had the opposite effect; instead of ramping up my attendance and coverage, I’ve bailed out altogether.
