What could be better than a long soak in a deliciously scented bath with an excellent book, Relaxing cocktail and an evocative soundtrack?
Except it’s Black Friday shopping bonanza and all the stores are wooing us with the promise of massive savings. My suggestion is to peruse the discounts from the comfort of home and let the online world do the work, leaving more time for that luxurious long bath.
Before I show you this year’s edit I want to remind us of our rules of engagement. These are most important because without good strategy a sale is not a good deal but an extravagant waste. We have all made blues when it comes to discount buys – I try to stick to my rules and my wardrobe is reaping the benefits and so is my wallet.
*Buy what you know works; save adventure for another day.
The Rules Of Engagement
* If a new item hasn’t been worn within 3 days it is unlikely to be; no excitement over something new in the first three days then euphoria is unlikely to strike.
*If 7 days are up and you haven’t worn it then it must be returned.
*After 14 days and there have been no outings, the newest purchase could be considered a mistake; hopefully, it can be sent back.
This sale time I am colour coding – I’m dividing my edit into camel, grey and black. Why?
Because I know we won’t be filled with regret afterwards. These pieces are all great buys and I would be very happy for any of them to compliment my existing wardrobe. xv
Black Friday Edit
camel – we need to talk more about this – pair it with a steel grey
grey – think back to our blush pink conversation – run don’t walk
black – why not? we can always refresh and revive our wardrobe essentials
