Summer sale or first buys for Fall ?






Every season I dream about the first day of sales, I'm like a child anticipating Christmas, I think about the day when I will be able to buy everything from my season's wish list. Well, I should know by now that in reality this is never what happens. The truth is that when the sales start I'm already lusting over the next season... This doesn't mean that I boycot the sales, it just means that I'll look for long-lasting pieces to take me to next seasons. So on my summer sale list I don't have neon dresses or espadrilles, instead I'll look for appropriate pieces that I will want to wear until the end of the year (but don't worry, if I see a pair of neon pink Pigalles with a 50% discount I'll still make an exception).

After taking a first glance of fall/winter collections, this summer sale I know I need to look for black leather (lots of it), embellished tops (specially if they are gold over black), metallic shoes and bags, jeweled-color suede shoes, mid-season sweaters, something leopard and fall appropriate jeans.


Leather dress (theory), Alexander Mcqueen embellished top (my theresa), Marc by Marc Jacobs sweatshirt (my theresa), J Crew leopard pumps (net-a-porter), Marc Jacobs gold bag (my theresa), J Brand waxed jeans (shopbop)



Vince leather shorts (saks), red jeans (topshop), leopard mini-bag (mulberry),
royal blue suede shoes (jimmy choo) metallic pointy-toe shoes (nine west)

How about you, what will you look for during the sales ? Are you still thinking about your summer wardrobe or are you in the fall already ?

Have a great week my lovely readers !

xx Marta

  1. ben je suis comme toi, on habite la même région en plus donc les soldes d'éte... tu m'as d'ailleurs évité une paire de sandales:)
    J'achète en soldes des basiques portables aussi à l'automne et aussi je louche sur les new co, dans ta sélection, le slim rouge j brand, le noir, les sacs, le sweat, la robe en cuir, j'adore et tous sont portables été comme hiver.

  2. I'm completely thinking about summer still but will try to avoid making lots of purchases that won't transition into fall. I always try to stick with classics that work all your round... although, I am still on the hunt for the perfect black bikini. If I could find that in the sale I'd be very happy.

    Bring on Autumn/Winter collections though. Sales get boring fast. xx

    1. yes, I would go for a perfect black bikini too if I find it :) Although, I'm very happy with my black zara bikini, for 30€, it's probably the best value you can get ! and agreed, bring on fall collectins, yeaaaaaaaah !! xx

  3. C'est pareil pour moi; je me fais une fête d'avance des soldes et puis une fois arrivée à "la" date, je n'ai plus trop envie de rien en pensant aux trucs d'hiver. J'ai acheté 2 veste d'été ce WE et ça c'est utile vu le temps. Mais j'évite les robes etc... Je pense que ma liste de soldes va se cantonner à un maillot et à quelques bonnes affaires de fin de soldes. Comme j'ai déjà shoppé en pré-soldes, je ne serai pas frustrée le moins du monde.

    1. J'adore les bonnes affaires de fin de soldes, c'est comme ça que j'ai trouvé mon jeans doré chez zara pour 7,95 €, imbattable ! xx

  5. Agree with previous comments - sales are great, but only when you buy what you really need. Unfortunately, couple times I bought something only because it was sold after I putted only a few times. What a waste of money ;/ This year I am older and smarter that's why I've a plan ! I'm looking for perfect heels and there is no way that I'm going to buy something else ;-)

  7. Super sélection, j'étais partie sur une longue liste mais finalement je raccourcis complètement, j'ai un gros panier de pleins chez American Vintage, je pense que ce sera mes seuls soldes, et je verrais aux dernières démarques, s'il y a des petites affaires à faire qui pourront aller à l'automne ;)

  8. I'm a bit like you. By the time sales season has come around, I've completely lost interest. I tend to use the opportunity to pick up basics at a steep discount though.
