I love sales. Like, a lot! Most of us do. But when we look a little closer, are these sales actually giving us great value or just adding to the dopamine release in our brains? Some sales are fantastic and those are usually the one’s that happen a little less frequently. Not just cheapo websites constantly discounting to “normal” retail prices to push us to purchase.
Given the whole, will life ever go back to normal and maybe we should be fiscally responsible thing, this Memorial Day weekend there are a lot of sales that I’m avoiding. Instead, I’m going to focus on speciality items that I’ve had my eye on, true necessity items that I’m a little less excited to purchase and investment pieces.
Because many of the sites I love and often shop regularly have discounts/sales I don’t think I need to go ham there, I’m going for things that just aren’t marked down as often. Granted places like ASOS – a favorite and Loft which has 50% off EVERYTHING are amazing if you’re in need, but because those are my go to’s I’m digging a little deeper.
My favorite places for investment pieces will also be places I’ll take a look at. 11 Honore always has something fantastic that I’m lusting after and Henning which is great for luxury classics will be offering 30% off!
Anthropologie is another favorite but has sales much less often and since items are a bit pricier the bang for my buck makes sense. 25% of all clothes and accessories is ca’ute! Here’s what I’m loving.
I’ll also be shopping the Sephora sale because I was too distracted and busy to shop the VIB sale like a responsible human. I’m not really trying new products but rather replacing some of my holy grails! Lastly I’m checking out a few homeware sales like Wayfair’s massive clearance sale and CB2 for things like patio chair cushions, pillows etc.
