The new year brings with it the perils of having a mid-month zero bank balance and 2 weeks left until the first of 2010's wages land within our overdrawn grasp. Most of us try and stop the spending sprees spilling over from December, attempt to stay in and save! save! save! Well Save was never a work i felt conformable with, and even though I'm all for the wiser folk amongst us trying incorporate this word into their lives, my wondering eye spies the online sales which are taking place, its then just a slippery slope into the "add to basket" button and a click away from the purchase 'shopping cart' button where the magic begins.
Case in point is the Matches online sale of last seasons goodies, which i find hard to believe were missed by the full price shopper before christmas?! First up is the LOT-78 leather jacket, This chef style high-neck jacket gives an original, utilty feel to the leather outerwear trend and is almost half its original price down from £728, now £428. Layer underneath a cashmere t-shirt from the creative team at Commonwealth which costs £118, was £278!
Next inline is the uber denim brand PRPS, the wash is dark and highlighted with some areas of distress to add a smart lightly rock infused feel - these are the best Japanese denim on the block which were £308 and are now £218. Slip on the sleek black GUCCI brogues which are the height of polished sophistication with a fantastic buckle detail, down from £370 to £228.
Finish off belt up with the printed suede belt by YSL which will contrast with the LOT-78 jacket and add a touch of formal texture, down from £168 to £98.
