Best of the Sales: Modcloth

There's 50% off sale items on the US site Modcloth right now, so a perfect time to take advantage of stocking up on some fab retro and vintage clothing, footwear and accessories from America!  I've picked out six of my faves on the new site - as ever, it's so hard to choose just one when the sales are so amazing!  However, I find you can't really go wrong with a Bernie Dexter dress, so how about this 'France and Frolic' one?  A beautiful pastel blue dress with a French flavour, classic and fitted to cinch and flatter the wait and bust.  It's reduced from $155.99 to $77.99 (so about £47) - trĂ©s jolie et chic.
Keep enjoying the sales and I'll keep looking out for the best quality, gorgeous bargains!

Best of the Sales: Van Mildert

Van Mildert stocks some fantastic, designer brands and so when there's a sale, it's definitely worth having a look!  I was simply perusing and noticed that it sells one of my favourite designers, Vivienne Westwood, and lots of her pieces are in the sale with a hefty discount.

I've put a few of my choice pickings on the new site, but my absolute favourite is this Anglomania Sea Monster tartan pencil skirt.  It's got the plaid trend all sewn up but the zany sea monster, hearts and stars pattern makes it edgy and fun.  And of course, a pencil skirt is always flattering and gorgeous.  Team with killer black heels, a black top and funky jewellery and look amazing.  And to top it off, the skirt is on sale with 40% off its RRP of £249 - it's down to £150.

Best of the Sales: French Connection

At this time of year it's hard to not be savvy when it comes to those post-Christmas sales.  This year, most stores are offering at least 50% off items and I suspect it will get even better after the New Year, if one can hold on!

With that in mind, I have been developing another website that looks at what's around - in less detail but more quantity.  It's still going to highlight great value and great quality items but with a wider range.

My first attempt is the French Connection sale.  I've found six items that I really love, that are bargaintastic or are investment pieces.  I think my favourite, for sheer uniqueness and value for money is this Disco Leopard flared skirt.  Originally £95, it's just £28.50 right now!

So please have a look at my new site and let me know what you think!

Riviera Heels from Hotter Shoes

Hotter Shoes aim to produce stylish, good quality shoes with comfort built in.  They do great shoes for work but design more casual footwear also.  And their sale is now on with up to 50% off.

I spotted these great Riviera heeled brogues on the site at the moment.  They are available in black, coffee, dark brown and navy blue and are just perfect for work, day time or on the go.  The heel height is just right to give a little lift without being too high and the rubber sole means that they will fit well and feel great on; for an even better fit, they come in half sizes from a 3 to a 9.  They are fantastic quality being made from suede or leather.  And they're reduced from £80 to £60!

Christmas Savings: Cashback Sites

I must apologise for not having posted for a while.  There have been savings, discounts, sales and wonderful products galore but unfortunately life has got in the way of my discovering and posting about them.  So I thought a quick post about how to save money online this Christmas may be a good way of getting back into the swing of things, and it's this simple.  Use a cashback site!  I've made a page (see tabs above) about the best ones I have found, which are basically TopCashback and Quidco.
By registering with and then clicking through these sites to the online store you want - and make sure any ad-blockers are switched off - purchases are tracked to the site.  Customers will then get a percentage cashback on purchases - anything from about 3% to 10%, on average.  So it's almost like a voucher code.  And, even better, sometimes customers can use voucher codes in addition to cashback so you can maximise savings.

So, if you are shopping online this Christmas, do have a look to see if and how you can get cashback on your purchases.
