Patience is a Virtue

It’s not too late to find those hidden gems in the summer sale that will last for seasons to come. It’s all too easy to get enticed by current season trends at a bargain price but is it really a steal when it sits in your wardrobe untouched until chucking out time? You may think you’re saving money but would you have considered buying it full price? If the answer’s no then don’t buy it.

The sale started weeks ago so you may think there’s nothing left but new lines are being added and further reductions are being made across all your high street favourites and online designer outlets.  Now is the time to get that otherwise guilty purchase you’ve been eyeing up for months, aren’t you glad you waited?!

Here are some of my top finds amongst the sales clutter…

It’s OK to Crochet

For many the word ‘crochet’ means knitted tea cosies and jumpers your Granny made you.  When it comes to thinking of crochet as stylish, you may then be quick to regard it as anything but.  

The intricate craftmanship however can make for a covetable piece, think Missoni and you know where I’m going with this. Whether you favour designer brands or the high street (or like me a bit of both!), you will see various takes on crochet for your upcoming holidays and festival season, whether it be Melissa Odabash’s beachwear or Toms’ slip on pumps.

Looking ahead to the Autumn with some transitional pieces as crochet takes on a thicker wool, you need look no further than Topshop’s colourful patchworks which maintain the boho style but veer away from the pretty pastels associated with the Summer.  Here are some of my top picks…
