Working in fashion can be very dangerous for you. It makes you wanna buy everything. You discover new brands, new styles, new bargains and you end up wanting all of them. That’s me at least. And I’m not happy to admit that I still have a handful of items I haven’t worn yet. So to make myself feel better about spending all my money on clothes and accessories, I often buy reduced items. I don’t remember when I last bought a full priced piece of clothing. But it’s good for me. I don’t follow trends by heart, I don’t mind experiencing and I definitely don’t care if anything I wear is classed as old fashioned.
If you’re in this category, then I’ve got some news my friend! Sales time is the best time. And don’t even bother going in town and face the madness, online shopping all the way!
End of January I went back home in Romania and found this gorgeous embroidered skirt in a local designer’s shop. It was about £30, only a couple of them have been made, it’s got several layers underneath so it makes you feel like a princess when you wear it. It’s like the sales advisor told me: probably the fabric costed more than £30, you’re so lucky it’s in sale! And top of the iceberg: it’s got tulle, embroidered flowers (proper embroidered, not printed!) and it’s a maxi/midi skirt – it’s got the 17 trends already. The only reason it was reduced – it’s all autumn/winter colours. The irony of sale in the fashion industry. I would have never sold this gorgeous piece for a reduced price.
So to match the gorgeous dress, we had to take some pictures in a gorgeous place. The photos were made in Lake District, all at the same time, no heavy editing on the pictures – however, check how the lighting changes from one photo to another. That’s the Lake District weather, my friends 🙂
