Isabel Marant Ring £36?!

I just had to blog about this ring- in my sales trawling on Net-a-porter (it's good, 50% off!!) I found this beautiful ring by Isabel Marant reduced from £60 to £36!

So pretty!

They also have some matching turtle earrings by J Crew which are very cute and different- and affordable in the sale!

Using accessories is a great way to create a polished look (and spruce up an old or very cheap outfit).  Something I haven't quite got the hang of but I'm trying!!

To see my run down on the clothing sales see my previous post (now updated) or to see my beauty bargains & online sales overview click this link!

I love that I can shop from my warm bed with the tv on, while other made people are rammed in queues, surrounded by snot and germs and fighting to get a look!  You wont catch me doing that! Online is the only shop I'm visiting today!!  Any other bargains to report?

Pick of the Clothing Sales

Well, it's that time again!  Sales, Sales and Sales.  I have had a quick look this morning and found a few good bargains that I have ordered!  I though I would share them with you and ask for any recommendations.

French Connection has up to 75% off.  I cant wear everything of theirs but I do find that some of it is 'tall-girl' friendly! Hurrah.
French Connection Suzy Dress £130 reduced to £60

French Connection Ali Drape Cowel Neck Dress £45 reduced to £11!!
They have some gorgeous sparkly numbers, so if your New Year's dress isn't sorted.... move quickly!!

Reiss can be a little odd on sizing (no bigger sizes, and by big I mean 'normal but big for Reiss...sigh'), but hit it right and it is great!  I would have bought this dress if it hadn't sold out in my size- I will stalk for returns!! It' is.... The EMMA!! (link)  A perfect glitter party dress.... one to store for next Christmas!

I have my eye on a few other Reiss items including a few accessories (the belts are gorgeous!)... If I can't marry Prince William, then I'll just have to steal Kate's wardrobe instead (she is a tall girl- I did a Star Style article on her a while back...)

TOPSHOP TALL! YES!! Link! A whole section for us ladies!  I love the blue peplum dress for £28... and this metallic skirt for £15! Bargain!

Zara is my next port of call- I havent tried the trousers there, but a skirt suit and jackets are the perfect fit for me- normally- though I prefer to try them on.  However I hate fighting my way through loads of crazy women desperate to snatch items off the rails from in front of your nose all in aid of getting a sale bargain....

Where do you head for during the sales?  What have you picked up so far?  Any recommendations?

I hope you had a great Christmas.  I realised I posted on my beauty/lifestyle blog, but not here, so a belated season's greetings to all of you!  Enjoy the rest of 2012, and lets make 2013 the year of fashion that fits!

UPDATE: Skip Zara- overpriced and not great.  Do head to ASOS for cute Cath Kidston, some nice Wildfox and J Crew items (including gorgeous belts!).  Net-a-porter... how my bank hates you right now.  Gorgeous jumpers (50% off) and a good pair of sunglasses for the spring sun... it's coming!!  And finally House of Fraser- good port of call (Check out this Biba top for £14!)

Two more I'm off to check Oasis for tops and Dorothy Perkins Tall (I hear there is a pretty good sale on with further discounts online).
