I hope you all had a Very Happy Christmas- ours was spent eating, drinking, watching Christmas TV and relaxing and for me a first, a day at the Christmas Sales.
Younger son had a wishlist and a hole burning in his pocket so we set off to Oxford Sreet, London on Thursday which proved to be most successful and enjoyable! He managed to buy two pairs of trainers which were both half price-saving a whopping £130. We enjoyed a sushi lunch in Wasabi in Oxford Street which was my first proper Japanese sushi experience and very delicious it was too- I will certainly be having it again and it was so nice to have something so fresh, healthy and enjoyable whilst eating out. We were so surprisingly full afterwards so headed for a browse through Soho and Carnaby Street before going into Liberty's, which was amazingly my first ever visit considering the numerous times I have been to London.
I succumbed to the sales too by snapping up a gorgeous blue wool and cashmere animal and tiger print reversible wrap by Mulberry which was half price, saving me a whopping £147.50!!
All shopped out we headed home happy in the knowledge that between us we had saved nearly £300 on items that we truly wanted and will wear-very chez thriftmystyle!!
The outfit below is one I wore last weekend and shows off one of my recent thrift finds from the last boot sale before Christmas- a midnight blue buttersoft leather jacket by Jaeger for only £2. Its a great layering piece under my winter favourite faux fur gilet and I'm also wearing my Guess scarf which my older son got from their SS13 press day for me-it's animal print and stars and one of my favourite scarfs of the moment!!
I am wearing my Pavers boots from a few years back which I have been itching to replace with a lighter sheepskin version-well not replace, but have as an addition. So when Celtic Sheepskin emailed me earlier today with their upto 50% off sale on footwear I snapped up my coveted pair and saved myself £40 in the process. They will hopefully be with me next week and again I've saved on something that I've wanted for ages and wil be wearing straightaway.

So how is your sales shopping going-did you manage to bag the bargains you wanted either by shopping online or going to the sales in person?
In case this is my last post of 2012 I wish everyone a very peaceful, prosperous and happy new year and a successful and fabulous 2013.
