Sale picks | ASOS and AX Paris

You may have seen me mention in a previous post that I go on secondment to another job next month and in order to take this opportunity I’ve had to take a bit of a paycut.  I’ve been trying to make this less of a shock to the system by improving my spending habits in advance of my new wage and my attempts to ‘buy less, buy better’ are going well.  However, I have always been a bit of a sucker for a sale, and coupled with the fact that I fancied getting a few new things for my trip to Florida in a few weeks and to wear to End of the Road festival, I must admit I gave in and had a mini splurge on ASOS.  I tend to not feel too bad about buying a few things from ASOS as I always end up sending half of my order back, plus they had a discount code on the day I ordered for an extra 10% off sale (now expired) so I had too really didn’t I? Here’s what I picked up…

1. Dahlia ditsy floral dress: £19.50

2. Max C Sheer Panel Dress: £17.00

3. Vero Moda Tennis Dress – £12.50

4. Cupcake peplum t-shirt – £12.50

I think the second dress will be perfect for a dinner out whilst we’re away on holiday and I’m planning on wearing the cupcake t-shirt with studded Levis shorts at the festival!

I also got an email from AX Paris this morning as they have a code for an extra 15% off their sale items.  I am finding it very hard to keep my fingers away from the keyboard to stop them having another mini splurge! If I were to allow myself however, here is my wishlist…

1. Fish printed playsuit – £15.99
2. Floral print peplum dress – £19.99
3. Pleat front dress – £11.99
4. Printed wrap dress – £14.99
5. Crochet waist skater dress – £14.99
6. Daisy Printed Cutout Dress – £14.99

My resolve is fast disappearing, I feel the last two at least are going to have to be mine! You can enter EXTRASALE15 for an extra 15% off.

Are you resisting the sales or have you picked up anything new this month?
