Rules to shop by when you hit the sales.

January is the first month of the year and also the month of finding a great bargain since every shop is having a sale to make room for new goods.

I often tell myself to avoid the sales because we often tend to buy things we do not need just because they are cheap. Well being a fashion addict and also a good bargain addict, of course I could not stay away! Who was I kidding anyways lol.

…. but i have set some ground rules for sale shopping.

1)Only buy things you were already interested in when they were full price.

This rule especially counts if you are in the highstreet shops. Because everything is sort of cheap anyways. Choose the pieces wisely. Do not waste your money on trendy pieces that you know you’ll only wear once or not at all. Get a classic winter coat or good knits that you can wear a lot until Spring arrives and during Spring over your flowy dresses. Maybe even during the next Fall/Winter season. Search for pieces that look expensive.

2) make sure you get the right size

We all know how it feels to find the designer shoes, you have been drooling over the past season, on the sale isle. You grab a hold on them and just know that you absolutely need them right!? no matter what it takes! and then you try them on and you know immidiately that the fit is not right at all but you still try again to see what if (what if my feet have become smaller within a few seconds)

fact is you will never ever use the shoes if they are too small and then they will just make you regret spending that money instead of saving them for a better deal.

3) Rather buy 1 piece than 10 you will probably never use

When I go sale shopping I always start in the more expensive departments to see if I can score a designer deal at a reduced price.This could be a good pair of jeans or an amazing knit or coat. I always go for the classic pieces that I can wear again and again. I will rather only buy one piece that I normally would not be able to afford due to the price than buy 10 things at a highstreet shop that I know I will only wear once and then never again.

So these are my 3 ground rules for sale shopping but it really goes for all shopping. Make sure the pieces fit you and your style and you will be good to go.

So what did I invest in this sale you may ask?

well I almost cut of a toe off to fit in a pair of Balenciaga pointy boots but I let them go lol

To be honest I have not really done that much sale shopping this time around, but I did score this offwhite teddy coat this weekend just hanging alone in the shop in my size. it is perfect for the rest of winter and I will definately be saving this coat for next year as well. I got 70% knocked off the price so it turned out to be a great bargain.

Buy & sell preloved fashion with Zadaa app

This weekend I started doing some spring cleaning in my wardrobe to make room for more summer clothes and sandals.

Why do us girls have sooooo much stuff we never use? I feel I say this a lot and either way I always end up with lots and lots of clothing that I only use once! (Or never!)

When I clear out space in my closet I always try and sell the best of the pieces I am not using anymore and the rest I donate to charity.

The good pieces that have rarely been worn I try and sell online and recently I found a new app that can help me get rid of some of my clutter!

I have uploaded a few items on Zadaa marketplace app that helps me sell my preloved fashion items.

One womans trash is another womans treasure right?

The Zadaa app is very easy to work with and has some very cool features that makes the search for your next preloved bargain much easier.

for example you can add your size and hight into the app and it automatically matches items in the app that fits you!

This means that you do not have to go through endless amount of items that do not fit you bodytype.

The best part about the app is: Zadaa has buyer protection!

Which means that Zadaa will refund your money, if the purchased item, never shows up!

I have already found some great preloved items and added them to my spring/summer wishlist.

Download the Zadaa app here and start buying new tings for your wardrobe or start selling your preloved pieces.

Are you ready to shop from more than 100,000 wardrobes?!

In collaboration with Zadaa.

Shades of grey

The first month of 2018 has past and we are slowly beginning to get lighter days.

My mind is already in spring mode, but I have to wait a little while longer before I get to storage my winter coats.

Therefore I am sharing this classic grey one that I got a few years back and it is still one of my favourites! It has a classic menswear cut and keeps me warm all during winter.

I love the fact that I can reuse items from previous seasons – that is why I always splurge a bit more on classic pieces because I know it will last season after season.

This time I styled it with other shades of grey and black accessories.

Do you splurge on classic pieces too?

I feel like it gives more bang for your buck.

January Layers

Hi Guys,

Happy almost weekend!

January is super dark and cold around here so layering up is key to keeping warm!

(I am wearing double socks in these kicks lol)

The hours with light are so few that one only hopes for spring or a paradise island with palmtrees, sand and a cold drink lol

Luckily the days are getting longer and before we know it spring and blossoms will be in the air again.

therefore we have to enjoy our winter wardropes for a little while longer.

I love wearing scarfs all year around as it keeps me warm and it also keeps away a soar throught.

I litterally wear a woolen scarf every day during fall and winter – I think I have the same amount of scarves as I have shoes……. Not counting either ones anytime soon though…

And even though I have started cleaning out my closet for spring clothes, I am not getting rid of those scarves.

Denmark is always a little behind on the warmer temps so having scarves at hand is a must around here.

Do you have an accessory that you can not live without like I do?

Thank you so much for reading!

Different Set of Eyes

On todays post I would like to talk about eyeglasses!

I only recently started using prescripion glasses after feeling a chronical headache every single day after 8 hours infront of the office computer. It was not until my doctor recomended that I should go and see my eyedocter that I realized that this was even the issue.

Next up was shopping for the perfect pair of glasses! I knew instantly that I was not a lence kind of girl.

Of course I ended up buying some expensive designer frames because… Well I though my first pair should kind of special.

Later on I wanted more options even though i had sworn to myself (read my bank and my husband) that I would love these frames forever and ever!

Since i was not going to make the same mistake of buying yet another set of designer frames I decided to search for a more suitable option and came across  GlassesShop.com and then i tought why not buy your glasses online?

They have a wide range of prescription glasses and even prescription sunglasses at a resonable price and all you need are the details from your eyedoctor and then start picking frames!

I decided to go with the timesless clear eyeglasses that goes with everything and I love them!

Maybe even more than my designer ones! Please don’t tell!

Shop your new glasses here and use code GSHOT50 and get 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses (sale excluded)

The tuxedo jacket

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

The Tuxedo jacket is originally known as the dinner jacket. Over the years it has gone from only being a mans jacket to be a stable piece, that should be in every girls closet as well as mens.

So why has it taken me so long to get it? Especially since I own many blazers all ready?!

The answer to this question is: I have not found the right fit.. until now that is!

This jacket is so versatile and can be worn in various ways. Today I wanted to show you that you can wear this jacket for a night out with friends, date with your loved one, or for the office as I will be doing a lot. I have styled this classic piece with a street style t-shirt and lace baggy pants to give it and edge. Add heels, bag and red lips and you are ready to take on the night or day.

Shop this look by following the links below.
