Who Can Resist a Sale?

I kept my promise, I didn’t do any shopping on Boxing Day.

But who can resist a sale? Especially when it’s 75% off and you have a chance to shop on Christmas Eve without fighting the crowds?

Not me!

After all, I had all my Christmas shopping done so I didn’t see anything wrong with checking out the pre-sale by and spending a little on myself. Not only were they tempting me with great prices but there were so many things with sparkle and sequins I just couldn’t pass it up, and the shipping was free.

I am starting to think I am a magpie and simply attracted to anything shinny.

Sequined Bomber Jacket – It’s on it’s way to me now! I’m already certain I will be wearing it to one of upcoming L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival nights. When I say upcoming, they aren’t until March, so I may have to wear it before then too. By March here in the southern hemisphere the weather will be starting to cool and the oxblood trend that has been so big in the north for winter will be starting to be seen here, so I’ll be right on trend!

You’ll have to wait to see the rest of the items I purchased but if you have a few $$ left over or if someone gifted you cash, check out the sale, it’s still 50% off!

So as for who can resist a sale? Obviously not me!
