It’s that time of year again when I distractedly try to get on with my work, while half-screen scrolling through whichever site has decided to slash its prices on that particular day.
I’m such a sucker for a sale that it’s embarrassing; a situation made even more embarrassing by the fact that our post guy likes to announce each of my parcels with a little fanfare of ‘ahhhh Gibson!’ – it’s an initial joke, see what he did there.
Anyway, here’s my pick of what Net-a-Porter has unleashed on its unsuspecting public today.
1) Christopher Kane Neon Wool-Blend Crepe Biker Jacket – was £1,100, now £660 – colourful take on a classic and a stand-out piece from Christopher’s colourful SS12 collection. Proper wear-forever purchase if you, like me, are a sucker for neon pink.
2) Pamela Love Antique Silver-Plated Skull Pendant – was £70, now £35 – no-one does stylish skull-stuff like Pamela, love this little fella.
3) Mathias Chaize Set of Two Engraved Gold-Plated and Silver Rings – was £85, now £59.50 – love the hammered ‘bang bang’ on these stacking rings.
4) Alexander Wang Cropped Wool-Blend Jacquard Sweater – was £320, now £192 – perfect grungy green sloppy sweater.
5) Étoile Isabel Marant Jim Printed Cotton and Silk-Blend Playsuit – was £240, now £168 – paisley-print romper that seems to have stolen everyone’s heart this summer.
6) Miu Miu Embellished Collar Printed Crepe Dress – was £1,460, now £876 – in my dream world, this would be my new party dress.
7) Zoe Karssen Orlando Florida Cotton Blend T-Shirt – was £55, now £27.50 – love Zoe Karssen t-shirts, they’re stupidly soft and a perfect level of slouchiness.
8) Giuseppe Zanotti Metallic Leather Ankle Boots – were £540, now £270 – everyone needs Bowie-esque space boots in their life.
9) Marc by Marc Jacobs Bob’s Memphis Two-Tone Leather Shoulder Bag – was £260, now £156 – big, squidgy and neon. Love the navy blue contrast, kind of makes the neon more doable day-to-day.
10) Yves Saint Lauren Textured Leather Train Pass Holder – was £90, now £63 – can you even imagine putting your Oyster card in this? I lose them at an alarming rate of knots, so frankly it’s a no for me. If you have less problems with your personal belongings, totally treat your travelcard to a ridiculous new home.
