Let your eyes not deceive you, they are indeed two very pretty Net-A-Porter gift bags. From me, to me of course. Did I hit up the Net-A-Porter sale? You bloody-betcha! Cast your minds back to Fashion's Night Out in London last year, Sarah and I literally happened to fall upon the Net-A-Porter 'wall' on Mount Street. Passing by fashionistas were supplied with iPads and iPhones to hold up to their online shop which was projected on to said wall (very technical) where you could win various items. After twenty minutes of thrusting an iPad at a beautiful pink Proenza Shouler satchel with no luck, the lovely staff clearly felt very sorry for Sarah and I, then proceeded to give us a gift card (!?!). Manners, I tell you all get you everywhere, including a £50 Net-A-Porter voucher. Since last September, that gift card has been burning a serious hole in my pocket. Enter the Net-A-Porter SS12 sale...
Jane on a Leash - Marc by Marc Jacobs
I have been eyeing this cute compact little bag for months, being an absolute stickler for navy I certainly fell head over heels all over again. As I saw it had hit the sale I wacked it straight in my basket. I'm not really one for clutch bags, mainly as I think I would probably just leave them places by accident (just me?) so strategically thinking with a strap its stuck to me somehow. I think its fairly classic without being too loud, until you catch a glimpse at the lining that is..
So Marc Jacobs!
Enabled Bracelet - Alexander McQueen
Whilst on a designer -induced-high, I threw shit to the wind and naughtily added the above McQueen bangle to my order as well. As you may know by now, when it comes to jewellery I am seriously fussy and pretty darn set on dainty bits and pieces. But the bright fuchsia, purple and gold really struck a chord. It even had bloody skulls on it - do I seriously look like a skull person? - the answer is no. Hey, if Kate can wear McQueen so can I right? Coupled with a simple outfit (and a tan, because everything admittedly I feature looks great with a tan) I cannot WAIT to wear this in the (real) Summer!
Did you eye up anything in the Net-A-Porter sale? Don't think I would have pushed the boat out if it hadn't been for the voucher. But ahem, that didn't stop me from serious swooning a shoulder bag in the Mulberry sale the other day. Did anyone catch that? Amazing reductions right? Also heads up to the Topshop sale starting early today, don't bother its pants. Mainly because I get paid next week, the bastards.
fyi: the prices haven't been included in this post, simply because my Grandmother (hi!) is a devoted reader and I really don't want to give her a heart attack.
