The Sales Period. How to guide

Or in other words, how to make your wallet "survive" on the Sales period...

Hi, loves!
If you know the next thing about me, than it's more than obvious I'm kinda of a shopaholic. Not the one that starts shaking when she sees the new collection in stores, but the one that starts shaking when she doesn't find her shoe size while shopping in Sales. That's right, we've all been through that annoying feeling when searching your shoe size or even clothing size while browsing on "goodie goodie, discount department".  So, now being that month of the year, I would totally love to share with you some tips on how to smart shop during the Sales period.

First of all, clean your closet. Yes, you heard me right, go into your big (or small) closet and through all your shoes, new ones and old ones, the ones for summer or those boots and booties you've been wearing at winter time. I bet that, if you are like me, you have dozen of clothes that you didn't wear or that you didn't wear that much. That meaning that you filled up space with likely unnecessary items or you really care for some of them and keep them for special occasions. Either way, you have to do some browsing through your stuff and see what you really need. Like me, I need myself a pair of good old black jeans, cause the one I have are really "tired" and need "retiring". That means that another closet sale is in order for the months to come ( but we'll talk about that in another post).
Ok, so good with the closet cleaning? Great, than let's go down to number two. So, yeah, you do that list with all the necessary items you MUST buy at this Sale. Sure, there's gonna be a few extra items cause sometimes you find incredible pieces that are really worth buying! But just a few... don't go buying like crazy stuff you will probably never wear just because "they were at a good price".

And if you really want to "smart shop", you can visualize some outfits or get some inspiration online from bloggers or even fashion sites like Vogue, and take pictures with you. That way you won't be caught into the "sevrage " of tons of "great deals".

If there's one thing I hate during the sales is not finding my size, so from now on I thought to myself that in the minute I wake up and it's the Sales period, I go online and order the things I like and if I'm lucky, to find them at the size I want, cause going into that enormous crowd downtown with all those screaming babies ( yes, madams, why do you bring your new borns to drag them around  in all that dust and all those people? Do you find it that satisfying to ruin your day as well as the day of other shoppers? I mean come on...), and not finding what I'm looking for is not really my thing.. 

So yeah, we really have to learn how to smart shop and not bringing home a pile of clothes that we will probably never wear...
I think that's all for today, guys. Just trying to make a point :)


  1. These are great tips! It is definitely hard to resist all of the sales at this time of year.

  2. do you have any suggestions which shops to visit in Brussels? I'm traveling to Brussels in February and I would love to know you suggestions!

    1. From what country are you coming from? We have the usual...Zara, Mango, etc. Not so many shops in Brussels. I usually go to Antwerp for shopping :). It's a pity you're not coming during the sales period. You can find some very interesting items. I also like Neuville. It's a 100% Belgian brand of bags and wallets and so.. :)

Day at the office

Hi guys, Can you imagine that we've already arrived at the middle of the week? I know most of you work at the office and indeed, sometimes it gets lonely having to stay at home and not having a closet packed with office clothes, but I still wanted to show off a really cute office look that I personally would wear to work !  Since my Manfield shoes have a 70s vibe to them, I thought I should add a more feminine touch in the upper part of my outfit, just to sweeten the deal. Now these shoes can be worn in many ways and you can definitely play on the masculine style and wear them with a pair of pants, in a know, go full rogue in that direction. But here, I wanted to build a softer look. The shiny leather is quite an unique touch to the shoes and the thick heel makes them a comfortable pair of shoes that you can actually walk in and stay all day at the office. Add a pencil skirt, a pair of tights and an envelope clutch and you're good to go for this Fall ! 

What I wore:

Dusk till Dawn

Hello lovelies, As you can imagine, I'm totally in love with ZYAN feat Sia's new song ! In that vibe and combined with Fall weather, I'm happy to bring you the new outfit of the day, a look 100% 3Suisses. Recently they added the Next brand that I love very much and am happy to have chosen a look that will blow you away ! 

What I wore: - Next dress from 3Suisses - Next booties from 3Suisses - Next bag found at 3Suisses - Next earrings from 3Suisses - Next puffy key chain from 3Suisses
That way you have direct access to every piece of my outfit ! I would like to mention that the booties are extra comfortable and yes, I wore them yesterday to the Brussels Gallery Weekend !  Hope you like the fashion mix :)
I'll be back tomorrow with a new outfit post for sure ^^
Kisses, R.
