Sale items for now…and next season


It is all too easy to fall into the trap of buying clothes that are really only suited to one time of the year, i.e.  Christmas and the party season.

By choosing items that can be layered for cold weather or teamed with different accessories to suit the time of year I’ll end up wearing them more and really getting my money’s worth.
