Sale Picks 2

It's almost Christmas but already LOADS of shops have got sales on! This is just a few things that I am trying desperately not to buy so that I have enough money left for all the Christmas presents I haven't actually bought yet. Last minute shopping anyone?

1. This Louche Raina Shirt Dress from Joy (they're having a secret sale!) is a retro dream come true - I could totally wear this to work, right? Now only £30 instead of £49.

2. Mmmm cake maths. I love this 360 Degrees of Cake Print which is now £15 at Beach - you can get it framed for an extra tenner! Win.

3. Nothing works better to cheer me up than buying unneccessary stationery. Especially tape. Green Checked Masking Tape from Papermash - was £13.50, now only £3.

4. Another dress (I see a recurring theme here...), this time from the super cute Nishe range at ASOS. This Heart Embroidered Tea Dress is the cutest, although I also love this one and this one. Only £27 down from £45!

5. Anthropologie, home of all things beautiful and extortionately expensive, have put this rather pretty Settled Confetti Glass in their sale; it's now a more affordable £3.95 (down from £8).

6. Online boutique Ginger Pickle are having a flash sale pre-Christmas - I want these Enamel Triangle Brooches! Was £6, now £3.75.

7. I love this Georgia Tan Satchel from Ollie and Nic, more so now that its £40 instead of £55.
