If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@inspadesblog) you know I’ve been sharing my favorite looks from 2016. One of the things you may not know, is that that majority of my wardrobe is purchased within the last few weeks of the year (this amazing technicolor coat included!). The end of December and early January is truly the best time to invest in statement pieces and high quality designer items. I like to keep a running list throughout the season of pieces I’m swooning over so when the time hits, I can take advantage of these amazing deals without getting distracted by the rest of the sale noise. Raise your hand if you’ve ever bought something just because it was “on sale”.
Unlike Anniversary sales or Friends & Family where the focus tends to be on lower priced basics (and buying up as much as you can), year end sales are more about finding treasures (designer items that typically never go on sale). Now is the best time to invest in a winter coat, chic booties or a statement handbag. I’ve linked 40 items that are not only conversation starters, but high quality pieces that will last.
