Golden Rules for shopping the Sales

It’s the season for sales!

It’s that time of year again, when all the high street and online shops try to seduce you into spending any money you have left post-Christmas on their brilliant bargains and cheap as chips chic. We love a bargain as much as the next well dressed fashionista, but we also know that the January sales can sometimes send even the savviest shopper temporarily insane! If you love a rummage on a sale rail, then read on for our golden rules of how to shop the sales:

Tip 1: Is it a sales bargain?

It’s only a bargain if you’ll actually wear it. If your style is casually chic with a muted palette, then that electric blue sequined frock is definitely not a bargain, however cheap it is! Don’t let yourself be seduced by ridiculously low price tags – more often than not, they’re so low for a reason! (And remember, sale items are often non-returnable!)

Tip 2: Plan your sale shopping

Know what you’re looking for.  Before you dive into the sales, have a good look through your wardrobe and identify any gaps.  Are you in need of a great new pair of jeans? Is the majority of your underwear collection looking past its best? Making a list of what you actually need will help keep you focused and make you less likely to be sidetracked by ‘too good to be true’ price drops.

Tip 3: Beware the impulse buy in sales

Try things on or take them back.  We know, it’s busy, it’s a hassle and there’s probably a queue, but wherever possible, do make the effort to try things on before you buy.  If you really can’t face the changing room queue, and you really love what you’ve picked up, then snap it up and try on as soon as you get home.  If it’s not a keeper – take it back! Most women have a shocking number of impulse sale buys hanging in their wardrobe, tags still attached – don’t fall into the trap!

Plus Size Fashion Tips – Making The Best Of Late Summer

Late Summer Style

Quick! Summer is nearly finished, but we are still going to get some glorious sunny days before late summer disappears into autumn. So it’s time to grab the dresses, skirts and strappy sandals and get out there while we can!

Late Summer Bargains

Sumptous Linen Summer Dress by Flax at Vida ModaThere are still plenty of late summer bargains to be had. This gorgeous summer dress is still on sale at Vida Moda, reduced to £46 from £92 and it’s perfect for a sunny day. Teamed with some flat sandals and bright nail varnish you’re good to go. It also works just as well dressed up with some nude heels and a gorgeous hat, perfect for a summer wedding or garden party perhaps.

A cream linen dress that looks comfortable as well as stylish is just right for a sunny weekend, ideally that would mean round a pool with a cocktail in hand, but this gorgeous but simple linen dress will be perfect in the garden at home or at a friends house (with a cocktail in hand..!) for a late summer barbecue!

Late Summer Mornings

As much as I love winter dressing, nothing is nicer than getting up in the morning like today and seeing a beautiful fresh and clear blue sky with the sun shinning A signal to grab a dress to throw on. One piece of clothing for the entire outfit, simple and quick so I can get out in the sunshine before it disappears!

If the sun is too hot, or, more likely, it doesn’t stick around all day, then this lightweight white stretch denim jacket is perfect. Made of cotton but with a ‘denim’ style it’s not too heavy or thick and will go with all your late summer outfits and last well into autumn too.<a href="Signature stretch denim jacket at Vida Moda

Why not take advantage of the late summer sale at Vida Moda and get your self a fashion bargain, either a statement piece or something that you can use regularly from your wardrobe.

So, go on, get out there in the sunshine, whether it’s here or on a last minute holiday and make the most of late summer before the nights draw in…

Gorgeous Long Purple Cardigan by Bitte Kai Rand at Vida Moda

Cardigan Chic – Definitely not just for grannies!

When it’s as cold as it has been these last few weeks, every girl needs a cardi – or two!
Forget any misconceptions about ‘granny style’, or looking too ‘mumsy’, a well chosen cardigan can be as flexible as your favourite little black dress, and with the right styling, is a wardrobe staple for many a fashionista!

 

This gorgeous wrap by French label Parakian is the sort of ‘must have’ piece we’re talking about.  The classic black colour way means it will go with everything and the waterfall shape makes it super flattering to all figures.

Cardigan Wrap from Anathea By Parakian Wrap at Vida Moda

For a daytime look, team it with jeans, layer on a couple of bright vest tops for colour and interest, add the wrap for warmth and extra style & rock some cosy chic.  For the office, it’s a great alternative to a more formal suit jacket, and will look great over a simple shift dress with opaque tights and boots.  Try adding an over sized brooch or corsage to the lapel as a fun, colorful twist.  When it’s time to hit the town, the beautiful sleek fabric lends itself perfectly to a more glamorous look too.  Think it’s too chilly for a strappy frock?  Add your wrap and you’ll look fabulous while still keeping warm.

 

Gorgeous Long Purple Cardigan by Bitte Kai Rand at Vida Moda If you like to stand out in the crowd, have a look at our fabulous long cardigan by Bitte Kai Rand, in a stunning, vibrant purple.   Again, this perfectly proportioned piece will go with just about everything, and happily take you from day to night.  For a day out shopping, or lunch with the girls, why not keep it simple with jeans, a plain tee, and some cute leopard print pumps for a playful pop of pattern.
In short, to keep you on trend and snug at the same time, a cardigan is what you need – the only problem, is which is your favourite?!

Plus Size Off White and Brown Tunic Top perfect for a night out on holiday

Tops to Wear on Holiday….

No doubt you are all thinking about holidays, I am too but the weather seems to have deserted us here in Cambridgeshire, though I did see reports on Twitter of sunshine in Cornwall today! So you may be thinking of heading to sunnier climates. Of course, that does bring into question the choice of what to wear! If you are like me you will look through your full wardrobe and find nothing suitable to wear on holiday this year. You explain this to your other half – there is always good value to be had in watching their eyeballs head north in disbelief!

So it is time to do some shopping. Being sensible I mentally tick off three types of top that I might need.

1: Travel.
2: Relaxing – casual.
3: Dinner out.
