Someone's been sales shopping...

By Tina A. - February 24, 2011

...and scored pretty good deals too!!!


Now, all of this wasn't purchased in one go, but rather piece by piece - you see, I'm all for planning your fashion purchases beforehand, thus keeping a balance between things that the wardrobe is lacking and pieces that fall more into the "hipster" category (I refuse to use the word "trendy" - ugh, I just did)!

So, if you'd like to take a closer look:



Clockwise from top left:
- Dark eggplant cowl neck sweater from Bershka. 3.99. Yes, you read that correctly. Huge steal! Now, this wasn't a necessity per se, but I need a break from my black and grey knits, so this slouchy piece is going to add some colour to my outfits, while still being dark enough for my liking!
- Bershka scarves. The ikat print one was 3.99 too, and would be perfect for adding a spring touch to my outfits! The animal print one is from their new collection and is more versatile than a classic leopard print in my opinion, since there isn't much brown in it.
- Zara shirt from their new spring line. I can't remember how much it was (sth around 25 I think, but I plan to live in it this spring/summer, so all's well. Love simple and clean cut basicwear like this!
- Faux leather shorts from Bershka, another 3.99 find (Greek ladies, run to Bershka, there's huge steals to be found atm in the clearance section). I've been looking for a nice, not too tight pair of faux leather shorts for quite some time now, so when I spotted those, at that price, I couldn't resist. Yes, they are (and feel) very fake, but it was probably wiser that I didn't pick a more expensive version; this is more of a going-out type piece for me and probably won't get a lot of wear anyways.
- Tan lace-up ankle boots from fullahsugah.gr. Those were half off when I got them, great deal as well (I think these particular ones are sold out by now).
- Talullah Tu necklace. This UK based jewellery e-tailer has my heart! They make gorgeous statement pieces, like the one above: a multi-chain woven design with intertwined rows of crystals. Channels rock as well as...Gossip Girl in equal parts! :)

I left the bracelet for last, to show you a better picture of it:

It was another discounted purchase from (Greek) online store myfashionfruit.com. Great quality (much better than say Accessorize) and beautiful design! It will add the perfect ethnic flair to my summer look!

As you can see, my style lately is more mixed up than usual: there's pieces here that would fit a huge variety of different styles, something that you wouldn't see me do in the past.
At the moment, I'm dreaming of 70's pieces: flared jeans, maxi skirts and sheer outerwear, even though I haven't quite spotted the pieces that would make me fall in love with them!


So, have you been sales shopping?
And what do you plan on getting for spring/summer? :)

  2. Ooo I like what you got Tina! The lace up booties are nice (OMG I've been waiting for my size shoe for this one lace up bootie I keep looking at online but my size is sold out. Fingers crossed they get new shipment!) and I love the necklace! I cannot resist crystals :) And I love white button shirts - or pretty much any nicely cut button down shirt for that matter. Great with jeans, a pencil skirt etc Ah, I wish I could pull off those faux leather shorts. If I had the legs I would wear bootie shorts and high heels out all the time.

  3. Lovely purchases my friend. Bershka had some really nice bargains. I got some nice things from there too and I even saw the faux leather shorts you bought but unfortunately not in my size. I am dreaming of 70's pieces just like you but I will not be buying any spring pieces just yet. Not until spring is actually here at least! xxx

  4. Great scores girl!
    I cannot get over how the sale is still on here... it's insane! But great! I tried so hard to not buy anything in the sales, as I only want to buy classic pieces that will add oomph to my wardrobe, but i did give in to some pieces at Accessorize and ASOS spring sale.
    I'm already armed with maxis and my wide legs flares from yonks ago! So glad fashion is cyclical!

  12. Hi Tina, I'v been meaning to tell you, your English is sooo good!! Do you study English or have you been abroad for a while or are you simply a straight A student? I really enjoy reading your posts!

  13. @Christy Exclusive: Thank you! :)


    @Karen: Ok, I'm not gonna argue with you, but I think you definitely have the legs for short shorts!!! Especially over tights and with a classic pump!!! ;)
    Hope you manage to get the laced up pair you've been so badly trying to find!!!
    Thanx for sharing babe! xxxx


    @Arietta: Hehe, great (shopping) minds think alike! I, too, will be waiting a while for those 70's pieces. You're right, it is too early and most stores haven't received their complete spring stock yet, so it would be a little premature to go shopping at this point! ;) xoxo


    @A BRIT GREEK: Sounds like you're ready for this season then!!!! I find good 70's style pieces are always hard to find, since we're talking ready-to-wear here (now vintage is different, but sadly not so popular here)...
    Funny you mentioned Accessorize, I popped in a couple of days ago, they already have bikinis, anklets and kaftans for sale! Now that's even more insane!!! Lol! xx

  14. @Anastasia: Thank you dear! Yes, asos is a good place to shop lately, plus they offer free shipping!!! Hope your order arrives quickly! :) x


    @Cel: Thank you doll! Yes, I know what you mean, τι κακο κι αυτο!! Οσο πιο λιγα λεφτα εχω, τοσο πιο πολυ θελω να ψωνιζω, craaazy!!! Lol! xxx


    @fantastic: Well, you're a lucky gal, you get to make the best of both sales seasons!!! I'd stock up like craaazy if I were you, hahaha! xxxx


    @Blushingloves Irene Greece: Well, I hadn't shopped much in the past months, so now was an amazing opportunity, there were such great deals I'd be crazy to pass on!!! But, I'm afraid that was it for now, we gotta wait for the next sales (and I need some sunglasses)!!! xxx

  15. @LottieB: Thank you sweetie! And yes, I was more than lucky this time!!! xxx


    @FashionSugarBubbles: Yep, that's my girl... of course, then there's leather jackets...leather leggings...*sigh*!!! One day....one day!!! :))) xx


    @Tamara: Thank you gorgeous!!! Have yet to wear them out, can't wait!!! xoxo

  16. @Blusherine: Thank you. Um, to answer your question, neither really, I was just fortunate enough to begin at a younger age than most (I was 7 or 8 at the time) and with a native english speaker. I was watching the educational tv programmes for kids though even before that. However, I still make a lot of mistakes (I notice that when I read my tweets after I've posted them-fail). But I guess watching YT videos and browsing online, is a good way to brush up my forgotten knowledge!!! :)


    @Tali: A bit ethnic and summery no? ;) Ah, summer....!!! xxxx
