Knitting the dregs together.

What else is there to write about on one of the hottest days of the Summer so far... 

Why KNITWEAR of course!  

Don't laugh.  Otherwise you'll start sweating... this is a good idea, I promise.  Yes, it's sweltering and the days of sideways rain and howling winds are hard to imagine.  But (and super apologies for being the misery guts) they're not a million miles away. 

So without dwelling on just how many weeks we've got left of this glorious weather, let's just put on our sensible pants on and see if we can bag ourselves a bargain so we have something to smile about when the weather does turn.  These are up to 80% off!

Stars-intarsia silk and cotton blend sweater was £390 now £117 from Matches

Lord cashmere blend sweater from Bella Freud was £395 now £158

Right on Sister Bella Freud Jumper was £295 now £118

Word Wool Sweater from Bella Freud was £298 now £148

Lips at Markus Lupfer. 

Sequin embroidered sweater was £325 now £163

Stripes on point.  The perfect jumper to stretch the Summer into Autumn...

Striped wool-blend sweater from DVF was £285 now £114 from Matches

Stripes again at Net a Porter.

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini was £270 now £54

Stripes again with 70% off at Net a Porter.

Victoria Victoria Beckham was £265 now £70

And way out with the ruffles... LOVE this. 

Ingrid ruffle-trimmed sweater from Preen Line was £450 now £135

Of course - what am I actually saying.. the kids break up next Friday, we go on holiday the week after - in Suffolk - so you can pretty much guarantee that we will be treated to wall to wall sleet, clouds and thunderstorms come the end of July/beginning of August.  Get those knit bargains NOW!  I'm sure we'll be wearing them sooner than we think *weeps*.

But it's currently gorgeously sunny so I'm still all about the dresses as I was last night in a new dress I picked up yesterday from Debenhams.  Had a meeting at their head office and they VERY kindly gave me the sample dress I had first worn for the photo shoot I did for Stella Magazine way back in December.  With all things A/W in their Press Showroom now (and omg there are some AMAZING things coming), they no longer had any use for the dress which was a sample from Spring Summer.  Why did I want the sample?  As it's about a foot longer than the ones that went online and instore, which is PERFECT for an Avatar like me. 

Dress - Studio by Preen from Debenhams (press sample gift ss18)
Shoes - Reiss (5yrs old)
Bag - I Know The Queen (gift 2yrs ago)

So it's rock and roll Saturday night for us.  Movie and a takeaway - all plans cancelled as last night was a big one and we have a GREAT day ahead of us watching the football with our French friends.  PARTAAAAAAAAAAY!

  1. I so agree with you, especially when there is such super bargains to be had. Bought my 1st Bella Freud jumper in the sale, thinking ahead to the rotten weather, and I bloomin love it.
