Shopping: What She Bought in the Sales

I hadn’t intended shopping in the sales at all.

But yesterday, while visiting my sister in Ballyboughal, we popped into nearby Malahide,”just for a potter” amongst the lovely shops and eateries dotted across the village.

I’m normally not a “boutique shopper” but visits to three boutiques ensued and I was excited to find the Almost Famous label stocked in Divine – where everything was half price in the sales! They also stock another label I love – Electronic Sheep – and their woolen cape is now only €100.

The first thing I saw when I entered the shop was this charcoal grey dress coat, reduced from €255 to €130.  It’s got the most gorgeous chiffon pleating detail on the shoulders and it fits me perfectly – so needless to say I had to buy it!

Kate Walsh, the UK Apprentice star turned TV presenter, wore the black version of coat to the London Twilight premiere in November.

I love this label and previously wore it to the summer in Dublin launch in 2010.

Did you found any good bargains in the sales?

    Like it a lot. Hate sales in general but boutique sales can be good as the racks of crap aren’t there like in the bigger stores and you genuinely feel you’re getting a bargain.

    That is a nice bargain! I should pop into that shop for sure.
