I’m off to the Sales

London may be one of the most expensive cities in the world but all of that changes in late December and January when all the stores hold their end of season sales. As a shoe-aholic, I look forward to this time of year to stock up on the latest shoes and boots at a fraction of their usual cost. Last week I managed to pick up a very cool pair of brown suede and sheepskin Miu Miu 5″ high clogs from Selfridges, before my son dragged me out of the shoe department, kicking and screaming, ‘You have enough shoes! I want to go home.’ He’s right. I have plenty of shoes. Some pairs are still in boxes, unworn. So far I’ve picked up 4 new pairs in the past 2 weeks – a pair of incredibly sexy, black patent high heels with an ankle strap from Kurt Geiger (definitely the coolest and best value shoe shop in London at the moment), another pair of black patent wingtips from Larizia (the best independent shoe shop located in St. John’s Wood and Temple Fortune) and a pair of platform, high heeled black boots with a red lining from Roco in Temple Fortune. Now all I need is a place to wear them all!


Tomorrow I’ll be taking a half day off work to continue my tour of Selfridges, arguably the best dept store in the world. I’m hoping to pick up a Mulberry handbag for half price and some new sheets to replace the ones on my bed that have seen better days. Super kingsize sheets are never cheap, but at least at 50% off they seem within my budget.

Any other bargain hunters should register for the daily Urban Junkies newsletter. They regularly announce sample sales and have a list that they keep updated with end of season sales. It’s also a great newsletter to find out about clubs, concerts and generally all the great things happening in London.

Happy shopping!
