After having your mailboxes “attacked” by offers this week there can’t be a soul who’s missed out on the global discounted shopping phenomena this cyber weekend, officially kicked off yesterday, lasting until coming Monday midnight.

Speaking for myself it can almost have the opposite effect of wanting to shop at all being being met by flashing offers and promo codes in every direction, but over the years I’ve learned my do’s and don’ts when it comes to sales shopping. Keep focus on getting things on discounts that you’ve been eyeing for a while, refilling your already favourite beauty products, new luxurious bedsheets, look out for furniture and electrical deals, and don’t fall into the trap of stocking up with things you didn’t know you wanted just because the deal sounds too good!

See some of my personal top picks on discount this weekend above and I’ve listed some interesting online shopping sites below, and oh, look out for those shopping codes, not always as easy to find as the flashing discount number. Happy Cyber Weekend everyone!!

Sneaker’in

Collage created using TurboCollage software from www.TurboCollage.com

Being a self proclaimed sneaker’in I’ve stepped into many pairs over the years, and I’ve been a dedicated fan to Common Projects’s kicks for a long time. Despite trends leaning towards platform sneaker soles I personally prefer the neater models that perhaps more resembles classic plimsolls rather than the bulkier styles. And there’s a new hot neat kick in town, iconic stripes by Gucci, I just couldn’t resist!

Leather sneakers by Gucci (£365), low-tops by Common Projects (£250).

It’s mid November and so far we’re reliving another mild London fall, bare pins during winter months have become the new normal and I’m not to complain. Transitional dressing will always be a favourite, and allows easy fun layering instead of total wrapping. As part of my conscious choice of not wearing jeans all the time I actively remind myself to wear dresses and skirts as often as I can, we all know chilly winds can put an end to that any day soon.

Soft knitted dresses aside, the Irish designer, who once stated he hated to design dresses and evening wear, J.W. Anderson, has become my go-to for interesting, allrounder-dresses that works equally well daytime as evening, with trainers, flats or heels, even layered over shirts, knits or trousers. Probably it’s exactly his vision and ideology the reason why I’ve personally felt drawn to his dress creations. Farfetch always has a great selection by the designer and they tend to sell quickly (see here), but Resort 2016 drops are just around the corner, so stay tuned!

Dungarees…

Being a lover of overalls and one-pieces, I love dungarees, come and go trends, they always feel current. I rediscovered my love for them during my pregnancy a few years ago (cliche!), but since my baby bump has gone my collection has grown rapidly in various styles.
This season my absolute favourite pair are these by Citizens of Humanity, with a perfect fit and wash, flattering wide legs, and not flared to the extreme(!). I’ve been living in mine this fall and have no plans of moving out very soon either. Dungarees and overalls are for all ages if you ever imagined any limits, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, tata!!

Dungarees by Citizens of Humanity (also herehere and here), wool knit by Stella McCartney (also here), leather biker by Balenciaga (also here), boots by Chloe, suede bag by Jimmy Choo (different versions here), silver earring by Annelise Michelson, iPhone case by Charlotte Olympia, diamond rings by Monica Vinader and DeBeers.
