Clearance Weekend at The Dressing Room!

It’s starting to cool down and new season stock is pouring onto the rails, but there’s still time to grab some final summer sale bargains over at the Dressing Room, who are offering an extra 20% off all sale stock until midnight on 26 August! There are still plenty of lovely bits to pick up at rock bottom prices – here’s what I’d be getting if I wasn’t on this accursed ban!

Equipment Brett Python Shirt - was £192, now £75

Equipment Brett Python Shirt – was £192, now £75

With the discount, this shirt comes in at £60 – for an Equipment shirt?! Snake print was all over the catwalk too, so this is a really savvy new season buy – someone snap it up before I do!!

J Brand 1214 Aidan Slouchy Boyfriend Jean - was £269, now £99

J Brand 1214 Aidan Slouchy Boyfriend Jean – was £269, now £99

Boyfriend jeans are going nowhere fast – I’ll be updating mine for the new season with a fitted sweater and ankle boots. This J Brand Aidan style is very popular, so bag them at a discount!

Mercy Delta Zebra Wool & Silk Mix Scarf - was £150, now £55

Mercy Delta Zebra Wool & Silk Mix Scarf – was £150, now £55

How deliciously autumnal do the berry tones in this Mercy Delta scarf look right now? If you’ve never had the pleasure of stroking one of these scarfs, let me tell you they are so baby soft. This would brighten up my boring classic black coat a treat!

Day Birger et Mikkelsen  Acqua Top - was £150, now £75

Day Birger et Mikkelsen
Acqua Top – was £150, now £75

This top has got ‘Christmas night out’ written all over it! I think this beautiful silk top paired with leather leggings and a tuxedo jacket would make a sharp, contemporary alternative to a more convential ‘party dress’.

Bobi Blazer - was £75, now £32

Bobi Blazer – was £75, now £32

I’ve long extolled the virtues of a jersey blazer as a sharper alternative to a cardigan, and this ruby-red Bobi version would be great for A/W. Red has been everywhere at the press days I’ve attended, so this is a great buy – would look fab over a breton top and bootcuts, with a long chunky scarf wrapped round your neck.

H By Hudson Coachella Boot - was £150, now £60

H By Hudson Coachella Boot – was £150, now £60

I’ve liked these boots for aaaages, and at £48 with the discount these are a steal! I’d put them with vintage wash skinnies and a grey marl sweatshirt. Argh, so much tempatation!

Paige Denim Verdugo Super Skinny Jean - was £195, now £99

Paige Denim Verdugo Super Skinny Jean – was £195, now £99

A good pair of black skinnies can be hard to find, in my experience, but I love the fit of the Paige Verdugos, so I think this pair would be a great investment, especially for £80!

Just Ballerinas Glitter Platino Pumps - was £79, now £45

Just Ballerinas Glitter Platino Pumps – was £79, now £45

You know by now that I just love slipper flats, but they can be a little tricky to style for the evening. This pair have that nailed by virtue of being glittery and gold! Skinnies are the obvious choice for these, but I actually think they look really cute with opaques and a short skirt.

So, those are a few pieces I think are great, but there are so many more I could have featured so do check out the sale section, and don’t forget to use code CLEAR20 to get your extra 20% off! So, what will you be bagging in The Dressing Room’s clearance? Do let me know in the usual way!

DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored post – I just really like these guys.

C150 – Day 22 – 27

Heartfelt apologies, dear readers, for my lack of commitment. I have had a crazy couple of weeks, but I think I’ve got my shit together now. We’ll see. Anyway, you don’t want to hear about all that bobbins, you want to know what I’ve been wearing!

Day 22

20130819-123803.jpg

Outfit:

Top – DVF
Trousers – Gap
Shoes – Michael Kors

This top was a sample sale bargain and I just love it. I don’t wear it often enough really – must make more effort to give it the airing it deserves. The shoes are Michael Kors ‘Flex’ pumps and are just the comfiest ever. They pop up every season in different colours and frequently appear on the Outnet at great prices – highly recommend them!

Day 23

20130819-124134.jpg

Outfit:

Shirt – Equipment
Skirt – Gerard Darel
Shoes – Boden

You remember the saga of this shirt, don’t you? Well worth a very painful trip to acquire it with my newly operated on hand (you can expect the return of the grubby bandage soon as it needs redoing), as it makes me smile every time I catch sight of it!

Day 24

20130819-124403.jpg

Outfit:

Dress – LK Bennett
Shoes – Vince Camuto

A rare glimpse of business-appropriate Amber here – I very rarely do the ‘corporate’ thing, but I had a meeting where I needed to make an impact today, so it was required. I spent the whole day feeling like I was playing dress up, but the meeting had exactly the desired outcome, so it was worth it!

Day 25

20130819-124709.jpg

Outfit:

Scarf – Becksondergaard
T-shirt – Uniqlo
Jeans – Goldsign
Boots – Ash
Watch – Olivia Burton

The eagle eyed amongst you will notice a couple of new acquisitions here! More on those in a separate post, but I promise I haven’t broken the terms of my ban.

Day 26

20130819-124930.jpg

Outfit:

T-shirt – Gap
Jeans – Goldsign
Boots – Ash
Watch – Olivia Burton

Variations on a theme here – I’ve fallen back in love with my Ash Jalouse during the slightly cooler weather. They are so comfy and have that casual-cool thing going on. Another highly recommended footwear purchase if you’re in the market.

Day 27

20130819-125225.jpg

Outfit:

Shirt – Uniqlo
Jeans – J Brand
Boots – Boden
Watch – Olivia Burton

This was probably my favourite outfit of the week. I love a flannel shirt and this monochrome check one looks fab with my precious pink boots!

Back later with today’s outfit, and that handbag post I owe you…

Sales Haul – Part Three

Well, you probably guessed it from this post, but I got my hands on last week’s Wednesday Want. And here I am wearing it:

20130625-161645.jpg

Outfit:

Shirt – Equipment
Jeans – J Brand
Shoes – Jimmy Choo
Bag – Anya Hindmarch

I’m so glad I bagged this shirt. Sometimes after the thrill of the chase, the shine wears off an item, but in this case I’m liking it more and more! The attention to detail is fabulous – look at the way the pockets have been carefully cut so that the pattern is not disturbed…

20130625-182817.jpg
And at less than 30% of RRP? I call that a steal!

Wednesday Want

I saw this gorgeous Equipment shirt when I was out roaming around Knightsbridge on Saturday in search of some sales bargains.

20130619-112125.jpg
It is still a bit pricey at £145, but I loved the fit and the quirky design, so I will be continuing to stalk it in the hope of further reductions!

I did get another great bargain in the Harvey Nichols sale though, more on that to come in the next post…
