Right after Christmas and early January is when sales and prices are literally the best you'll see all year! Right now is such a great time to use any surplus clothing budget you've been saving up, and that's exactly what I did! I ordered all the items below, as well as the navy dress I'm wearing. Everything has not arrived yet, so fingers crossed most or all works out. I'm certainly over the moon with the navy dress. I added the ribbon brooch and the belt, and the resulting look is something I would wear for both work and casual occasions. Most of the other items I've had in online shopping carts for months, and prices are so good right now - I couldn't resist at least giving them a try! Have you been shopping any great sales?
