Ok, so you know when you hear about the Next sale starting at 5am and you think to yourself "Who would be crazy enough to go to that?" Well I was that crazy. However, I do have a valid excuse, as most of you know I am starting a new job in November. My new job requires me to dress very formal.
I have never had a job that I have had to dress formally for so I have literally one suit in my wardrobe.
I decided it would be in my best interest to venture into the madness of the Next sale at 5am. I am happy to report it was completely worth my while. As you will see below, I picked up loads of items all for less than half price.
Because it was the sale I just picked up everything that was in my size regardless if I really liked it. My intention was to go through it all before I went to pay, but as it was so busy I was unable to do this and ended up buying everything, but I was aware I could return anything that I didn't like. This totally worked to my advantage as I ended up trying on items that I normally would not have looked at twice. These ended up being some of my favourite things I purchased. This was the case with the first two dresses pictured. The most expensive item I purchased is the navy lace dress with pattern on it. It was originally €103 and reduced to €45. Everything else was between €15 and €25. I spent approximately €300 which does seem like a lot but had I bought everything full price it would have cost €800+
Some of these items are still available on Next's online store unfortunately I can't link the items individually as they are in the sale section. Of course many of these items will still be available in stores as I only purchased them yesterday.
What dress or top do you think I should wear on my first day of work? If you have any OOTD posts on work outfits please leave your links below. I am constantly looking for inspiration.
