Now I know hate is a strong word but when it comes to sales in store its appropriate in my case :-)
I know you might be surprised, but I despise traipsing through the shops, elbowing your way to get to displays. Not to mention those manic frenzy shoppers, who have that mad glazed look in their eye when they're on a mission to bag a bargain! Do you ever find that people can be so rude during sale time? God bless the sales assistants, they have some patience!
Now I do like a bargain but I get more pleasure when I stumble across it ...I find the best way to tackle the sales in January is online or facebook for local boutiques!
I also think one needs to be clever about what they purchase and think about it before you part with your cash, don't buy it just because its on sale.
My advise girls, is purchase something that you can either wear for an upcoming event i.e. Wedding or Summer wedding, summer event, every day work clothing or an item that's a key wardrobe piece i.e. white shirt, jumper, black trousers, coat, jeans etc.
So here's some pieces I found that might come in handy and are on sale :-)
