I am not one to promote every other stock and/or sample sale. Some are just not worth sharing and others are best to be kept to myself. But this one I have to throw right at you. On May 6th, Acne Archive – I repeat, Acne Archive – will open its online doors (SUBSCRIBE TODAY to be the first one to shop!) filled with a handpicked selection of Acne Studios classics and exclusives from previous seasons at up to 75% off. I have been to their store in both Stockholm and Copenhagen (there’s also one in Oslo) before and it’s totally and utterly worth it.ACNE ARCHIVE
Oh yes, heaven is a place on earth. Kiki Niesten, a Maastricht based retailer with some serious fashion cred is now organizing a serious stocksale! If you happen to be in Amsterdam this Thursday (the 23rd), mark your calendar! Kiki Niesten opens her stocksale pop-up store at Herenstraat 32 in Amsterdam with labels such as Céline, Balenciaga, Dries van Noten, Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Alaïa, etc. discounted at 70% or more(!). It’ll stay open as long as there’s stock, but it’s obviously smarter/better to be there on the first day.SERIOUS STOCKSALE
…in with the new. Let me introduce you to my first official 5 Piece Wardrobe buy of the year. Satin metallic brocade Mary Jane pumps by Miu Miu. They’re a little bit completely different from what I usually buy, but I guess that’s the whole point of growing a great shoe collection. Just like my glitter flats, they are special shoes and I need more special shoes as the rest of my ensemble is usually a simple uniform consisting of grays and blacks. Anyway, this purchase wouldn’t be a real me buy if I didn’t have an extra argument (or two) on why I had to have them (I have this urge to always defend my purchases), so here goes. I am selling my Alexander Wang leopard pumps. If you’re interested, they’re still up for grabs here. Now who would get rid of an old pair of shoes without getting a good replacement first? Not me! Also, life is short, buy the shoes. One month down, five to go (with 4 more pieces left). Doable.OUT WITH THE OLD
Last weekend I braved the insane sale rush at Zara (not online, I went into the actual store) and came home with this boatneck ribbed knit. It looks like nothing on the hanger, but it’s really chic on. (Here’s a really vague detail shot on Instagram.) Have you done any sale shopping yet?SALE FIND
Sometimes I seriously wonder, what am I doing to myself with this 5 Piece French Wardrobe thing. Why not let go a little? Well, because there’s more important things in the world than clothes. And shoes. And more clothes. With the bi-annual sale popping up everywhere, I always have to mentally prepare myself to prevent a huge pile of bad bargains by the end of it. Shoes that I am sure I am never going to wear… Crazy colorful stuff (because it’s almost for free!!)… Another black top to add to the already ginourmous black top family in my wardrobe…HOW TO SURVIVE SALE (AND ANY OUTLET)?
