I definitely am a gal who lives on a restrictive budget. Teacher’s incomes are notoriously laughable, but I am always determined to be as stylish and polished as possible. (Et voila, le blog!)
Still, we all have our lusts and I am included in that. I have a couple of brands that I watch like a hawk for the possibility of sales. Over spring break, my vigilance paid off!
Hayden Harnett has quality leather goods, and not a lot of great sales on their fantastic handbags. Seems to me that most of the time anything good got snatched up before I could decide to pull the trigger. But I happened to click on a link from HH’s Twitter account (@HaydenHarnett) and got into their Easter Sale early enough to see the Cargo Cult Satchel on sale in black, down from $285 to $71! Luscious lamb leather, in my hands, RIGHT NOW. And the straps are the perfect length, and it has amazing pockets. It’s delicious, and worth waiting for!
That would be my top tip for snagging great items in a sale: follow (and check) their Twitter! If they’re good with Twitter, that is. If so, you’ll be on the inside track to get those coveted lust list items!
What brands will you/do you wait forever for a great sale?
