Sales, we love them, well most of us… For some, the mere thought leaves them in a cold sweat! But they need not be with this, Rosella’s annual guide to navigating sales and using them to your benefit. Follow these steps for optimum results:
1: Get your game plan on:
What is your wardrobe missing? Make a list of items with detail like cut and what you could wear the piece with, like a blazer that you could pair with jeans for casual look or with a skirt and heels for work.
2: Dress for the occasion:
Armed with your list, decipher what would be best for you to wear – boots will make regular trips to the changing rooms harder work than they need be. Rather opt for pumps instead. Wear nude underwear and a cross-body bag, as it leaves your hands free for rummaging.
To get the most out of the sale experience it’s best to avoid distractions and go it alone sans children and friends. Unless your friends are as focussed as you are and you agree to a game plan and stick to it.
4: If the shoe doesn’t fit:
Collect all your items and head to the changing rooms to ensure that they fit correctly. Remember, it’s not a bargain if it doesn’t fit!
5: When in doubt:
Ask one of the friendly Rosella Assistants for their advice. An honest opinion goes a long way.
6: Time after time:
Buy versatile pieces – a great pair of jeans, a collared shirt, an LBD – these are wardrobe investments that you are able to wear over and over again.
These tips should leave you prepared, confident and ready for some sale action. By the time sale season comes to an end, you’ll have some stunning items to show for your efforts.
