What’s the best thing to do when you’ve just been paid? Go to a sample sale! And a Reiss one at that! That’s exactly what I did last month, and I bagged myself these AMAZING Reiss trousers for less than a third of the normal retail price. One thing I will say though, it does take some patience and commitment at those things, people everywhere, clothes everywhere…but if you stick it out you can honestly find some absolute gems for such crazy prices. I picked up a couple of other bits while I was there too, which I’m sure you’ll see pop up on the blog soon!

But lets just appreciate these trousers for a second! They may be slightly long for me, because I’m such a shorty (nothing a classic turn-up can’t fix), but they just fit so good. I think they’re really feminine, classy and chic, and me being me, I paired them with a simple, black, off the shoulder top. Keeping this outfit very subtle but stylish, with gold accessories and red lips. Oh, and throwing in the faux fur scarf to make myself feel like some sort of Russian princess.

I wore this outfit to dinner the other week, and yep, it’s definitely one of my favourites right now! Have you managed to pick up some great buys at any recent sample sales? I’d love to know what you found! x
