Sales which you can actually shop

It has finally happened: I feel let down by an Internet fashion shopping site for the first time...

However, this little fashionista has got more resilience than this, and I will not let my disappointment with the Outnet bring my spirits down! Instead of moping around, I decided to wander off and see if I could find some amazing goodies elsewhere. And yes, of course I did!

Here are my finds of the day, all available in easy to click, non server-challenged, easy to check-out format! Of course none of these items are £1 but the prices are pretty good and there is no aggravation or frustration here, only happy shopping! What do you think?

First up, I head to one of my all-time safe bets: ASOS, which I hear has become one of the fashionista world's favourite websites ever. They have a year-round Outlet category which is bound to have a find or two for even the most difficult ones amongst us. If you thought they didn't have serious designer stuff think again, and check out this fabulous jumpsuit by McQ by Alexander McQueen, at £198, down from £353.70.

Also on the ASOS Outlet, there are some amazing finds for those who want to stock up on summer gear. If you're heading to the beach this summer, check out this kaftan by Antik Batik (£98 instead of £225). It also comes in Pink.

I'm also liking the idea of this embroidered dress by Manoush (reduced to £112 from £213), it has a fantastic boho vibe to it. Imagine wearing it with some gold gladiator flats at sunday lunch this summer. Gorgeous!

Dorothy Perkins has an amazing grey print dress which cost £25 (down from £35), and which would look amazing as a work look with some sky-high shoe boots. Add a fab pair of earrings to channel you inner Lipstick Jungle character.

For higher end fashion sales, try My Wardrobe which still has a few items in the winter sale, including these zip embellished leather boots from Michael by Michael Kors. At £147 down from £295, this is a great deal to get rock chic at its best. And let's face it, given how unpredictible British weather is, you will still need to wear boots a few times before summer is really with us!

And finally, if you're after a fabulous evening piece at a discount, look no further than this dress by Roberto Cavalli, £545.06 instead of £1,024.91 at My Theresa. Love the colour!!

Fantastic that you didn't let the Outnet and its poor sale experience down your fashion vibes!

These pieces are fantastic - well done!
