9 product recommendations for intelligent shopping (January 2020)
Updated: Oct 22, 2021
Can you believe that we are almost at the end of the first month of 2020? Although I am very excited for the coming month (if you follow me on Instagram, you know exactly why), I have decided to enjoy the last days of January by doing one of my favorite things: shopping. And yes, this is probably the best time to go shopping because we are in the final sales of January, which means that it is not possible to find better deals. For this reason, I have prepared a list of fashion products that may interest you, or that may inspire you to create your own wish list. However, before sharing my product picks, I suggest you check out my Survival Guide for Sales, where I share 6 basic recommendations to make smart purchases.
I am absolutely in love with this bikini from Charmo, available in black, yellow, pink, green, and red. Ever since I got mine in black, I have been wishing to have it in more colors, not only because it is beautiful but because it is very comfortable. In addition, I consider this bikini to be very flattering for many body shapes, due to its high-waisted lower piece. I know we are in the middle of Winter, but believe me, now it is the perfect time to start building your Summer wardrobe.
2 // “Hermosa” Watch
I fully understand why this watch is called "Hermosa", which is the Spanish word for beautiful. If you register now with your email to the MVMT website, you can get this or any other watch, for men or women, with a 10% discount. In addition, since Valentine's Day is near, MVMT offers a free strap + a gift box on all your watch orders. You cannot miss the opportunity, this may be the ideal gift for a special person in your life (or for yourself, why not?). To find your closest store, click here.
I was very excited when I saw this stuffed jacket in Mango's final sales because I had been looking for one like that for a long time now, I just couldn’t find the right one for me. However, this one is perfect in every way, I love its length, color, texture and, of course, its price. I can't believe it has a 50% off. I definitely recommend you visit the Mango Website of your country to discover all its incredible pieces on sales.
Final sales are the best opportunity to splurge a little and buy some high-end products that you've been craving for a long time. This is the case with this beautiful leopard print bag by Michael Kors. I not only love its print and size but also its versatility and the fact that you can use it with many different outfits. This beauty currently has a 60% discount, so if you like it, I recommend you get yours now because they are flying.
5 // Little Black Dress
This Little black dress is from Zara and has now 60% off. What I like most about it is, of course, its puffy sleeves, which immediately brings an ultra-feminine and sophisticated look to your outfit. In addition, due to its characteristics, you can style this LBD in several ways, for example, a) with minimal accessories and black strappy heels, b) with flats and clutch in a contrasting print or color, c) with gold or silver accessories d) with a nice belt, etc. I’m really convinced that this type of purchase is worth it because this is not an item that you will use only 1 or 2 times and then you will leave at the bottom of your closet. Remember: LBD is a must in every woman’s wardrobe.
6 // Silver Hair Clips
Final sales are also a good opportunity to buy accessories, such as these beautiful and elegant Bershka hairpins that cost only 2.99 EUR. Remember that using key accessories can transform a simple and flat outfit into a more elegant and elaborate one, so I recommend you take advantage of the sales to buy all the accessories you can.
This pair of jeans are from H&M, and it's another basic you need in your wardrobe. H&M has different categories of jeans, my personal favorites are those labeled as premium quality (like this one), they are usually the most expensive, but the quality of the fabric and the way they fit your body is simply amazing. Currently, some premium quality models have a 50% discount, so if you need a good pair of jeans do not miss this offer. Check your country's H&M website to discover more models on sale.
This boots from Stradivarius have 33% off and are super versatile and easy to combine, you can wear them with your favorite jeans or with a cute skirt and tights. In addition, their thick heels make them comfortable to wear during the day without losing their fashionable appearance. However, if you live in a place with warm weather, you can buy instead of these boots, black sandals with thick heels. I am sure that you will take benefit from either of the two options.
Sales are the perfect opportunity to buy lingerie at a great price. We need underwear anyway, right? So what better than buying it when they have discounts. I specially selected these Victoria's Secret panties because they have a super discount and are available in 3 colors: pink, black and red. You cannot miss their final deals.
As you can see, all my product recommendations are based on the advice I shared earlier this month, and most of them are timeless pieces that you should have in your closet. Based on this idea, I suggest you make your wish list and enjoy your shopping. Do not forget that you do not have to buy anything if you do not need it since it is not about encouraging consumerism, but about making the most of your money by acquiring functional and versatile pieces.
