Sales in Italy! Woohoo!
The sales here in Italy where I live have just started.
Being impatient, I went shopping yesterday and bought a pair of red sandals. You may or may not know that last year I decided, to just buy red shoes.
Why? Well because when I was little and my mum would buy me some shoes, if I had a choice,I always picked the red ones I’m sorry that’s just who I am, so last year I thought “oh let’s just go back to red shoes” I love them so much they’re just so cheerful and it makes shoe shopping very easy because you just look at the red ones and disregard the rest!
It doesn’t have to be a brighter red like my new sandals there is a lovely muted red if you are in a less showy mood. There is also a rich burgundy which is also red if you want boots or something bigger on your leg, it doesn’t have to be bright red, the muted burgundy shades look very, very, rich and classy and a bit different too.
I wanted an open sandal because it’s been so hot here in Italy. My new sandals are slightly raised with a flat base a flat foot bed because I didn’t want, in this hot weather, to be teetering around on high heels with my feet at a steep angle. Your feet can swell and get very uncomfortable and hot so my new sandals are perfect wit a padded sole and they are of course made in Italy.
Please watch my video and find out all about the Italian sales.
The Italian sales happen twice a year. First in January, then in July. They can’t be held at any other time and the exact date is dependant on the zone in which you live.
You can get some genuine bargains. These sales are real.
Normally in the period leading up to the sales, I look at items that I like and may want to buy and wait to see if they are reduced in the sales. You can save up to 70% on goods ranging from shoes, like I bought right up to household items such as fridges, cookers etc.
When you consider that here in Italy there are dotted up and down the country, designer outlets where you can get high end designer goods at lower prices, you can make huge savings if you stock up on these goods during the sale periods.
With the money that you save with one trip, you could come again later in the year to treat yourself again.
I am going to one of the nearby cities very soon and I will looking for bargains there. I’ll be back to share my experiences and purchases with you.
