Laura Jordan’s Ultimate Sale Shopping Guide: What & Why To Buy This Summer

By June 25, 2023No Comments

Wow! Thank you all so much for the fantastic feedback on our recent Zara Sale Shopping Picks.
The response sparked lots of enquiries about sale shopping in different stores and at different price points so I was inspired to compile an ultimate list of sale shopping picks and most importantly, shed light on the reasons behind each of my selections.

As I mentioned previously, The StyleSavvy® Method revolves around the art of smart shopping, regardless of your budget. Understanding which colours and shapes flatter you, as well as how to identify quality pieces, can significantly enhance your sale shopping experience.

For those interested in personalised support during the sale season, we offer a range of services designed to help you shop smarter. Whether online or in-person, my team and I are here to chat! You can contact us here
