Mint Velvet Sale Picks!

I have been avoiding the sales and have been quite good, no make that reasonably good, or more accurately not as bad as usual. One sale that I'm always really excited about is Mint Velvet, one of my favourite brands. In the sales, I would rather buy quality, investment pieces, especially if they are significantly reduced and there are some real gems at the moment from Mint Velvet.

I bought this dress, which I first saw on Donna's fabulous blog - I Won't Wear Sludge Brown here:

Mint Velvet Slate Satin Biker Dress £49 from £99


I have been stalking the Mint Velvet website for a couple of weeks, waiting for the sale, and it actually went down to half price, hurrah! I am keeping it and will hopefully wear it this weekend.

I also love this jumpsuit, featured on my blog a few months ago - it is now a really great price and perfect to take on holiday:

Mint Velvet Cara Print Jumpsuit £45 from £89


Leather jackets are always a fantastic item to buy in the sales. I bought my grey one in the Whistles sale at Christmas, but I also love this one:

Pearl Zip Leather Biker Jacket £189 from £259


And an amazing reduction on these fabulous shoe boots which you could still wear in September/October with jeans, depending on the weather:

Nude Aria Leather Shoe Boot £65 from £129


I absolutely love this leather skirt - the length, the colour, the fit - everything! I thought about it for a few seconds because I like it soooo much, and if I still worked in a glamorous office, I would have bought it, but sadly it doesn't fit into my country bumpkin life!

Pearl Leather Midi Skirt £129 from £169


This pretty tee is more wearable and could be worn day or night with boyfriend jeans and flats/heels:

Cream Teardrop Lace Tee £49 from £69


And this tee is a really useful buy for when you want to wear a 'dressy' top with jeans in the evening:

Blush Georgette Tee £45 from £59


I have liked these trousers for ages, they are lovely and floaty for the summer holidays and easy to style with black or white:

Alma Print Soft Trouser £49 from £69


And this trench which also featured on the blog a while back - I would have bought it but they don't have my size, probably for the best:

Stone Trench Coat £119 from £159


The scarves from Mint Velvet are always gorgeous, but a much better price in the sale. My favourite is this one:

Mint Velvet Ivory & Ice Blue Tassel Scarf £19 from £35


And finishing with my outfit today, boyfriend jeans from GAP, top from Mango and sandals from H&M.


So, have you been tempted by any sales bargains? As always, I'd like to hear from you!

  1. Some great picks here Abbi. I do love Mint Velvet but don't own much of it, I stalked a bell sleeved top last autumn, it's probably my favourite top ever! Wallis have a similar dress to the top one you feature, so versatile x

  5. I really love the biker dress, I saw it earlier in the season, but I have so many dresses I don't really wear so I'm trying to resist!! Still love the H&M sandals. x

    1. I hardly wear dresses either and I don't have that many. Going to make myself wear it this weekend to a party instead of my usual jeans and dressy top combo!
