Hi guys! Hope you’re all enjoying the beautiful weather and taking advantage of summertime fun before it’s all gone in a flash. Can you believe that it’s almost August?! Only one month left this summer so use it wisely. Travel, go to the beach, relax at home or devote a few days to good old fashioned retail therapy 😉 The August sample sale calendar includes some major events like Fivestory‘s epic clearance sale that will offer savings of up to 90% off major high-end designer brands. 260 Sample Sale will also play host to Theory and Superdry. Don’t forget about their off-site sales in So-Ho. During the first two weeks of August you can shop the likes of Vivienne Tam, Cosabella, Sarah Flint, and part 2 of Prive’s summer clearance. Century 21 Stores‘ clearance is currently up to 90% off retail and I recommend checking in towards the end of the month for their lowest deals. More events will be announced in the coming weeks so please stay tuned to my social media channels for all the updated info.
