I’m currently going through my wardrobe and brutally getting rid of things I don’t wear anymore. This seems like a super long journey because I never can seem to let go of certain items despite never wearing them or only wearing them for one event I attend to in a year. My obsession with activewear (*cough* Gymshark) hasn’t helped in the past year… BUT I am improving.
I did a little experiment in January, where I only wore one pair of jeans and five different tops – all black for two weeks. As for gym clothes, I wore two different leggings and 6 different sports bras (because I’m a hot sweaty mess after a workout) I thought I’d get bored quickly but realised that I could survive with the handful of clothes that I had.
With this motivation, I started to declutter again.
I started piling up clothes that no longer fit because I lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately, one of those included my only black jeans. ☹️ I decided to replace them with some new ones! Around the same time, Love The Sales got in touch with me and asked if we could work on something together. Talk about destiny! 😉
This post is will be a review of the website, service and my experience. I did get free items from them in exchange for this honest review. 😁
What is Love The Sales? 🛍
When I first started browsing Love The Sales, I was quickly impressed by the idea of the website.
Have you ever had multiple tabs on of different online stores comparing loads prices and styles? Love The Sales makes that easier, it’s where you can shop every sale in one place. It’s a smarter, more efficient (in time) shopping experience.
Some of the brands they work with include TOPSHOP, River Island, Nike, ASOS, Forever 21 and Michael Kors.
My experience 🌟
My hunt for new staple items to get replace old ones was so much easier! I don’t do a lot of online shopping nowadays (can we assume I’m excluding Gymshark from this conversations) because I find it annoying comparing loads of different sites for deals.
I didn’t get this with Love The Sales, it fulfilled my expectations of making shopping quicker and easier.
I also liked:
- How it was so easy to navigate – switching between brands I trust
- Being redirected to retailer’s item directly
- The “Preview Sales Mode” feature – this lets you browse full price items before they go on sale, save them by hitting the shortlist button 💙 and once they do go on sale, you get an alert!
- Being able to filter by biggest savings %
- The range of retailers they work with – it’s not just clothes, but also electronics, home and outdoor.
For those that are wondering, I got some black jeans and a black dress for everyday wear and an event I’m going to later in the month.
My current outfit palette is neutral colours and then bright as hell stick-out-like-a-sore-thumb activewear. 🤣 I’m attempting to create a more minimalist and essentials wardrobe rather than having loads of styles to choose from every morning leading to headaches 😆
I’m attempting to go for neutral colours, shirt and jeans and gym clothes. Ideally, the sort of thing I was wearing a lot of in September last year:
Overall impression 👍🏻
I’m impressed by the idea and happy to see that they are out there to give shoppers a better experience. If I ever need to do any more shopping in the future, I definitely will be returning to Love The Sales to make my shopping experience less frustrating.
I also had an awesome opportunity to work with the Co-Founder of LoveTheSales, Stuart McClure, on a blog post about the key skills needed for starting up your own business. If you’re interested, you can read the post here.
