There’s nothing more satisfying than purchasing an investment piece from your favourite store during the sales. So when Gunwharf Quays invited me to their Summer Sale I was beyond excited. Gunwarf Quays is the leading premium retail outlet which offers current trends at a minimum of 30% discount all year, and up to 70% off during the Summer Sale – so that satisfying feeling can happen every time you shop. With many glamorous and exciting fashion brands available, I accepted the invitation, and prepared myself for a stylist challenge to shop the perfect summer occasion outfit with a budget of £100.
Gunwharf Quays is located in the heart of Portsmouth and is ideal for a day out or a weekend away with friends, family or a loved one. Not only is it excellent for the great selection of high-end high street and low-end luxury brands, but there’s also a wide range of stylish bars and restaurants with stunning views onto the harbour.
Gunwharf Quays kindly presented me a Gift Card worth £100 to shop at their famous brands which include; L.K. Bennett, Ted Baker, Karen Millen, French Connection, Ted Baker, Kurt Geiger, Osprey London, Links of London and Fiorelli. Trailing the sales has many rewards but it’s always good to make a shopping list of everything you wish to purchase and set yourself a budget. There is no point buying something which has been heavily reduced if you don’t really need it. Don’t be swayed, if you will never use it or wear it, what’s the point? And with that in mind, I wanted to find a dress suitable for weddings which is transitional and has a chic timeless appeal. Here’s what I purchased using my Gunwharf Quays Gift Card.
This French Connection dress ticked everything on the list and what’s best is the discount! I bought the geometric daisy embellished dress with an incredible reduction of £150, going from £195 to £45 – giving me an allowance for accessories too. Complimenting the look I also purchased heels from Kurt Geiger (£130 reduced to £39) and a Ted Baker bracelet (£29 reduced to £11).
