Designer Fashion Sale this weekend

Just because Boxing Day, Cyber Monday and Click Frenzy are behind us – for now – it doesn’t meant there aren’t bargains to be unearthed (and in a more civil, relaxed manner too). I’ve heard whispers of a good sale happening this weekend. I’m even selling some of my own
