Shopping: Almost Famous Sample Sale

It’s been a while since I hit a sample sale. London is full of them but they’re often ridiculously busy and at times of the day when I’m at work. This one was almost directly across the road from my office though, so a lunchtime hit was perfect.

Almost Famous can only be normally only be found in selected House of Fraser stores, but they have a flagship store on Percy Street, W1 that stocks their entire range.  

Normally priced £100+ for their selection of day and evening dresses, tops, knitwear and accessories, the sample sale had shoes from £15, tops from £10 and other similarly priced bargains.

I picked up this dress for £30.

I don’t really wear evening dresses anymore, not the sort people go out in on a Saturday night anyway, as I’m not that type of person. But I could wear this day or night depending on the accessories or shoes I put with it.

This top was only £10 (excuse the fact it’s straight out of the bag and not ironed!).

It has slightly padded shoulders which I love, and the style and mesh panelling are perfect for the sports luxe trend I’m struggling to suit.

Don’t worry if you missed out on the sample sale this time, you can also shop Almost Famous at their online store.
