Net a Porter sale anyone...?

I bought a lovely hooded jackety thing for DH in the Mr Porter sale last week as a thank you for being so fab with my horrible morning sickness.

Flaw in my selfless plan was that the Net a Porter sale starts today and there are lots of lovely things to buy that I don't have money for!

<studiously ignores credit card>

How about half price Marc by Marc Jacobs Natasha bag ?

Or half price Viv Westwood shiny wallet ?

Or a Missoni scarf ?

<sobs, gnaws nails>

I opened this thread and your first link was a bag I looked at only last night.

Am having a battle of wills with credit card atm.

I have gone a bit mad with with APC this morning. Now going to burn credit card before ASOS sale starts tomorrow!

KaraToytown Mon 20-Jun-11 12:53:21

Well that battle didn't last long.blush

LaurieFairyCake Mon 20-Jun-11 12:56:37

I can't even get on the site it's so busy!

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 13:24:51

Well I cracked and bought the Natasha! grin

I am betting that DH won't like the jacket I bought him anyway so I can return it, making the Natasha practically free.

What have people bought / been tempted by?

I love NaP sales smile I got a Missoni tank top for £120 a few years ago, I always look at Missoni first but it's never below £150 - the magic price at which I can begin to justify things.

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 13:26:01

Did you get it too Kara?

KaraToytown Mon 20-Jun-11 13:40:20

I've bought it in brown. Practical. Will go with everything. Thankfully I'm too fat to fit in any of the clothes.grin

<plenty of justification going on here>

Congrats on your bargain! I got the light colour which I thought was kind of tan, but apparently is 'desert olive'. I hope it's not too sludgy hmm It does look very practical <justifies frantically>

Have just remember that interest gets paid out on a saving account on Friday.

Makes the bag free grin.

KaraToytown Mon 20-Jun-11 13:59:14

Vivian, that does sound like a lovely bargain.

I saw someone with that olivey colour bag on Saturday Macaroona, it looked nice.

DiNammic Mon 20-Jun-11 14:02:30

DiNammic Mon 20-Jun-11 14:02:44

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 14:02:56

I have been bad thats all I`m saying

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 14:55:05

Ooh tell!

brookeslay Mon 20-Jun-11 15:10:07

Apart from someone buying a bag no one has confessed.

I tell you what I didn`t get

I was deciding two things that sold out ! One was the Alice temperley leather jacket and the other a Isabel Marant jacket (non sale).

So I think I was good really could have spent more.

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 15:12:26

Oh g'wan g'wan! I need to shop vicariously.

dexter73 Mon 20-Jun-11 17:56:26

I put the Marc Jacobs bag in my basket but didn't go any further than that!

Emo76 Mon 20-Jun-11 17:57:46

I went for the mulberry watermelon clutch - I have had it and returned it at full price, it is still extorionate but I want to be SURE that I don't want

Macaroona Mon 20-Jun-11 18:01:03

Both the Marc Jacobs bags are now sold out!

Mine is on its way! grin
