But here goes on what I did keep...
Firstly, I stocked up on brilliant basic tops. Every woman should have a M&S's heatgen top in their wardrobe. Endlessly wearable and very cosy…I'm currently wearing mine to bed! This black cowl-neck top has a cute lace insert over the shoulders at the back. Just makes it a little more interesting…
|Heatgen Cowl Neck Rear Lace Thermal Top - £10|
I bought loads of cotton vests in different colours. These are great for under cardigans and v-neck tops. It's a good way of introducing another colour to an outfit and I'll show you how I've done that with one of these tops tomorrow. Cheap as chips - 2 for £5!

|Footglove Wide Fit Patent Pumps|
Next item is teetering on the edge of being returned. I was looking for a cardigan or wrap style layer that was a bit different shape-wise and wearable indoors and out. I spotted this two tone cocoon shaped…can't find a word to describe it….here's the M&S pic:

Finally, I have googled till it hurts and cannot find the other wrap I returned. It was blue/black/grey knitted patchwork style - like a wide scarf but could be worn like a shawl. It was expensive at £35 in the sale and not as nice on me when I got it home. I brought back a few other bits but I'm really struggling to find them online. You see, with the M&S sale, this is the time you need to be IN a store to pick up the bargains. Online has been fairly much cleared out. But I have trawled on your behalf and here is an edit of what I think is worth buying online (limited sizes but others may be available in-store)…
|Petite Pleather Trim Jacket|
classic black jacket with a nod to the leather look trend
|Lambswool Tunic with zip detail|
also available in cobalt blue - a great basic
|Love this rock chick leather (real!) front cardigan|
|The Owl Dress is reduced too! |
(only tiny sizes online)
|Limited Printed Trousers|
I almost bought these but put back at the last minute...
