net-a-porter-sale.pngWe know we shouldn't, but we're looking anyway...that's our take on the current Net-a-Porter sale, where those who'd normally shy away from the aspirational products on its hallowed pages dare to take a look with a view to making a real life purchase or two.

We've finished scouring the sale and have picked out some of our favourite products that we think represent the best balance of saving, overall cost and investment potential - basically the stuff we've talked ourselves into buying, and we're ever so good at that!

Top Row

Giuseppe Zanotti red patent leather pumps was £330, now £160 here. We really think this is an opportunity not to be missed: a trans-seasonal classic style made from premium materials for a long-lasting product that you'll wear again and again. And what an amazing reduction: that's a tidy £170 saved.

DKNY printed canvas wedges in red and blue: Was £245, now £122.50 here. A lovely, slightly abstract poppy print pattern that evokes long summer days and garden parties. These seriously high shoes are real show-stoppers and you'll long for days when you can dress up in them. 

Bottom Row

Jimmy Choo 'Polar' tropical espadrille wedges: was £265, now £185 here. Another very tempting saving, this could be your chance to bag yourself some Jimmy Choos without breaking the bank. It's a print we love, and while it is very much on trend for now, it has real seasonal appeal that should see you through more summers to come.

Ralph Lauren Collection Alannah suede sandals: We're all imagining how tall we'd be in these stacked wooden platforms from Ralph Lauren. Made from real soft suede in a gorgeous apricot hue, they are a summer staple you'll want to wear all the time. £190 here reduced from £380
