How To Survive The Insanity Of Summer Sales

You know the drill: big neon letters screaming at you from every window display, queues at the fitting rooms to make you want to go trichotillomanic, and random bitches snatching away that top you've been lusting after since like the day before you were born. It's summer sales time! Running from store to store sweat-soaked and frustrated may be your description of a cruise trip to hell, but if you hang in there you just might stumble across that rare sales gem: something you really want, for no money at all. 
To survive all this mayhem, you need to dress appropriately and comfortably and that's where I come in.
Cue cheesy gratuitous photo of a man clutching a clothing item he seems so excited to try on!
This loose and comfy tee is perfect for in the fitting room. No hassle with buttons, just pull it over your head and start trying things on! The bicycle necklace and friendship bracelets (those are in again so tell your little siblings to get working) give a simple outfit some more vivacity.
These carmine trousers have an elastic waistband so you've got maximum comfort and fitting ease. With a colour so vibrant, it's good to keep the design as unfussy as possible. I love these!
Pair all this with some comfortable trainers:

A matching rucksack so you have your hands free to browse through the racks and to put your shopping bags into:
And to round things off, some awesome sunglasses because they're awesome:
Remember to bring a bottle of water because you wouldn't be the first shopper to pass out on a pile of Zara knits due to extreme in-store heat induced by crazy crowdiness.
All you need now is a peppy salacious beat to walk around to:
Et voilĂ ! You're ready to hit the sales. Remember: don't buy something because it happens to be cheap, buy it because you're planning to wear it.
Good luck!
