Now is the time of year that those promotional magazines drop on our doormats. I am getting quite a collection But, I think they are quite a useful tool - they certainly are for me as I can shop for ideas whilst on the sofa - shopping can be tricky enough, but they give inspiration if nothing else.
But, not only that, many of them include clothing and accessories not only as gifts but for me!
Use them as tools to give you ideas of how to wear clothes - yes, I know the majority of the models are tall and slim, but nevertheless, there are still ideas to be had. I will scour these magazines for ideas for clients - I will then head over to their website to get further details and photos.
You also know that many of these clothes will be in the sales at some point- don’t always bank on them being reduced though - the most popular lines are often held at full price.
There are the traditional sales times - usually mid winter and mid/late summer. But also look out for the mid season sales too.

So, don't just bin these magazines - have a browse through and get some inspiration!
