Shop the 2016 Christmas sales – what bargains can be had where?
'Twas the night before Christmas, and Rosemary was doing what she does best – scouring the internet for the best bargains in the 2016 Christmas sales. What can I say? I'm a computer addict. Actually, myself and my Dad are sitting on the couch together, in front of a roaring fire, having watched Legally Blonde (he loved it), semi-engrossed in Dorian Gray on Syfy (which, FYI, is not suitable father-daughter bonding fodder and is, in fact, chock full of awkward sex scenes). I am, of course, taking refuge in my phone – and just realised that the "50% off sale!" emails have started to roll in.
The last sales blog post I did was incredibly well received, so I thought I'd do another, this time around highlighting just a handful of shops I like, whose 2016 Christmas sales have already begun.

The 2016 Christmas sales A to Z
Asos.com: The online superstore has kicked off proceedings with up to 50% off a whole host of items. Just a few of my faves are...
Farfetch: What I love about the sale on Farfetch.com is that you can shop by discount, so you can select only the items with 50% or more off. That way, you manage to avoid the ridiculous inclusions that only have 10% of a discount. Smart shopping right there.
Littlewoods Ireland: There's up to 50% off (seems to be the discount of the day) at Littlewoods – I love the Myleene Klass range (even though I wish I didn't because I'm fundamentally irked by celebrity fashion lines, but the heart wants what the heart wants).
NA-KD: Props to NA-KD for giving up to 70% off in their sale, and for having some seriously deadly bits 'n' pieces from their own line and other brands – including Free People, one of my favourite eco-friendly fashion labels.
Net-a-Porter: The Net-a-Porter sale is always deadly, and right now there's 50% off mega high-end brands like Victoria Beckham – but, if you have your eye on something in particular, be quick because they don't hang around for long. I have so much on my wish list, it's depressing!
River Island: I passed by the Grafton St store late yesterday evening and they were busy gussying it up for the sale – so I'm guessing that'll kick off on St Stephen's Day. It's another "up to 50% off" candidate, and pretty much everything I've bought from RI in the past six months is discounted. Bloody typical.
Topshop: There's "up to" 50% off in the Topshop.com sale as well, but it's pretty decent, with some great savings to be had from clothing to accessories. I'll admit I'm a big Topshop fan, but in the past few years prices have increased and increased, so I'll essentially only shop there during sale time now!
