The Sarah Arnett Effect – Bridesmaid Gowns


SA logo

I recently attended a Sarah Arnett sale.  It was a ready to wear sale from her last collection and was held in a pop up shop in central Brighton.  Mr Boston was on business nearby and said that he would rendezvous with me at the shop. Sarah’s clothes have this almost cult like following amongst women and word had got out that there was going to be a sale.

Doors didn’t open til 6 and the queues began to form at around 3.  Dresses were in some cases quarter of the price.  You can imagine the kind of bun fight that ensued.  I grabbed a beautiful silk kimono dress and a couple of day dresses, but lo and behold I also found 4 matching floor length gowns which would be beautiful for my bridesmaids.

The print looked vintage 1930’s in the most beautiful hues of grey and pink.  I snapped them up.  When I looked outside Mr B was watching from the alley.  “Quite extraordinary Wildlife!” He exclaimed! “It was much like vultures descending on a flock of gazelles.”  I turned around to see that in less than an hour the shop had been stripped of all its contents.  That’s the Sarah Arnett effect turns usually same women into predatory animals.

That included me!  I bagged 4 stunning gowns…..the girls will be pleased!
