Oh, how I tried to resist becoming part of the Black Friday mania. It’s coming up to Christmas, I’m trying to save and sure don’t I have plenty of clothes?
Then I got an email from Topshop saying there’s up to 50% off everything on the site. 50%!!!! I’m almost certain that I’ve died and gone to heaven.
So I had a little look around online at my favourite sites and before I knew it, I had a wishlist as long as my arm and was filled with severe anger at myself for not budgeting correctly this month (again).
While the effects of fast fashion has been a hot topic of late, I see Black Friday as an opportunity to save money on things you’ve already wanted for a while, rather than an opportunity to buy everything in site – as easy as that may be.
With that in mind, I’ve put together a list of things I’ve spotted and loved lately, which just so happen to be (or will be) discounted. As I said, am I in heaven?
There’s no way I’d ever be able to afford to even buy a percentage of the things on this list, but a gal can dream, right? The things at the top of my list are the white Bowie t-shirt, wine midi skirt, leopard midi skirt, biker boots and faux-shearling coat.
A little breakdown of the shops I’ve featured…
Topshop – Up to 50% off EVERYTHING
ASOS – No Black Friday deal as of yet, but be prepared and save the items to your basket for the inevitable discount code to come
Bershka – Up to 50% off selected items online from 10pm Thursday, or from 8pm Thursday if you download the app
& Other Stories – No Black Friday deal as of yet, but be prepared and save the items to your basket for the inevitable discount code to come
Pretty Little Thing – New codes arriving daily. I wouldn’t buy anything with less than 30% off as I’d say they’ll probably do 50% off on Friday.
Of course, there are dozens of other retailers with massive discount codes, but these are the ones I’d be shopping from.
Ready, set, shop!
