I’ll be the first to admit that I always forget about Black Friday. Maybe it’s because the past couple of years I haven’t been in a strong enough financial position to go mad, or perhaps it’s due to the odd timing of the event, as Thanksgiving isn’t really a thing here in the UK. However this year I’m determined to pick a couple of things up, so here’s a rundown of the stuff I’ll be wish-listing, and hopefully – maaaybe – purchasing one or two of.
1 – Cracked Vinyl Zip Mini Skirt from Topshop
Not to hyperbolise, but could this be the ultimate pleather/wet look/vinyl skirt? It definitely ticks my “edgy” box, (yes, that does look as lame written down as it sounded in my head) and I seem to find that TopShop skirts fit a lot better than their trousers so hopefully we’ve scored a winner with this one.
2 – Black Maxi Dress from Pretty Little Thing
I loooove how nineties this dress looks – proper Ten Things I Hate About You throwbacks. ANother one to add to your party collection, plus it’s 30% off
3 – Naked Smokey Eye Palette from Debenhams
I’ve been eyeing this palette up for ages and now I think there aren’t many excuses left as Debenhams have discounted it as part of their Black Friday sales. It’s so sexy, so sleek… imagine all the different cat eyes I could create with this palette. I’m sold.
4 – Dark Iridescent Sequin Skirt from Miss Selfridge
Miss Selfridge has some bangers in their Black Friday selection this year, one of which being this ridiculously cool sequin skirt. It’s not too tight so I reckon it would flatter most people. If you’re looking for affordable party outfits, this might be the one you need.
5 – Grey Fur Cross Body Bag from Miss Selfridge
Speaking of Miss Selfridge and party season, have you seeeen this bag?? If you’re like me and you wear all black outfits in the hopes of keeping it simple then this would be an amazing addition to jazz things up.
6- Purology Reconstruct and Repair Mask
I have a lot of love for Purology, as a haircare brand that is not only cruelty free but also free of SLS in their shampoos. I relied on their Perfect 4 Platinum range when I had blonde ends. They have 30% off the whole Purology range on FeelUnique, the discount is well worth it so get in while you can!
7- Adidas White and Grey Stan Smiths from ASOS
I’ve been eyeing these up for ages, and apparently ASOS is offering 60% off shoes and accessories this Black Friday so it might be worth me checking back tomorrow…
8 – Pomegranate Candle from The White Company
The White Company are offering 20% off nearly everything with the code on their website, so if you’re looking for nice homeware or a Christmas gift for your mum, this is the place to look.
9 – Puffer Jacket from Missguided
Missguided are killing it with their puffer jackets lately, and this one is no exception. Did I mention there’s 50% off everything on their site? I’ve been wanting to invest in one for ages, perhaps this is the guy…
10 – Kick Flare Jeans from AllSaints
Everything is 30% off on AllSaints right now, and whilst I’m sure this would be great if you have that spare £400 for the coat you’ve always wanted, what’s more exciting is that their jeans are now within affordable reach – down from the £90 mark to £60. Splurge while you can.
11 – Croc Ankle Boots from Whistles
Whistles is such an aspirational shop for me – when I’m rich and famous, it will be where I buy the majority of my clothes, I swear. They’ve got 25% off store-wide for Black Friday, which has left me more than excited about these sexy, sexy boots. I really need a pair for winter, yeah?
12 – Ceramic Planters from West Elm
And finally, some gorgeous wall-mounted planters from West Elm. They’re doing loads of discounts over the next week so keep your eyes peeled!
Hope this helps you out in your Black Friday shopping! Best of luck with finding some bangers, I have my fingers crossed for you.
