It's Black Friday this week! Will you be the first one to hit the shops as soon as their doors open?
Black Friday is originally an American tradition which sees retailers offering massive discounts on products for one day only. Of course, Britain caught onto the hype a few years ago and the shops on our high streets began offering Black Friday deals on the actual proposed day or even a week before!
Boohoo.com recently challenged me to style an all black outfit on a budget. Boohoo is one of my favourite brands because the clothing is always on trend, so affordable and they always have deals going on that you can't help but clear your basket at the checkout by pressing order! So, of course I wanted to get involved in the challenge!
As soon as I come across the mia boutique satin shirt*, I knew I wanted to work an outfit around it. I love the oversized fit and started picturing outfits I could wear featuring it. It's one of them pieces that can be dressed up or down which is perfect for me when I decide to go on a last minute dinner date or drinks after work! I therefore decided I wanted to mix up some textures as the whole outfit would be black after all.
Let's not be boring...
the other bits:
very faux fur bag (last year)
As suede skirts are on trend at the moment, I chose the bella suedette mini skirt*. Due to the popper buttons down the front, I did find it runs small so I chose a size bigger than what I usually am and it's become a lot less risky to now wear! It is one of them skirts you can't really wear if you know you're going to be eating a burger!
I personally only really wear A-line skirts as they are perfect for my body shape... a smaller waist but big hips and bum! They also have a flattering high waisted fit which again is perfect for me as I am not so confident with my stomach.
As you can see, the mix of oversized and A-line shapes means you can wear them in different ways. Here I decided to untuck the shirt and wear it over the skirt which I really like too.
I have got a Christmas job in retail so I will be working this Black Friday but I am hoping to snag some bargains online as soon as I get home!
Boohoo are taking part in the Black Friday shenanigans this year. There is a huge countdown running this week until Friday so don't miss out on some great discounts!
Is there anything you're hoping to snatch up super cheap?
