my black friday picks

It is soooo difficult not to be tempted by the Black Friday - Cyber Monday discounts but it would be rude not to have a quick peruse of my favourite High Street shops to see what's on offer and catching my eye at the moment! These are just a few random items that I'm trying to resist but that I thought I'd share! First up is Gap as they seem to have the best deal with 40% off everything online and 50% off instore! Yep, my first pick is that jacket that seems to be the bloggers favourite, I've got to admit I am sitting on my hands in order to avoid clicking the button!

I said I wouldn't be doing a Christmas jumper but this Nordic style sweater looks so gorgeous!

Now onto Mango who are doing 30% off until 29th November using code 5BLACK2015 at checkout. I love this little beaded jacket, this would be fab to jazz up jeans and heels for Christmas drinks....love it with the red leather trews too!

I think this blouse would be a really useful addition to my Winter wardrobe as I have nothing like it....definitely a gap in there for one of these.

I love all the colourful versions of these stoles/snoods/popsicles but in all honestly I would probably get the most wear out of this plain black fur one from Mango

Mango faux fur snood, though I'd call this a stole?!

There are a couple of things I'm hankering after from ASOS who have 20% off everything using CYBER at checkout. I would love a fun fur coat and this Brave Soul one ticks all of my boxes....a bit of something to glam up an evening outfit but would also look fab with jeans and hi-tops for daytime!

Last but not least, as I have become a fan with dresses/skirts worn with boots this season this swing dress would be another welcome addition to my wardrobe, I think this may well be snuck onto the Christmas wish list!

So these are the things that are sitting in my virtual baskets....will I take the plunge?! 

In other news....following on from my last post, the gorgeous Eve All Worn Out, as well as another lovely commenter Michelle who alerted me to an alternative pair of Uggs which I have to say are much nicer (IMO) than the Petra's which were top of my Christmas wish list. I have now purchased and stashed these on behalf of Father Christmas ;0)

Please share your Black Friday purchases with me!


  1. Not hit the button on anythng yet Michelle - I'm being good or rather there are no discounts on what I'm after - grrrr!

    And the Uggs are cute!

  2. That's not like you Sue.......mind you it would be so easy to get carried away just because of the discounts! You are right to hang out for the things you want!

    I am actually looking forward to wearing the Uggs......toasty feet! :0) xx

  3. I'm the same as Sue, I haven't taken the plunge at all! I didn't have anything earmarked to grab if it was reduced, and I wasn't tempted to buy anything on impulse (although I do love those Gap knits...) I'm at a point where I feel I don't really need anything right now, in fact I think I'm going to make December a no spend month! Do you think I'll manage it?? ;-D xx

    1. I have driven myself mad just looking at the Black Friday deals and come to the conclusion that there really is nothing else I need too! Also hoping it will be a no purchase month of December!! xx

  4. I've been looking, but so far not been tempted....Still Michelle there's a few hours to go, so never say never!!
    Helen xx

    1. I'm still looking Helen, but probably too hard! Now I've secured the Uggs from my Christmas wish list there really isn't anything else I want either.....isn't it always the way! xx

  5. Love your outfits as always, Michelle. What did you buy??? Lynne xx
