The madness of Black Friday Sales is finally here and this year seems to be even better than the last. There are amazing discounts and sales everywhere and personally , I prefer a quick rough guide on how to swim through the sea of countless videos and blogposts and still manage to stay afloat.

This blogpost is by no means a compendium of every single sale or discount code there is out there but more of a personalised approach of brands that I personally enjoy and would purchase from or have purchased before. If you are interested, read on and let me know what you enjoyed from the post and what you purchased as well from 2018’s Black friday sales!

There are some designer brands that I usually never buy full price. To name a few,  here is my list. I have also attached  clickable links  so that it  is easier for you to browse through.
1) Self Portrait .  This is a mid range designer brand that offers amazing dresses for  that special occasion . There are  always  discounts all year round so watch out for them. Online retailers such as Matches fashion (cheapest prices) , Farfetch ( great selection)  and Net-a-Porter offer the best range of dresses for this brand.  I love the look of the Azaelea dress but being petite , this dress tends to run a little on a longer side for me . My favourites this season is this amazing Self Portrait Embroidered Mesh Mini Dress and Self Portrait Chain trimmed Embroidered Tulle Midi Dress. This design comes in  a longer version but they were completely sold out on sizes on Matches fashion . The pop of fuschia on the Self Portrait Pleated Crepe Midi Dress

2) Valentino Rockstuds Heels.  I am a huge fan of Valentino Rockstuds Heels and I’ll let you in on a secret…never buy them at full price! I have my favourite kitten heel version in Nude patient and I wear them  all the time (review on my blog here). They look as good as  the first day I got them 2 years ago . I thought I might add  another one this year from the Selfridges sale (use code SELFCCE) . Farfetch and Matches fashion do amazing discounts as well but I find Selfridges the best when you are starting out with classic colours. Note that for non-UK buyers, you are exempted from UK VAT for anything less then $1000.

3) Valentino Rockstud Bags.  Ssense are really offering the best discounts and selection for these bags. Also check out Selfridges and Farfetch. They are now definitely on my radar.

4) Saint Laurent are really nailing it with their designs. My favourites are those with silver hardware and croc embossed leather detail. I am still tossing up whether to get the  Medium Kate Chain Tassel Bag vs the  Black Croc Sunset Monogram Chain Bag . Again, the online store that has the best selection and best prices for these Saint Laurent bags at the moment  is  Ssense ( link here).

5) Stuart Weitzman Boots. They are my  wardrobe staples  for the winter and cooler months. I love my tielands and 5050s to bits. They fit the legs like gloves. Perfect paired with either jeans or a classic suede skirt, this item is a must and I find that Shopbop  has the best discounts. If you are lucky , you may get your size and a seasonal colour on Farfetch as well.  For more varieties, the official Stuart Weitzman website is also currently on sale up to 40 % !

Discount codes to keep in  mind
1) Selfridges : SELFCCE ( 20 % off at designer items and 10 % beauty )
2)Farfetch :x20BF ( 20 % on full priced and already discounted items)  also best selection of Balmain logo tees
