Black friday has well and truly begun in the UK, but never fear! The sales are often more like a black weekend in reality. All the big stores will be doing massive reductions and things will be getting a bit crazy, and beating my way through a shop with my handbag is a pastime I am not remotely interested in. There are however lots of very cool smaller, independent brands which are doing awesome offers this weekend with their fabulous wares, which are definitely worth your while. Here are my top 3 most coveted picks for the weekend. Enjoy!
Kangan Arora Design. Textile designer and colour-way whizz. I’ve long been obsessing about these interior designs which have a fresh mixture of ancient India and modern gritty London. This designer is one to watch, as she hits all the best shows and stocks all the hottest boutiques in town. Stop dilly-dallying and snap up a bargain now. I think I’m just going to HAVE to save up for one of her new rugs too!
Next up is Wolf and Moon. I’ve said it before but i’ll say it again; this handmade jewellery company is just getting bigger and better with every season. I only own a couple of their pieces so far but I endeavour to rectify this with every pay check! Who can resist all the sparkly, shimmery shapes- and the brilliant new Swallow range is to die for! The pieces come beautifully packaged in little black boxes or velvet pouches, so they make the ideal gift too. Sign up the mailing list too for extra offers and to stay in the know.
Last but not least we have Lotta from Stockholm. We all know Lotta’s clogs now, even if I only heard about them myself a year ago. These REAL swedish clogs are going from strength to strength, building a cult following and being the answer to every girl’s shoe-prayers! You don’t need me to tell you about them really, just get over there, quick smart!
Beware! Not losing your head in a sale is one thing, but don’t be too slow in getting to that checkout because smaller companies means smaller runs of stock – which is GREAT – but this also means that the hare will win the race this time!
Im going to be posting my other favourite Black Friday picks on Instagram over the weekend so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those! Happy weekend everybody!
