“Shopping is cheaper than therapy”
Shopping is cheaper especially now that it is black Friday, everywhere all you see is BLACK FRIDAY SALE! And if that does not make you extremely excited and nervous at the same time then I don’t know because as much as I like sales I can’t stand the chaos that comes with it. Yes we have all seen those videos on Facebook of the black Friday fights, where you saw it first and someone else tries to take the only one thats left, and yes absolute chaos.
Now to be honest, I am a fashion designer, and I love my shopping. Im not a fan of shopping for electronics or food for cheap, I want to go to my favourite clothing stores, so in this blog post I will talk about some of my favourite brands and where they are situated and off course how YOU can a get a very good black Friday deal to go visit those places. Yes I said visit those places.
- OFF – WHITE
This is my number one, so Off-White is a high end streetwear fashion label founded by the American creative designer Virgil Abloh, and can I say that he is killing the game right now. There are 24 stores open world wide, from New York to London to Singapore and even in Mikonos Greece. I think the one in Mikonos really draws my attention especially because I could totally do a holiday in Greece.
So lately I have been liking Balenciaga more than I used to, it is another luxury brand ( you guys, this is why I need a rich Husband ) founded in spain and is now owned by a French Company. There are 8 exclusive boutiques in the united states and of course there is a Balenciaga store in New York. New York is a place I must visit to go do some shopping.
So Zara is also available in South Africa and in my city, BUUUT I heard the ones across the ocean is three times the size and I would rather go shop in the Zara store in London. Did you know Zara is the main brand of the index group, the worlds largest apparel retailer.
Black Friday deals you will find World Wide. But now just to give you some tips on how to shop, because shopping for anything on sale can be stressful, because you want to make sure that you are saving money and not over spending.
