It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Did you sing that, like I did when I wrote it? Before we hit December, and before the festive season explodes all over us, we are going to watch the craziness of Black Friday explode before our very eyes. For the last few years that Black Friday has been a thing in the UK, I have watched in sheer disbelief at the hoards of people queuing for hours to get their hands on special deals specifically for the day. Being a indoorsy gal, I prefer to do my sales shopping from the comfort of my own home via the internet, whilst wrapped up in a blanket, and preferably with tea and biscuits to hand. This year, I won’t be partaking in the Black Friday sales as much as I’d like to, but I have to share with you a preview of what you can expect from Bows Boutiques, my go-to for fast fashion.
I’ve been having a few little clothing issues this last few weeks. I’m relying heavily on layering as it’s either freezing in my house, or way too warm. Then there’s the outdoor issue of it being freezing and windy, or freezing and torrential rain, or freezing and trying to snow. I seem to be lacking in jumpers and sweatshirts to layer up with, so after getting my sequined star oversized sweater from Bows Boutiques, I turned to them again to add some more warmth to my wardrobe.
The Bows Boutiques Claudia Ruffle Sleeve Poncho jumper is perfect for layering. Made with a cashmere blend, it feels soft and cosy on and can be layered with a vest top underneath for when it gets colder. Wearing an oversized jumper means that any lumps and bumps are concealed and it sits at a nice length on my hips. The ruffle detailing on the sleeves look so lovely, and its what drew me to this style when I first saw it on the website. Although it looks like a poncho, it doesn’t have open sides so under garments aren’t on show. I really do like the selection of oversized jumpers at Bows Boutiques and I’m really tempted to add a few more as they are so wearable, whilst washing well and not getting bobbles on them. I also adore anything that has a cashmere blend. I can’t think of anything more comforting than curling up in sumptuous fabrics whilst it’s freezing cold outside.
I’ve dug out my imitation leather pants from H&M, and I forgot how much I loved these. Again, they are great with the cold weather that we are having and they are really comfortable. They’re so versatile in that they can be dressed up with a pair of heels and a more dressy top, or dressed down with a jumper and wedged trainers like these Erika Crystal wedges. True to size and with a bit of bling, they make quite a statement. Again, they are so comfortable, and although they were a little tight at first, the material gives after a few wears and they fit like a glove.
For Black Friday, Bows Boutiques are going to be having a site wide offer on their beautiful clothes. From casual day wear, to coats and shoes, there are going to be some huge bargains to be had with massive discounts. It’s going to be a great time to stock up on much needed items and fill your wardrobe at a fraction of the price. The homepage of Bows Boutiques will have all the offers this week and over the Black Friday weekend.
