Black Friday - Best Fashion Picks & Times

I would normally post my favourite outfit on a Friday, but today I decided to share where I'll be heading to grab some fashion bargains for Black Friday.
Its a pretty big deal this year in the UK and not surprising as there are some serious discounts on offer, and even for the faint hearted who don't want to brave the queueing, the pushing, the shoving and probably a small amount of pandemonium, there are plenty of brands running great Black Friday deals online.
Here are some of the best Fashion ones, what items I'm hoping are in the sale and the times all these deals start and end too!
Topshop is advertising up to 50% off for Black Friday and has started already with their offer lasting till  Monday. Lets be honest not much is gonna be 50% off but a few bargains to be had like these Brit Holographic lace up boots down from £40 to £30
Or this very Christmassy Floral Glitter Velvet Jumpsuit down to £28 from £42

Boohoo are offering a pretty sweet 30% off  AND free delivery starting on Friday and ending Monday. You don't need a code. 
I'll be eyeing up this Ada sequin sleeve bomber jacket 

Whistles has a lovely 25% off with no real details of how long its on for but grab it whole you can. I'll be snapping up these incredible Lace culottes and then hiding my credit card bill from my husband!!

Warehouse has a tasty 25% off from Thursday until Monday with the code CYBER25
My top picks are definitely this incredible Cream Floral Applique dress, this has so much detail to it and is so pretty.

Or this simple piece of embellished knitwear, perfect for Winter sparkles I reckon.
Missguided have 20% off which isn't as great as other sites BUT they started on Thursday and the code works till Monday. Use CYBER20

I'm heading straight for this cute Dorothie Jacket and Trouser co-ord thats been in my sidebar for months,

And in fact another co-ord but a knitted one this time and also one that I've also had my beady eye on for weeks!!!

Asos too are only offering 20% but they win brownie points for extending their offer till Tuesday! Use code CYBERWKND20
My picks would be this beautiful brights knitted jacket. I'm such a sucker for knitwear.

And possibly this entire outfit, I LOVE these Whistles culottes in black lace as I've mentioned so if I already snapped them up I'll be grabbing this sleeveless top to go with them! soooo cute and I'm really in to high neck tops at the moment too, so I love this whole look.


You'll have to be pretty quick with River Islands offer as its offer only lasts 11am to 3pm today (Friday), some say 20% some 25% but all say at 11am use the code TREAT28 to score the discount.
I might possibly pop this beauty of a Floral Print Shirt in my basket which has a nice split detail in the back too.

River Island Black Floral shirt

Or maybe that phenomenal maxi dress I snapped at the AW14 Press day

River Island Red Bandeau Maxi

What Black Friday deals have you spotted?? Will you be spending away or hiding away??

My Christmas Wishlist

This year I have made an actual Christmas list. There are so many things that I spot when I'm out shopping and so I've taken snapping them on my iPhone so I don't forget. This year I've put them all in an online Wishlist so I can email it to my husband, family and friends and all the links and images are there.  Here's whats on my Christmas list this year!
I've asked for money from my folks so I can add to my new camera fund. I want something smaller to take to events and I'm hoping to get an  Olympus Pen E-PL7 Camera (5) but I'm just sussing out what features it is I really want/need and trying to decide but so far this beauty of a camera is winning. I tried one out at LFW and loved the flip screen and the fact you can use lens too.
 I spotted this Accessorize Clock Handbag (1) at the Accessorize AW14 Press Day earlier in the year and loved it so much I had to put it on my list. I love how quirky it is and as I didn't manage to snap up the camera one in the Summer I fancy having this one instead.
I've also added a few other Accessorize bits to my list from the Z For Accessorize collection. Z for Accessorize Orla Bracelets (9) Z For Accessorize Triangle Earrings (10) and another necklace too. I love this collection, I already own three pieces from it and I want so many more. Its all Gold plated, so delicate and really reasonably priced.
I spotted this River Island Purple Blanket Scarf  (2) whilst out shopping in Cambridge on Saturday and I love the lilac colour and how soft and snuggly it was. I also fell in love with this River Island Layered Necklace  (8) and promptly snapped a picture of it and added it to my list.
I've added some albums to my List too including Sam Smiths album (6) and George Ezra's too. (3) and beauty wise I've popped this  Kiko Stick Eyeshadow (7) on in the shade Emerald Green after I spotted it on a another blogger at an event and loved the colour!
Lastly I had to put a Black Tied Custom bracelet (4) on my list. I've wanted one for ages, and I'm hoping to get maybe "Bang On" stamped on it. What do you think?
So that's what I'm hoping to get for Christmas. What are you hoping for? Have you written a wishlist - leave me the link below if you have??

Knits and Over The Knee Boots - Outfit Post

Phone case - H by Henry Holland
This is my first foray into the world of over the knee boots and I decided to start with a fairly low heeled pair from Dorothy Perkins. So far I am loving the look. I think because they are chunky and low they avoid the potential "Pretty Woman" vibe that an over the knee boot could have. I've tried these boots over jeans too and they also look really cool, so I'm so glad I gave them a go.
I think this has been a pretty successful Dorothy Perkins moment, but what yours?? Do you have a favourite pair of Dorothy Perkins shoes or boots? What would be your DP Moment?
If you share a photo of you wearing your fave Dorothy Perkins shoes either on Twitter or Facebook tagging Dorothy Perkins and use the hashtags 

#MyDorothyMoment and #DPShoeSelfie

You could win A Years Supply Of Shoes!!! How amazing would that be???

I'm off for a days Christmas shopping this Saturday in Cambridge with my sister and I'm thinking this will be my outfit of choice again. Its really comfy especially this cosy jumper dress from River island, I've not had it off since I bought it. I'm thinking I might like another in another colour, maybe with a roll neck??
What do you think of the whole over the knee boot trend? Would you wear them??

Floral Co-Ord Outfit - Rochelle Humes for Very

Shoes - Wallis*
Clutch - Primark

I'm so glad that Co-Ords are still going strong for AW14. I love that they are simple to wear and style up but also give the versatility of wearing just the top or just the trousers/skirt with something else. This set of from the Rochelle Humes collection for Very. You might remember I went to see the Summer collection at a very exclusive event in Claridges. You can read my post all about the Rochelle For Very event here and was a really big fan of the collection. This co-ord is kind of a scuba style fabric which I'm not normally a fan of but the print is amazing and I love the colours. I reckon I'm gonna style up the trousers too with a plain black top for a night out also, I think that would look really nice too.
Last week I headed into London for the Very Cosmo party. I was one of a few bloggers invited by Very to attend the event. 
You can see a video of mine and the other bloggers picks from the Very AW14 Collection here.
More videos and a full post showing what I wore to come very soon! (no pun intended!)

White Shirt & Leather Outfit Post

Fedora - Shelikes
Bag - Warehouse
I've been wanting a pair of leather trousers for ages and a pair that were half stretch and half leather just so they're a bit comfier. This pair are by Forever Unique and are so comfy and have a really nice biker style design up the sides. I think they work best with a really simple white shirt like this one by Diesel which has a really unique shape to it. It has a wide almost batwing sleeve with a wide trim edge. Both are from Repertoire Fashion and readers of Bang On Style can get 10% off with the code BANGONSTYLE10
They have load of great designer bargains including some pretty amazing  Ted Baker handbags so check them out.
I'm over the moon its Friday today, I'm so ready for the weekend. Yesterday I raced around London heading to four press days and the fabulous Very/Cosmo/Company event at the Oxo Tower. It was an amazing day but exhausting! You can see all my snaps over on my instagram

Here's to a lie in tomorrow a rest for my poor feet!
