Black Friday Trick: Cheap and Sales

October is when all the excitement related to the BLACK FRIDAY begins, and on that fateful Friday in November we all lose it. This year I decided to do it differently and not wait for black Friday, because I knew the queues would be unbearable; I instead started my Black Friday fashion purchases at cheap prices in September and ended it a day before the actual date. The biggest trick I employed this year was  Sales, Sales, Sales, which kept my closet happy, but my bank account the happiest.

The multi purpose bodysuit I got for R80 is an absolute win. I wore it with this grey skirt that I was stunned to buy at R20 from LEGIT around May this year, a whole 6 months before Black Friday. The bodysuit looked pretty good with this pair of shorts I got for just R60 the day before black Friday.

Dress and bag both cost me R50 and R80 respectively, resulting in an outstanding outfit that makes you look absolutely stunning for a throw away price. Looking for stuff in the sales section definitely is rewarding, buying stuff at cheap stores is also very rewarding because your closet stays happy while your pocket is the happiest.

This is by far my favourite 2018 combo, and not just because the outfit looks good, but mainly because it cost me just under R200; absolute proof that happiness exists in fashion when you can hack the black Friday trick. This is an attire you can comfortably wear to a party and semi-formal event.

The black Friday tricks hacked my 2018 fashion budget and I ended up with this epic outfit that would otherwise seem expensive.  A whole outfit just worth R160. You don’t need to slay expensively if you can hack the system. This amazing blazer was bought by my sister in Kenya at Ksh300, an equivalent of R30, skirt was worth R50.

Another hack to the fashion budgeting was this amazing dress coat that I literally got for R60. I must admit that this is the item that shocked me when I found myself in Creative Shop a day before Black Friday. I had walked into shops uncountable times hoping to get such a coat. I must admit I was ready to spend money on it, but black Friday tricks came in handy, legit gave me what I longed for at a throw away price.

This afternoon or night-out or  girls-meet outfit, from Creative Shop forms part of my 2018 Black Friday tricks. Shorts cost R50 and body suit from Mr Price cost R80. I basically, tricked my closet to have an amazing outfit that I could use for several events for just R130. Sincerely, anyone can look good and all it takes is knowing the tricks on how to slay on a budget.

I legit ensure that items in my closet range from R50- R170 without compromising on quality. My all year black Friday tricks got me this dress for just R100; a dress that would serve as an amazing smart casual, dinner or even a cocktail party dress.

The Yellow Fashion Fever

There is always a colour that fashionably sparks emotions in us. Well, my 2018 has been surrounded by the “Yellow Fashion Fever”. Several of my posts have had this yellow being featured, including my graduation outfit.

The immense love of yellow, started when I went to buy a black long skirt at my favourite shopping spot. The shop attendant looked at me and said, ”this yellow skirt (https://akuraclosetraid.com/2018/06/28/fashion-preference-long-or-short/) would look amazing on you”. There and then, my love for yellow began. I have not gone to the shop and failed to get a yellow outfit. My buddy Natasha says ‘we leaving yellow in 2018’, but I doubt if this love will come to an end.

I must say that these two jumpsuits have been the epitome of my love for the “Yellow Fashion Fever”. They both had an outstanding feel when I tried them on. It was like I had found the colour that symbolises happiness, resilience, passion, elegance and love all at once.

The fact that they were different made me overlook the question of “why am I buying the same colour of clothes?” Each jumpsuit had its own personally touch to my closet.

The short yellow jumpsuit stood out because of the belt, the one sided off-shoulder style and of course the buttons on the one arm. The fact that it would allow me to wear it with any colour of shoes was an absolute bonus.

The long jumpsuit was a complete stunner. My best friend saw it and all she thought of was, ‘birthday outfit’. Took a lot of discipline for me not to rock it to any events I had to attend before my birthday. The open back, the long strands that allows one to tie the jumpsuit in different ways, and the ‘flying’ style of the pants at the bottom were breath taking.

The best part about these outfits is that they both cost me less than R400 in total. My sister would say ” Slaying on a budget” . I would say  ” Slaying on a budget and with best emotions attached to what you wear“.
