If you know me, you’ll know there are few things I love more than a good sale. In fact, my surname should have been Anja van Zyl. That’s how much I love it. (Can you make a dad joke if you’re a 28-year-old woman? It appears that the answer is yes.)
A few years ago Black Friday, which falls on 29 November this year, was only a thing you saw in American movies, but it has since gained popularity in South Africa with retailers offering big discounts in-store and online. If you’re an introvert like me, I’m sure the thought of going in-store on Black Friday horrifies you, which is why it’s so great that we live in the time of e-commerce.
I remember when Black Friday just started in South Africa how difficult it would be to shop online. Items would disappear from your cart, servers would crash, tears would roll down your cheeks… But now brands have really streamlined the process. Superbalist, in particular, really offers a user-friendly Black Friday experience and last year I ended up buying a gorgeous Vera Moda dress and a bright pink wrap dress.
To avoid disappointment on Black Friday, you can download the Superbalist app and start building a wishlist for d-day. That way, come 29 November, you can just check all the items in your wishlist to see which ones have been discounted. And knowing Superbalist, most of it will be.
Here’s what I’ve included in my wishlist for Black Friday. Some tops, skirts, homeware and sneakers.
Mango Check Pattern Midi Dress
I love the simplicity of it! Check it out on Superbalist here.
Cotton On Prairie Shirred Peplum Blouse
I’m here for this season’s puff sleeve trend! This Cotton On top is super cute.
Missguided Woven Wrap Blouse
I love the colour and the cut. This Missguided blouse is definitely in my wishlist.
New Balance Wsxrchld Sneakers
I mean, they’re gold. What’s not to like? I’m definitely adding these New Balance to my wishlist.
Sixth Floor Planter Pendant
Okay, hold up. So you’re saying this is a light…and a plant? YAS! *Adds planter pendant to wishlist immediately*
