Because we can benefit from Black Friday too.

Words by

It's currently Thanksgiving over in America which means that soon, the clock will tip over to the shopping day of days that is Black Friday.

The American equivalent of our boxing day sales (well, kinda), Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in which American retailers make everything super cheap and we all lose our minds. The day draws it's name from the fact that retailer's profits go "in the black", which is excellent news for all of us, even down here in Oz. 

Although Black Friday isn't officially a "thing" in Australia, with the increased globalisation of online shopping we can still nab the bargains that this joyous occasion brings. 

To help you out in your newfound shopping endeavour, we scoured the internet for rumoured Black Friday sales and compiled a list of our favourites that you can take advantage of Down Under. 

3.1 Phillip Lim- The FJ favourite is apparently offering up to 40% off.

Alice and Olivia- The New York based-label is already running 25% off across everything. No code necessary.

asos- The online retailer is already running 20% off everything with the code FRIDAY2014.

Helmut Lang- We cannot find any allusions as to exactly what discounts will be offered, but the rumours say they will be good. Nonetheless, the label is already fofering 40% off a swoonworthy range.

J Brand- Offering a cool 30% off with the code BLKFRI2014.

J.Crew- Offering an even cooler 40% off with the code HOLIDAY

The Real Real and Shop-Hers- The consignment stores are rumoured to be offering some pretty good deals on their already heavily reduced goodness.

Otte- The New York-based retailer stocking the likes of Kenzo and Alexander Wang has already started its sales, with 20% off storewide and 40% off sale items. See their site for codes.

Owen NYC- Another New York retailer who is rumoured to take 30% off brands like Acne, Isabel Marant and our home-grown Zimmermann.

Shopbop- The e-giant is taking up to 25% off orders with the code GOBIG14.

Urban Outfitters- The all-American retailer is pulling an extra 50% off sale items, with even better deals expected to drop soon.
