Heeeeellllo! For a much more professional-grade and editorially sound BFCM (that’s Black Friday through Cyber Monday, an acronym I will only admit here that I did not know until about 2 weeks ago) round-up of sales, mosey on over to Magasin, which I write for but where I am reined in by a brilliant Editor-in-Chief, as opposed to here, where I can commit such crimes as this sentence’s length and syntax with nary a slap on the wrist. Can I use nary like that? Who knows, who cares! THIS IS HR, BABY!!!!
Ok this is not gonna be that exciting. This is serious business. This is the most capitalistic week of the year and by god we must consume! Here is the initial and official 2022 HR guide to BFCM sales, divvied up into independent brands/creators you should follow up with this week, the infamous SSENSE sale, and a few other deals from brands that I didn’t qualify as tiny enough to warrant first billing, combed through and collated with a chronically cheeky credence. There will be more BFCM content later, as more deals crack through their brands’ shells.
Note: Items in this post will not be marked “sale,” as they usually are in HR posts, because they are all on sale and I’m cutting corners!
If you like these posts, please let me know by sharing (tag me if on IG so I can see and thank you!), liking, saving, and commenting on HR’s Instagram, subbing to the HR Patreon for as little as two bucks a month (extra posts, personal styling, and more available on there!) or throwing me a few shillings on Ko-fi if you’re able.
Thank you SO MUCH for your support, whatever you are able and willing to do to help is extremely valuable to me and I’m honored to be a small part of your life on the web.
From 11/25 to 12/5, take 10% off this magical collection of button bags, phone slings, and more with the code JINGLEJANGLE. Below are my picks.
Chuck aka @goodstinks
DM the above Instagram account for $10 off (coming out to $20) what quickly became my favorite baseball cap (below) when I bought it from Chuck over the summer. If you’re in NYC, he might even hand-deliver it to you, if you’re lucky. I was. He’s also selling upcycled skull caps and maybe, if we all whine enough, he’ll start making Theranos hats.
Take 20% off this selection of incredible baubles with the code forevernoon from 11/23 to 11/28. Everything on the site is genius, but the Twin Pearl Stud (below), come on: “A baroque pearl meets its match in a perfectly round itty bitty cultured pearl. The sweetest pair!” WHY DID A PRODUCT DESCRIPTION MAKE ME EMOTIONAL? I also love the Big Bubble Ring a lot. I cannot for the life of me figure out my ring size.
I’ve been following Zoe and their textiles since, like, 2015, and now they follow me (hi!). Funny how life works. Anyway, take 20% off their trippy treats that include pillows, blankets, rugs, and more with SQUIGGLE20 from noon on 11/24 to midnight on 11/28. I am transfixed by the below “Aura Blanket.”
Everything in the excellent anime merch shop featuring shows like Golden Boy and Slam Dunk is 25% off with BF25, but my heart obviously belongs to Maki Zen’in (and Mai…). Their prints are great quality and they have some sick enamel pins still in stock—if you know me, you know enamel pins are my world’s stupidest kryptonite.
This gender-indifferent jewelry brand is offering 20% off everything this week. I am in love with the necklace that’s literally just a bunch of staples in a chain, but everything is great on the site.
50 SSENSE Sale Picks Under $250
Let’s get down to it. Items marked with a happy face are things I own and have been satisfied with, so wholeheartedly recommend. Everything else, I’m going off a delicate balance of pragmatism and whimsy, apparent value for the price, and if I get that special tingly-compulsive feeling when I look at the picture. Sorted by ascending price as of 11/22/22 and not separated by “gender” or “category.” CATEGORIES ARE FAKE, A SHOE IS THE EXACT SAME THING AS A PURSE, YOU CAN TOTALLY USE IT TO CARRY YOUR MONEY. If you buy something from this section, I may get an affiliate commission, so it’s a real win-win for you and me, kid! Let’s go shopping.
Foo and Foo is having an up-to-60%-off sale chockablock with stuff from their most recent few collections. The Psycho Fly Boxers that I have gotten at least two other people to buy, all three of us exceedingly happy with them, are more than 100 bucks off. Here are some other picks I don’t already own:
Collina Strada is having a 30% off sale with the code holidaysale, and if I were to get anything it would be these cargo pants.
The Dusen Dusen sale is surprisingly good, now would be a great time to stock up on bath towels or revamp your bed linens or to become the kind of person who always uses TISSUE BOX HOLDERS. No naked tissue boxes in this household! Picks below.
More to come! Drop hot tips on the HR Instagram and let me know what, if anything, you picked up (especially via my SSENSE links so I can give you a kiss, this is my first time using affiliate links and I’m excited about it! I’ll never post anything I wouldn’t already recommend).
