The Black Friday Phenomenon

Black Friday is a blessed thing. Ignoring the mania and sometimes-scary happenings that come out of the in-store sales in America, the Black Friday savings phenomena has spread to our favourite domain: the online shopping world. And there are few domains we love more than Pinup Girl Clothing's.

The PUG Black Friday sale this year is 30% off sitewide, even in the sales section, with no code needed. Given that they've just added dozens of new items to the sale section at a super steep reduced price--$142 Jenny dresses for $50 or less--this is practically thievery it's such a good deal. The sale section will save you the biggest bucks, but the 30% off on the rest of the site is definitely a great way to finally get the items that have been sitting in your basket for ages while you try to wait out the arrival of a great deal.

When it comes to shopping PUG it's important you check the size charts of each item you're buying to make sure you purchase the right size. Take your measurements now and write them down to be left beside your computer ready for quick reference if you don't already know them by heart.

PUG offers flat rate $28 international shipping, so if you have a local friend who also wants to buy something you can team up together to place the order as one and split the shipping costs between the two of you. Don't forget, though, that customers outside the US will be charged import fees, varying by country, once your order arrives. UK customers receive a letter from Fedex after delivery stating your outstanding customs import fees, and you can pay online, over the phone or by post. If you're sharing an order with a friend don't forget to split this customs charge at the appropriate percentage according to your order so that no one gets left out of pocket and in distress. Shop fairly ladies!

The sale starts at 12.00am 28th November PST, which is 8am GMT, so be prepared to get up early and battle it out at the online checkout. It will be worth it for the savings.

Now, if all the talk of customs and shipping puts you off, here are few of our favourite UK based vintage reproduction clothing stores and boutiques who are participating in Black Friday!
Collectif ( Offering 20% across the range, instore and online with the code BF20. However, before you ask, the beloved and much sought after Pearl coat is not included. You can start crying now. Ends 23:59 GMT Monday 1st December.

Vivien of Holloway ( Offering 24% for 24 hours! Clever! Use the code IG24VOH until midnight GMT on Friday 28th November.

Audrey Stars Boutique ( Offering 20% off of the whole range including Collectif and Hell Bunny with the code FILLYABOOTS until midnight GMT Sunday 30th November.

Tara Starlet ( Offering 40% off of all their Party Dresses until midnight GMT on Friday 28th November using the code TGIF.

Most important of all: don't buy all the dresses in our sizes. We British Belles need to get our hands on more PUG if we're going to give you all tips on how to be your sassiest and chicest pinup selves.

Happy Shopping, Beauties!

Love and kisses,
