Hello, I don’t usually post on Thursdays but I wanted to alert you to some great offers from Finery and Hush. This is not a sponsored post by the way, I just don’t want you to miss out. I’ve also listed the brands that have gone live early with their Black Friday offers at the bottom of this post with the links and codes that you need to redeem the offer, I’ll continue to update it throughout the day. But before I go on – Happy Thanksgiving to everyone reading in America from your friends at Midlifechic!

Finery offers

Finery has the best deal, offering a pre Black Friday 30% off everything, even clearance with code FRIDAY30. This offer is live until midnight on Sunday 27th November. Some of Finery’s headline items are very fashion forward but there are always pieces that make my heart beat faster. These would be my top 6 picks:

The Eve off shoulder velvet top

Great worn with jeans and heels for a night out. The shoulders and clavicles are always a great feature to emphasise. Mine arrived last night (I didn’t want to risk it going out of stock when the sale started) and I can confirm it’s fantastic, it sparks joy and I now want to wear it to every event I have. Lovely quality, a beautful colour and surprisingly forgiving – if in doubt about sizes, size up.

Great offers from Finery and Hush

Eve velvet top

The Elmworth Boot

On trend but also comfortable. I can personally recommend the blue and the brown as I wear them both all the time. I found the blue a really good colour for wet summer days too and I think the snake with its lighter tones would be equally versatile.

L-R: snake; chocolate; blue

The Belshaw skirt

I wore this in the mulberry colourway in this post. It’s a beautifully made skirt and looks as good with a polo neck and boots as it does dressed up for evenings.

The Vernon leather jacket

Navy is more flattering than the usual black biker jacket. One of Finery’s collection of “Forever Pieces,” if ever there was a good time to invest in this it’s now – a generous Christmas present perhaps?

The Bidder sweatshirt

Another one of the “Forever Pieces” this is a great sweatshirt to wear with jeans. The rose gold zip detail is a contrasting feature.

The Lufton midi skirt

I wore this in a recent post as an alternative to classic black tie but I will also be wearing it with a polo neck and boots when we go out on Christmas Eve.

Hush offers

Hush are starting a Christmas shopping weekend with 25% off 25 items until Monday. My ‘six of the best’ would be:

Thea trousers

These have a subtle sheen and would be great going out trousers. They have an elasticated waist making them especially good for Christmas dining.

Great offers from Finery and Hush

Thea trousers

Emma Jumpsuit

Hugely versatile for work or weekend, the 25% off covers the burgundy too.

Emma jumpsuit

Star pyjamas

The perfect outfit for Boxing Day in my book. The offer is available on the full pyjama set.


Star pyjamas

Harley jeans

These have great reviews and are a bit more street than classic grey jeans. They’re a great option for a Christmas night out with some sparkly shoes.

I hope that’s given you a shortcut. The offers are available over the weekend but stock on quite a few items is low so don’t leave it too late.

International Delivery

Apologies for not including this in the last couple of posts, there have just been too many products and retailers to list. However here are Finery’s international shipping details and here are Hush’s international shipping details.

Back again soon!
