My top 8 Black Friday favorites
It’s that time of year again! So I want to share my top 8 Black Friday favorites and best shopping strategy.
On Black Friday, or Black Week which it seems to be called these days, we’re supposed to go shopping bananas. And often we do. You can definitely find a few good bargains if you’re smart. But watch out, there will always be places that trick customers into thinking they are buying something on sale, when in reality you’re paying the same price.
My best shopping strategy
I love to shop smart and get the most bang for my buck. By shopping smart I mean buying things I really love and will use a lot, not just buy something for the sake of buying because it says SALE with large tempting letters.
My best shopping strategy? Do your research in advance and put your items on a wishlist. It’s important to know which products you’re interested in buying and to know their full price when they’re not on sale.
To help you out a little, I’ve created a list of my 8 Black Friday favorites, which I know are a good deal! I know so because I already own many of them.
So, let’s get to it, shall we? Happy Shopping!
These are probably my favorite jeans. If you’re looking for the perfect high waisted skinny jeans that show a tiny bit of ankle, then run, don’t walk! These jeans are so flattering on.
They run true to size, perhaps a tiny bit tight, but they are stretchy. Unless you want them super tight, get your normal size.
All Saints makes great leather jackets, and in my eyes, the Balfern model is the ultimate classic biker. The leather is super soft and it comes in a variety of colors.
I don’t own a Balfern biker, but I’ve tried it on several times. It runs a bit small so I recommend sizing up, especially if your plan to wear it with thicker sweaters.
I need to include the shearling jackets from All Saints as well. This is the perfect winter jacket that goes with everything from jeans to midi dresses. A classic investment piece, perfect to get when everything is 30% off!
I don’t own any of these jackets, but I do own an oversized biker from All Saints (not available anymore), and although it’s an oversized style, it doesn’t run that large. Seem like these jackets don’t run that large either, and the models are wearing a size M. My advice is to take your normal size.
How cute are these Givenchy slippers in pink? I know, I know. It’s not exactly the time of year to wear these, but why not grab them on sale now and be prepared for next summer? Also, I use mine in black (with socks!) now as well, when I need to slip into something quickly for taking out the garbage or checking the mailbox.
These run true to size, but for those with narrow feet, they may be a bit wide.
I bought mine from MyTheresa, and from Nov 22-25 they have 30% off with code BLACK30 on selected items, including these in pink.
Another thing I saw on the MyTheresa’s Black Friday sale is this super cool checked coat from Isabel Marant. In my eyes, she is the queen of jackets, coats and ruffle blouses. This oversized wool-blend version has the perfect touch of laidback and chic. So versatile!
I own a few pieces from her, including jackets and coats, and they all run true to size.
I love dainty, classic jewelry. Especially when it comes to rings. This eternity diamond ring in rose gold from EF Collection is incredibly cute. Dainty and tiny, but still very sparkly. Perfect for stacking, but also pretty on its own.
I have this ring in white gold and prefer to wear it on my index finger, so I have it in the largest size (8).
I bought this ring from Shopbop, and their Black Friday campaign is a “Buy More, Save More” from Nov 20-25. Take up to 25% off full-price items and up to 75% off sale items.
Let me start off by saying that, yes, this cardigan is on the pricey side, but oh, so worth it. No wonder I love Mr Mittens called this “The Cardigan”, because it really is!
I got this on another Shopbop sale a few months ago and even then I was a bit hesitant because of the price. But honestly, I have used it so much that cost per wear is starting to get to a decent point. I use it all the time inside and also outside as a jacket. It’s a super chunky knit cardigan made of heavy wool from Peru. It is indeed heavy, but doesn’t feel heavy on and it doesn’t lose its shape. Probably the best cardigan I’ve ever owned.
I have it in cream, but you can also get it in black. It comes in One Size and is supposed to be oversized and roomy.
Last but not least, I need to tell you about another gem I got from Shopbop earlier this fall, the Winona booties from Sam Edelman. These price-friendly booties are my new favorites!
Let’s just say they are the perfect cowboy booties, unless you want to go all in with the cowboy style. I love everything about them, the classy and subtle cowboy look, the heel height and ankle length. They look very flattering on and are super comfy to walk in. True to size as well.
