Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Tag Archives: black friday

The biggest shopping day of the year is here again! Hope you all have fun Thanksgiving plans, I’m lucky enough to have my friend, Alicia, flying in from Seattle to spend the holiday with me. I’m going to cook, and we are going to go see White Christmas at the theatre and check out Zoo Lights! Very excited.

The 50% off sale at Ann Taylor is when I stock up on my favorite Mila pumps

You can get this gorgeous red pair for just $40

And I needed to replace my black suede pumps so picked these up

I’m also dying to try these over the knee boots


This Eddie Bauer Parka is unfortunately not on sale, but it is gorgeous so I shelled out for it. I live in Chicago so feel I can justify the cost!

I also recommend stocking up on my favorite American Eagle jeans at 40% off

These Old Navy ponte pixie pants are my new favorite work pants and only $25 with 50% off

Nordstrom is of course a favorite place to shop for myself and for gifts:

Kendra Scott Tassel Necklace $96

Kate Spade Mini Sparkle Studs $22.40

Kate Spade Rock Candy Studs $33.60

Kate Spade Initial Pendant $40.60 (what a great gift! Hint hint Mom)

Kate Spade Bow Muffler Scarf $54.60 (so cute!)

Make and Model Graphic Pajamas $49.00

Daphne Set of 4 wine glasses $24

Nordstrom doesn’t have their items marked down yet, but check tomorrow to see what else might be on sale!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!


It’s the most wonderful sales of the year!! (to the tune of It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the year obviously). Look at me getting 2 posts out in one week : )

A lot of stores have already started their Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales – yay! I’m taking a carry-on to Cali, that is stuffed to the gills, so all of my shopping will be done online this year and shipped conveniently right to me. Will be spending Friday binge watching the new Girlmore Girl’s special instead of fighting crowds I think : )

I’ve included some items that will make great affordable gifts as well – trying not to do ALL the shopping for myself!

Loft is having 40% off now, might want to see if that goes up to 50%, it usually does. Ann Taylor doesn’t have everything on sale yet, but I think 50% off is coming so included a few items from there. Old Navy is 50% off right now which I’m guessing is where they will stay. J. Crew’s price point is a little high for me but they are having 40% off which is a great deal for them if you want to take a look. Nordstrom has a few great gift ideas on sale as well I’ve included.
