Black Friday Purchases

If you were following me on Twitter & Instagram, you know that I (along with my best friend) chose to brave the crowds on Black Friday, starting at midnight when the mall opened.  While I didn't find the big ticket items I was searching for (flat riding boots & a leather moto jacket), I did still walk away with some great deals.  Since I had some birthday money to spend, I decided to splurge on a few items I've been wanting for a while (like the plaid shirt and cargo jacket).  Also, this contrast sleeve blazer wasn't on sale, but was so similar to the J. Crew version I'd been stalking...plus the fit/quality was perfect & I know I can wear it well into the spring, so I didn't mind the price.  

LOFT Knit Drape Open-Front Jacket - $32.49 (50% off - sold out online; check your local store)
J. Crew Perfect Shirt in Black Watch - $51.00 (25% off using code COLOR25)
NY & Company Sequin-Trim Wrap Skirt - $28.47 (50% off in store)
The Limited Striped Cable Sweater - $27.45 (50% off in store)
American Eagle Military Jacket - $44.97  (50% off in store)

loving the military jacket

An Nicole said...


I've been trying to find a military jacket like that. How does the leather on the arms look in person?

Kimberly said...

An Nicole, the faux leather looks (& feels) quite real in person. The jacket as a whole has a nice weight to it for this colder weather...definitely recommend! :)

Giovanna said...

Olivia Moone said...

It's fun to see these pieces first and then being on the lookout for how you style them!

Love the cardigan! I got one too on cyber monday - I wasn't brave enough for the crowds on black friday. I much prefer the comfort of my couch.


Elizabeth said...
