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.

You got some great stuff! Love that tartan shirt and the sequin skirt. I wish I had the patience to hold onto my birthday money for major sales like now!
It looks like you found some great pieces. I really love that American Eagle coat!
You're so brave! I chickened out this year and went online instead. Great finds! Especially love the military jacket. Can't wait to see what you're going to pair it up with!

Wow! Love all of these pieces especially the plaid! http://www.fashionifancy.com
Love the contrast sleeve blazer! I think it's a pretty good bargain. Most gap blazers are over $50.

love your forever 21 and AE finds… you could NEVER tell that those are from those stores! i actually forgot about american eagle- thanks for the reminder!
Great buys! I've been loving that Limited sweater as well 🙂
loving the military jacket
An Nicole says
I've been trying to find a military jacket like that. How does the leather on the arms look in person?
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! 🙂
Cute buys! Loving the AE Jacket!
Olivia Moone says
Super cute finds!! I wish I would have done more shopping!
Frank Vinyl says

It's fun to see these pieces first and then being on the lookout for how you style them!
Kate Greer says
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.
congratulations! you did well! can't wait to see how you style the black sequined skirt. i spotted that one at ny and company
