There's Still Time: Black Friday Sales Worth Shopping!

Black Friday 2017 Sale Picks
This year, I decided to skip out on going to the mall for my Black Friday shopping just because I didn't have the patience or energy to deal with the crowds. Here are some of my picks and what I ordered during the sale. I'm also sharing some of the clothing items that I already own that are also on sale in case you might be interested.

I love shopping at Anthropologie for cute and unique gift ideas. This is also the time when I stock up on my favorite candle scents such as Voluspa and Candlefish as this is the biggest discount they offer on regular priced items. Also, if you've been thinking about trying out something from Sunday Riley, Darphin, Eve Lom, and Malin + Goetz, now is the time to take advantage of this discount on these luxury skincare brands!

Gift Ideas

  • Voluspa candles ($19.60 after discount) - One of my favorite candle brands. These make great gifts for anyone, and they smell so good! I like how they burn clean and the scent lingers in the room even though they're not lit. I've upcycled my empty glass jars as my brush holder in my vanity. Some of my favorite scents are Mokara, Crane Flower, and Panjore Lychee.
  • Weekly 2018 Planner (available in two colors, $17.50 after discount) - What better way to start the new year with a cute planner! This is a great gift for those who might like the idea of bullet journaling but doesn't have the patience to set up the spreads monthly. Love the minimalistic design of this planner.
  • Candlefish candles (available in 4 different scents, $19.60 after discount) - Comes in a cute ceramic container. I personally love the No. 9's light and fresh scent. This also burns nicely and has a clean burn to it. It comes with a brass lid so you can cover it when you're not burning it.
  • Happiness 100-Day Planner (available in 4 different colors, $21 after discount) - Great way to start journaling your thoughts and for positive thinking and self-reflection. 
  • Geode Coaster (available in 8 different colors, $9.80 after discount) - Unique and cute home/room decor pieces 


  • Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser ($31.50 after discount) - Great for oily/combo skin. One of my favorite cleanser that I've already used up as well. Anthropologie has offered the biggest discount I've seen on Sunday Riley products. If you're thinking of trying out this cleanser, now is the time.

ASOS Off the Shoulder Black Dress
Wearing ASOS Off the Shoulder Dress in Size US 0

Dresses for less than $50

  • Off the Shoulder Dress (see image above, $16.80 with code) - This is one of those dresses that can transition from summer to fall by wearing it with OTK boots for fall. I've also worn this tucked in a loose, wide leg pants as a cute top. 
  • Turtleneck Smock Dress ($20.30 with code) - Picked this one up in a size US 0. I have been into just wearing dresses lately these days.
  • Gingham Print Smock Dress with Long Sleeves ($24.50 with code) - I couldn't resist the print! Ordered in a US 2 Petite.
  • adidas Originals T-Shirt Dress with Logo (limited sizing available, $28 with code) - I always get asked where I got my adidas t-shirt. Here's the closest one to it if you're still looking for one, but this one doubles as a dress too! You can easily tuck-in this t-shirt dress on the days you want to pair it with pants this winter for something a little warmer.

Cute bottoms


  • Chunky Cardigan ($33.60 with code) - Love the color and how cozy this cardigan looks.This is very similar to the Free People cardigan that I've seen before at a fraction of the price. 


20% off Everything + free shipping

  • Boy Brow (available in 4 shades, $12.80 after discount) - One of my favorite brow gel. Does a great job of giving you thicker looking brows and grooming them into place without it being stiff.
  • Cloud Paint ($14.40 each after discount, buy two for $24 after discount) - Save more when you buy two! My personal favorites are Puff and Dusk. Puff is a subtle pink cheek color, and Dusk is a nude blush color that can also double for contouring.
  • Milky Jelly Cleanser ($14.40 with discount) - Very light and refreshing facial cleanser. You can either use this dry to take off your makeup or wet to cleanse your face. I love how this cleans my face without stripping any of my natural oil.
  • Balm Dotcom (available in six flavors) - One for my favorite lip balm. I always carry the Mint flavor in my bag when my lips are dry and in need of moisturizing.

Kozha Numbers The Utility Bag
Wearing Kozha Numbers The Utility Bag (on sale)

  • Cult Gaia Small Ark ($102.40 with code) - Finally caved and bought this cult favorite bamboo bag. This was probably the lowest price I've seen for this bag. They also have other colors/styles available on the website. If you've been thinking about getting it for awhile, you might want to check this sale out.
  • Kozha Numbers The Utility Bag ($180 with code) - This is probably one of my used bags especially when I'm running errands. You might have seen me use this often on my Instagram posts. Although this doesn't have any closures on top, I love carrying this around with me when I'm out and about. I always get compliments on how cute this bag is, and it's held up pretty well for everyday use.
  • Just Female Brother Bag ($96.80 with code) - Pretty close dupe for the Chloe Faye Small Shoulder Bag with the fraction of the price.

Stripe Satin Blouse Nordstrom
Wearing JOA Satin Stripe Blouse (on sale)


  • BaubleBar Earrings (orig. $36, on sale $25.20) - I love wearing these earrings to add extra glam to any outfit. These earrings are perfect to dress up your holiday outfit.
  • Luv AJ Lace Link chocker (orig. $75, on sale $35.98) - Ordered in gold. Edgy, 90's inspired choker that will look great for layering.
  • Steve Madden Editor Block Heels (orig. $129.95, on sale $72.77, available in two colors) - I've been seeing white ankle booties pop-up lately, and these are perfect since it has thicker block heels for added support. It has a minimalist silhouette with a zip enclosure on the side. These run a little small, so make sure to order the next half size up when you order. If white is a little too bold and out there for you, it's also available in black which is equally sleek. 


  • JOA Satin Stripe Blouse (orig. $74, on sale $35.52) - Light-weight satin blouse with bell-sleeves detail. Has a cutout in the back. I'm wearin a size XS in the picture above.
  • Lush Payton Cinched Waist Dress (orig. $49, on sale $23.52) - Ordered this in the navy pinstripe in extra small. 
  • Ribbed Choker Dress (orig $35, on sale $16.78, available in 4 colors) - Ordered in a size XS in Charcoal and Red Tanin because I couldn't decide which color I like the most. Again, I've been really building my dress wardrobe lately, and I couldn't resist the choker detail on this dress. I will have to decide which one I'll end up keeping once my order arrives.

  • Levi's 501 Cut-Off Shorts (orig. $69.50, on sale $37.25) - I know that winter is coming, but LA hasn't gotten the memo yet. With these weird warm weather, getting some Levi's cut-off shorts may not be a bad idea at this price. Ordered in size 24.
  • Topshop Jamie Rip High-Waist Skinny Jeans (orig. $75, on sale $45) - One of my favorite Topshop jeans. The fit is perfect and it doesn't need alteration for my petite frame. I did have to go one size up on these because they run a little small. I have this style in two differen colors and style already. I wear a size 25 x 30.

Thread & Supply Pea Coat Winter Coat
Wearing Thread & Supply Peacoat (on sale)


  • BP. Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan (orig. $49, on sale $25.52, available in five different colors) - I already own the grey version of this one during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and decided to pick up the oatmeal color because I love the length of the cardigan. It's a light-weight cardigan which makes a great cover-up or layer under a coat. I ordered this again in a size XXS for a better fit. I've also washed this cardigan and thrown it in the dryer, and didn't experience any shrinking.
  • Free People Drapey Jacket (orig. $168, on sale $80.64) - Great buy if you're looking for a faux leather jacket with a slouchy fit. It comes with a hood.

  • Thread & Supply Double Breasted Peacoat (orig. $58, on sale $30.32, available in 8 colors) - I got mine last year, and I'm glad that this is part of the sale. Classic style peacoat with a great price point. See image above for the fit. I'm wearing a size XS, and it still has room for layering. The sleeves are also just the perfect length for me.
  • J.Crew Leopard Coat (40% off) - I checked the J.Crew website, and this coat is excluded from the discount. But Nordstrom is offering 40% off on this leopard coat in case you are interested.

  • Chloe Small Faye Leather Shoulder Bag ($1,192) - This is probably my favorite buy for Black Friday since I have been looking into getting a Chloe Small Faye bag. This shoulder bag is all leather (doesn't have the suede flap) which I think is better for everyday use. This item sold out quickly, and I'm glad I was able to place my order before it did. Although I'm still waiting for the shipping confirmation that it's heading my way. So, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for now. I did get an e-mail notification already that my $75 gift card has shipped.

  1. Get a can of suede cleaner at a shoe store. It comes in an aerosol can and sprays on like a foam. Let it sit on a few minutes. The cap on the can like I get has a stiff plastic bristle brush, use that to scrub and let them air dry overnight. Use some protectant when youre done, it makes a big difference! I do this on my sons shoes all the time, he wears the skater type shoes and this makes 'em look like new. Learn more:
