Ok…you come to this site for shopping wisdom. And, not to worry, I’ve got your holiday sale list at the ready. However, I must admit that my heart wasn’t in the “Black Friday” shopping game as it usually is. First, “Friday” has seemed to creep into the entire week of Thanksgiving, with deals beginning as early as last weekend. And second, there is now an expectation that everything will be discounted. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bargain as much as the next person, but this does seem to diminish the thrill of the hunt a bit for me. What can I say, I’m a shopping lifer, the hunt is as much of the thrill as the styling.
I digress. Without further ado, allow me you to introduce the best of the best:
Madewell (25% off their entire site with code DONTSTRESS). I came for the detailed blouses, and left with a pair of velvet Mary Janes and metallic trousers in my cart. Plus, hands down my favorite denim. Truly…they’ve begun to sew pockets made of spanx-like material all the way to the fly (creating a streamlined fit around your middle).
H&M (20% off everything with code 1622). This is my go-to for cute kids clothes (like these leggings my girls live in), and I found a unicorn wall hanging I plan to save for Christmas! Their home decor is also worth a gander. I also ordered a number of puffers.
J.Crew (40% off – you read the right! Code THANKU). I’ve been eyeing this velvet blazer for the hubs (because I have a velvet obsession that is spreading to others!). And why not these velvet pumps while I’m at it? And if you’re in need of party dresses for the fam, look no further than crewcuts for sparkly special occasion wear.
Anthropologie (30% off everything!). Their holiday decor is swoon-worthy (like this peacock ornament). I’m obsessing about socks with everything. And I love my new lavender fur coat (which you can score for a fraction of what I paid!). Finally, a floral kimono can be an easy topper for relaxed hostess attire or can be the perfect gift for a fashion-forward friend or family member.
Nordstrom (extra 20% off select sale items). I just bought these boots in red but the white pair are also in my cart because they are a steal (and amazing)! And these Zella moto leggings are sure to make any fitness lover on your list happy (or motivate you to workout during the holidays). You always “need” a coat this time of year (complete with furry collar). Not-to-mention, these studded sneakers sure would be comfy while you’re out running those holiday errands…just saying. Oh, and if one of my best buds husband is reading, these OTK Stuart Weitzman boots are on Kirsty’s wishlist.
Other sales worth mentioning:
Zara 30% off the entire site!
Pottery Barn 20% off your order with code FCWD-KQZ4-WPZ8
Nordstrom Rack 30% off clearance and free shipping thru Monday
Shopbop with Buy More/Save More you score up to 30% off your order
Birchbox up to 25% off any order
Urban Outfitters Buy One/Get One 50% off!
Tune back in tomorrow. I’m excited to introduce you to some small businesses (some complete with holiday deals) that I’ll be frequenting this holiday season.
Happy Holidays (it’s officially begun). Wishing you a fantastic long weekend enjoyed with family, friends, or simply relaxing. Thanks for reading! ~Jenn
PS. As I wrote this post, I did get more into the sale shopping mood. I ended up buying the metallic trousers and velvet flats from Madewell.
