Black Friday Buys

I didn't really go crazy with Black Friday shopping or anything -- to be honest, I think the majority of the reason I go is just because I love the excitement of it. I went later in the day too, when the door busters were all over and the crowds had mostly died down. Regardless, I did manage to snag a couple of deals. I got the pink and black shirt and black skirt for only $25 (total!!) at Charlotte Russe, and the heart cardigan was $25 at Forever 21. It wasn't on sale, but it was too cute to resist. 

Aldo had 50% off sale items. I originally had gone to the physical store, but it was packed and decided I'd just order what I liked online instead since I already know how their shoes fit me. I need flats -- as much as I love heels, I realized I wear flats so much that the few pairs that I do own get worn out too quickly and I have to replace them every couple months. I snagged four pairs at Aldo for only about $80! I'm still waiting on the second two pairs to come in the mail though. 

I was so excited that this lavender blazer from H&M was on sale. I scoped it out a few weeks ago, but passed it over at $30 even though it was originally $49.99. On Black Friday I was excited to see they had dropped the price even more down to $20. I'm a sucker for pastels. 

Honestly nothing that I picked up at Sephora was on sale, it just wasn't terribly crowded and I decided I could use some new makeup. I got Dr. Jart+ BB cream, as I've been dying to try some beauty balms for a while. I'm really liking it so far, I think I'll post a review soon! I love the Too Faced lipliner I got, it makes my lipstick stay on so much longer. I'm still on the fence about my Stila eyeliner, it's good for very fine lines but thicker lines don't go on as smoothly as I'd like. The Clinique moisturizer was a reward from my amassed Beauty Points. I've never actually tried any Clinique products, and I'm loving it so far, I may actually end up purchasing it! 

Did you end up going shopping on Black Friday? What did you get? Tell me in the comments!


  1. Ooh, that black cardigan with the hearts is cuuute! You picked up some awesome stuff, and that deal at Aldo was a steal! :D I got some stuff at Crossroads, but ended up returning a couple items, and I went to World Market to check out accessories but had shopper's anxiety. I kept asking myself, "Do I want this because it's cheap? Am I actually going to use it?" AH!


  2. Hehe, IMO you went pretty much crazy ;D. Nice stuff :D.
    I bought just one bag (a bat shaped one from ModCloth ;D)

    1. Haha, I guess it's a matter of perspective! Actually now that I'm looking at what I bought, I did get quite a bit.

      I bought some stuff from the Modcloth sale too! Still waiting for them to come in the mail~

  3. That lavender blazer is adorable! I didn't really plan on buying anything on Black Friday, but I wound up getting a few work things from The Limited's online sale and a few things from ModCloth. :)

  4. Love the black cardigan. Its way cute:) you have a lovely blog:) let me know if you Wang to follow each other:) here is my link-

  5. Hi, love your style! I also bought the lavender blazer from h&m, and was wondering how would you style this item? -Michelle, Miami FL

    1. Thank you!

      You know, I've been struggling with styling it myself. I can see it going two routes, either paid with a bit of an edgier tight-fitting black dress to tone down the sweetness a little bit, or throwing caution to the wind and wearing it with something very confectionery like a pink chiffon dress.

      I think you may have given me inspiration for a new post, thank you!
