I imagine your Thanksgiving Day festivities have died down and you’re now assuming the comatose position on the couch post-meal. And what better time to indulge in a little retail therapy?! Or better yet, get a head start on your gift list.

It’s no secret the sales pop up earlier and earlier with every passing year, but if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em (otherwise you’ll end up missing out all together 😉).

I’ll be updating this post periodically as new sales roll in, so if you requested to see something in particular and you don’t see it here, I haven’t forgotten about you! The sales just haven’t gone live yet. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back! And as usual, if there’s anything in particular you’re shopping for or if you have any questions for me, let me know down in the comments or shoot me an email.

I’ve rounded up the items I have and love, along with my handpicked favorites from each store down below! It also doesn’t hurt to mention that nearly everyone and their brother is offering free shipping right now.

Laptop, check. Wish list, check. Nice list, check. Beverage of choice, check. The best Black Friday sales to shop – check, check, and check – let’s get to it!

First things first, I wanted to highlight a few things I own that are on major sale right now. The prices are reflective of the price after using the discount code which can either be found on the site or down below.velvet holiday dressJ. Crew Velvet Dress ($71) – My love for a drop-waist dress knows no end and this blue velvet number does not disappoint. It’ the perfect dress to take you through holiday party season. Also, I’m totally on board with the sheer turtleneck layering trend. Unfortunately, my lace up heels are last season, but this pair of bow heels are equally as great!j. crew coatJ. Crew Stadium Parka ($219) – I’m going on my third season with this coat and have yet to find anything I love more. I have a size 2 and it’s roomy enough to wear several layers underneath which I definitely need living in Chicago! If you live somewhere where the weather is not quite as dramatic, you could probably get away with sizing down for a tighter look/feel. (Side note: I’ve been wearing this jacket nearly everyday. It’s the best layer for extra insulation! It also comes in a shorter version if you’re into that!)the best workout tights J. Crew Field Jacket ($89) – I reached for this jacket all spring long and then was back at it again this fall. It’s an easy piece to throw on and go! I have a size small, but could probably get away sizing down to an extra small.

Nike Training Tights ($68) – Nike is offering an extra 25% off sale items right now, which includes a ton of their workout tights! I’ve had this pair for close to a year now and they’re one of my favorite pairs to workout in! They come in several colors and hold up incredibly well in the wash. They run small, so keep that in mind when you’re ordering. I have a size medium and I’m usually a small. I also love that Nike offers sizes to fit all different types of bodies!the best black heelsJ. Crew Factory Ruffle-Hem Dress ($55) – I picked this dress up in white last year from J. Crew and they ended up bringing it back in green at J. Crew Factory this season! Dress it up with these embellished heels (on sale for $79) and you’ve got the perfect holiday look!)styled bar cartBar Cart ($91) – Also comes in rose gold and glass! (on sale for $72)

Most of the items in my first two gift guides are on sale (see them here and here), along with everything in my holiday style picks round-up, so if you’re looking for gift ideas, check there first! novelty gift ideasgift guide for the social (media) butterflyHoliday outfit ideas

ATHLETA20% off using code BLISS

I have these tights, these tights, and this pair (which offer a little something extra to just plain black tights!). I’ve also got this top in two colors (spring mint and chilled sangria!), and this jacket, which I raved about above!


I’ve got a gift card burning a hole in my pocket and have been dying to try Sunday Riley’s Good Genes treatment (comes in smaller size here) and these eye gels. I’ve also heard great things about the ultra clarifying oil. Anthro carries the best barware and accessories – everything is really unique, especially in terms of color! Also, how cute are these frenchie and dachshund cheese boards?! Last thing to note here, their card selection. It’s always nice to have a few on hand for party invites, thank yous, birthdays, etc!


I can’t get enough of their shoe selection this year. Everything is too good! High on my list are these booties, these embellished heels, and these tweed flats.
