Happy holidays and greetings from Philly where I’m visiting my family until Thanksgiving day. I feel fortunate that I got to spend time with my family this year and I’ll also have time to see my husband’s family. I’ll be flying back to be with his family on Thanksgiving and couldn’t believe that I managed to score a great price on a last minute flight back to Boston.
Below are the latest sales in anticipation of Black Friday and Cyber Monday which is right around the corner. I’ll update this page or post another update as some of these sales are switched out if they haven’t already been published.
Amazon – Shop their Black Friday deals here. Take 30% off clothing, shoes, watches, jewelry and more. Use code 30BLACKFRI at checkout for a discount on eligible items sold and shipped by amazon.com. I have Amazon Prime through my friend and it’s been so convenient (maybe too convenient) to order things and have them arrive quickly within a day or two. I have major commitment issues when it comes to a watch so I don’t own one (my Toy watch from a few years ago broke) but I’ve been looking at this Skagen watch (34mm) and a similar one from Nordstrom Rack (28mm). Not related to Amazon but I’ve also been looking at this drive mini watch (23.5mm) by Tous. My dream watch the Cartier Santos Galbeé.
Ann Taylor – Get 50% off EVERYTHING until 1PM. Use code CELEBRATE. Valid online and in store. Shop my sales picks here:
I liked this windowpane camp shirt but I wish they also offered it in white with black grid lines. Size XS regular fits me pretty well (if I had to be picky about sizing then I’d want to try on size XXS too for comparison). I passed on this blouse since I prefer light blouses over dark blouses.
Anthropologie – Get 25% off each and every item. Valid in stores and online. use code SHOPTOIT. Sale ends today 11/27.
Banana Republic – Get 50% off sweaters and 40% off the rest of your purchase. Use code BRFRIDAY. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends 11/27 11:59PM ET. I’ve been getting a lot of use out of my Cece plaid scarf (review here) and gingko leaf necklace. I also love and would recommend this lace-front blouse (see it on me here, review of size XSP here). Shop my sales picks here:

Henri Bendel – Get up to 30% off plus free shipping on all orders. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends tonight 11/25. I’ve been lusting after this uptown mini satchel but of course the lizard print and solid black color I wanted sold out with the gifting season fast approaching. This mini ring box is a cute stocking stuffer for bow lovers.

Sale ends tonight 11/29 at 11:59PM ET. I love J.crew pocket umbrellas and I own a few of them. I still love my Chateau parka that I bought last year (review here). I want this pajama set but I’ll probably get the LOFT version here, here and here instead as long as my size doesn’t sell out. I recently tried on the popular lady day coat in 2 regular and it fit me everywhere except the length was too long. If I don’t want to alter the length which is very expensive for such a thick coat then I probably need it in 4 petite but I’m worried that the sleeves will be too short.
J.Crew Factory – Get 50% off every single thing (prices as marked online) plus free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Use code SHIPGIFTS. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends tonight 11/29 at 11:59PM ET. This vail parka (review of size 0 regular in this post) is a great option if you’ve been eyeing the J.Crew version (own it, review of size 00 regular here) which is still excluded from their promotion. You may also want to check out this similar dupe by Vince Camuto.
Kate Spade – Enjoy up to 75% off with their surprise sale plus get free shipping when you spend $175 or more. All sales final. Sale ends 11/28 at 11:59AM ET. I also keep an eye on their sale section for mark downs.

I wanted this scallop lace dress the moment I saw it online since it has sleeves. Below I’m wearing my old lace dress from 2013 on the left and this year’s version with sleeves on right.
I originally tried on the scallop lace dress in 2 regular in stores (refer to the below picture) and realized I would need to stick with regular missy sizing so that the dress would sit at my natural waist. Petite sizing would be too high and more of an uncomfortable empire waist on me. Size 00 regular has a 28″ waist and fits me comfortably with room to eat a meal. Luckily the lace sleeves were also not tight and skimmed my arms. Size 2 regular on the other hand was a few inches too wide all over. I’d say this dress runs about one size larger. I’m on the fence about returning it since I don’t love the lace they used as much as I thought I would. On the other hand, it’s a great dress to have for formal events but I have so many clothes that I save for a rainy day and never wear or barely wear. I have longer arms (I usually take 23-24″ sleeves) so if you’re petite and go with the missy sizing for the waist placement then the sleeves may be more bracelet length on you.
LOFT Scallop Lace Dress, size 2 regular
LOFT Starry Long Rib Trim Tank, size XS regular
I love the tiny stars on this starry rib trim tank and I hope petite sizes will be available soon/later. The color is light blue in person but it comes across as white in their online stock image. I tried on size XS regular which fits like a basketball jersey length so I’m pretty sure I need this in XXSP since it runs really long and oversize in regular missy.
I want all of the cute new pajama sets from LOFT (available in polka dots, starry print and gingham print) but I wish they were available in petites. Hopefully size XXS won’t sell out in at least one of the styles but I’m holding out for 50% off or better. I can’t see myself paying a lot for clothes that I’ll only wear at home but they would make cute presents. The starry print (pictured above) is grey and not off white as pictured in their online stock image. See the gingham version on Kate.

Nordstrom Rack – Get 30% off clearance items. Nordstrom Rack always has great deals and these Ivanka Trump Lissa gold cutout flats are super cute. This Skagen watch is gorgeous and perfect for every day wear. This Harlowe & Graham slub textured jacket is a great layering option (see my review here). I own and love these Cole Haan Air Monica Flats in two colors (see the nude color on me here in this post).

Tory Burch – Get 30% off $250+. Use code THANKS. Sale ends 12/1 at 2:59AM ET. I’ve been eyeing the York small buckle bag for forever but it looks like it’s excluded from this sale. I recently bought my mom the zip top city tote from Coach Outlet for $129 (similar here). I really like the size and quality and may get another one for myself during their next online sale.
