Early Black Friday Deals: Things I’ve Worn On Sale

Guess what? I’m back with a 2nd post of the day. ‘Tis the season! This is a roundup of early Black Friday sales and deals, particularly the items I’ve featured that are on sale.

I was going to take this on to the end of my Try-On Haul, and then I realized that post was getting waaaaay too long. I think it will be better to have this separate anyway, so I can reference it throughout the next week or so.

There are so many good deals to be had right now, this is by far the best time to shop for upcoming events, holiday gifts, and the long winter fashion season after that.

Early Black Friday Deals: Things I’ve Worn On Sale

I keep coming across things I’ve worn that are newly marked down, or just went on sale, and it’s hard to highlight them all in the Weekend Sale Round- Up in my Saturday newsletter. I thought I’d throw a bunch of my favorites in here, so I can also show you how they look on.

Jenni Kayne is running a 25% off site-wide sale through Monday, 11/27, which is a rare sale for her. Usually it’s 20% off for just a couple of days.

Jenni Kayne Cashmere Fisherman Sweater (S)

Her cashmere fisherman sweater is by far one of my top 3 favorite winter sweaters. The quality is outstanding, and it’s so versatile. I wear it probably once week. I have it in ivory and grey, but I tend to reach for my ivory one the most.

J.Crew has a 25% off sale going on this weekend, but they also have a lot of bigger discounts throughout the site, like my puffer vest for 50% off.

My wool cocoon coat and field sneakers are both 25% off, but I expect them to go lower next weekend.

field sneakers – 25% off (8h)

My plaid Lucky Brand jacket is on sale on the Lucky Brand website and also at Macy’s.

Also, Sheec Socks is doing Save 10% with Code BFCM23. These are the no-show socks I wear in all my sneakers.

AWAY Luggage has all their suitcases 20% off; I don’t remember them ever doing this before! I have The Medium and The Carry-On, but they also offer flex options and a larger carry-on that a lot of people prefer.

There’s so much from the Bloomingdale’s Sale – Take $25 off every $100 + 15% off with EXTRA15. Most of this outfit is on sale, either there or somewhere else. I absolutely love these brown velvet flares.

And my Equipment cashmere v-neck, another one of my top 3 favorite winter sweaters, is included in this sale. This sweater has such pretty details, but it’s still a fairly classic v-neck style, so you can layer it so many ways.

Equipment Madalene Cashmere V-Neck – $25 off every $100 + 15% off (S)

It’s 100% cashmere, and very soft, but it does pill more easily than some of my other sweaters. I still love it, though; I just have to take my sweater shaver to it more often.

I also have this one in two colors, and while I really try not to buy duplicates, I have to say, I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of both of these.

My Rails Geneva Button Front Cardigan is also included. (This one finalizes my top 3!)

And almost all of my PAIGE and AG jeans are on sale at Bloomies. I’ve featured most of them at some point already in this post, but for a recap:

PAIGE Laurel Canyon Welt // PAIGE Gemma // PAIGE Anessa

PAIGE Laurel Canyon // PAIGE Claudine // AG Mari

My Vince Hilda Booties are marked 30% off, plus you get to layer the $25 off every $100 on top of that, AND the extra 15% off!

These are the most luxe boots I own. The leather is like butter, and the streamlined shape is so flattering. I sized up half in these, to an 8 1/2.

And my P448 Monza Sneakers are part of the sale, as well. I take these in my regular 39, but they’re a bit roomy in the toe. You might be able to size down, if in between.

P448 Monza – $75 off + 15% off

Nordstrom Black Friday Deals

Nordstrom has tons of markdowns and Black Friday Deals. My Halogen embellished button sweater just went on sale.

Both of my black Marc Fisher booties are included. They’re quite similar, but I wear the Ulani for dressier looks.

Talbots is doing 40% off full-price sweaters, shoes, and accessories right now, but I do expect to see a bigger site-wide from them over Black Friday weekend. They also have an extra 50% off all markdowns. Everything I’m wearing below is on sale.

  1. Hi Jo-Lynne –
    Thanks for putting this together – super helpful! I was wondering about the Jenni Kayne sweaters – specifically the cotton ones. I see everything (even the cotton) has “dry clean only” for care instructions. Do you think that’s really necessary or would delicate-cycle washing and flat-drying suffice? I’d love to get one, but dry cleaning is a deal breaker for me…too high maintenance.

    1. I have the cotton fisherman ( I can’t do wool or cashmere) and always wash on delicate cycle/cold and lay flat to dry. No issues at all. I can’t speak for the cashmere.

  2. So much great content today! I am putting that Goyard tote from a couple of your pics on my long-term wishlist. I travel a lot and it seems like it would be great for the plane.

  3. Great post and I love the double post! Question: when you buy pointed toe booties/boots/shoes, do you go up 1/2 size or a full size? I can never get the sizing right on that type of shoe.
