2021 Cyber Week Shopping Guide


Is it just me, or do the Black Friday sales start earlier every year? It’s pretty much a big long Cyber Week at this point. Maybe next year it will be Cyber Month! At any rate, the sales have begun, and I’m rounding up my favorites for your shopping convenience.

SHOPPING TIP: For those checking back often, I will make a note of it beside the sale info when I add new items to the shopping widgets. And since there are new sale additions every day, I’ll keep adding the ones I especially want to feature here at the top of the post.

Top 12 Black Friday Fashion Deals

UPDATED: Sunday 11/28. I updated this list with the ones I feel give you the best cost savings. More of my sale picks with items I own and love are in All The Best Cyber Week Sales To Shop below this section.

#1. Blondo Dagger Waterproof Boots ($50 off) // These waterproof boots are a more refined take on the lug sole trend that is taking over this fall. I love the buckle detail and contrasting trim. These also work well under straighter denim styles. I recommend sizing up half in these; I’m wearing the 8 1/2.

#2. Naadam Boatneck Cashmere Sweater (40% off with BLACKFRIDAY) // I love this sweater so much, I just picked it up in the Mink color when it was 30% off a few weeks ago. Guess I should have waited! I’s so flattering and pretty, and you can dress it up or down. I am wearing the small, and the way it fits the model on the website is very deceiving. My picture is more accurate. (And these Kendra Scott earrings are 30% off!)

#3. Abercrombie Faux Leather Mini Puffer 30% off // I love this jacket for throwing on with casual outfits for date night. It’s chic and warm! I have the black faux leather, but it comes in several other colors and some faux fur options as well!

#4. J.Crew Cashmere Crew Socks (40% with BESTFRIDAY) // These cashmere socks make a luxe gift or treat for yourself. I have them in camel and grey. They are nice for lounging around the house, or for wearing with boots or sneakers in the fall/winter months.

#5. Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie (40% off) // These classic suede stretch booties are weather resistant so you don’t have to sacrifice style when the weather gets messy this winter. They’re also surprisingly warm and very comfortable. I stood in them all night at a concert last weekend. These are true to size; I’m wearing the 8.

#6. Talbots Pointelle Knit Shift Sweater Dress (40% off $89 sale price) // This versatile sweater dress can be worn to work or church or any holiday event where you want to look casual but elevated. It’s on sale for $89.99 and then 40% off that! It also comes in a pretty rust, and it runs true to size. Wearing a small.

#7. Vince V-Neck Wool & Cashmere Sweater (49% off) // I snagged this on sale last year, and I’ve loved it. It’s simple but so pretty, and warm too.

#8. Equipment Madalene Cashmere V-Neck Sweater (25% off) // I wanted to love this sweater. It’s a gorgeous knit, and I love the details, but the v-neck was a little too low for me. it comes in 4 great neutrals, but I’m partial to this cool-toned camel. Maybe it will work for someone else. Also, the jeans and shoes I’m wearing here are on sale at Evereve.

#9. Vince Crop Leggings (25% off) // These are such high quality, classic, flattering pants. They can be dressed up or down, and they’re super comfortable too. FYI, the blouse and shoes I’m wearing here are on sale as well.

#10. Athleta Rainier Reflective Tights + Cozy Karma Asym Pullover + touchscreen friendly reflective glovespom beanie (up to 30% off) // These pieces almost never go on sale, and they’ll sell out before they go on clearance at the end of the season.

#11. Sorel Slimpack Lace Boots 25% off // These are my go-to winter boots. I’ve had them for several years, and they’re still like new. Completely waterproof, incredibly warm, grippy sole, and they fit easily over skinny jeans or leggings. I always wear them for any messy wintertime endeavor — Christmas tree farm, going to and from the gym, and anytime I want to be warm and dry in messy weather.

#12. Sorel Explorer Joan 50% off! // Sizes are limited, but I wanted to include these boots here because it’s such a good price for Sorel! I wore these yesterday to the tree farm, and my feet were toasty warm even though it was fuh-reezing!

Top 5 Black Friday Beauty Deals

#1. Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm (35% off, plus a free gift when you spend $125) // Love this cleansing balm, it is so delicious. Also, their Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads are really good. If you don’t like fragrance, try this limited edition Pro Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm.) Also, this would make a great gift.

#2. Replenix Age Restore Nighttime Therapy (30% off with code BLACK) // I’ve been using this medical grade nighttime moisturizer for quite a while, now, at the recommendation of my cosmetic dermatologist. It’s thick and rich and absorbs nicely into the skin.

#3. Revision Skincare Hydrating Serum (20% off with code BLACK) // She also recommended this hydrating serum, which I use nightly before applying the night cream. This has been a winning combo for my dry skin!

#4. tartelette™ in bloom Amazonian clay palette (30% off with CYBERSZN) // This is a great time to snag my favorite eye shadow palette! I also highly recommend the maneater liquid eyeliner and the lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara to complete the look!

#5. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush (30% off) // This is my favorite blush (I use Naturally Pretty) and I also love their setting powder. I also have and love this brush set. The whole IT Cosmetics website is 30% off right now, with Daily Doorbusters at 50% off!

Okay, now that we’ve hit the highlights! I also wanted to do a full roundup of all the retailer sales I have my eye on. I will keep this list updated as new sales are added and further discounts are taken.

All The Best Cyber Week Sales to Shop

UPDATED SUNDAY 11/28: New additions and updated sales are in BOLD TYPE.

Some of these deals will get better over the weekend and into Monday, but it’s always a gamble to wait. Usually they only go 5% or maybe 10% more, so if you see something you need, it’s probably best to grab it while it’s in stock.

Abercrombie & Fitch // 30% off for A+F Members (free to join). I especially love this sherpa and the faux leather puffer.

American Eagle // 30% off, now including jeans! R loves this store, and I also picked up some of their things for D recently. All are linked below.

  1. Hi JoLynne, would you say the Blondo dagger boots required sizing up? Nordstrom recommends that but I wondered what you thought? I believe you state your foot is narrow but I’d like to know ow for a gift idea…. Thanks for your response.

  2. Wow!!! So much work you put into this post and as you are trying to get ready to host Thanksgiving. Appreciate all you do. I’ll be taking a look closer and hope to stock up on some items. I’ll have to check out if Colleen Rothchilds is also doing her sale. I like their cleansing balm, per your recommendation.
