Black Friday Wish List + Pre-Black Friday Sales!!

Black Friday Wish List + Pre-Black Friday Sales!!

Maggie a la Mode - Black Friday Wish List Marc Jacobs Shutter Camera Crossbody Bag

Black Friday has always been one of my favorite days of the year. It follows a great holiday where I spend the entire day with my family, you get some great deals, and it was always a day for my mom, my sisters, and I to "bond" while we shopped. This year we are actually spending the holiday apart, so I will be shopping in my PJs, but I still have a plan! I have a few key items that I will be searching for on sale and snatching up right away, and then some secondary items that I'll peruse through later on. If an item doesn't go on sale, I'll just check back on Monday or during the Christmas sales - the best part is that some stores are going on sale now, so I can snatch them up early! I listed my top items below, and below that is a further list of items that I'm hoping go on sale this Friday! What's on your list?? Which stores will you be shopping at first (online or in-store)?

Marc Jacobs Editor Tote

I have been on the search for a great everyday bag that I can bring with me to work, and I think I just found it. I love how many compartments this bag has and how roomy they are! I feel like I could carry my life around in this thing. However, with how much it carries, it still looks rather small! Yes, it's still a tote, but it doesn't overwhelm my frame. It comes in a few classic colors (like black, cognac, and red), but I definitely need the black. It's timeless and hides wear a little better, in my opinion. I'm just waiting for a sale (and crossing my fingers it'll be this one)!

Topshop Jamie Embroidered Jeans

I've been wanting to jump on the embroidered jean trend for a while, and I've tried on 3 different ones so far but none have fit just right. I've heard great things about Topshop's Jamie fit, so I figured it's worth a try! I love that they're already under $100, so if they go on sale they'll be an even better price. If you have a good embroidered skinny jean suggestion, leave it in a comment below or message me!

Clare V. Petite Alistair Bag

I've been crushing on Clare V. bags for a while now, and hope that this weekend will be the time to snatch one up. I love the look of a circle bag, and this deep green is such a versatile color. The petite is the perfect size, too. She also has a really cute multi-colored braided strap that would be so fun to substitute onto bags to get a different vibe. I'm hoping that there's a percentage off sitewide so I can snatch these babies up!


Madewell Kent Cardigan

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect cozy cardigan, and Madewell usually satisfies. The Kent cardigan has great reviews, and this rust color is seriously gorgeous. I can see it pairing well with almost any outfit from button-up shirts to dresses to lounging in my pajamas. It comes in about a million other colors as well (rose pink, forest green, marled cream, and many more) so I know I'm going to have to snatch it up in a few colors. Madewell already has 25% off for Black Friday, so you can estimate the price already!

J Crew Two-Toned Scarf

The downside to winter fashion is that your coat usually covers it up, so typically your outerwear and footwear are what people see. A scarf is a great way to add some variety and stay warm - they're probably my favorite winter accessory. I love the mix of mint and forest green in this scarf, but they also have light pink, bright pink, and blue variations! The fact that it's cashmere is simply a plus. It will have to get a substantial discount for me to get it, but I'll definitely be keeping my eye out!

Abercrombie Fair Isle Sweater

Fair isle, to me, is the epitome of wintertime. It brings up all my other favorites of the season: hot chocolate, the smell of pine, and fresh fallen snow. So, of course I can't go a winter without! This one from Abercrombie comes in about 6 different varieties and is currently only $40! While I haven't seen it in person, I can't comment on the quality, but my experience with Abercombie sweaters lately has been positive so I'm optimistic!

Madewell Black Denim Shirtdress

I'm a big lover of shirtdresses lately, and the idea of a black denim one intrigues me. I might even have to get the same striped turtleneck as the model because I'm really loving that look! I wear my black denim jeans more often than my blue denim jeans, so I figure it's a no-brainer getting a black denim dress. 

Jeffrey Campbell Charlin Bow Flats

I wouldn't consider myself a girly girl, and I typically don't gravitate toward bows or pink, but that's exactly what is happening with these shoes. They're definitely reminiscent of designer styles, so they look more expensive than they are. They would go well with jeans and dresses alike, and it's just a fact that blush pink goes with everything. I definitely just talked myself into 100% needing these shoes haha.
