Black Friday Buys:

River Island Quilted Clip Purse from ASOS  – sadly the Black Friday discount code didn’t apply for Canadian orders – but I went ahead with the purchase since this wallet is on sale.

Taupe Bubble Necklace – I have 3 Bubble necklaces already (Turquoise & Red ones from H&M and  Green one from eBay) – since I get a LOT of wear out of them, I thought it was worth getting another one (I purchased mine from Ily Couture for $19 shipped).

Hunter Original Gloss Rainboots in Bitter Chocolate – I consider these boots to be classics – and knew I wanted a pair some day. When they showed up on Beyond the Rack for $99, I thought it would be a great time to buy!

Garage Denim & Gingham shirts – Garage had 40% off their ENTIRE site…since their clothes are such staples for me, I happily stocked up. On sale, the $39 jeans were priced at $23, and some even came down to $13! Their sale started earlier in the week so I received my items by Friday.

Did you purchase anything during Black Friday or were you able to resist the sales?

    Beautiful things! I love the outfit you wore to the Express event. That blouse is perfection on you! Express has some lovely clothing right now. I got a coupon in the mail a few days ago and am dying to use it! They have the prettiest outerwear at the moment. I also love the bubble necklace. I still can't get enough of those!

      Noelle – I thought I should stop at 3 bubble necklaces – but they're really so versatile – and I only had bright colors – so I'm so excited to get one more, as I know I'll definitely wear it 🙂

    Great buys!! I really love the clutch and necklace (I still can't bring myself to wear big statement necklaces. They just don't look right on me). I so wish we lived closer to each other. I need a good shopping buddy.

      We need to have a massive Florida shopping trip some day 🙂 It took me a while to get used to wearing statement necklaces (both in terms of weight and overall look)…in my 20s I only liked delicate & dainty jewelry. Now, I always like having something around my neck – either a scarf or a necklace – funny, huh?

      I think I'm just too claustrophobic, lol. I don't even like shirts with a crew neck. I did buy a super cute clunky necklace at the flea market a few months ago but have yet to wear it. I'll have to post you a pic.
