I read Pretty Tall Style’s Piperlime Black Friday Haul and thought I should do my own. Actually, I was already thinking about doing one, but she gave me the kick in the pants I needed to actually do it. So thanks, Tanasha!
I really appreciated how a lot of retailers moved their sales online for Black Friday. It shows a grasp of the times and consumer’s shopping behavior. But it seems I may have jumped the gun by buying online on Friday because I would have gotten a deeper discount if I had waited until Monday. But then my size would have been sold out so…oh well. C’est la vie.
I started out my online shopping excursion at Old Navy. They had 15% off online plus they offer free shipping. Until 12/1, you can get 30% if you have an Old Navy, Banana Republic or Gap card. And if you don’t have a card, you can still get 20% off.
I saw this sweater in a another color on a co-worker that week before and I had to get it. I got the sweater in the colors Green Goddess and Coral Tropics. This is a really nice sweater. It is soft and very comfortable. The sleeves are not quite long enough but that’s fine, I just scrunch them like pictured. I ordered it in a size L and it fits perfectly. Old Navy has this sweater in various colors and patterns (other than the ones above) in sizes XS-XXL . I am thinking about getting the Navy polka dot one as well.
I also got this Cable Knit sweater in Orange (they are sold out of that color but they have many others.) I ordered a Tall Large. I love how it is long in the sleeves and torso but the only drawback is that it is a little too big, mostly in the chest, which causes there to be too much fabric in the armpits. Otherwise, I like it.
Next stop: ASOS. ASOS still has 30% off for their Cyber Monday sale. And they also offer free shipping.
This dress hits right at my knee and the sleeves hit right at my wrist. It is made of a pretty thick material so I wasn’t too cold wearing this in the frigid East Coast weather. It looks great with black leggings and boots. It also comes in black and sizes run from 2-14.
I took a look back at my haul and I realize I have a serious problem; I am addicted to polka dots. I might have to join Polka Dot Lovers Anonymous.
Anyway, this dress is on sale and currently has limited sizes left in both colors (cream and pink). It has a cutout back which I didn’t realize until after I bought it, but it’s not a problem. It is made of a soft stretch cotton and hits below my knee. To be appropriate for the winter weather, I would wear this dress with a blazer, tights and boots.
So how do you like my haul? Did you score any big finds on Black Friday/Cyber Monday? Please feel free to share below!
Until next time,
