|Above: Exploring the streets of NYC.|
Happy Thanksgiving; I hope yours was wonderful! This week, we’ve been enjoying the wonders of NYC (full recap post soon) and even though I am but a stone’s throw away from some of the best shopping in the world, I will also be indulging in some online orders to streamline the process.
the past few days, the web has been abuzz with a plethora of promotions
dedicated to the ineffable Black Friday shopping extravaganza; some have even already begun!
Although some of us embrace the thrill of traditional shopping on the
27th–dense crowds and long lines can be marginally invigorating when
coupled with the thrill of the hunt–there is a certain sense of peace
in choosing one’s spoils from the comfort of a computer, ideally with a
frothy latte at arm’s reach.
assist in savvy navigation of the sales, I have compiled a list of my
favorite retailers, replete with discount code details (where applicable) and my curated
DEPARTMENT STORES (Beauty + Fashion)
- Nordstrom: Up to 40% off in all departments…I have my eye on the:
- Rag and Bone Margot Bootie…classic craftsmanship and a dual toned suede texture makes these a year-round investment.
- Burberry Chevrington Jacket…perfect for rainy days and brisk evenings.
- Freepeople Swing Dress…the earthy tones and easy fit will look great with booties and paired with tights or even jeans as the temperatures continue to drop!
- Equipment Oscar Cashmere Turtleneck…classic on every level.
- Alexis Bittar Lucite Small Hinged Bracelet: This is a perfectly timeless gift for others and one’s self.
- Anything from Burberry Beauty…I am completely loving the line as of late…especially the Earthy Blush and Dark Spice Complete Eye Palette (mentioned HERE).
- Neiman Marcus…up to 40% off sale items for the lowest price ever on in-season items! Also, $50 off select regular-priced qualifying purchase of $200 or more (including beauty and fragrance) with CODE: THANKFUL. I recommend/have my eye on:

- Bloomingdale’s (use code TURKEY for best savings)
- Nespresso Lattissima Touch Espresso Maker...if
you are a coffee lover, this is incredible, if you are one who cannot
get enough frothy milk on your coffee, this is a MUST. We bought ours

simply cannot be ignored. Ours makes us ridiculously happy.
