Black Friday Sale Roundup: Beauty

Now that we’ve gotten a good number of the clothing-centric sales out of the way, it’s time to stock up on all of your favorite beauty products. These items rarely go on sale so there’s no better time to fill your cart up – AND there are so many things that could be perfect as stocking stuffers!

Sephora: Black Friday Beauty Sets – starting at just $10! Seriously guys, you can’t pass these up: Nest Perfume Trio for $12, Origins Cult Faves 4-pack for $18, and Drybar Dry Shampoo Duo for $30..just to name a few! Hurry before these all get scooped up!

Ulta: You can find all of Ulta’s Black Friday Beauty Busters here (BareMinerals and Tarte beauty kits for under $20, 20% off Clarisonic holiday sets…) but hurry they are selling out fast!

Glossier: This is their only sale of the year! 20% off everything + free shipping! Some of the products I’m a little (read: really) obsessed with include: boy brow, Generation G lip color, milk jelly cleanser, haloscope…okay let’s just say I’m obsessed with pretty much everything!

Shopbop is having the most amazing sale and the more you buy the more you save. Oh, and there are no exclusions. It’s basically the best and worst thing to ever happen. I’ve gathered up some of the things I’ll be stocking up on along with a few things I’ve thrown in my cart just to see how much I would be able to save (deleting them shortly after because, sigh, rent is due this week). Side note: as I went through everything I wanted I noticed a black/white/grey/navy trend. Can spring please get here so I can get back in bright color mode?!

Gearing Up for Black Friday

Black-Friday-J.Crew-Outlet-SalesJudging by the 2ft long receipt, you can see Black Friday 2012 was a success…

So the truth is: we kind of love Black Friday. It’s been a tradition since high school to go to ‘Midnight Madness’ at Pleasant Prairie Outlet Mall in WI to shop the sales until the wee hours of the morning. The nice thing now (for us at least, not so much the retail staff) is that many of these sales now start at 9:00 or 10:00pm.

Even though Jocelyn will be in NYC this Friday, I’ll be carrying out the tradition and bringing the boyfriend along (Matt is in for a TREAT)! First stop is always J.Crew outlet, typically followed by: Banana Republic, Ralph Lauren, Cole Haan, Nine West, BCBG and Bare Minerals. Ok fine, I guess I’ll let Matt check out Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour, too.

The primary focus of any Black Friday outleting excursion is always J.Crew Factory Store. If you plan on hitting the Factory Store in person or online, find some helpful hints and tips below!

The Unofficial Guide to J.Crew Factory Store Shopping

Bargain Hunting: If you really want to score a deal – go early. Like, when it first opens. While there’s plenty of product stocked at the front of the store, the good clearance items (often an additional 50% off) go fast. If there’s something you like in your size – hang on to it!

Take a Number: The fitting room lines will eventually wrap around the store, so pull everything you want to try on at once rather than making several trips. Try on at the same time as friends if you think you’ll need a second opinion. Will be hard to track them down otherwise!

The Approach: Now’s the time to stock up on basics. Perfect tees and tanks (in every color), Jackie cardigans (again, in EVERY color), socks (the cheetah print, argyle, and marled wool pairs I got last year are my faves) and sweaters (turtlenecks, crewnecks, V-necks or cashmere…whatever you’re into) are plentiful. I seriously wait all year for this stock up sess. I’ve found some great skirts, dresses, phone cases, and pajama pants over the years, too.

There are also some super fun accessories scattered throughout the store that make great gifts – critter necklaces, stands of pearls, sparkly belts, passport covers, argyle flasks, printed cosmetic cases, scarfs, ear muffs….

Quality Control: The reason why I focus on basics as opposed to investment pieces like Schoolboy Blazers, Double-cloth Coats, and work wear is because the quality of structed pieces isn’t quite up to par. If you’re used to the regular J.Crew merchandise, when you shop J.Crew Factory you will notice a difference. I can’t really distinguish a difference in cotton pieces, but for highly tailored items made of thicker materials, you can tell the products are lower-grade.

This is not uncommon among outlets and other factory stores – Coach outlet, for example, sells an entirely different line of lower quality leathergoods at their outlet stores than at the prime retail locations. Just a word of caution that the fit, feel, texture, and weight of certain items isn’t the same as regular retail stores (this is, however, reflected in the significant cost savings).

If you do not live near a J.Crew outlet, or don’t feel like dealing with people, J.Crew Factory Store online will feature a much similar selection of merchandise. You won’t get the perks of picking through the clearance rack, that can feature regular retail store overstock or returns (these items won’t have a double diamond on the tag), and you may not get the additional discounts that will apply in-store, but that’s not to say good deals can’t be found!

Friday Favorites

I hope everyone had a great week. I have been easing back into my routine after a busy end to October full of visitors in NYC. Here are a few things we are loving right now to take you through the final stretch before the weekend:

This “Cups Song” cover. I never really got tired of the song, but I know it’s probably passing its prime. I’ve been watching this video non-stop and even if you were over the song, this will make you un-over it. If that’s even a thing. You get what I mean, just watch it!

theSkimmI don’t know how I didn’t know about this before…my roommate just introduced it to me a few days ago. I really do have the best of intentions with keeping up with current events, but I usually get distracted by a thought mid-first paragraph and give up. theSkimm is great because they take all the big stories and summarize them for you in one short and sweet daily newsletter to start off your morning with. Sorry if this is old news to everyone else, but I’m pretty excited about it.

Sales at J. Crew. J. Crew is offering 25% off your purchase of $100 or more. This sweater and these boots have already made their way into my shopping cart! And, as to not be overshadowed, J. Crew Factory is one-upping their older sibling and offering 30% off of everything. So yeah, I had to tell my paycheck to not get to comfortable in my bank account because it won’t be there long.

Fall is in full swing. I’m honestly pretty excited that the crisp fall temps are finally here. I am happy (for now) to break out tights and boots and all of my outerwear. Plus, I mean, look at these colors. Even if you hate the cold, doesn’t this just make you love it a little more for a second?
