You Win, Black Friday—These 30 Pieces Are Taking Up All My Brain Space

best Black Friday shopping



Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

Every year, I try to avoid shopping on Black Friday. I'm impulsive, and I always end up with too many things and almost always regret them later. So my typical coping mechanism is to just avoid the day altogether. But sometimes, Black Friday wins. Sometimes, I become too weak and give in because there are just too many good finds to pass up. So here we are.

Clearly, I've got my eye on lots this year, like the perfect sandy-brown booties, the dreamiest faux-leather pants, and even a black crinkled shirt. My shopping cart is thriving, and I want you to be in on the fun. Keep scrolling for the 30 Black Friday finds that are currently taking up all my brain space (and soon, my closet space).
