I Wanted to Keep My Black Friday Wish List to Myself, But Here You Go

To be honest, I wanted to keep my Black Friday shopping list to myself because I don't want the items on it to sell out, but I decided I'm actually going to share the pieces that have landed on my wish list. I'm a fashion editor, so there's plenty of new clothing, shoes, and accessories on it, but there are also some of the key beauty items I regularly use and want to restock.

My fashion picks range from investment buys to affordable finds, on-trend pieces to cool basics. The common theme? They're all items I've had sitting in my cart but want to wait to buy until the Black Friday deals hit. For the beauty items, I'm only recommending the things I've put to the test myself and think deserve a place in your medicine cabinet. Ahead, shop my top Black Friday shopping picks—I just hope they don't sell out quickly so I can still scoop them up myself.


It's about time I added some cowboy boots to my closet.

I live in oversize button-downs, so I'm eyeing this one.

I'm not usually a print person, but I'll make an exception for this stunning cardigan.

Turns out, I'm a sock addict these days.

The perfect amount of chunky, in my opinion.

I actually ordered this dress already, but I just need to share some love for it because it's that good.

I still don't own a pair of chunky rubber boots and need to change that.

Leather bombers are taking over, and I want in.

Trying to get my hands on these shoes right now.


Yep, $65 for hand wash is a big splurge, but it's worth every penny. The scent is intoxicating.

I've been using this micellar water for over a decade, and it's still one of the most essential beauty products I own.

I just ran out, and it's taking all of my will power to hold off on ordering a replacement.

This stuff actually melts makeup away.

I discovered this chemical exfoliant on Instagram and was skeptical that it would actually transform my skin. If you need more proof that this stuff is basically skin magic, there are over 47,000 reviews to convince you.

The candle I'm addicted to and want in every room of my apartment.

I don't go outside unless this is slathered on.
