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.
