Overall, I wasn't super impressed with this year's Black Friday deals though that doesn't mean I came home empty-handed. For years, the Burberry outlet started BF sales on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the deals were AMAZING. Think cashmere check scarf retailing for $300+ costing $100 or earmuffs for $40 (although earmuffs look very strange on me so I wound up gifting them). This year, I'm sad to report that not only did the sale get pushed back to Friday but also the deals were meh. Scarves were only 25% off and all the 50% off handbags were snapped up before I arrived. I bought a few hats as gifts and left feeling a little let down that there weren't any good scarf deals.
I also wound up going to J. Crew and getting the striped cardigan I had wanted from last spring for $16. It was at this point that Hubby called to kindly remind me that the fam was waiting. As the dutiful wife / mother, I left the mall :)

Thankfully, there were amazing deals before Thanksgiving and I got to partake in those. :) Did you know that Fossil manufactures many designer watches like Burberry, Emporio Armani, and Michael Kors? I stopped by the Fossil outlet before Turkey Day and found that they had 25% off MK watch sale prices.

This was such a good deal! But now I want a tortoiseshell one too and I'm going to see if my Aunt can go back to the outlet to pick one up for me. This is the one I'm eyeing:
Michael Kors MK4235 Tortoiseshell Print Watch, ~$70-80
The gold accents are perfect for someone like me who doesn't want an all-gold watch but still wants to match metals with gold jewelry.
And Macy's for this $50 navy trench coat:
I've started knitting and this is my first cowl scarf :) I love this goldenrod color! I'm trying to get the hang of a good size for these so there will be some "samples" left over - anyone interested in a cowl scarf giveaway?
Kohl's for these bangle bracelets:
