I'll be honest, I didn't think the Black Friday sales were as great as they have been in the past. Or maybe it's because I've been a little underwhelmed with retail offerings this season. Whatever it may be, Black Friday shopping is a standing tradition in my family. Every year, my mother, grandmother and I head out Friday morning and make a day out of it. It's really quite fun. Often, we're not out scouting "great" deals (i.e. a 55" TV for $200...or some other ridiculous discount) but rather just enjoying a girl's day shopping. 
I didn't make a huge haul, but I did pick up a few items at a steep discount, and I'm happy about that. I'm also certain I found the absolute perfect (and my new favorite) pair of neutral heels. I'm definitely happy about that. I'm talking about these Sam Edelman pumps. I got them in "golden caramel" but also had my eye on the gold and bright red pair. They fit like a glove and are the most perfect heel height - not too high, but high enough to give the shoe a great silhouette. I also love that the heel is situated at the very back of the shoe, rather than curved inward. It makes for great balance and walkability. Can you tell I'm really into these shoes?

The shoes were my most "exciting" purchase. I also picked up this Ralph Lauren Oxford Shirt to add to my collection... really, my closet is accumulating way too many of these. But they're great for work, can be dressed down or dressed up. And they're just such a classic style, you really can't have too many. Not to mention, I scored this one for just over $20, which is honestly unbelievable, as they retail at just short of $100. Saavy shopping at its best!

I also picked up a few of my favorite, favorite basic t-shirts from H&M. They weren't on sale in-store, but even paying full price is a steal (note: they're included in H&M's cyber weekend sale online!). They also released a long-sleeve version this season, so I picked up one of those, too. The only piece I got from H&M that was on sale was this cardigan. It was only $9, so that makes up for the other items being full-price, right?
