Shana’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

One: Beauty tools!! Kinda blown away by the beauty tools on sale. My fave brand for hair-styling tools, ghd, has a curling iron, a smart flatiron (read the description to see why it’s “smart”), and — most intriguing — this hot brush, a tool that can be used to perk up dry hair.  These ghd products heat up AND cool down in seconds, and they work with worldwide voltage, so you can pack them on any trip. Huge fan.

There’s also the PMD microdermabrasion kit I’ve started using weekly. So freaking good. (The “pro” version of the microderm kit is the best for the $$. It gives the ability to change the speeds, unlike the basic model. “Elite pro” is overkill.)

Two: JEWELRY. Nordstrom has a ton of sustainably made Monica Vinader (one of my all time favorites) on sale and…wow. And this paperclip necklace (on sale) is very similar to the one I wear daily. Her pieces are not just beautifully made, but sustainably made, too. Here’s a slightly more delicate version (less expensive, too). There are earrings (oh, hiiii, this pair) and…lemme just grab all my faves:

Three: JEANS. Nordstrom does NOT have the denim selection that Saks has right now, but that said…there are couple of pairs I can highly recommend: I just picked up these straight-leg jeans from AG, and they’re bananas soft (and exactly that modern, perfectly straight fit), and these rag & bone Nina cigarette jeans are also great (pictured above, right). They fit like modern boyfriend jeans and look great with snow boots too.

Scotti’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

One: Nordstrom Moonlight Pajamas – I love these PJs so much, I’ve purchased them twice for myself and multiple times as gifts for others. They’re incredibly comfortable, and I love the style. They come in a number of different colors and patterns, but the black, navy and animal print are 40% off!

TWO: Free People Cotton Moto Jacket – Like a heavy sweatshirt, this is a great layering piece that can easily be dressed up or down. I’m wearing vanilla creme here (looks darker in the retail pic) and I love the black, too. 

THREE: Sam Edelman Knee-High Boots – I’m obsessed with these gold boots from Sam Edelman (see two ways to wear them here), but if you’re not into gold, the brown, black and camel colors are also on sale (30% off!).

Laura’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: FRAME Le Original Jeans – I popped these on again recently and remembered why I love them so much. They’re soft and just a great pair of jeans that go with any of my flats, loafers, and chunky or pointed-toe boots. They’re just so good. TTS but size up for the waist if you’re straighter like me. Wearing a 29. Same cut and very similar wash to mine.

TWO: Free People New Frontier Chelsea Boot – These are really great boots — well-made and with great details you don’t see in every pair of this style. The stacked heel in the contrasting color levels them up a notch. They’re some of my faves. Go up half a size. Also in white, which I really am considering! Similar Jeans

THREE: BlankNYC Plaid Long Shacket – I tried this thing on at a local boutique earlier this fall and it’s one of those things I kick myself for not getting. It’s so cozy and cute! Size up if you want to layer but TTS if you want it over a tee like this. It’s like a fuzzy jacket friend! Wearing a S.

Kat’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: My favorite winter coats are all from Avec Les Filles, and this puffer I own is on sale! It’s cozy and perfect for wintery weather. The exact color I’m wearing sold out last year; however, it’s available in classic black and a vibrant red. I wear the size XXL. 

TWO: I bought my Vitruvi oil diffuser in 2019 and absolutely love it. I love that it’s such an aesthetically pleasing piece of decor, and it fills the room with your scent of choice very quickly. It has several settings and also makes a great night light. This gorgeous humidifier is also on sale, and I’m purchasing it for my plants!

Amy’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: I adore everything about this pair of lug-sole Chelsea boots and was constantly reaching for them in Michigan falls/winters. The shape is unique and stunning, and the colors are so good. My color, Sesame, is the perfect combination of black and light tones that seems to make every outfit better!

TWO: I mean, there really aren’t better slippers than UGGs. This pair is ultra-warm and cushions my feet better than past versions. I highly recommend scooping them up for winter, especially while on sale (psst…they make for excellent gifts too).

THREE: Technically just in the regular sale section, but I recently fell in love with Reformation’s sustainable denim, and the regular 29-inch inseam of my fave jeans is on sale for a price that feels too good to be true (I’m 5’9” pictured wearing the 33-inch). These jeans are tight/fitted in the waist and slightly relaxed in the leg. Truly a “forever closet” pair of jeans.

Linzi’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: My Top Pick For ACTUALLY Comfortable Tall Boots – After my search for walkable, comfortable tall boots this fall, these were my top pick. Vintage-y chic look, soft and comfy footbed, great distribution of weight, and perfect fit. More details in my review of Naturalizer boots here.

TWO: Can’t Stop Wearing Zella Joggers – Anyone who crosses paths with me on the regular in Philly knows JUST how much I wear my Zella joggers. Over and over and over and over. My newest Zella Restore Soft Lite Joggers (currently on sale for under $50) are the prettiest shade of blue, and they’re basically like Vuori and Zella had a baby. Buttery soft but a bit more substantial feeling than my Vuoris.

THREE: Ridiculously similar to the expensive wooden clog boots, but at a fraction of the $$$. These boots are walkable, comfortable, I love the rubber tread, AND the color selection is fantastic. The leather isn’t super soft at first, so they take some work pulling on and off initially, but they’re breaking in quickly.

Julieta’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Joe’s Mia Flare Jeans (27, size up) – Most of my jeans are feeling blah lately, but not these. I wear them weekly — sometimes twice a week — with sneakers for my work-from-home life or heels when I need to dress up.  

TWO: 27 Edit Naturalizer Leather Pumps – The perfect low, walkable heels that are a dream to walk in because of that cushioned insole. More colors available.

Jess’ Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Topshop Stitchy Cardigan – This cardigan was one of my favorite under-$50 finds from the Nordstrom sale this year. And I’ve worn the heck out of it! 

TWO: Topshop Oversized Turtleneck Sweater – I love this sweater so much — it’s a pretty close dupe to this $481 Toteme sweater (and this Topshop version is less than $50!)

Em’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: I just picked up this longline cardigan last month, and it’s an easy top layer that looks chic — despite the fact that its close cousin is a bathrobe. Love the two different knit textures. Worth noting: It wasn’t as soft as I hoped when I first pulled it out of the package, but it softened substantially after one wash.

TWO: The piece I’m most likely to buy for myself: these Joe’s jeans, now 40% off. The (non-distressed!) black wash is easy to dress up or down, the wide-leg design is both current and classic (not to mention comfy), and the length would be easy to pair with tall boots now and Birks in the summer.
