Hey Gang! If you are concerned with shopping small this Black Friday, consider shopping at Social Threads. This online boutique is owned by two New Jersey moms who are definitely good people. They have a killer eye and have stocked their store with fun, easy-to-wear pieces that hover around the $100 range. They’re also doing a rare Black Friday sale: 30% off sitewide.
My 4 Favorite Pieces At Social Threads
Their Black Friday sale is one day only (sob!!), but they will have some holiday pieces on sale for Cyber Monday, so check back if you’ve missed it.
1. This Gorgeous Sweater-Tee
This Free People sweater has sweater-like sleeves (and neck), but the body part is a thermal. It’s so soft and cozy, and really quite stunning on. Mike walked in and was all “Heyyyyyy”. It’s bright and cheery and fun…without being too much. I’m DYING over this one — snap it up.
2. This Perfect Black Turtleneck
Don’t overlook this un-boring black turtleneck. It’s drapey through the body and super soft. Also, the sleeves are long enough, and the neck is perfect:not too tight nor itchy. Best of all, the banded-waist bottom means this top looks good untucked, too.
3. OMG These Sequin Joggers
I was grumpy yesterday (yes, on Thanksgiving) so I took a glass of wine upstairs to get ready by myself. I decide to deck myself in head-to-toe sequins as a mood booster AND IT WORKED. Turns out it’s hard to be mad when you shine bright like a diamond.
Here are two other ways to wear these seriously fun happy-pants….
Yup, the above pic is that same black turtleneck, but tucked in. The banded waist bottom is designed in such a way that it can also easily be tucked in, too.
Lastly, I really like these pants with a simple graphic tee. (And I’ve been meaning to show you ABLE’s tigers graphic tee — I LOVE the fit.)
4. Cute Mitten Alert
Every winter, Maureen & Sara manage to find some fun winter accessories — ones I haven’t seen anywhere else. These mittens are a good example: bright, fun and lined in fleece. They’re great. You can see all of their winter accessories here.
I’ve been really excited by our small business coverage this year. We included a bunch of small businesses in our Black Friday / Cyber Monday Cheat Sheet, and we have more gifts guides (and outfits) coming out, all featuring small businesses. You can find all of our small business coverage here.
