Black Friday, the Superbowl of shopping, is fast approaching and if you’re already mapping out a plan, you’re one smart cookie and already one step ahead of the game. Preparation is key to getting through the Black Friday shopping experience with your sanity and dignity intact. Yes, it may be true for some that the time and trouble just isn’t worth the few extra dollars in savings, but when you’re a glam girl with a mission on her mind, the savings can truly be HUGE. Case in point, Express’s annual Holiday sale. Express is known for its ultra trendy, high-quality selection of affordable garments. One of the mall’s most fashionable stores indeed, they are currently offering 50% storewide (yes, you read that right. STOREWIDE.) The best part? This to-die-for sale is going on right now. A half-off store event is quite rare, so RUN, don’t walk! You have until noon on Black Friday to snatch up a range of super luxe styles. Clutches, jackets, sequined blouses and shoes are great gifts for women of all ages. Whether it’s leather, leopard, glitter or lace, with these hot deals, you’re sure to find a ton of stylish items without breaking your Black Friday budget. Scratch your girlfriends, female family members and co-workers off your list by bargain shopping at Express, the Holiday Glam capital of the mall. Get on it, Girl. You can avoid the Black Friday rush altogether by making a pit stop at the mall today or tomorrow! Click through the slideshow for a few of my favorite glam gift picks.
HAIRCALF POINTED TOE RUNWAY BOOTIE
The epitome of chic, this pointed toe runway bootie will pair fabulously with anything from leather leggings to the little black dress. At half off until Black Friday, it boasts a highly impressive price of $64, a total steal when taking into account the major luxe factor they elicit.
GOLD SEQUIN FLIPPY SKIRT
Who doesn’t love a little sparkle during the holidays? Pair this ultra stylish skirt with a black tank top, a leather crop top or even a classic white button-down blouse for a killer holiday party look. A swipe of red lipstick, black pointy-toed pumps and a top knot are all you need to complete this fresh and flirty look.
SEQUIN EMBELLISHED CROPPED TEE
Crop tops are all the rage this season, and an embellished version will definitely take you well through spring. This black sequined crop top will pair beautifully with a white maxi skirt, a pair of high-waisted trousers or tucked into a leather pencil skirt at any time of the year. This item does plenty of talking, so forgo accessories and complement with this look with a smoky eye and a glossy nude lip. Voila! Holiday Party Perfection.
LEATHER SOFT SHORTS
Though the weather might be chilly, who can resist a pair of soft leather shorts? Layer a pair of sleek stockings underneath for extra coverage. Whether it’s lace, a floral pattern or a simple opaque style, tights are practical and when worn in black, can make legs look utterly statuesque. Pair these babies with a simple white T-shirt and black blazer, or go full-on Glam Girl and pair it with a gold sequined tank top or flowy chiffon blouse. Tres chic!
HAIRCALF TOP DRIVING GLOVES
A little bit Madonna, a little bit Michael Jackson, a lot of glam for sure. These insanely stylish calf-hair gloves are a great gift for any fashionista. The perfect accent to an all-black ensemble, use these gorgeous gloves to keep you or a loved one warm during the entire holiday season and beyond.
