Exactly What to Buy on Black Friday: Editors' Personal Shopping Picks
RAYE LEOPARD PRINT BOOTIES
Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: All of the sudden, I've had a huge craving for a leopard-print bootie. I've had my eyes on the Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney pairs for a while, though I'm not ready (and I'm not sure I'll ever be ready) to shill out hundreds of dollars for a pair of shoes I know I'm going to mess up walking the streets of New York City. These ones are everything I wanted: The perfect heel height (3.5 inches), the perfect print (not too much or too little) and — soon with the mega Black Friday deals Revolve.com has been promoting — the perfect price.

Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: I love to shop all the big department stores on Black Friday because they always have the best deals online and in store. This year I have my eye on this cutout LBD from Likely. I've already RSVP'd to a NYE party, and for the first time I'm not leaving my outfit shopping until the day before.
Buy It! Likely "St. Claire" Cutout Dress, $198; bloomingdales.com
REBECCA MINKOFF SADDLE BAG
Sarah Ball, Fashion Market Editor: I usually can't resist a good sale because that's when I indulge on slightly out-there items I I normally wouldn’t be able to justify, but this year I went for a more classic item. I love this Rebecca Minkoff bag – the braiding and tassel detail makes it feel super luxe and expensive. It's perfect for dressing up or just a casual weekend. I know I’ll get so much use out of it!
Buy It! Rebecca Minkoff Bag, $325; rebeccaminkoff.com
BAUBLE BAR EARRINGS
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Bauble Bar is offering 30 percent off the entire site on Black Friday, which means I won't feel guilty treating myself to some new jewels when I really should be focused on getting my holiday shopping list completed. But since these star-and-moon-shaped drop earrings will look great with any holiday party outfit, it's just too good a deal to pass up.
Buy It! Bauble Bar cosmic drops earrings, $38; baublebar.com
EVERLANE SWEATER DRESS
Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: I love an excuse to shop as much as the next person, but I try to stay zen around the Thanksgiving holiday. So this year I'm treating myself to something I already wanted - this Everlane cashmere sweater dress - and feeling good about the fact that the company is forgoing sales in order to provide helmets to 8,000 of their moped-riding factory workers in Vietnam instead.
Buy It! Everlane cashmere sweater dress, $155; everlane.com
CLUB MONACO LIVA EARRINGS
Emily Kirkpatrick, Associate Style News Editor: Having worn glasses most of my adult life, I'm not a big earring girl since they tend to make my face feel like it's drowning in pizzazz. But these ones are cute and simple enough that I can actually see myself wearing them every day.
Buy It! Club Monaco Charlotte Lebeck Liva Earring, $100; clubmonaco.com
8 Suede Gloves
Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: A nice pair of leather gloves is always my go-to gift for friends and family -- but I've never bought a nice pair for myself. So this year, I'm splurging on this gorgeous gray suede pair, which goes with any coat -- and happens to be an extra 20% off for the holiday.
Buy It! 8 Suede Gloves, $60, yoox.com
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: My holiday-party aesthetic can be summed up in one word: velvet. My go-to, Madewell, is offering 25 percent off your entire purchase, and this little dress is definitely making it in my cart. I'll wear it layered over a turtleneck at the office, then on its own with sparkly tights at night.
Buy it! Madewell velvet dress, $112.50 (originally $150); madewell.com
EDDIE BORGO CUFF
Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Back in my 20s, I used to have a bad habit of splurging on cuffs. These days I’m far more concerned about my 401K than what bracelets I’m wearing, but since I’ve been dreaming of this statement Eddie Borgo piece for a few weeks, I’ve decided to put it atop my wish list with the caveat that anyone purchasing my favorite find of 2016 buy it this weekend to take advantage of all of Intermix’s steals and deals.

Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: I hoard stud earrings, and with Black Friday right around the corner, I decided it's time to invest in my first pair of diamonds. The discount on this pretty pair is too good for me to resist!
Buy It! Kohl's 10k White Gold 14 Carat T.W. Solitaire Stud Earrings, $135 (originally $450); kohls.com
