Now that we are trapped at home literally all of the time, you may notice some things about your place. Like, how your bedspread is getting pretty ratty. Or how your cat really did rip your couch to shreds. Or how you’re pretty sure you’ll f*cking die if you have to look at the mismatched table and chair set you bought from Ikea when you got your first apartment 10 years ago for one more second. I’m not dramatic, these are facts. Being home really makes you reevaluate your space and want to live in a cleaner, less cluttered, and new environment. Lucky for you, redecorating is something that you can totally do online. (My new bed frame comes Monday.) And you don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it. Businesses are throwing out sales left and right to stay afloat, so I found some great sales on home decor so you can upgrade your place and not drain your savings!
God, I love Crate & Barrel. It’s normally quite a bit out of my price range so I like to online window shop (which is the saddest thing ever, FYI) and pretend like I can afford it. However, they’re having sales pretty regularly. Right now they have free furniture delivery and 40% off outdoor furniture, 20% off outdoor rugs, 20% off furniture/lighting/wall decor, and 20% off clearance rugs/bedding. The nice thing about buying from here is that the stuff is definitely good quality, so now is the time to upgrade your space with investment pieces at a discount. If you’re lucky enough to have a yard, please get their gorgeous outdoor sets so I can live vicariously through you while I’m trapped in my tiny LA apartment this summer.
CB2 is super chic and definitely where real adults shop. Since I feel like a weird, fake baby-adult, I really appreciate when they have insane sales to make it more affordable. Right now, they have 40% off gifts, 30% off planters, and 30% off outdoor furniture. It seems like everyone’s getting a yard makeover before we’re out of quarantine. Must. Be. Nice. Anyway, I would definitely check out their gifts section, but like, for yourself, because these super luxe pieces are totally affordable and will make your apartment seem more adult and put together.
Pottery Barn is having a 50% off furniture, bedding, and more sale right now AND has code “Summer” for free shipping. Were you thinking of investing in a gorgeous made-to-last new couch? Now it is the time to do it. All I can think about with Pottery Barn is that one episode of Friends and the apothecary table. Let me tell you, if you want to buy everything in the sample image to match the catalog, no one would blame you.
No list would be complete without Target, the Holy Grail of… well, everything. While Target is not running any specific home decor promotions right now (probably because everything is already pretty affordable), their sale section has a ton of deals on everything from rugs to storage to wall hangings and more.
Wayfair is my go-to for cheap furniture and a variety of styles. My friend just bought the cutest dining set from them literally last week. All of my balcony furniture is from them because I needed benches and a patio table that had storage but could still fit on my small balcony. They are having sales of up to 85% off, and they have literally every style you could imagine. Even if you have a tiny patio, I definitely recommend upgrading it with their outdoor sale and creating a cute little place to have a drink and get some fresh air.
West Elm is where my new bed is from, and I cannot wait because… it has storage! My secret to living in a small studio apartment is that literally everything has secret storage. And everything is on sale at West Elm now, with 40% off furniture, 50% off home decor, 60% off rugs, and 40% off bedding. Now is the perfect time to give your bedroom an upgrade. West Elm is much like Crate & Barrel, where the quality of furniture is great and worth investing in. Also. they have tons of couches, tables, etc. all with storage! Can you tell I really like storage? Say storage again. But like, think how much better you’ll feel being able to shove away all your clutter into convenient hidden spaces!
Have you been playing Home Makeover with your space, too? Where have you found the best deals lately? What are your storage tips for living in tiny spaces?

You’re either someone who THRIVES off of the adrenaline rush of scoring a deal on Black Friday or… a liar. Everyone’s down to save a few bucks on the biggest shopping day of the year. And, not to brag or anything, but I’m one of those people who personally thrives on Black Friday because I’m unusually skilled at fighting through crowds. Just ask my ex-boyfriend about that one time we went to an Avicii concert together and I fought my way through general admission right up to the stage! Well, actually, I got up there but he didn’t, so maybe don’t ask him because that night didn’t end well. Hey, he’s an ex for a reason. ANYWAY, I say all that just to point out that you don’t have to go beating yourself up right now if you’re not a crowd ninja like myself. This is because, nowadays, it’s easier than ever to shop Black Friday sales from the comfort of your own home. We’ve already talked about the best beauty deals to shop, so here are the Black Friday fashion sales that you need to get in on (from your bed).
Josefine Dress, $278
Everyone’s favorite online retailer, Reformation, which very rarely has sales, will be offering a sitewide discount of 30% off starting at some point on Thanksgiving. We can all assume sizes will definitely go fast, so I’d recommend hitting up this sale first, before any of your other online stops. They currently have tons of amazing pieces that are perfect for all your holiday festivities and ideal for whether you’re attending a business casual office party or a boozy holiday house soirée. And by “soirée” I just mean there will be nicer alcohol than Burnetts and Crown Russe, #adulting.
2. Good American
Good Waist Chewed Hem, $175
If you haven’t tried Good American denim yet, then you’re seriously missing out. I feel like people think I’m an ambassador for the brand at this point but sadly, I’m not—I just genuinely love their jeans that much. (Of course, if they are looking for brand ambassadors you know where to find me.) On Black Friday, Good American will be offering 25% off sitewide, so now’s your chance to get yourself a high-quality, perfect-fitting pair of jeans that are somehow comfy too, at a discounted price. What a win.
3. For Love & Lemons
Whitney Faux Mohair Sweater, $162
I’m OBSESSED with For Love & Lemons. Unfortunately, when their basic lace thong averages around $50 a pop, it’s not exactly my go-to spot for new clothes. However, Black Friday allows a peasant such as myself the opportunity to actually be able to afford their stuff, so you best believe I’ll be taking full advantage. The coveted brand will be offering 30% off sitewide, so take advantage and get yourself a holiday must-have statement-making piece while you can.
4. Luv Aj
Double Ball Chain Necklace, $55
This celebrity favorite jewelry brand will be offering 40% off sitewide this Black Friday which is like, the deal of the century. They make great everyday jewelry essentials worth stocking up on, plus they’re offering a phenomenal discount. You can finally get in on the cool girl Insta-blogger trend of layered necklaces, just without having to spend your entire paycheck now. Also, if you’re feeling selfless, their delicate and timeless pieces make for universally great gifts that everyone is guaranteed to love.
Hepburn High Rise Wide Leg, $199
Another one of my favorite denim brands, DL1961, will be offering 40% off sitewide, which is actually crazy for a premium denim brand. They make tons of different styles and fits, so if I were you I’d take full advantage and get yourself a trendy pair plus an everyday pair. At that steep discount, you’d actually be dumb not to.
Shirley Bag Tan Croc Embossed, $210
If you don’t know the brand Staud, then Black Friday is the time and place to get yourself acquainted. Staud makes super cool clothes and accessories, and also happens to be another celebrity favorite brand. The brand is probably most recognized for their gorgeous handbags, which you’ll be able to get for 25% off, along with everything else on their site, starting this Wednesday. So sweet of them to start their Black Friday promotion early knowing how busy I’ll be ordering everything else on my list that day, so good looking out, Staud.
Silk Tie-Neck Blouse in Leopard, $148
Okay, so J.Crew isn’t necessarily on-brand with my personal style, but I also don’t work your average 9-to-5. Not to mention, my everyday style tends to gravitate toward denim so distressed that some may consider it to be shorts. However, regardless of my personal preferences, I’m a woman of the people and it is my civic duty to let you know about their unbelievable Black Friday deals. J. Crew will be doing 50% off full price items and 60% off sale. With that type of deal, I may just have to buy this leopard blouse to wear with my aforementioned aggressively distressed jeans. That’s probably not the way J.Crew intended it to be worn, but whatevs.
So with all of these incredible deals coming up, I’d definitely start prepping your finances now. Or, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones out there whose payday also happens to fall on Black Friday. In which case, I’m actually not sure if that is lucky or not since you will definitely be blowing the entire thing within 24 hours. But hey, eating ramen for a week straight will taste a whole lot better if you’re doing so in your amazing new Reformation dress.
