I was supposed to be getting some Christmas shopping done during Black Friday and instead I managed to splurge on some pieces for myself at American Eagle Outfitters / Aerie. I picked up a pair of AE jeggings, sequin scallop tank, open cardigan with ruffle hem, earrings, Aerie chambray tunic and cropped sweats.
There are still a few pieces I'd like to pick up from the holiday collection, including the AE sweetheart corset, Aerie snowball sweater and bobble party skirt.
The AE corset dresses and boyfriend tuxedo jacket are perfect for those upcoming holiday parties.
If you are looking to get some gifting done, there are tones of accessories including jewelry, jewelry wraps, earbud earmuffs, texting gloves, bags, cosmetic cases and fashion books.
