Black Friday: Wardrobe Essentials

Black Friday: Wardrobe Essentials on vickiarcher.com



It’s that day of the year.

Big savings are to be had and wardrobe essentials are what we want to shop for.


It’s Black Friday. We’ve strategized our ways of making the most of it and have pinned down the pieces to shop for. Sales are only savings if the pieces we find work in our existing wardrobes.



The White Shirt

We can never have too many white shirts. They’re the easiest of fashion pieces in all their different styles.


Wear them buttoned or loose, tucked in or out, they’re perfect on those days when nothing seems right. Dress it up for work and down to play, a white shirt is elegant, chic and never puts a foot wrong.


all white, every style

rag and bone classic  ||  victoria beckham pintuck  ||  rejina pyo high neck




The Cashmere Sweater

Cashmere sweaters are like a good t-shirt. They need to be well shaped and of good quality. Cream, black, navy and grey are the wardrobe staples.


They’re non-negotiables, work most days and will mix and match with most outfits.

neiman marcus superfine  ||  **barrie chevron  ||  nili lotan bell sleeve  ||  raey superfine v  ||  nili lotan boat neck




The Black Pants

Black pants, like the t-shirt, have no limits when it comes to how many pairs.


They can be dressed up or down, add a white shirt, a little ornamentation and glamourous is only moments away. 


pick a pair

1901 crop  ||  nic + zoe ankle  ||  j.crew stretch  ||  burberry wool  ||  saint laurent velvet  ||  haider ackerman wool  ||  jacquemas cotton




The Little Black Dress

The little black dress is an absolute for this list. No two are ever the same. On a cost per wear basis, the little black dress comes up trumps.


Simple is best and when in doubt, the little black dress is always the one. It should be worn not saved.


happiest in these: try them with the leather jacket

elie tahari sheath  ||  rag & bone t dress  ||  velvet wrap  ||  helmut lang satin  ||  boss sheath

akris punto shirtdress  ||  theory velvet a-line  ||  nic + zoe fit and flare  ||  vince cami style




The Blazer

The blazer is one of the most seductive and smart pieces a woman can wear. Think of them with a white shirt or classic tee and jewellery for impact.


Perfect for a black tie event or a visit to the shops; wear the blazer every chance you can, as there is nowhere a blazer can’t travel.


probably the favourite piece in my wardrobe

The Leather Jacket

The leather jacket is another one of those can’t-live-withouts


Wear the leather jacket over the little black dress. Mix the edgy with the formal and the silk with the leather.


tip: buy one size up to wear over everything

**michael kors classic  ||  neiman marcus simple  ||  theory lamb leather  ||  top shop biker  ||  la marque biker




Just Because

From experience, it’s great to have a strategy when it comes to sale shopping. 

If you love it, wear it; if you need it, this weekend is the weekend to jump. xv

Good morning Vicki! We are hitting the mall this morning, I suppose like everyone else! But the fun will simply be to try and walk off all that turkey we ate last night! We kept it a healthy fare: turkey, sweet potatoes and lots of greens. Now, to go find some cashmere and another white blouse! Happy day dearest Vicki!

I don’t often shop on Black Friday (I may be have emotional scars from working retail during my University-years).
I love to shop small local businesses though and have a few local stores with one of a kind, hand-crafted gifts.
Regarding online retailers, I have a few sites I enjoy; Dr. Dennis Gross (30% off), my two favorite items Extra Strength Alpha/Beta Peel and Retinol +Ferulic serum and Face Stockholm (30% off), Cranberry Veil lip stick is a must-have user-friendly red lipstick. Rod is a blue undertone lip stain that is also gorgeous.

Ok Vicki- inspired by you ( so thoughtful of you to curate Black Friday shopping for us!) I have been a woman on a mission. Happy to say, some cashmere and favourite J Crew stretch black pants in the cart online with Nordstrom . The only hitch being everyone else seemed to be doing the same and it took three hours of trying and retrying to actually proceed through the checkout! I was worried that it all might be a busted flush with my size and colours all gone, but happy to report this determined shopper triumphed in the end. Exhausting and that’s online- what must it be like in the actual stores!!!!
