Everyone loves to hate on Black Friday, but for those who've been lying in wait for certain designer items to go on sale all season, it can be a pretty satisfying occasion. Those over-the-knee Zara boots I wrote about in October? I was able to snag them for 30 percent off over the weekend. Ditto the saffron-colored shearling snow boots I'd been tempted to buy at full-price from Coach (which are still available on coach.com).
Okay, enough bragging. But I did want to share one sale find because it's still on sale in quite a few sizes: Tibi's backless loafer. I've been eyeing these simple, streamlined flats since Tibi introduced them a season or two ago: They're a great alternative to the tired ballet flat, and lend a bit of mannish nonchalance to a skirt or pair of cropped trousers. As a bonus, you won't have to worry about any uncomfortable friction on the back of the foot. (In other words, they'll be perfect for Fashion Month -- which, hey, isn't too far away.)
