Black Friday

I know a lot of people avidly avoid Black Friday sales but I was not one of them this past weekend.  In fact, I was with the group of 400 people lining up at the mall at 6am on Black Friday.   Is that a bit crazy?  Sure.  I don't really mind crowds and the thrill of the hunt energizes me.  To prep, I do advance detective work on what the sales are going to be (ie 50% off sale at Anthro) and then have a mental list of things to look out for.  Then I go in, I peruse, I grab, and I buy (my shopping version of veni, vidi, vici). 

This year, I did get some of the items on my mental wishlist, and was pleasantly surprised by the Madewell sale.  I scored big time and above are some of my favorites: a chambray shirt, a cozy sweater coat and two maxi skirts--just in time for the cooler weather!

What did you find this Black Friday/Cyber Monday?


  1. You are a braver woman than I! I only braved sales on my computer. Got a bunch of gifts, and of course a few things for myself. The sweater jacket you got looks so cozy.

  2. S--the sweater jacket is on sale at Madewell today for an extra 30% off... ;)

  3. Is that a mustard maxi skirt????? LOVE!

  4. it's a bit more brown IRL but it's still pretty awesome!
