So I know that Black Friday is a day to catch great deals on holiday shopping. However, I can't help but feel guilty that many of my purchases were for myself. Is it just me or are retailers marketing the idea of shopping for others... AND yourself? I certainly couldn't be the only one indulging in my own Christmas gifts -- otherwise there would not be lines of 15 and more at the retail store dressing rooms! To that end, I am happy to say that I successfully shopped for everyone on my list, but I certainly took advantage for myself. Anyway, here is what I bought!
I started my Black Friday shopping at the outlets, anxious to hit up J. Crew Factory and take advantage of 50-percent off store-wide. Although I live close to one, the Crewlet vultures had sucked it dry -- OK maybe a slight exaggeration, but none of my sizes and colors were left! The outlets my husband and I went to had a better selection. Long lines though! I bought a Jackie cardigan in black for $25 (no photo available) because I always can use another black cardigan. (Side note: Lands End Canvas "Heritage" cardigans --- where are you?)
While there I bought the plaid skimmer pants that I saw on Beach Chic Style and it was hard to walk away from the pants for about $20. I also grabbed a lone quilted excursion vest in Fiesta Purple for $25. My favorite purchase was these leopard pajama pants! I'm wearing them for the second night in a row. These will make their way into the wash soon but not tonight!
Lastly, I learned that Kate Spade was having a 20-percent off promotion online and since I just LOVE my new gumdrop earrings, I decided to buy a pair of these gold studs.
OK done for a while. Need to extinguish the flames coming off my credit cards!
