Black Friday 2011




finally back home! it feels so good to be cozy in my bed after waking up at sunrise to shop on the craziest shopping-day of the year. It was definitely not one for the books, considering the deals were not the best this year. other black fridays in the past blew this one away. I cannot express how disappointed I was with Urban Outfitters.. a few years ago I believe their black friday was something along the lines of 30-70 percent off everything as opposed to this years "50 percent off SALE items" terrible right? so Kayla & I continued on...Hot Topic had a fun and unique way of doing their sale, it was almost a game. we were handed "Scratchers" walking in where we had to scratch the card to find out how much percentage we were going to get off but to our disadvantage we both only got 20 percentage off and didn't think it was worth it (plus i didn't find my creepers :[ ) from that point on we decided to check out american apparel (mind you, it wasn't either of ours favorite store we actually almost consider skipping) but thank god we didn't because they had "buy one, get the second half off" deal for EVERYTHING. it was awesome. plus the employees we're cute and very helpful. Oh and kayla also got "DIVA" lipstick from MAC, its so pretty (see picture above). Oh and I forgot to mention H&M.. after trying on a bunch of outerwear and scarves i just wasn't feeling it. So now that you guys heard about my day, i want to hear about yours, the awesome (or not awesome) deals you scored and if you had to fight anyone over a product! comment comment comment!

  2. I have to agree with you! This year was my first year going shopping on Black Friday. i've always been too lazy to wake up in the morning and go. This year i'd decided i would go because for the past couple of years i kept hearing how awesome the deals were. The deals this year weren't anything big. Big disappointment for my first time. But the experience was still a fun one! :]

  3. Sadly there's no Black Friday sale here in Ireland. I like the black sweater you're donning though. Are the pile of watches from the 9th row from Urban Outfitters? Just wanted to know. Thanks :)

  6. It's tradition to go to black friday sales in my family and I never go to actually buy anything just for the fun. Plus the deals were crap this year. Someone at one of the stores here got in a fist fight. Over towels. People are crazy.

  21. Were you at Victoria Gardens?? That's the only place in the area that I can think of that has all those stores in one place. Other than LA. Also, I really hope you bought that Fair Isle sweater. It's freakin' sweet! Definitely a good find.

    And I didn't shop any Black Friday sales. I had to work from 8am-6pm. Loooong day. But I did go hang out in Portland afterwards to hang out with my brother and his girlfriend. :)
