FASHION NEWS: Black Friday

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and as I typically like to take this day to reflect on the amount of food consumed over the last 24 hours, I have decided this year that reflection of my expanding waistline is a thing of the past, and I have taken on a new challenge: Black Friday. Now as all of you Fashionistas and Fashionistos know Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year – all of our favorite stores have discounts on the newest items for the upcoming holiday season – sounds great right? But there is a catch – most sales in these stores end by noon, so in our typical day of rotting in a food coma we are subject to waking up at 10 a.m. and starting our shopping excursions.

This is my second year fully participating in Black Friday, and like most of you Fashionistas and Fashionistos I was originally extremely discouraged by the idea of crowds of people fighting over that last black scarf, but something came over me last year and I decided to give it a whirl and I am glad I did. My first and only stop last year was Saks Fifth Avenue and it was a huge succes –  they had great deals on handbags, scarves, sunglasses and shoes. This success is what has encouraged me to expand my Black Friday map this year and see what I can snag at other nearby stores. Black Friday is meant to be a day for discounted holiday shopping, but why not spoil yourself a little –  in the spirit of the holidays I encourage all of you Fashionistos and Fashionistas to give Black Friday a chance. Happy shopping!
