I braved Black Friday

Yep, I did it. I went shopping today. Not exactly the Black Friday madness I expected! Well, maybe a litte bit.

I ventured over to the Kohl’s near my family’s house just to see what all the fuss was about. Frankly, I would have gone out shopping anyway, so the fact that it was Black Friday didn’t really faze me one way or the other.

We got there around noon (I went with pro-shopper Karen, fellow blogger Jenny, and my little bro), and the store itself was pretty quiet except for the massive line.

There were a decent number of sales, with a lot of stuff marked 50% off or higher for the ‘early bird special’, which lasted until 2:30pm. Not sure why that’s considered early, but I’m not complaining.

I ended up snagging a Lauren Conrad blazer, a drapey cardigan, and blue pullover sweater. The total for all three was just under $70. Not too bad. The blazer was a nice length for pairing with dresses (ending at the waist), and the sweaters just looked cozy.

And even though it was the biggest discount day of the year, I still don’t advocate buying things purely because they’re on sale! I had an entire conversation with myself (out loud) over the three items, asking Bryn whether Bryn would spend her hard-earned money on these clothes if they weren’t on sale. Interestingly enough, I wasn’t the oddest looking/sounding person in the store. It was Black Friday after all.
