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.
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.
