Happy Black Friday Week!

Tis the week to shop. I’ve never made a secret of hating the whole Black Friday phenomenon. Most of the advertised “door buster” sales are pretty impossible to get and the deals are never worth the crowds to me.  However, the maturation of online shopping has changed everything.

Black Friday Special

Black Friday: you either love it or hate it. If you’re in the “love it” party, this post is for you. A lot of the deals haven’t been announced yet… but I’m all for spreading the word on a great deal, so here’s what I’ve found so far (and if you know about more, feel free to mention them in the comments!). Bloomingdale’s is opening at 7am on Black Friday and will have steal-deals, like 25% off women’s denim. However, they’ve started their deals already–including the designer handbag sale–in-store and online, so get shopping! Shopbop.com also started their sales earlier …
