Hello Everyone! Today I wanted to share with you a couple of things that I picked up during Black Friday! I will probably never do Black Friday again, but I wanted to go just for the experience.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving where a lot of big retailers open at 12AM (or earlier) and have major sales. In simpler terms, Black Friday is when stores open early and people go crazy trying to buy stuff and it's the biggest shopping day of the year!
Some of the stores that I went to was Forever21, American Eagle, Claires, New York and Company, and Victoria Secret... The rest of the stores were too busy to get into.

I got this hoodie from American Eagle from the clearance section, and the whole store was an addtional 40% off! So cute! I love the color combination and it's very comfy and casual!
I also got this from American Eagle from the clearance section and also got an additional 40% off :) I love the peek a boo lace detailing! It's not too revealing and it'll look great with some black leggings and boots!
I got this big chunky sweater from NY&CO, this was 50% off! I got this in an XS but it still fits loose. I love the simple detailing of sweater and the bright hot pink color!
From NY&CO, this detailed navy blue button up was 70% off!!! I love the studded collar and cuffs!!! The material is also very sheer and breathable. I love the edginess and the chicness of this shirt :)
This was also 50% off from NY&CO. I love the geometric design of this blouse because it makes me look thinner! hehe! I also love the color combination, nude mixed with black is very classy! :)
I got these chocolate brown combat boots from Forever 21, They deducted $10 and had an additional 20% off at the register. I love them! They fit comfortable and I love the grungy boyish feel to them, makes me feel like a bad ass, haha. :)
These are a couple of jewelry pieces that I picked up from F21. I gravitated towards geometric shapes this year. So when I saw the necklace and the earrings, I grabbed them ASAP! The studs are also classic earrings that every girl should have!
I picked up two bras from Victoria Secret, they had a buy one get one half off. I love how their PINK bras are so soft, and they also always have really cute designs!
From Claire's I bought 2 hair donuts and hair ties, it was buy 2 get 1 free!
Overall I saved a total of $140! But it wasn't worth the 12am-5am shift at the mall. Too many people and extremely long lines! I did however met really cool people in the lines and everyone was so sweet and nice that day regardless of all the hectic frenzy!
If you didn't go out shopping for Black Friday, don't worry, Cyber Monday is today!
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving where most online retailers provide great sales! It's less hectic from Black Friday because you can do it from the comfort of your own home, and most of the sales that occurred during Black Friday will most happen during Cyber Monday as well.
My suggestion for you is write a list of things that you want to buy, and find the website that offers the best deal!
Happy Shopping Everyone! -Vanessa Jhoy
