Black Friday: Time to Fall in Love with Capitalism 😍

Black Friday is an extremely interesting concept and each year the day of sales intensifies. Growing up I remember Black Friday deals starting at the early hours of 5am on Friday. However, a couple years ago I worked Thanksgiving day and Black Friday at a local Abercrombie and Fitch :). We’re trained to anticipate “crazy deals” to kick off the intense retail holiday season when in reality, the discounts given are generally low par. The only way this day is beneficial to the average consumer is if they had a premeditated need for the product. So if you don’t need it don’t fall for it! Anyways, here’s a list of some deals from places of love.

 

And yes, I *need* makeup.

 

Morphe: 25% off

Coastal Scents: Up to 70% off

Missguided: 50% off with code: useme

Simmi London: 25% off

Oh Polly: 50% off site wide

Nordstrom: Up to 60% off

H&M: 30% off in stores and online

Ulta: Door busters @ $15, $20, & $25

 

F.O.T.D: My Favorite Pair of Shoes

Today’s F.O.T.D. is dedicated to my favorite pair of shoes.. these thigh high, strappy heels from Pretty Little Thing. These heels take, no exaggeration, 20 minutes to get in but they’re sooo worth it. The intricate strap detail makes it super unique and wearable for multiple looks.

The rest of the outfit is super simple. I found a plain black long sleeve t-shirt and cut up a pair of boyfriend jeans from H&M that had split beyond repair.
