HEY HEY kids! Whose ready to get back into action? I know I missed you all greatly as I assumed my holiday roles. I must tell you thanksgiving dinner was a blast! I think this was the best one yet! It was a intimate time with my family, which I enjoyed and I even got to go to bed early, while the rest of my family went out to get black friday deals at midnight.
I'm a bit more traditional in my black friday madness, what's the point of having it at midnight when you can have it at 4AM where everyone is full on carbs and deranged from sleep deprivations. That's were the REAL FUN begins. That's what me and my friends did anyway. I hit up all the haunts, Urban, Topshop, H&M, American Apparel, hoping to get an AWESOME SAUCE deal. I even drop some money like it ain't no thang, but then once the hysteria was over I was like "Who am I kidding? I don't need all this...stuff...."
I felt myself buying, just to buy, versus items that can accentuate my wardrobe, and said "YES THIS IS SO BIANCA" I was just buying things just to have them, and outside of UO, the sales weren't that miraculous.
SO. I RETURNED EVERYTHING, except gifts and what I actually felt i needed/wanted. And I felt SO MUCH BETTER. Plus, on saturday, I did what I should have done, went THRIFTING and found some AMAZING PIECES. (Yes, the thriftstore is having a holiday sale THROUGH the weekend, everything 50% off!)
I found that original vintage Pendleton sweater $1.45, and that Anne Klein extra soft piece? $5! Plus all those Urban shoes, five bucks each! Yes, I think I did much better, than feeling I needed to buy a bunch of not that great stuff because everyone else was. I thought it would be fun to do a little Sunday Inspo by taking my favorite thrift & black friday finds and imagining some possible looks!
I learned my lesson this year, from now on, I won't believe the hype but I'll follow my heart! ♥
