The Tiny Heart: Black Friday

11.26.2012

Black Friday




Hat-AE (similar for $8), Top-Gap, Button Down-H&M, Necklace & Bracelet-c/o Estarer, Pants-Target, Boots-Nordstrom

Did you guys go Black Friday shopping? I barely did any. (I know, what kind of fashion blogger doesn't go shopping on Black Friday?!). Two years ago, I worked in retail. Let me tell you, after you've worked retail on Black Friday, the day is never the same again. I've seen some of the rudest people I've ever met in my life on that day, acting like barbarians over shoes! The store looked like the scene out of Mean Girls when it has gone "full tilt jungle madness". 

So, I prefer to do shopping online on Black Friday. I can shop in my pajamas, don't have to wait on lines, and best of all, I don't have to deal with rude people. 

Do you prefer shopping in the stores or online for Black Friday?

  7. We never dare to shop Black Friday and opted to go Saturday instead. You are so right, they are the most rudest and barbaric people ever ! You look so cute.

  8. This outfit makes me want to stay home and snuggle up to a nice hot cup of cocoa. Love the boots! I didn't dare shop on Black Friday. Did it once...almost got squashed. At 5' tall, it's not a good idea for me to take on a mob of shoppers...LOL!

    seriously, i am in love with your outfit. i'm about to go buy all of it!!!

  11. I love your pants! What a cute look. I like to shop in stores, but only when it's not busy so I guess for black friday and all the craziness, I definitely prefer to be at home and online.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hear ya! After working retail, and braving the sales a few years ago, I have vowed to never go out shopping on Black Friday again! I just bought 2 things from home :)

    Love the color of those pants! Very cute.

  18. I avoided the stores on Black Friday, after I found out I had the day off all I wanted to do was sleep in, lol!

    I love the color of your jeans and the striped sweater is lovely!

  19. I love your jeans and what a cute hat! :) I was in Best Buy's line for 3 hours with temperatures under 35 degrees... no success either LOL ;) I told myself I will not be that crazy next year but who knows ;)

  20. LOVE this outfit! Especially the jeans! My mom, sister and I always go Black Friday shopping. This year we were out at 5am! Got lots of great deals - even after I worked in retail for over 5 years I still go! Love a good deal haha

  21. i used to go, but it used to be nicer. in the past 5-10 years, it has gotten way out of hand, so to me it's not worth it. i will shop online today, though!! i love your cozy outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love this cozy outfit:) Working retail during the holidays is the worst. I definitely don't miss it. I did some online shopping on Friday and some local business shopping on Saturday, but otherwise I sat this year out.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I hear ya sister! I worked retail for five years. I will never go Black Friday shopping. I love your hat and jeans today!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I worked at Toys-R-Us for 4 years - the mecca of Black Friday craziness. My last year there before I left for a big girl internship, I worked a 16 hour shift on Black Friday. Yeah, I really feel for those employees working!
    So if I do go out that day, it's Friday evening when things have died down. There is a good chance what I'm looking for they'll still have it... and if they don't it wasn't meant to be!

    Online shopping is the best though!

  29. Definitely prefer online shopping. My husband and I did go out, after 3pm on Black Friday, the stores weren't crazy and the deals were still there, so there was no need to join the craziness.

    I was pretty disappointed with the stores that tried to lure shoppers in on Thanksgiving! I feel bad for the employees who had to leave their families on Thanksgiving to deal with rude people.

  30. Love this outfit, and I didn't do any shopping on black Friday, agreed with everything you said, people are down right mean on black Friday.

  31. Aww... can you look cuter than this, Sharon?! I love that pastel-ish top with those beautiful green jeans, the contrast is gorgeous! I also worked for retail one holiday season many years ago, and I totally understand the madness you talk about! Lately, I've done a lot of my shopping online and black Friday wasn't the exception this year!

  34. I didn't go shopping on Black Friday - it tends to be a little too crazy for me. I'd much rather shop online for Cyber Monday. I think the deals are better anyway! Loving the colored jeans - I'm wearing an incredibly similar pair today! Happy Monday!

  36. Love this outfit! Cute beanie and skinnies. :)

    Normally I would go out to shop Black Friday but this year I decided to stay indoors and do everything online. BEST DECISION ever! haha... way more warmer and not having to deal with rude crabby people is so nice. :)

  40. Ughhh...I can't even imagine working Black Friday. I feel bad for everyone who has to. People are so, so rude...especially when it comes to parking! Good grief.

    Glad you were able to get some online shopping done.

    Love your cute hat!

  41. Cute look, I love those green jeans! I don't blame you for not shopping on Black Friday. I rarely do either--I hate the crowds! I went to a few stores this time, but not until the afternoon and only because it was in my husband's small hometown. No crowds!

    ReplyDelete
  42. so cute, as always! love the hat!

  43. Are you so cute! I love your little beanie and even though I have like 8 pair of boots, I can't help but want those too!

  52. In Canada, lots of places are participating in Black Friday and I agree, online shopping is much more attractive!

  62. In Canada we really started good Black Friday sales this year - and I'm kinda sad to say I missed it. It wasn't popular enough for that kind of craziness just yet, but I'm sure once more and more people start catching on it'll get pretty ugly :(
    Cute look though - you look so cozy!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I didn't do any true shopping either, we did go to one of the larger shopping malls but window shopped :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Right?! Once you've worked retail, you never look at Black Friday the same way again. People lose their minds. :P

    I am in love with necklace you have on! I've been looking for a spiky necklace and this one has a cool, almost a sophisticated barbwire look going on. It's really cool looking! And your cold weather look is flat out adorable, the green pants with the little striped shirt, brown boots and the cozy hat is too cute for words!

  74. Sharon your outfits are simple and adorable....love you in a hat. I was the nut in Kohl's. The lines were to the back of the store. BUT, when I went to purchase some special towels for a friend who has recently found out she has cancer, the seas parted and when I walked up to the line, I did a double take, no one in line???? I asked the guy standing there, an employee, is this the line, he said yeah! I was thanking God, it was an early Christmas miracle, for real. When I looked to the other side of the store, the line was to the back of the store...unbelievable. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  75. I've worked on Black Friday before but that didn't weaken my love for stuff. I still shop in my pj's but I refuse to beat up little old ladies. Love your hat! I've been looking for one like that for forever!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I used to work retail when I was younger and Black Friday is scary. Like a warzone. The way you described it made me literally laugh out loud haha Nothing can really hold me back from shopping (except for maybe the having the flu lol) so black friday didn't hold me back!

    I love the look...I am currently obsessed with colored jeans and of course stripes. So cute!

    Thanks for stopping by and showing love, your comment means a lot!
