Wallet Damage - Black Friday Edition

Hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day!  Though we didn't have the typical turkey dinner, I was stuffed to the gills with hot pot :)

I visited the outlet mall on Thanksgiving Eve and then I did all the rest of my shopping online.  I contemplated going to the outlet (different one) @ 3 am for Black Friday (in my head this meant I could get deals without being super jam-packed) but then it started to snow.  I avoid driving in snow if I can so this meant no in-store shopping.  Despite this, I still managed to do quite a bit of damage to the wallet but also finish my Christmas shopping.

J. Crew Factory Store (on Thanksgiving Eve): (sorry for the elongated photos, I think I accidentally did "free resize" instead of the one where you maintain proportions.)

  • Long Knit Holland Blazer, Grey, Sz 2 (smallest size available - it's a tiny bit big in the chest and waist but still has a slim silhouette) $28
  • Shawl Cardigan, Navy Blue, XS, $31.50

Ann Taylor (online):

Sephora (online):  Not technically on super sale, but I had a gift card to use up.

  •  SEPHORA COLLECTION/Colorful Mono Eyeshadow/Creme Caramel 11
  •  SEPHORA COLLECTION/Coconut Cream Bath Collection/5 oz Coconut Cream Dry Oil Spray - I LOVE this!  It's a perfect body moisturizer for lazy people (me) bc you just spray and briefly rub.

Phew!  I also bought some additional Gucci shoes from DSW when they restocked online yesterday morning but I'll save that for a separate post.  What kind of wallet damage did you do?


  1. Wow a lot of people had hot pot for Thanksgiving! :D I love the pumps and the ruffled tank : )

  2. You did great!!!! Can't wait to see your additional DSW haul. :)

  3. OMG you bought all that!!! you did some damage. i just placed an order on AT too. heehee. i love the silk grey blouse and the white tiered tank you got.

  4. You did great! My husband and I also went to the Cincinnati Premium Outlet last night. We made it there around 1:00 in the morning. It was snowing and raining at the same time so the drive was a bit tough. I did some damages to my wallet too. The worst part is we bought stuff for ourselves instead of shop for other people :) I think I had 3 hours of sleep last night.

  5. What a shopping success! You definitely took advantage of all the deals. I'm sure your wallet is hurting, but not hurting as badly as normal, so it's ok!

  6. WOW you did a lot of damage :) Really glad you had some great deals and had a yummy Thanksgiving dinner too.

  7. that ruffle tank is so pretty and a deal! looking forward to seeing a review on it!

  8. you found some great buys!! I braved the outlets but didn't end up doing much damage to my wallet until I hit up the mall in the morning. I love that Kohl's ruffle tier top you found. and $10 is a steal!!

  9. I had hot pot for Thanksgiving dinner too hehe... it was soooo good since we haven't had it in a while. Looks like you took care of some Christmas shopping! :)

  10. TLDP - I hadn't realized that hot pot was so popular for Thanksgiving - it was rather funny!

    Elle - Thanks! My additional haul has yet to ship so I'm a little worried that my order will get canceled :(

    Ping - LOL - I definitely did some serious damage!

    PLG - Did you wind up getting much from Cole Haan? I was really itching to go but the weather was such a deterrent.

    Cee - Thanks for the reassurance :) I did mostly buy things on super sale that I more or less "needed". LOL. At least hubby and son are taken care of for gifts!

    C&P - LOL - thanks!

    Olyvia - Thanks! I can't wait till everything gets here.

    Kileen - I saw you had a haul posting - I'm going to check it out right after this!

    PXXS - Yay for hot pot! It is the perfect dinner for a cold night. I'm definitely set for Christmas gifts! :)

  11. I have those AT pumps but paid way too much for them and now have to sell them cuz they are too big on me:(


I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
