If you were following me on Twitter & Instagram, you know that I (along with my best friend) chose to brave the crowds on Black Friday, starting at midnight when the mall opened. While I didn’t find the big ticket items I was searching for (flat riding boots & a leather moto jacket), I did still walk away with some great deals. Since I had some birthday money to spend, I decided to splurge on a few items I’ve been wanting for a while (like the plaid shirt and cargo jacket). Also, this contrast sleeve blazer wasn’t on sale, but was so similar to the J. Crew version I’d been stalking…plus the fit/quality was perfect & I know I can wear it well into the spring, so I didn’t mind the price.
