Navigating Black Friday
In an attempt to awaken you from your Tryptophan-induced stupor, the “holiday season” is freakin’ here! Hannukah is happening as we speak, and now Da Da Da.. its SALE SEASON! But even better than getting up early on Black Friday for a little shopping, and getting knocked-out by somebody’s elbows, I suggest you stay at home in your Pj’s and shop my site. Remember the Isabel Marant X H&M sale? I have a black eye from it. And forget getting a parking spot. I’m doing my part and getting out on Small Business Saturday and CyberMonday, too, so today why not stay in?
Because what’s better than NET-A-PORTER? NET-A-PORTER ON SALE! So start flexing your fingers. Batten down the hatches. All in the name of gift-giving.
Here’s my hand-picked list of items I am on the hunt for. As of today, these are all on sale. Good luck with the will power. I don’t have any.
Everything is hyper-linked for your shopping pleasure. Tis’ the season.
