Hello Beautiful People!
It’s officially one of my favorite days of the year! This was my eighth year partaking in the Black Friday festivities. Every year I head down to the Rehoboth Beach outlets with my mom and do some serious damage. I always look forward to the trip because it’s a great bonding time with my mom, since we are both shopaholics. Also, since we go to Delaware to do our shopping it’s tax-free! We go to buy Christmas gifts for our family. The outlets opened at 6pm this year (on Thanksgiving night). We arrived at 9:30pm and left the last outlet at 3:45am and drove home. This year was a major hit! My mom and I picked out a bunch of things for ourselves as well as my brother and my dad. Today I’ll only be showing you what I purchased myself as well as what my mom purchased as holiday gifts for me. If you would like to see my Black Friday Haul of 2013 you can click here. Enjoy!
*Please Note: I attempted to find links for all items, some are resell. I’m sorry I couldn’t find every single one*
First we hit up Kate Spade. The store was having a 60% off sale, with an additional 20% off handbags. Also, my mom is a teacher and I am a student so we both got an additional 15% off our purchases when we showed them proper identification! My mom loaded herself up with gorgeous readers, some phone cases, and a couple pieces of jewelry. Here is what I picked out:
Gold & Tortoise Skyline Watch – Originally: $225, Discounted: $76.50
Champagne Coin Purse – Originally: $65, Discounted: $22.10
I bought the coin purse for myself (#ImpulseBuy) and my mom bought me the watch, which I’ve been lusting over for practically forever!
Next we hit up Vineyard Vines. They recently upgraded their store so it was significantly larger (which was fantastic). The line was crazy as usual because the store was 50% off (excluding Shep Shirts which were 20% off) and clearance items were 60% off. My mom and I took turns standing in line while each other shopped for my brother and dad. I kid you not, the line took more than an hour. It wrapped around the store! We CLEANED UP for my dad and brother, it was obscene. Here is what I ended up getting:
Whale Magnet – Originally: $6.00, Discounted: $3.00
Fleece Vest (Pink) – Originally: $88, Outlet Price: $69, Discounted: $35
Chambray Whale Shirt – Originally: $60, Discounted: $30
I bought the magnet for myself, since I am not allowed to put stickers on my car I was so excited to buy myself this! My mom bought me the vest and the shirt. I have the same vest in a blue and I wear it all the time, love it! The Chambray shirt is similar to the one pictured above, except the buttons only go halfway down. I couldn’t find it online anywhere. Needless to say I’m obsessed.
After that we popped into Victoria’s Secret for a hot second because I needed to get a refill of my go-to body spray. To my surprise they were 2 for $20 so I also got one that I had my eye on (Yes… just because of the gold packaging… #OCRProblems).
Fresh & Clean Body Mist – Originally: $18.00, Discounted: $10.00
Naughty is Nice Mist – Originally: $15.00, Discounted: $10.00
I’m pumped to try out the limited edition mist; hopefully it will smell as good as it looks!
Next we hit up Nike, mainly to get things for my brother. Some of their sales were good but it was nothing crazy. I ended up getting one thing that I’ve had my eye on for awhile.
Obsessed Infinity Coverup (Gray) – Originally: $80, Outlet Price: $45, Discounted: $35
My mom purchased this for me as a gift. I’m obsessed with whatever that neckline deal is. Can’t wait to rock it.
Afterwards we went to Aerie where I was on the hunt for bralettes. Since the summer time I have become beyond obsessed with them. They are so comfy and are NOT like boob jail #bless. The store was 40% off. Here are the ones I picked out:
Lace Cross Back (Navy) – Originally: $22.95, Discounted: $13.77
Lace Strappy (Black) – Originally: $22.95, Discounted: $13.77
Boho (Cream and Plum) – Originally: $26.95, Discounted: $16.17 [each]
My mom purchased them for me. The GIF below explains my excitement:
My mom and I ran into Yankee Candle and got the 3 for $28 deal on medium candles. We both love the Christmas Cookie scent so we each got those and my mom also got herself a Sparkling Cinnamon.
The last stop before we left was the new Alex and Ani outlet. They were having 15% off sale. I had my eye on my birthstone one for awhile and my mom ended up purchasing it for me.
January Birthstone (Gold): Originally: $28.00, Discounted: $23.80
Overall I had such an amazing time, per usual. I can’t wait for next year! How was your Black Friday? Did you snag any killer deals?
