Black Friday HAUL!

Hey Prepsters!

Happy Black Friday! This year was my fifth year going “hardcore” Black Friday shopping. My mom and I drove two hours away to our favorite outlet mall. We hit up all of our favorite stores between 10pm on Thanksgiving and 4am on Black Friday. This year we had a plan of action and I brought along my friend Lindsey. We arrived at the first outlet mall at 9:50pm. Lindsey and I both knew that we had to go to J. Crew Factory first. The stores opened at 10pm. While we were finding a parking spot we noticed that the line outside of J. Crew was extra long… what a drag! However; a sales associate opened the door for Lindsey and I right away. We were the first ones inside! AHHHHHH! Lindsey and I bolted around the store; quickly grabbing our sizes before anyone else. Here is what I made out with:
