The sales around this time of year bring back memories of going shopping back in the day with my old bestie. Our shopping spree would slowly start right around this time and go full force from Black Friday till February. We would excitedly hunt for all of our favorite key items that we had anxiously been waiting to get at a much better deal, all the while hoping that they’d still have our sizes. This would be a whole day affair that culminated in a victory dinner at one of our favorite restaurants afterwords. She somehow was always able to score the better deals though and our evening conversations would include me lamenting how I should have bought this or that or feeling buyer's remorse for paying full price (regrettably, most things that I like rarely ever seem to go on sale). And when I’d leave the item and say to myself, 'I’ll wait till it goes on sale', the stores would either be out of it or what’s left would never be in my size. Eventually, we both realized from all of our shopping excursions together, that it wasn’t the wisest choice for me to leave any favorite items that weren’t on sale behind as I was never fortunate enough to find them again. So when I did find something that I truly loved, she would say to me “you better buy it, you know you won’t find it again”. Today as an ode to a very nostalgic time, I’d like to feature the top favorite stores that always made our shopping list and my favorite picks from each one.
