ALL IN BLACK, FRIDAY

Ready for Black Friday?!?!?!

 'What-black-day?' -for those who live across the pond or in a normal county, it's a day here that a majority of people go nuts and run amuck for their Christmas needs and hopefully find them on special price, or they show just plain greed by buying things they don't need. I myself never par take in the madness and often don't even work?!?!?! WHAT?!? Tis true. Even though our store doesn't get crazy, we can't get much done on the floor, so we just take a three day weekend. Besides that, I most times shop local small business when I can. Hope most of you had a lovely Thanksgiving feast?! My family had a good reunion no fighting, griping or not getting along . No... we all drink! I was going to post some Thanksgiving photos, but simply can't handle another "Turkey/Thanksgiving' post at the moment~ my waistline needs a break from the 'thirds I had!!! I told you my aunt was a good cook! No more turkey for now at least. Anywayyy...In honor of the Black Friday, here is one of my favorite women. Carmen Dell'Orefice...a stunning woman who still models and did I mention she is 88!!!! Carmen was a huge supermodel, before supermodel was coined. Just a beautiful woman..strong, vibrant and not afraid to have some fun.
Meanwhile, the Mistress will be off til Tuesday off visiting the ancestral home, and then some friends I haven't seen in an age. I'll return next week after a short break..so have a lovely weekend!!!

What will you be doing this Black Friday?

  3. I will be in hiding. With the way the climate is today, Black Friday sounds like open season on my kind :) We will be getting rain for the next few days. YAY!
    With that name, I thought this was going to be another drag post. That woman looks better at 88 than I did at 28! Enjoy your time away, Maddie.

  11. Carmen Dell'Orefice is fantabulosa! I have been a follower of the Advanced Style blog for many years, and it still astounds me how many glamorous older people there are out there. Jx

    PS as for bloody Black Friday, it's yet another American trend that has unfortunately crossed the pond. I ignore it, of course. Our own Consumer Association Which has done a survey, and found most of the "deals" on offer from numerous outlets are bogus.

    1. Your right dear. Most retailers even mark the price up and then do a discount. They aren't losing money at all. Im sure our poor selling specialist will hear groaning all day since we had just out usual sale. Thank goodness for luxury. I also had the feeling you'd love Carmen. Imagine having a cock-a-tail with her and dear Iris Aprel!!!!!

    Carmen is GORGEGOUS!

  14. we went to a movie today at the mall; the place/parking lot was quite quiet. Perhaps people are staying home shopping on line these days.

  15. God! She’s stunning!
    We took Metra into the city! We went to The AI to see an Andy Warhol exhibit and went to one of my fav restaurants. No shopping. I refuse to pay full price for anything. If I buy, I buy clearance! LoL

    XoXo .

  16. Oh, those cheekbones! Hope you're having a great long weekend. I always avoided shopping from Black Friday on. Shopping was best way to get OUT of the holiday spirit.

    1. As extroverted as I am, I can't take crowds or people most days. Especially greety ones.

  17. We hid out all day. Did not venture into a single store. Stayed safe from the madding crowd, as it were.
    Hope you're enjoying the weekend. What am I saying?!? Of course you are!

    I did a few shopping items on my list, but I do all my shopping down here in the city, We have some interesting shops, and local owned.
