Intern Craig's picks for Black Friday

After proving to myself that I could camp out overnight outside of a store last week, I think I'm going to be one of those crazies that stalks the door busters this Black Friday. A lot of stores are being really hush-hush this year but I utilized my Nancy Drew skills and found my favorite sales this year.

40% off everything until noon

Express and I have an odd relationship. We were best friends in high school. After graduation, Express changed and started acting like an Ed Hardy wannabe. I was heartbroken and shacked up with J. Crew, who is now my true love. Today, Express and I have managed to slowly become friends again. I salivated on all of the men's cardigans this past season. While I will never be 100% comfortable wearing a huge lion on my chest, Express is typically reasonably priced and perfectly sized.

50% off almost everything, midnight to 10am!

Like Express, Gap and I were caught in a tumultuous relationship for most of my adolescent life. Once Patrick Robinson took over, I've been in love. I think he's totally updated the brand without losing its values. And OMG I WANT GAP SWEATERS. If you knew me in real life, you would know that I have a terrible addiction to sweaters. In fact, if the Betty Ford Center offered a program for sweater addiction, I'd check myself in and room with Lindsay Lohan so we can both work on ourselves. I own many Gap sweaters including a fantastic gray striped cowl-necked cardigan from last year that is so unbelievably soft and comfortable. I could live in it but I don't want to neglect my 10,000 other sweaters.

Buy Two, Get One Free

As someone who feels the need to change scents every season (if cologne was cheaper, I'd change it every month), I am a regular at the 34th Street Perfumania. I love their back catalog of fragrances, including those not commonly found in stores. Laugh if you will, but it's incredibly difficult to find Paris Hilton for Men anywhere today! Perfumania is also the only store where you can find all of Britney Spears' perfumes including the special edition ones like Curious in Control and Curious Heart.

As you can tell, I'm probably not going to be staking out for high-priced ticket items like televisions but I am tempted by Kmart's promise of a trampoline that lights up for $225. Do you think my landlord would mind?

Thanks, Intern Craig! I will hit the Gap online sale. I am going to stock up on some Gap cashmere.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at Fashion Herald!
