It’s the most horrifying time of the year, Black Friday! If you’re insane, it’s possible you’ve actually trekked outside to a brick-and-mortar store and deeply regret that decision, but if you’re not, you’re probably at home eating turkey sandwiches and trying to beat your brother at Trivial Pursuit. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, here are some things you can get this weekend without sacrificing your reclining position.

All of the products listed below are from retailers with whom we have affiliate accounts, which means we get a kickback on what you spend.

  1. yo girl, i thought that set of acrylics was a box of cigars when i first looked at it. blame it on the bourbon or the reefer but whatever.
    awesome either way.

    hello intern baby, my name is gabby. how the hell are you? thanks for this guide.

  2. Thank you (and modcloth) for my brand new sapphire blue dress. I am one of those crazy shoppers (I used to consider it my extreme sport and I ended up working as an emergancy prop shopper for film companies, so…), but I rarely buy anything (I’m just oddly amused by the crazy shoppers. This means I rarely stand in line because I never need to by a hot ticket item.) I also like to cheer up staff.

    I do, however, always buy a pair of hot shoes I never could have afforded otherwise, the occassional game/movie and a few gifts/necessities I couldn’t afford any other time. This year it was a rocking pair of 6 inch heels (though I almost got studded military boots #hardfemmeproblems) and a copy of Pikmin 2 because I want to play an adorable video game. I also made four store clerks genuinely laugh, so it was a success.

  3. Off topic, but it kills me that the girl in the Torrid banner is considered “plus sized”. I mean really?

  4. how adorbs are those dotty underpants? they are not my style, but i would really love to see them on someone else, ahem.
