Panama's First Black Friday

Summer Fashion Summer Fashion  

Friday November 23, 2012

For the first time ever, Panama decided to celebrate Black Friday!! YAI! Many stores had sales and special discounts today, so of course I hit the mall early in the morning. I was hoping to buy a new camera and video camera (since mine got stolen), but they actually ran out before I even got there... Bummer!

**Note: I kind of liked these photos out of focus! They kind of look artistic somehow ;)


I still enjoyed walking around the mall with my mom and sister though. I did score a new jumpsuit and some accessories on sale, so it wasn't all that bad :)

Did you do any Black Friday shopping this year?

  1. Wearing white on black friday... how daring! ;) haha, but you look so comfy and cute, and I really do love your hair! I'm sorry you didn't find any good deals on cameras, but I'm sure that it's a sign that a better camera will be in store for you in the future. :)

  4. I only went out shopping to get gifts for my niece and nephews but I got all gifts under $100 which I think isn't too bad for kids gifts! 
    Cute dress by the way- love the back! :)

  8. Love the colour combination of this outfit, the white and the blue/green nails/jewelry, looking great! Too bad you didn't find any good deals on cameras, but I'm glad you found some other nice things :) We don't have Black Friday over here... Which is probably better for my bank account, haha ;)

  27. How cool you got to enjoy Black Friday! In Brazil, we also had our first Black Friday ever, but my mom told me it turned out a disaster - apparently the stores had raised their prices previously, to give fake discounts afterwards :(  Love your espadrillas! xx

  28. I read about your family getting robbed that is horrible! Material things are replaceable all that matters is that your family is okay.

    ahhh black friday is spreading! hahaha You sure have to camp out early to get a good deal on electronics....some people get crazy over here...so I never shop during Black friday.

  29. Glad you had fun - I don't much like braving the crowds on black friday, and too bad you couldn't get a camera. I'm sure there will be more sales before the holiday shopping is done though!

  34.  Hi Paula! Oh dear, that doesn't sound like a fun Black Friday at all. I'm so sorry about that!! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog btw!

    ReplyDelete
  35.  Thank you Eliz, I appreciate your kind words regarding the robbery. Yeah, I was too late to get my camera! I guess I should have gotten there earlier. I remember Black Friday was CRAZY in the U.S.! I can see why you wouldn't shop ;)

  36.  Hi Lyddie! Yeah, I remember just how crazy the crowds can be on Black Friday! I wouldn't want to shop like that either. Thanks for your sweet comment!
