Black Friday Accessories Edit

My fellow Europeans and I have many reasons to be thankful for America. Reese’s Pieces, Ryan Gosling, J.Crew, Marc Jacobs… The list goes on. One Stateside-gone-global traditional I am exceedingly thankful for today is Black Friday, an annual event that takes place, appropriately, the Friday after Thanksgiving. For those of you who, like me, had always been slightly puzzled by the concept here’s the down low. The term “Black Friday”, hails back to the 1864 US stock-market panic set off by plunging gold prices. Headline hungry journos in Philadelphia reappropriated the phrase in the late 1960s to describe the rush of crowds at stores, later justifying their sound bite poaching by claiming it referred to accounting balance sheets where black ink would represent a profit. Since then, Black Friday has become an unofficial (but totally official) nationwide retail holiday and I, for one, think it’s genius. Before anyone gets up in arms, I’m certainly not condoning in-store stampedes or any sort of shopping induced violence but the idea of one day where that handbag of dreams is on sale for no apparent reason is pretty awesome. Plus if you do it online, as is the point of this here post, you’re infinitely less likely to get trampled. So, in celebration of this sartorial spectacular, Monnier Freres are offering a whopping 30% discount on everything… Yep, you heard right, E-V-E-R-Y-TH-I-N-G!
