I'm not shopping on Black Friday this year. Why? Well, I remember, back in high school, coming home from Halloween parties, switching on the TV and seeing the first Christmas commercials of the year. I'd roll my eyes and think, "What about Thanksgiving?" These days, Christmas commercials start in early October (I'm looking at you Kmart) and Thanksgiving is completely passed over in favor of the almighty dollar.
I've never been a fan of stores opening at midnight after Thanksgiving- who wants to go to work immediately following a tryptophan-filled dinner or freeze in a line of bargain shoppers ready to trample you for a flat screen? This year, Black Friday doesn't start at midnight. It starts at 5 PM on Thursday. Right around the time when most Americans would be sitting down with their families to enjoy a long, leisurely dinner, employees of Toys R Us will be at work so that moms can save $4 on a Pokemon toy.

On Friday, Elissa and Renata invited me to go check out our friend Sophie Hughes' new South End store, Ore. I hadn't been feeling that great but I figured a girl's afternoon would cheer me up! Besides, whats more fun than an autumn afternoon in the city? The cold weather hasn't left me too inspired but I dug deep into my closet for some old pieces to re-imagine for fall.

Exploring Harvard Square on a cloudy, autumn day felt like the perfect time to break out my new red jeans, some stripes and booties. Unfortunately, I forgot to take into account the wind and quickly had to fetch my old trench coat out of my car. But even the chill couldn't take away from such a gorgeous fall afternoon.

Jennifer Lawrence cropped her hair to a pixie cut but with the Hunger Games: Catching Fire hitting theaters in a few weeks I thought it would be a great time to share how to get Katniss' braid! The lovely Graziella Lembo of SalonCapri Boston interpreted Katniss' Victory Tour style as a nine strand crown braid!
