I had a nightmare about black Friday last night. I guess you know you are in retail when shopping wakes you up at night in a cold sweat. In my dream our computer failed and people were getting angry because they couldn't check out. I ended up just locking people in the store so that they wouldn't leave before I could get my computer fixed. Just for future reference, don't lock people in anywhere. A hostage situation is not the best sales tactic. 

So I got to wash my hair this morning, which was good because it was starting to dread. Red dreads -- you'd still read my blog right?

    LOL @ the Black Friday nightmare. I remember working retail.  I'm glad I don't have to brave the mad house. Getting up at 4:30/5am, to be at the store by 6 am, to open by 7am I'm tired just thinking about it. (^_^)

  45. I've worked Black Friday for the past 5 years, and I gotta say, the day itself is a nightmare. Goodluck! Stop by my blog if you have the chance, currently featuring a DIY pink glittery pumpkin, my floral crown, a cat print dress, and a give-away!

  47. I love the reddish hair!  Subtle but enough to make a difference (unlike my college days when red had to be RED).  Beautiful!  And, like everyone else here, I'm loving those boots.

  48. So crushing on this whole outfit. The pop of green on the bag and sweater is perfect.

    And as one redhead to now another...I LOVE it on you!

  51. I joked about the hair yesterday, but I guess it really is a big change because I almost didn't recognize you in my Bloglovin' feed. I was all "who is THAT and when did I subscribe?" But it's you. Also, my blog may or may not also be showing off a gingham button-up under a sweater look today. Coinky-dink.

    Also, maybe don't lock people in the store Friday.  Unless you have to, of course, then do what you gotta do.

  70. The thing I love most about your outfit posts is you teach me different ways to wear the pieces I buy. When I buy something now, I think of a multitude of ways I can wear it, instead of one specific look. I admire your mix and mingle skill, as well as your choice in pieces. Just wanted to let you know you're my fashion hero. Thanks for looking awesome!

  72. Oh my, you made me laugh with this, I use to work retail and I would always have this same nightmare right before Black Friday. (That and customers with chainsaws.  Terrifying.)   Also, how fun is red hair?  I just went from brown to red and it is just insanely fun.  The red looks quite lovely on you, it's very flattering on your skin-tone and looks gorgeous  (And good luck with Black Friday, is Black Friday or  the Small Business Saturday usually busier for you and your shop?)
