    Black Friday Sale Alert: ShopBop

    November 24, 2015


    I don’t know about you guys, but Black Friday shopping always tends to be more for buying gifts for myself rather than for friends and family. That probably deserves some judgement, so roll those eyes, but I tend to feel more like I need a discount when buying things for me, whereas when I buy gifts for others, I loosen up the budget. No matter who the shopping spree is for, get ready because this is your big chance!

    Because with this sale the more you spend the more you save, it’s a great time to make group purchases with your friends and family! Strategize with a sibling and go in on family gifts together. Grab your BFF and buy matching Christmas purses–no one needs to know.

    ShopBop only does a few sales each year, so this is your last chance to take advantage of some deep discounts before the spring! The best part? You don’t actually have to wait until the craziness of Black Friday to shop. The ShopBop holiday sale is live NOW through November 30.

    As with all ShopBop sales, some brand exclusions do apply, so make sure to check the official terms & conditions page here before you get too excited about one specific item!
