We always enjoy the dispatches from Racked NY's anonymous department store clerk, and her Black Friday recap is no different. A taste: "It is, in a sense, perversely wonderful to see a bunch of Diane von Furstenberg, Rag and Bone, Rachel Zoe, and Elizabeth and James clothes thrown about haplessly. It shows that people are excited to shop. I just wish it was more?dignified." Agreed! [Racked NY]
