{SHOP} Cyber Monday Deals

I've done a good job of avoiding work/my computer/the internet/shopping hysteria since the Thanksgiving holiday. I wanted to give myself pause to actually rest and spend time with my friends and chosen family in New York (though I wish I could have also been with my biological family in Los Angeles), and detach from my everyday life. Hosting an 8-person dinner in your New York City apartment is one way to force yourself into solid, blissful distraction.

Of course, now it's Monday, time to catch up on the emails I've steadily ignored over the last 5-days, and get to work... but not before I take a peek at some of the serious online deals happening courtesy of Cyber Monday. Below, are my favorite sales happening right now. If you're doing holiday shopping (or just want to splurge a little for yourself,) consider this your go-to guide.

NET-A-PORTER I have mentioned this before, and I really, truly mean it: The Net-a-Porter bi-annual sale is one of my favorite shopping events of the year. It is my go-to sale for high-end shoes, occasion pieces, and the fancy designer pieces I have lusted after all year long. It's my Number 1 destination for self-indulgence, and absolute intention in also finding gifts for my mom and sister. The sale is currently up to 50% off; no codes necessary.

GAP I've recently reacquainted myself with Gap, and have been solidly impressed with their updated takes on classic, American silhouettes. Huge bonus for offering nearly all their styles up to an XXL & size 20. Use code "CYBER" for 40% off your entire purchase at Gap & Banana Republic; the code also extends to 30% off at Piperlime and Old Navy.

C. WONDER C. Wonder's whimsical, colorful world is practically made for gifting. C. Wonder lets me safely indulge in my deeply sublimated preppy side. Use code "GIFTS40" for 40% off sitewide. From cheeky sweaters to the most display worthy glasses-sets, there's tons of both practical and wishlist-worthy pieces to choose from.

LES NOUVELLES Les Nouvelles is pretty new to me, but I just made my first purchase from them on Friday while taking advantage of their current sale on a piece I've been coveting by Shourouk. Using the code "CharlieBrown" you can get 25% off the entire site, including their selection of already-marked-down pieces!

This is kind of a "duh" one for me to include, but what kind of friend would I be if I didn't alert you to the 30% off sitewide (including sale items) savings at ASOS? Check out with the code "GIMME30". PS - yes, the pink coat is currently in stock in all sizes! 

MODCLOTH A sizable portion of my wardrobe comes from Modcloth, which is probably not surprising considering their massive selection of vintage-inspired pieces at affordable prices. Their enormous sale includes a full size run (from XS-4XL), and up to 50% off current-season stock, plus get 20% off sitewide on full-price and sale items with the code ROBOPUG

MODA OPERANDI If you're not already familiar with Moda Operandi, it's basically the Hermes of Flash Sale Sites, and sometimes they even really stock Hermes. With both trunk-shows and current-season boutique items, Moda Operandi doesn't really include "sale" as part of its schtick. Their infrequent sales are something of a needly in a haystack, so embrace savings up to 40% on select pre-fall and fall/winter merchandise, no codes necessary. Discount is reflected at checkout.

FURBISH STUDIO I always swoon and imagine a home where I have at least 3 more rooms to furnish whenever I find myself browsing Furbish Studio, an eclectic-cool shop with a focus on interiors. Use code "MONDAYMADNESS" for 25% off everything, plus, orders over $100 ship for free.

NORDSTROM Of course one of my favorite department stores is one of the only ones not located in NYC, but I'm so happy that I can still take advantage of the savings (in some cases, up to 65% on current-season, designer collections included) from the comfort of my own home. Nordstrom has been hosting exclusive deals on some of their favorites, which, conveniently, happen to be my favorites, as well (like these FRENDS headphones). Plus, if you (or someone on your gift list) is a beauty junkie, they have dozens of exclusive gifts with purchase, (and trust me, there are some really good ones).
