Monday Memo No. 68: CYBER MONDAY SHOPPING!
It’s literally the only Monday we look forward to all year! Today is Cyber Monday, the perfect day for actually buying the things you’ve been saving in a Google Doc “just in case.” Because essentially the entire internet is on sale, I’ve taken the liberty of culling the sales down into my absolute favorites, the ones I really don’t want you to miss. So check out the full list here, and keep reading below for my favorite Cyber Monday sale picks, plus everything that’s coming home with ME this year.
You’ve seen me single the praises of my beloved YSL cardholder many times, but today it’s on sale at Ssense! You’ll carry it everywhere, might as well get a deal on it. While I’m on the topic of YSL—this bag that’ll complete the vast majority of outfits currently percolating in your closet is over 30% off right now.
Today I’m stocking up on my favorite concealer that I discovered about a year ago and have been using nonstop since. It’s by Wander Beauty and I use shade “light.” It’s 30% off right now which is a markdown too good to pass up on something you use literally every day. Dermstore also has a litany of good deals today, including this boscia gift for every lady on your list, and Weleda baby items for her royal highness. I also scored a solid restocking of my Elemis products for 20% off! Are we sure today isn’t Christmas? It feels like Christmas.
You’ve read all about my love for Sarah Flint’s perfect footwear all year long. Now take advantage of this rare deal: Today, you can take an additional $50 off every pair you purchase if you buy two pairs or more! Every pair you purchase. I got this incredibly comfortable and waterproof pair, and my mom got both these and these.
Naturally I anticipated some of our beloved frocks from the last month going on sale today. I am happy to report that ALL of the following are on sale for your shopping pleasure:
Neiman Marcus’ silk robe will score you a $50-$750 gift card when you purchase it! The same thing goes for this dotted LBD I love for date night. (Among other things, it’s a really smart, effortless purchase.)
This tie neck dress by Jason Wu is...wait for it...50% off! Solve your holiday party styling situation with one absolutely stunning red dress. Go.
The Rixo sequined sparkler I love for NYE is 40% off, which is more than enough convincing required for a dress of this wattage if you ask me.
Do not sleep on this Ulla Johnson Jacquard Knit Dress currently majorly discounted on Intermix. You will get so much wear out of this throughout the winter season, it’s kinda silly not to take advantage of this.
There’s literally no one on your list who wouldn’t be delighted to receive a fluffy, cozy Barefoot Dreams blanket this year. At the moment, they’re 30% off, which is literally like Nordstrom rolling out the red carpet for you to finish your holiday shopping in one go. I love the Almond and White colorways, but there’s a pretty blue option too!
While they might be sold out in many other locations, they’re still in stock and included in the Cyber Monday sale on Shopbop! The overall discount depends on how much you spend, but stocking up on these perfect holiday scents is an easy way to increase your total, and your total discount. The trio makes an amazing hostess gift by the way!
I don’t participate in winter without Sorel. I've worn these glorious slippers constantly over the past many months and love them because they have a substantial sole which provides plenty of support if you’re on your feet around the house for extended periods of time. As I am now a professional baby soother, I appreciate this.
Yes, it’s the mother of all Cyber Monday deal sites, but don’t let it overwhelm you. Just stick to the unskippable items. For example: The Echo Dot is 56% (that’s a lot) off. The Instant Pot (nom nom nom) is 54% off. Roomba’s are 33% off which just sounds entertaining. My FAVORITE hairspray is 53% off! (Seriously, take a spin around the beauty deals, you won’t regret it.) The point is, if you need it, it’s probably on sale on Amazon. Review your lists, see what’s marked down, and go forth through checkout with confidence.
