Cyber Monday is better than black Friday for three reasons...
1. You can shop from your bed
2. You can shop from your couch
3. You can shop with your pup (Notice Nala laying behind me...melts me.)
For someone who thoroughly enjoys being horizontal on something comfy, this kind of shopping is right up my alley. No standing in line, waking up early, or fighting crowds.
The only problem is that there are way too many options online. It can be a #struggle to find the best sales. Narrowing down your shopping cart is a serious challenge for our inner shopaholics. That's where I come in! I want to help you beat the Cyber Monday system. I am breaking the best sales down into three categories for you: clothing, shoes, and (my favorite) accessories. I hope that this guide will leave you with some pretty pieces and more than just pennies left in your bank account.
Threads and Treads
(AKA clothes and shoes)
Since I grew up in a small town with limited boutique options, I have a few favorite stores that I always loved to shop online. ASOS is one of them. The prices are right and there are always SO many options. They have petite, plus, maternity and tall sections so there is no doubt that there will be something that will fit your body type. ASOS is offering 30% off of EVERYTHING with code Epic30, so now is your time to try their items out for yourself. I am linking a few of my top picks below, in case you are indecisive and need some guidance.
Faux Fur Jacket in Snow Leopard - This is so Cruella De Vil and I need that kind of fashion in my life...*adds to cart*
Petite Embellished Body Suit - Let's be clear, I have no where to wear this but I am thinking maybe New Years Eve? Wowza.
Puff Shoulder Mesh Sleeve Top - only $24 and that's before the 30% off. Skip one Uber Eats delivery and you can afford this top...priorities.
Dark Floral Tee - Take floral into the winter with this comfy $26 top. I can see this paired with leggings and hightop sneakers for a casual look. You could also dress it up for work and wear it tucked in with a belt, black blazer, dark wash skinnies and a pair of closed toe pumps or wedges. Versatile comfort has never looked better. Props, ASOS.
Black Coated Jegging - Black coated, high waisted, half jean, half legging, under $50, say no more.
Next up, TopShop. Their big sale is 50% off on select items! 50%...that yuuuuuuge.
When I was in Spain three years ago, I developed a love for TopShop. They have tons of stores, but most of them aren't in the United States. When I saw one in Madrid, I thought I was going to have a full on heart-attack. They can do no wrong in my book. Check out the links below to see some of my favorite affordable items on sale at TopShop!
$30 Loafers that come in 3 colors! Loafers are so popular right now and they can transition well from work to play.
Embellished Slip On Sneakers - Some people may say these are a little extra...but so is the guac at Chipotle and no one complains about that ;)
Pajama Set that would be so cute for Christmas! They are more stylish than the matching flannel pajamas your mom will probably get you and your siblings, so grab a pair to wear during the Holiday season!
This is the part where Nala decided I wasn't paying enough attention to her while I was typing this...diva dog.
RM is having "Black Week" instead of "Black Friday." You can find the world's best crossbody bag on major sale. I have had my Mac Crossbody for 4 years. I have the mini version, which is only $98 during this sale! STEAL! Mine has weathered the storms of date parties, college football games, and countless weddings. I love the chain detail on the strap that really elevates the bag and makes it a dressier staple in your closet.
For the sassier, braver gals out there, Rebecca Minkoff has made the COOLEST new interchangeable straps for her bags. They are called "guitar straps" and they edge up your cross body and make it more casual. These are the guitar straps on sale. They can attach to any bag that has a detachable strap. make sure to check out the furry straps too *HEART EYES!*
Baublebar is having a 35% off sale with the code Cyber35. I could go on for hours about how much I love this site, but I will just drop a few favorites below so that you can spend your time shopping instead of listening to me rant and rave.
Ear Crawlers that won't scare your mom and grandma :)
Earring Gift Set that you could split up and give as gifts to friends or family!
Layered Choker that I could see myself wearing almost everyday.
Tassel Earrings for date night!
Wrap Necklace that gives me chills to look at because I love it so much.
One of the best things that has happened since I started PDA is being able to be a Target affiliate! I love that I can partner with one of my all time favorite places to show you some of their awesome new brands. Here's a few must-have accessories under $20.
Beanie with Cuff and Pom for those chilly days, or when you simply cannot manage your hair.
Faux Fur Scarf in pink and black, always a great color combo!
Diff Charitable Eyewear
Last, but certainly not least, is the 50% off sale that DIFF is having! You can shop the entire sale here. I love the Jessie James Decker frames that are on sale now. I bought them this summer and the size is great. They have been pretty durable too, which I was worried about since I ordered them online and couldn't see them in person. I have my eye on the Khloe collection- specifically the ones with the red transparent lenses. With each pair of sunglasses sold, DIFF donates a pair of reading glasses to children in need. What better reason is there to shop?
As you are shopping, I hope that you are at home curled up with something hot to sip on, a lit Christmas tree in view and yummy goodies baking in the oven. If you are in your cubicle at work, I'm right there with you. That's the beauty of Cyber Monday: shop anywhere, anytime.
I hope you lovelies had a joyful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and food. I am #thankful for the way that you all have supported me in the last month and a half since I started PDA. Enjoy these finds and let me know if you find any great deals that I should share!
