10 Pieces We’re *Actually* Buying on Cyber Monday

So many sales, such little time.

By: Leah Faye Cooper

Following a Black Friday that saw us snap up everything from designer shoes to cult-favorite flat irons, we’re ready for holiday discount shopping round two, formally known as Cyber Monday. From the comfort of our beds, on our iPhones en route to the office, and discreetly (or not so discreetly) during meetings, we’ve been poring over sales in search of new finds to add to our wardrobe. And while there is *a lot* to choose from, only a few items are making the cut. (We do have bills to pay.) Ahead, 10 pieces we’re actually buying today.


J. Crew Buckled High-Heel Sandals

“It’s already cold in NYC, so I won’t be able to wear these for a while, but I love them, and they’re on sale for $32 (originally $248), which means they’ve already been purchased.” —Leah Faye Cooper, Editorial Director

The Arrivals Moya III

“I’ve wanted this shearling bomber from The Arrivals for *years*, and every Cyber Monday the price finally dips low enough with 30 percent off that I can justify snagging it. I’ve planned out my budget, added it to my cart, and you’ll soon spot me strutting down the street looking happy as a clam. Some pieces are worth waiting for.” —Hannah Baxter, Editor

P.E Nation Without Limits Striped Stretch Leggings

“While I was planning to keep my credit card securely inside my wallet today, there is no way I can pass up P.E Nation leggings for $65 (originally $130). If you’re already familiar with the brand, you’ll know why, and if you aren’t, just know that they're some of the most luxurious and well-made leggings on the market.” —Jodi Taylor, Associate Editor

Genuine People Collar Wool Coat

“I’ve been searching for the perfect tan/camel-colored coat for the last two years, and think I’ve finally found the one. I love this version from Genuine People for a few reasons: it looks more modern than the average peacoat, 100 percent wool means it’s warm (but not bulky), and the best part of all—it’s 30 percent off for Cyber Monday!” —Kate Citron, Marketing & Business Development Director

Fleur Du Mal Guipure Lace-Trimmed Stretch Jersey Bodysuit

“I love the star detailing on this bodysuit. It’s perfect for date night!” —Maddy Lyon, Manager, Campaign Strategy

Nike Air Max 95

“While I love a great winter boot, this season I am all about sneakers. My favorite shoe happens to be the Nike Air Max, and lucky for me, this shoe comes in all different color waves. I was able to snag these this weekend for $80, and with this 25 percent off Cyber Monday discount on Eastbay, you can too!” —Nandi Howard, Editorial Production Fellow

Mackage Miley Leather Coat

“Mackage has done the impossible: made a warm puffer coat that I actually want to wear. I saw the leather and was sold.” —Stephanie Ingber, Digital Media Planner

Outdoor Voices Warmup Legging

“Outdoor Voices still has their Black Friday sale going on (and an extra 20 percent off for Cyber Monday!), so I’m snagging an original $70 pair of leggings for only $35, as in half off. If you’re in need of some good workout gear, I highly suggest looking at their deals today... I know I’ll probably be going back.” —Ivanna Martinez-Gonzalez, Social Media Associate

3.1 Phillip Lim Drum Leather Ankle Boots

“These boots are walking directly into my shopping cart.” —Jordan Guskind, Senior Manager, Brand Partnerships & Special Events

Helmut Lang Belted Cotton Trench Coat

“If I have to put up with rain, I should at least do so in a stunning Helmut Lang trench coat, right? Lucky for me, this one’s 30 percent off today.” —Katie Becker, Beauty Director
