Nora’s Cyber Monday Picks

Happy almost-December, #PetiteCrew! I’ve been putting off wearing winter clothes as long as I possibly can (despite loving the cozy knits and supple leathers of the season, I know by late March I’ll be sick of ’em, so I try to only wear winter clothes when I must) but today I wore boots, a scarf, and my winter coat. And almost wished I had a hat and gloves on, too.

Today is Cyber Monday – had you heard? A handful of awesome readers participated in our Virtual Personal Stylist pilot over the weekend, allowing me to cull the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales specifically for them. It was a part of my Entrepreneurship class for my MBA, and I’ll report out on it when the semester ends!

For the rest of you, there aren’t any personalized Virtual Closets to be had for now, but here are my Nora-approved Cyber Monday picks:

Adrianna Papell Dress

Print Crêpe de Chine Wrap Dress | Adrianna Papell

Through the end of today, Nordstrom is taking an additional 25% off sale, with no code necessary. This is an amazing sale, y’all – I can’t emphasize that enough. In addition to this gorgeous dress that’s just screaming out for a curvaceous chick to wear it, check out their legendary shoe section. These Sam Edelman pumps come in a few gorgeous surprise neutrals like leopard and gold, and I’ve been eyeing these Ivanka Trump lace-up pumps since this summer’s Anniversary Sale.

tux pants

Petite Tuxedo Ankle Pants in Julie fit | LOFT

LOFT is celebrating the holiday shopping season with 50% off storewide plus free shipping with no minimum order today. (Unsurprisingly, given that they’re part of the same company, Ann Taylor has a similar promotion.) I’ve been looking for a great pair of fancy pants for holiday parties and these tux pants might just be it. Now also might be the right time for me to get that black blazer I’ve been saying I need.

talbots jumpsuit

Satin-Back Crepe Jumpsuit | Talbots

Talbots is offering 50% off one full-price item and 40% off the rest of your order today, and this jumpsuit has my eye. The high waist and sleeves are precisely the shape a jumpsuit needs to fit my pear-shaped body, and I could wear something like this to work with a cardigan or blazer or to a party with sparkly pumps and a fun necklace. The Sloan Jumpsuit from Madewell is another winner for the same reasons, and is currently 25% off using their promotion. N.B. that you might have to invest some dollars in alterations for a jumpsuit, since it’s a little less forgiving than a dress, but isn’t the statement worth it?

Rebel Stone Statement Necklace | Stella & Dot

Stella & Dot has a selection of pieces discounted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous necklace for a while. It’s pricey even with the discount at about $150, but so versatile! It pairs just as well with a cocktail dress as it does with a business suit. Plus, spending more than $50 at S&D today gets you the Lightning Studs for only $6 – a steal.

In addition to splurges like these, consider using the shopping holiday to stock up on your beloved basics – tees, undergarments, and socks.
