The retail joy that surrounds Thanksgiving continues with Cyber Monday, a shopping holiday that feels as urgent as Black Friday but has the glorious benefit that you can celebrate it from your living room. You can cruise the internet finding the best deals on everything your heart desires, all without experiencing overwhelming crowds of manic shoppers and long lines. From the cool boutiques and local designer-driven stores to the massive, chain stores with embarrassingly good sales, there are a few standouts on the Cyber Monday scene.
If you're more of an IRL shopper and would prefer to do your deal-hunting in a store instead of in your pajamas, Article & is taking a different approach to Cyber Monday and also offering its discount in-store. The Brooklyn boutique (a tweaked reincarnation of Dear Fieldbinder) is like the dream closet of a sartorial tuned-in, urban creative professional, with price points that make that dream a reality.

Cool-girl haven Bird brings the range of accessible to high-end designer fashion that you might find in one of the Fifth Avenue department stores to Brooklyn in a smart, edited way, peppering the selection of downtown essentials and fresh classics with edgy statement pieces. The shop is getting into the spirit of Cyber Monday with deals that will bring your favorite designers closer within reach, even if you're not normally one to splurge.
