What We’re Shopping This Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Once a week, we ask our editors to share the items they’ve been loving or lusting after—whether it’s a new skincare product we’re dying to try or a travel essential we can’t live without. Consider “The Weekly Covet” your editor-approved wish list for beauty, travel, fashion, and everything in between.


The Penny

“Loafers are my cool weather go-to: more formal than a sneaker, but just as comfy. I’ve had my eye on these from Margaux for ages, and with their big sitewide sale coming up, they’ll definitely be in my cart.” — Lauren Hubbard, Contributor

The Heart Print

“You know who won’t have any supply chain issues this holiday season? Emerging artisans and makers who are nimbler than any big box store. Consider the work of the New York designer and printer Archie Archambault, who meticulously crafts and letterpresses artisanal maps of various extractions. These tender heirlooms are not just of cities, outer space or traditional cartographic catnip, but also of harder to navigate spots, like the heart.” — Erik Maza, Style Features Director


Kiki & Herb’s SLEIGH at BAM

“What I’ll be up early to buy are tickets to Kiki & Herb’s Sleigh, a new holiday spectacular playing for just four performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The charming, hilarious, and brilliantly irreverent duo are debuting this new show beginning November 30, and I’m positive it’ll be the highlight of my season.” — Adam Rathe, Arts Editor


Mosaic: Gee’s Bend & Greg Lauren Bandana Graphic Hoodie

“The exquisite work of the Gee’s Bend quilters, a tradition that dates to 19th century Alabama, are one-of-a-kind heirlooms, meticulously handcrafted by American artisans of the highest order. The New York designer Greg Lauren had the inspired idea to ask them to collaborate on a collection using a decade of his own scraps, and the resulting 96 garments are on sale at Bergdorf Goodman, with a small sample of them available on Lauren’s site. It’s an incredible deal to have for yourself a piece of wearable art by this community of women.” — Erik Maza, Style Features Director


Protini Polypeptide Cream


The Mirror Gym

“Anyone else have memories of going to the big box tech stories with their dad at 5 a.m. on Black Friday? Tech is my discount drug of choice and this year I have my eye on the fitness Mirror, which not only streams classes and one-on-one personal training into your home, but doubles as a sleek (you guessed it) mirror, when not in use.” — Olivia Hosken, Style & Interiors Writer

Carra Black Suede Boot

“A good pair of boots can be quite pricey, so Black Friday is the perfect time to scoop up a new pair at a discount. I have my eye on these suede beauties from Brian Atwood’s capsule collection for Scarosso. They’re a classic style so now will be a good time to invest.” — MaryKate Boylan, Senior Fashion Editor 


One Side Off the Shoulder Top

“I’m always on the hunt for the top that will take me from day to night and occasion to occasion. KÛR Collection is known for their lace (which is handmade in Sri Lanka using traditional methods), but this off the shoulder top is not to be missed. I plan on wearing it with everything from jeans to dress pants, and my favorite torque necklace.” — Sarah Adams, Freelance Fashion Assistant


Orangette Dark Chocolates

“One of my (unfortunately many) weaknesses is chocolate covered orange peel. And in the spirit of giving-and receiving-I love to share this pleasure with friends and family. And plan to stock up this week. These happen to be the perfect size for either a brief indulgence or full blown feast. And they are such a sharp looking candy aren’t they?” — Stellene Volandes, Editor-in-Chief


Weekly Planner

“Truth be told, I’d be nothing without my weekly planner. Every holiday season, I look forward to picking out a new one for the year ahead. I have my eye on this one for 2022 and definitely plan (pun intended) to take advantage of Papier’s 20% off sitewide sale. I’m giving myself the gift of organization and peace of mind, and that’s the best present of all, as far as I’m concerned.” — Meg Donohue, Contributor  


Valstarino Jacket

“A perilous downside to the fact that everyone in my family is devilishly stylish is that it is increasingly easy to blow my budget and then some with holiday shopping. I’ll be using Italist to help me with that. The online shopping destination connects you to a number of Italian partner boutiques to deliver in-season luxury products that just so happen to be brand new and marked down up to 40 percent (and up to 55% on Black Friday). Gifts from their favorite luxury brands (and if I’m honest, a gift for myself too?) without ruining my allotted budget for the season? It doesn’t get better than that. “—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor
