20X200: Where I'm Shopping This Cyber Monday

My Black Friday naps were interrupted only by the Criminal Minds marathon, and I made it through the rest of the weekend with only one stop at the mall--an errand in futility, since the pretzel store was closed and the returns line for my leopard-print pumps (a tragic decision from earlier this season) was too long to deal with. (Especially without the pretzel.) However: I love Cyber Monday, as it allows me to do all the shopping with none of the parking, lines, or cold--now more than ever, because my favorite online art gallery is in on the action. 20X200.com sells three sizes of work (mostly photos, but some other stuff as well) by upcoming artists, with the cheapest usually a mere $20.

Today, purchases of over $200 are 20% off with code CM200X--my pick (for the moment) is this reimagined version of a recent contributor's page from Vogue.
