You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
sales roundup includes a slew of summery wares (a pretty white dress, some Castaner x Manolo Blahnik espadrilles, a bunch of outdoor furniture, an L Space bikini) as well as a bunch of Mother’s Day gifts, which you should really think about ordering now, as May 13 is fast approaching!

I’ll retreat to bed and drape the whole thing over my face if I’m feeling particularly unable to face the world.”
