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.
We are still not quite recovered from Prime Day around these parts, but when there are excellent sales (like the Nordstrom anniversary sale) you can rest assured that we will rise to the occasion and be ready for action on the scene. This week, the prices are continuing to drop — with a ton of items that we’ve seen on sale get even cheaper. Below, the best of the week’s deals.
A pair of “looks like you’ve had them for years” high-rise jeans from Citizens of Humanity.
A perfect little polka-dotted number from Vince.
This floral appliqué top would look great with the jeans up top, FWIW. (And yes, we have included this in a sales roundup before, but it’s gotten really cheap.)
A dress that works for summer, but will feel right at home in the fall.
If you’ve been meaning to get a monogrammed Matouk bath mat … now’s the time!
Some work pants from Eileen Fisher that you can throw in the washing machine.
And this 100 percent silk charmeuse Kiki de Montparnasse bra.
And lastly, this fluttery top from Kalita.
And for a full farmers’-market experience, here’s a (seemingly for photo shoots only) peapod to stick your little one into.
A truly elegant pair of Tabitha Simmons ankle-strap sandals.
An easy-breezy Vince crêpe cami with cross-back straps (that you can’t see in this photo).
It’s a little bit early … but this Marni denim jacket would make a great early fall piece.
The founder of Pad Outdoor Eli Bonerz (who, incidentally, founded the iconic Beastie Boys–adjacent streetwear brand XLARGE) originally envisioned these colorful indoor/outdoor planters for his mid-century-modern Neutra home.
Now, two summery shoes that are on sale at Yoox. First up are these insanely festive polka-dotted slides from Italian-based Leo Studio Design.
Only a few sizes left here, but we quite liked these white tassel-adorned Castañer platform espadrilles.
Everything on sale at Matches Fashion is an additional 20 percent off, which makes this cross-back poplin dress from Rachel Comey an even more appealing end-of-season splurge.
We have a visceral (in a good way) reaction to anything rattan and reminiscent of a Hoffmann Bentwood chair.
Fruit-salad mini-skirt alert!
The classic slip-on Van gets a bit of a makeover in the form of this Anaheim sneaker. (It’s available — and on sale — in black, too.)
We found this Marni wallet in the men’s department of Need Supply, but its exterior zip pocket means it could work for a lady, too.
A very basic (and 59 percent off) pair of Saturdays swim trunks.
These semi-translucent-soled Adidas are a collab between L.A. streetwear brand Oyster Holdings.
This off-the-shoulder eyelet top from Rag & Bone is a very good deal.
A fancy-event-appropriate long black dress from Danish line By Malene Birger.
And last but not least, a simple leather wallet from Alexander Wang.
