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.

After a week of excellent deals (namely on clogs), the deals kept on coming: Below, some of our favorite finds, including way-less-expensive-than-they-look black heels, our favorite Laundress detergent, and a whole bunch of Strat-approved homewares.

Eberjey Colette Lace Boy-Leg Thong

In honor of Underwear Week, we dug up some very discounted underthings on sale at Neiman Marcus. First up, this $15 Eberjey thong.

Eberjey Painted Striped Pajama Pants

Also from Eberjey, some extremely soft striped lounge-about-the-house-pants.

Cosabella Metropolis Triangle-Cup Bralette

And then two little Cosabella finds: this sort of Art Deco–feeling bralette.

Cosabella Minimalista Rib-Knit Tap Shorts

And these pleated shorty shorts. Make a whole look of it with a matching $25 camisole.

Mango Military-Style Overshirt

A thick button-down shirt that would look great paired with a white turtleneck.

Mango Geometric Print Dress

A graphic DVF wrap-dress dupe from Mango.

Clarks Grace Nina Heels

These $40 Clarks heels do not look like they are from Clarks. Nor do they look like they are $40.

Reebok Essential Jersey Legging

Just some $10 high-waisted leggings from Reebok.

M.R.K.T. Tyler Tote

This color-blocked canvas tote from M.R.K.T. features an all-important interior zip pocket for holding things like keys.

Hawkins New York Stripe Wool & Cotton Throw Blanket

In a somewhat curious turn of events, a whole bunch of very niche (and very Strategist-y) home goods are on sale at Nordstrom right now. Like this lovely wool throw blanket from Hawkins New York.

Hay Enamel Mug

An enamel mug from our favorite Danish homewares line Hay.

Hay Medium Kaleido Powder Coated Steel Tray

This Hay steel tray is a longtime Strategist favorite (and is also available, and on sale, in a smaller size).

Crow Canyon Small 2 Quart Enamelware Open Roaster

Another Strat favorite? Crow Canyon splatterware!

Bodha Ritual Ceramic Oil Diffuser

A decidedly not-cheesy-looking essential-oil diffuser from Bodha.

Frye Carson Ballet Flat

These black leather Frye flats are a very practical pre-fall purchase.

Superga Fantasy Cotu Sneaker

These polka-dotted Supergas? Perhaps less practical, but we still love them.

Madewell Texture & Thread Wrap Top

A little wrap top in bright cherry red that would go nicely with a pair of blue jeans.

TOCCA Beauty Candela - Valencia

This Tocca candle is inspired by the “Spanish sun” and has notes of orange blossom, bergamot, jasmine, and neroli.

Brookstone®Outlast Temperature Regulating Side Sleeper Standard Pillow

Attention hotheaded side sleepers: Apparently, this pillow from Brookstone features “Outlast technology” that keeps your head cool.

Sweaty Betty Luxe Gym Bag

We can personally vouch for this Sweaty Betty gym bag … because we own it! We also use it on the regular as a weekend bag.

Adidas by Stella McCartney Train Ultra Tight

It’s the bright-red waistband that really “makes” these Adidas for Stella McCartney leggings.

Adidas by Stella McCartney Run Convertible Backpack

And a matching(ish) Adidas by Stella McCartney backpack, which can actually transform and pack down into a fanny pack.

The Laundress Delicate Wash Laundry Detergent

If we may go back to Underwear Week for a second, this “delicate wash” soap from the Laundress is highly recommended by the experts for washing lace or silk underwear.

Jonathan Adler Champagne Pop Candle

A Jonathan Adler candle makes a real classy “thanks for letting me stay with you for Labor Day” gift.

Peacock Alley Metro Bath Towel

If you know us at all, you know we cannot resist a white linen with a navy border. And that includes towels. (It’s also on sale as a larger “bath sheet.”)

Converse Chuck Taylor High Top Casual Sneakers

These all-white Converse high-tops would look great with some high-waisted cropped flares.

Reformation Mercury Skirt

Last week, we highlighted a bunch of items from the big Reformation sale. We seemed to have overlooked a few gems, like this metallic silver leather skirt.

Reformation Eliza One Piece Bathing Suit

We love the thick (but not too thick) straps of this one-piece.

Reformation Prince Pant

Those white Converse above would look excellent with this pair of pants.

Reformation Dane Dress.

This dress comes in a very autumnal shade of green. Note: There aren’t a ton of sizes left, but it’s also available (in a ton of sizes) in red floral.

Veja V-10 Bastille Sneakers

Veja V-10 Bastille Sneakers

The Veja (we think) is the new status sneaker.

Baggu Weekend Bag

Baggu Weekend Bag

We’ve been following this Baggu weekender, and its on-sale price was just marked down even further. (Also, we just bought it.)

OTAAT/MYERS Collective Small Round Bucket Tote Bag

OTAAT/MYERS Collective Small Round Bucket Tote Bag

This bucket bag features L.A.-based line OTAAT/MYERS Collective’s signature rounded handle.

Clarks Wallabee Moccasin

We saw a young woman walking down the street and looking very stylish in a pair of these Clarks Wallabees with some cropped pants and we thought … Do we want some Clarks Wallabees?

Filson Mile Marker Jacket

We briefly noted this in our Filson-bag sale post earlier this week, but there’s a very stately, Barbour-esque coat, also from Filson, on sale for 43 percent off at the moment.

Knickerbocker MFG Ladder Knit Tee

Just a simple, men’s white tee from Knickerbocker MFG made from “the finest cotton around.”

Hunter Original Floral Stripe Mini Compact Umbrella

A very compact umbrella from Hunter that packs a big, floral punch.

Alice + Whittles Black Sport Stripes Ankle Boot

Pair your new umbrella with some snazzy new rain boots from ethically made rain-boot line Alice + Whittles.

Refurbished- Beats by Dr. Dre EP Wired On-Ear Headphones

Last week, we noticed that a lot of you were into the Beats by Dre headphones on sale at Walmart, so we decided to include this pair of refurbished Beats by Dre headphones, which are also on sale at Walmart.

Plan Toys Bathtub Explorers: Sailing Walrus

This might just be the cutest bath toy we ever did see!
