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.

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

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

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

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

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

$50

A graphic DVF wrap-dress dupe from Mango.

Clarks Grace Nina Heels
$40

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

Just some $10 high-waisted leggings from Reebok.

M.R.K.T. Tyler Tote
$45

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

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
$8

An enamel mug from our favorite Danish homewares line Hay.

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

Another Strat favorite? Crow Canyon splatterware!

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

Frye Carson Ballet Flat
$82

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

$41

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

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

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

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

$116

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.”)

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

$71

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.

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

Reformation Prince Pant
$74

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

Reformation Dane Dress.
$174

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.

$130

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

Baggu Weekend Bag
$37

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

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

$120

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?

$200

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.

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

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

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

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.

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