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
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
Bodha Ritual Ceramic Oil Diffuser
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
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

Veja V-10 Bastille Sneakers
The Veja (we think) is the new status sneaker.

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
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.

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

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