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.

This week, our deep dive into the mid-August deal-o-sphere unearthed quite a few gems, among them a $12 Breton tee, a 52 percent off linen duvet cover, a whole bunch of discounted denim, and a very wonderful pair of polka-dotted Converse.

You won’t be able to do much better than $12 for a classic Breton long-sleeved tee.

An easy-breeze Free People schmatta (that’s also available in a purply-pink).

You don’t have to wear this Levi’s button-down with a matching shade of blue jeans, but you could. It’s also on sale (for $33) in a long-sleeved version.

We’ve been going hard on linen bedding this season; and for good reason: It’s amazing. This Hotel Collection duvet in a soothing shade of beige is 52 percent off.

Well, these are fun. Some polka-dotted, green-lined Converse high-tops.

A whole bunch of wares were just added to the Diane von Furstenberg sale section. First up, this simple blue-and-white bikini.

For these last days of summer, a fluttery, floral number made from soft, woven, printed bamboo with an open back.

This floral dress is a little more fancy-event-friendly; it’s made from what’s described as a “slightly sheer, woven, gauzy printed silk rayon blend.”

Finally, two dresses that are a bit more fall-y. This navy knit wrap dress is classic DVF. (And very work-appropriate.)

This striped wrap dress is made from a very luxurious-feeling silk jersey.

This festive Jonathan Adler candle makes a great “thanks for having me at your beach house for Labor Day” present.

Also from Jonathan Adler: a cheeky cookie jar.

Fakes abound, but why not get the real thing: a set of “Ghost Stools” courtesy of Kartell.

Start your new knife collection with this trio of classics from Wüsthof. The set features a paring, bread, and chef’s knife.

M.R.K.T. Evan Commuter
$35

This M.R.K.T. backpack is not so unlike the (alas, now sold out) one that Nikita Richardson professed her love for the other day.

A pair of Air Maxes in a lovely shade of “barely green.”

A comfortable sweat-wicking sports bra from Nike with a sleek cross-back.

A perfect transitional tee: a slim-fit top from Saturdays NYC made from waffle-knit fabric.

$16

Some “starter Champion.”

A delicate and lacy silk chemise from Eberjey.

A slouchy striped tee from Vince (that looks great with this mustard-colored skirt).

We love a hanging fruit basket. This one, made from cork and designed by Melanie Abrantes, can also hold plants.

$640

A perfectly-faded, tan rug from Revival, the “Casper of vintage rugs” (which we tested and really liked). A bunch of them are on sale at Huckberry.

MCMC Maine Perfume Oil
$34

This MCMC “Maine” perfume is meant to evoke “a day spent on the island of North Haven off the coast of Maine, falling in love.”

A perfect pair of fall heels (with delightful scalloped detailing) from See by Chloé.

Another 50 percent off See by Chloé goody: a very elegant $90 zip-around wallet.

$90

As we noted the other day, there’s a whole bunch of discounted Reformation at Nordstrom at the moment — like this perfectly distressed denim jacket.

You know us … we can’t resist a mock-neck. Particularly in sweatshirt form.

This maxi dress is made from a very soft and comfortable dark-blue chambray.

$25

A fall tank top seems like a contradiction in terms; but this rust-colored one from Madewell is definitely a fall tank top.

This serving-bowl-and-platter set will make your peanuts and pretzels look a lot more elegant.

This is a very good price for a Clare V. cross-body bag.

$240

A lovely set of block-printed sheets made by artisans in India from Kerry Cassill. The set includes a flat an fitted sheet and two pillowcases.

T. La Collared Wrap Top
$30
$30

A very ’70s wrap top that looks particularly good tucked in to a pair of high-waisted pants.

$15

An all-natural (but powerful) blemish-fighting lotion from Indie Lee. (We’re big fans of her blemish-fighting stick.)

We like the thinness of these tortoise hoop earrings.

$182

One of the best prices we’ve seen for a Building Block bucket bag. (This Building Block wristlet is also 50 percent off.)

These round aviators are one of the many pairs of Ray-Bans discounted as part of a flash sale taking place at Nordstrom Rack.

A 16-ouncer of dermatologist-beloved Cetaphil facial cleanser.
