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).
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.
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.
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.
A pair of Air Maxes in a lovely shade of “barely green.”
A perfect transitional tee: a slim-fit top from Saturdays NYC made from waffle-knit fabric.
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).
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.
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.
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.
A very ’70s wrap top that looks particularly good tucked in to a pair of high-waisted pants.
We like the thinness of these tortoise hoop earrings.
A slim (read: non boxy) faded black denim jacket from J Brand.
