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.

There’s a nice crop of sales happening this weekend, as you’ll see reduced items getting even further discounts. You’ll want to act fast though — many of the sale-on-sale promotions end after this weekend (such as the STOCKUP18 code for East Dane and Shopbop, the extra 30 percent off at Anthropologie, and the FALL discount code at Macy’s). Below, three dozen great things we found on sale, including A.P.C. coats, Madewell jeans, and Areaware coasters.


One thing A.P.C. has a real knack for: cutting the hem of a coat so it hits just at the right spot.

Baggu Square Wallet

We found a lot of great Baggu goodies on sale the other day, but these plain black wallets weren’t among them.

$56 at Shopbop
with code: STOCKUP18
Leora Floral Skirt

An almost ruglike skirt that does all the work for you — all you need is a plain white tee.

Areaware Bend Key Ring

We have this, we love it, we give it as gifts.

$13 at East Dane
with code: STOCKUP18

James Perse’s famously buttery tee, with a very California palm tree printed on the back.

Reynolds Desk Lamp

We love this friendly-looking lamp and might just get it for ourselves.


When your look for fall is definitely the opposite of body-con.

Lucky Cat Bath Mat

The lucky cat you see in Japanese restaurants, now in bath-mat form — we especially appreciate the fish-under-the-arm detail.

A totally effortless silk dress that becomes fall-appropriate when you wear it with a cardigan.

Dr. Martens 1460 Smooth Boot

Rainy days mean combat boots and combat boots mean only Doc Martens.


The perfect finishing touch for your 8-year-old’s dinosaur costume — or just a regular everyday backpack.

Madewell Wrap Top

A casual top with a vintage, painting-the-house-this-weekend vibe.

Korean beauty experts told us that this liposome lotion was everything they wished a Clinique lotion was, at a better price point.

The crisscross part of this black dress comes in its neat back detail — we like the idea of styling it with a denim trucker jacket, too.

A smaller version of the medium transport bag so beloved by so many. The lovely shade is as complementary as a pair of jeans.

Save this one for a Saturday in October when it’ll inevitably shoot up to 82 degrees.

Everyone’s favorite small blender for smoothies is extra cheap but only until Sunday.

Madewell makes lots of stuff well, but what they’re really known for is jeans (consult our guide to see how many are Madewell). These high-waist puppies will always be in style.

We like to think of these as a refined cousin to ubiquitous Birkenstocks.

Reminiscent of the Equipment silk shirt without the hefty price tag (it’s also rayon rather than silk).

A folding dryer that’s just super for travel (you don’t use that dinky hotel blow dryer, right?).

Rosalia Wrap Dress

We like the cheery print and flattering ruffle detail along the collar of this dress.

An extremely well-reviewed garment steamer for pressed clothes even when you’re leaving out of a suitcase.

Emile Wrap Dress

Cut the label off and tell everyone it’s DVF “but, like, vintage.”

Our friends at the Cut have written about how much they love this mask, and now it’s half off.

James Perse Crepe Dress

There’s something so sophisticated about the slit peekaboo detail on this crepe dress.


Stare long enough at these tiles and you’ll get a little dizzy, which is 80 percent of their charm.

$14 at East Dane
with code: STOCKUP18

We’d wear this top tucked into a pair of jeans to the movies, if we’re honest.

Kassatex Kyoto Bath Towel

We love cheap bath towels, but we love cheap bath towels even more when they’re (a) doubly reduced with a sale-on-sale and (b) from Kassatex.

$30 at Macy's
with code: FALL

We can’t resist the simple lines and pleasing roundness on the dial of this watch.

Some can’t-go-wrong Chuck Taylors in classic black (white’s on sale, too).

Our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton has sworn by this morning cleanser for more than a year, and the accompanying oil-free lotion makes the perfect counterpart to chemical-exfoliant-heavy routines.

Imagine cozying up in this wool-cashmere throw while watching Jane Fonda in Five Acts.


And before we leave you, if the dropping temperatures of fall have you reminiscing about summer, there are some very discounted Solid & Striped swimsuits to be had.

$98 at Shopbop
with code: STOCKUP18
