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.
Labor Day has come and gone, but the sales are still quite good: Below, the 50 percent off Balenciaga earrings, discounted denim jumpsuits, googly-eyed bathmats, and on-sale Geoff McFetridge posters that we dug up this week.
An elegant denim jumpsuit (that can easily transition from day to night) from 3x1.
A crisp white button-down is overrated. We like this slouchy, soft cotton one from Free People.
We are suckers for anything googly-eye-related, so are fully delighted by this bathmat.
An autumnal shift dress (that you could wear with a turtleneck underneath) from MSGM.
Another autumnal floral number, this one from A.L.C., and made from 100 percent silk.
A long-sleeved French-terry tee that you can wear around the house with sweatpants, but also to a nice dinner.
These Citizens of Humanity jeans have the perfect amount of flare, and the perfect amount of crop.
In fact, they would look great with these 75 (!) percent off Loeffler Randall wedge mules.
For those (like us) who find the no-white-after–Labor Day rule silly.
A little bucket bag with a little more flair than your usual bucket bag.
We picked out some of our favorites from J.Crew’s excellent fall sale the other day, but there are goodies we skipped over, like this lovely indigo tie-waist top.
Add a little fresh-faced dewy glow to your cheeks with this “dew pot” from Make.
A Barbour-y (but a lot cheaper) jacket from J.Crew that is also available without a corduroy collar.
You could probably get away with wearing the top of these shorty Cosabella PJ’s out of the house.
Just a 40 percent off Hanky Panky thong.
A worn-in-looking black ribbed tee from Helmut Lang (that would look great tucked into something).
A very handsome Madewell backpack in a calming shade of “linen.”
We hate to say it, but Timberland boot season is upon us.
A simple, super-soft cotton sweater from James Perse.
A duo of nonstick, dishwasher-safe All-Clad pans (one that’s 10 inches, another that’s 12) for all your stovetop cooking needs.
Some meander-about-the-neighborhood pants made from breathable, soft French terry.
In the spirit of the new Beautiful Losers exhibit at the Hole, a really great Geoff McFetridge poster that was made with Hay for the 2017 Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen.
Another collab from Hay (this time with Hee Welling), this chair is great for a dining room table, a desk, or an otherwise dreary corner of the living room.
The discount isn’t huge, but a discount (plus free two-day shipping) on some Apple AirPods is a discount nonetheless.
A lovely 12-piece watercolor-y dinnerware set that’s microwave safe.
An elegant See by Chloé crossbody bag with gold hardware and lined in twill.
These Balenciaga earrings will work for pierced and non-pierced ears alike.
Speaking of versatile, this dress from Raey can be worn like this, or the other way around, with front-to-bottom buttons.
The most subtle light-pink flowers adorn this Pour Les Femmes robe, which donates all its profits to support women suffering from violent conflict in the Congo.
It’s the little white button on the pocket that sold us on this black tee from Mexico City–based menswear line Hecho.
A pair of sensible half-off flats from Coach.
This & Other Stories shoulder bag can double as a “bum bag.”
We’re very into the “cardigan as shirt” look, and this stripey one from DVF will look great with nothing underneath it.
Twenty-five bucks is actually an insane price for this Bill Cunningham–blue coat from Farrow.
We love the pink-and-gray color combo of these Adidas sneaks. (They also come in blue-and-white and pink-red-and-white.)
A groovy mid-century-modern-inspired pillow from Jonathan Adler.
There’s apparently limited inventory, so get this 75 percent off Dansk casserole while you can!
