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.
Spring is here! We found heavily discounted sandals, swimsuits, sunglasses, as well as a $34 printer and a rarely-on-sale Noguchi lamp.
Diane von Furstenberg Sleeveless Shell Top
Wear this DVF shell top under a cardigan at work, and then take said cardigan off at night to reveal a very sultry, lacy back.
The DVF Adelyn Metallic Sweater
Speaking of cardigans, how about this metallic one?
Eileen Fisher Printed Organic Cotton Scarf
Sertapedic Cool SlumberGel Jumbo Pillow
This is a very good price (eight bucks) for a cooling, body-adjusting Serta
Lodge 3.6-Quart Oyster White Casserole
Dutch oven — ideal for stewed meats and paellas — in a nice shade of “oyster white.”
Villeroy & Boch Artesano Nature Mug
Free People Don’t Forget Me Button-Detail Top
A lightweight “button-detail” top from Free People that’s ideal for these transitional, spring-ish days.
Madewell Button Detail Sweatshirt
Well, look at that: another button-detail top on sale. This one’s from Madewell.
Something Navy Pocket Coat
Rebecca Minkoff Small Karlie Leather Feed Bag
We’re not quite sure that the round metal accent has a “punk edge” exactly, but this is a very elegant and versatile leather cross-body bag from Rebecca Minkoff.
Kenneth Cole Reaction Shine Glass Slingback Sandal
Sandal season is nigh, and these Kenneth Cole slingbacks look a lot more expensive than $30.
Eastpak Padded Pakr Backpack
There is something very cool and crisp about a bright-white Eastpak backpack.
Skip Hop Funscape Activity Gym
Skip Hop is known for its not-totally-garish baby stuff (that babies still like). This
activity gym will keep your little one occupied so you can do things, like, say, brush your teeth or eat a sandwich.
Guanabana Clutch Bag Wayuu
If you have any spring or summer weddings on the horizon, this Guanabana clutch will liven up an outfit.
J.W. Anderson Double Ball Bracelet
You could wear this fun J.W. Anderson bracelet to the same wedding — and at that point basically wear a potato sack and no one would notice.
Calvin Klein Underwear Bra
A logo-adorned Calvin Klein sports bra.
Everlane Men’s Heavyweight Slim Chino
Brooks Brothers Solid Knit Henley
A go-with-anything Brooks Brothers henley.
Neiman Marcus Donegal Crewneck Sweatshirt with Elbow Patches
An orange Neiman Marcus sweatshirt you could wear out to dinner.
Proof Field Jacket
This field jacket from “technical apparel” line Proof has lots of neat features: a packable hood, a secret “document” pocket, and a zipper that “stops right below your belly button to give you greater range of movement.” It’s also available in green and black.
Isamo Noguch Akari Light Sculpture Model 20N
Helen Levi Exclusive Small Planter
And a striped planter from one of the Strategist’s favorite ceramicists, Helen Levi.
Adidas Originals 3-Stripe Mid-Rise Leggings
This comment about these Adidas
leggings say it all: “Good for working out and even just some cute leggings.”
Adidas Originals Trefoil Logo Sock 3-Pack
Meanwhile, these men’s
socks are a very good deal.
Lisa Marie Fernandez Genevieve Bikini
Haight V-Neck Crepe Bikini
A flattering pale pink two-piece from Brazilian line Haight.
& Other Stories Leopard Print Ringer Tee
As our colleagues at the Cut
noted, the & Other Stories sale is very good. There aren’t a ton of sizes left, but this leopard-print tee is too great not to include here.
& Other Stories Scoop Neck Sweater
Some end-of-season cashmere in a pleasing shade of rust.
& Other Stories Midi Wrap Dress
Wear this black wrap dress in warmer weather with some strappy sandals.

Some very stately ombre Beyond Yoga leggings.
Lululemon All Tied Up Tank
While we’re in workout land, why not throw in this pale pink Lululemon tank.

a fun deal at Saks Off 5th: get one pair of sunglasses (like these great Miu Miu ones) for yourself and a pair of half-off sunnies for a friend.
Vizio SB3820-C6 38-Inch 2.0 Channel Sound Bar
