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’s sales roundup is a biggie … Below, the never-on-sale beauty serums, $7 enamel bowls, and 80-percent-off men’s boots we dug up.
We’ve been on a bit of a Macy’s-clearance-bin kick — so many insanely cheap home goods in there, if you do some digging. For instance, this trio of enamel-coated bowls, which, if you do the math, comes out to two bucks a bowl. Meanwhile, you get free shipping with a purchase of $49 or more, so might we interest you in …
It’s not quite the season for this men’s fleece headband, but it will definitely still be in style next year.
This 20-piece (i.e., for four people) dainty dinnerware set from Godinger is an almost unheard-of 82 percent off.
We like the chunky cuffs on this otherwise traditional striped cotton blouse from Equipment.
We love a plastic tumbler, and these, from Kate Spade, feature subtle little gold dots.
Whenever we see a DVF wrap dress for under $200, we like to flag it. This one is made from 100 percent woven silk satin.
This wrap dress is not as cheap, but is so elegant we had to include it.
Speaking of not-cheap … these Proenza Schouler heels — but they were even more expensive ($595) at one point.
It’s almost showing-your-toes season, and how sweet are these slides from London shoe line Miista?
Same with these teeny-tiny Illesteva cat-eye sunnies.
These Adidas track pants are more flattering than your standard pair of track pants.
They’d look great with these black Nike Air Maxes.
Some late-breaking sales news: Urban Outfitters is having a one-day-only bag sale (this Friday, March 29), where a whole bunch of rarely on-sale backpacks, totes, and the like are 30 percent off — like this classic Fjällräven backpack, which comes in a rainbow of colors. (There’s also a mini-Kanken and a padded-laptop-Kanken on sale, too).
A fancy-looking Matt & Nat belt bag you don’t have to feel any qualms about (because it’s made from vegan leather).
An extra good deal, since this duffle was discounted to begin with.
Not as good of a deal as the Godinger set above, but this “swirl-banded” array of dishes from Mikasa is really lovely.
Can’t resist a linen napkin with a colored border.
It’s not a boot, not yet a … not-boot.
A sequined kids’ backpack, perfect for the li’l ham in your life.
Some sweet bell sleeves on this relaxed silk-cotton (and machine-washable) T-shirt dress.
A pretty pink one-piece (with a low scoop back).
An easy-breezy 100 percent-cotton kimono wrap.
And Charlotte Tilbury’s famous Goddess Skin Clay Mask.
This metallic Missoni Mare headband will, as the description promises, “bring a vibrant finish to relaxed summer edits.”
It’s the red stitching that makes these white jeans for us.
A shibori-esque pillow that will look great with pretty much any kind of solid-colored couch.
A soon-to-be-seasonally-appropriate seersucker jumpsuit. (Say that ten times, fast.)
