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 internet’s various sales bins unearthed quite a few Mother’s Day gifts (from a robe to an apron to a knife set to binoculars), as well as lots of goodies for, well, you.
“Be the bouquet,” says the description of this Diane von Furstenberg pencil skirt. All right!
Mother’s Day gift alert. Mother’s Day gift alert.
These classic Blazer Nikes have a handy zipper for getting them on and off easily.
Speaking of sales we’ve covered, here’s something we missed from Anthropologie’s extra 50 percent off sale items sale: a lovely set of four dinner plates.
And this sweet off-the-shoulder Maeve blouse.
The kids love Champion. This sweatshirt says “Champion Products” a few times on the back.
A pretty, graphic (but not overbearingly so) shower curtain that’ll zhuzh things up in the bathroom.
Two things moms love: Villeroy & Boch and teacups. A quartet of these would make a nice Mother’s Day gift.
This Bobbi Brown five-in-one palette (that includes a corrector, a creamy concealer, a skin foundation stick, sheer-finish pressed powder, and bronzing powder) is available, and on sale, in a slew of shades.
Eep! It’s almost shorts season!
These are a fun pair of slides if we’ve ever seen ’em.
A good price right here for some Free People high-waisted, cropped white pants.
And a simple, breathable racerback tank.
A great pair of knotted Rebecca Minkoff slides.
Hanky Panky’s classic thong in a pleasing floral pattern.
Some extremely cute kiddie Hunter rain boots so they can jump in puddles at will.
Becca’s bright-red lipstick promises to last up to eight hours.
At press time, there were only sizes medium and large left, but this is such a nice tee (for such a nice price) that we had to include.
A strapless dress from Eloquii (as its description aptly says) “made for boomerangs.”
A slightly more everyday dress from Eloquii (with subtle white piping).
This amethyst ring from Coach features a delicate chain, for a “layered look.”
We can’t resist a tie-strap tank, we just can’t.
We’re including the back view of this Solid & Striped bathing suit because of the buttons! (And because the front is quite straightforward.)
A shibori pillow that’ll make your couch feel a bit more “with it.”
