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.

For this week’s sales roundup, we double-dipped into some sales we’ve already covered to find even more discounted gems, including lots of items in the 60 to 80 percent off department.

Solid & Striped Nina Belted Polka-Dot One-Piece Swimsuit

The Moda Operandi, Matches, and Net-a-Porter sales are the sales that keep on giving — in that we keep finding little (extremely discounted) gems in there. Case in point, this Solid & Striped one-piece that was just added to Moda’s sale.

Smythson Panama Leather Notebook

Believe it or not, $39 is a very good price for a Smythson notebook. This would make a nice gift for a high-school grad.

Sensi Studio Circular Straw Handbag

A Sensi straw bag that’s actually quite sensible (in that you can fit work stuff in it).

Jennifer Behr Oversized Silk Faille Barrette

A little less sensible: This lime-green silk hair bow-barrette.

Alexander McQueen Polka-Dot Embroidered Tie

Now, a few things we missed from the Matches Fashion sale that would make good Father’s Day gifts. First up: a polka-dotted Alexander McQueen tie.

Prada Silk-Satin Bow Tie

If Dad’s taste runs a little more … Prada.

A.P.C. Road T-Shirt

And if his ratty, pit-stained white tee could use an upgrade.

Dunhill Duke Keyring

A very dapper keyring from British brand Dunhill for a very dapper dad.

Nike Air Max 95 SE Mesh

And finally, a couple shoes we missed from the Net-a-Porter sale: these pastel-blue and neon-orange Nike Air Maxes.

See By Chloe Embroidered Laser-Cut Espadrille Wedge Sandals

These See by Chloe espadrilles (that feature a comfortable rubber sole) were made exclusively for Net-a-Porter.

Tommy Bahama Ruffled Linen Off-the-Shoulder Dress

For something a little less highfalutin, how about this little linen Tommy Bahama number? (It’s on sale as part of a Lord & Taylor Friends & Family promotion at Walmart.)

Gold Toe Men's Manhattan Traditional Ribbed Crew Socks, 3-Pack

Throw in this three-pack of Gold Toe socks while you’re at it.

Modrn Scandinavian Earthenware Planter With Wood Stand

This handsome planter is from Walmart’s newish homewares line, Modrn.

Coastal Blue Bra-Sized Underwire Shirred-Front Bikini Top

Amazon’s “Summer Essentials” sale includes a ton of their house swimsuit lines — most aren’t quite our style, but this simple black bikini top (which you can pair with these bottoms) is retro and flattering.

The Original Donut Shop Keurig Single-Serve K-Cup Pods, Medium-Roast Coffee, 72 count

And we’d be doing a disservice if we did not note that today (Friday) only, 72-packs of donut-flavored Keurig pods are on sale.

Levi's Wedgie Icon Ultra High-Rise Straight Jeans

There’s a sweeping “clothing sale” at Anthropologie wherein all clothes (including new arrivals) are 20 percent off. (The discount is applied at checkout.) This means it’s a good time to pick up stuff that rarely goes on sale, like Levi’s ever-popular wedgie jean.

Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

Meanwhile, over at Macy’s, on-sale beauty products are an extra 15 percent off with the code “FRIEND.” Which means this “Born to Run” (whatever that means) eyeshadow palette is half off.

Free People Sasha Animal-Print Sheer-Trim Bralette

This leopard bralette would pair well with your leopard skirt.

Birkenstock Kairo Sandals

These Birkenstock Kairo sandals are technically for men, but there are lots of small sizes (that would work for women) left. Shipping is free if you spend over $150 (so pick up a pair for your best friend), and it costs about $10 otherwise.

Eileen Fisher Crop Organic Linen Overalls

Unlike most slouchy overalls, these linen ones from Eileen Fisher won’t make you look like a toddler.

Herschel Supply Co. Quiz Light Backpack

This backpack is super lightweight (for those who are doing lots of schlepping around town).

Lisa Says Gah UO Exclusive Rosa Button-Down Cropped Tank Top

At Urban Outfitters, a few of their “favorite brands” are on sale. Like this Lisa Says Gah fruit-adorned crop top. (Wear this to a picnic!)

Adidas Originals Trefoil Cropped Hoodie Sweatshirt

As you may or may not know, we have a thing for cropped hoodies tied in a bow at the neck.

Laura Ashley UO Exclusive Amelia Toile Poplin Midi Dress

We’ve written about this frock in sales posts before — when it was $60. Now it’s even cheaper.

Teva Men's Hurricane Drift Sandal, Teal

The sandal of the summer — in a pleasing shade of teal.

Who What Wear Women's Sleeveless Crewneck Tiered Maxi Dress

There’s a dress sale going on at Target and we like the styling suggestion from a reviewer of this canary-yellow number from Who What Wear: “I dressed it down with tennis shoe mules and wore my hair in a messy bun with lemon earrings.”

Who What Wear Women's Short-Sleeve V-Neck Trapeze Shirtdress

For those looking to show a little more leg, there’s this little black shirt-dress that’s also available in cream.

Madewell Roadtripper Overalls in Brodie Wash

A stretchy pair of lightweight overalls from Madewell that go up to size 3X.

$40 at Madewell
with code: ENJOY20
Rachel Comey Maya Hoop Earrings

This is a very good price for these Rachel Comey hoops.

Sophie Buhai Small Circle Pendant Necklace

Same deal with this simple Sophia Buhai necklace.

Mansur Gavriel Calf North South Tote in Moss

And if you’ve ever thought about splurging on a Mansur Gavriel tote, now would be the time.

Stutterheim Skalka Chelsea Rain Boot

All sale items at La Garconne are an extra 20 percent off, and as we noted the other day, summer is a good time to buy designer rain boots.

$67 at La Garçonne
with code: 99SOSLG20
Repetto Paname Pumps

These classic Repetto pumps pretty much go with anything.

$190 at La Garçonne
with code: 99SOSLG20
Olio e Osso Balm No. 8, Persimmon

This multi-purpose balm (people wear it on their lips, on their cheeks) rarely goes on sale, let alone a sale-on-sale. Casey Wilson is a fan.

$16 at La Garçonne
with code: 99SOSLG20
