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.
Stuff is getting cheap, guys. That’s because the sales-on-sales — where already-on-sale items are discounted even further — are out in full force. Below, the best deals we found this week.
If your down comforter is feeling a little stifling, consider swapping it out for this easy, breezy waffle blanket that feels very house on the Cape.
If you’ve been meaning to experiment with white jeans, these $39 ones are a good place to start.
This (machine-washable) LBD from Eileen Fisher would look great with a long-sleeved tee underneath come fall.
Huckberry’s summer clearance sale has begun, which means you can get this classic Patagonia suitcase (that features a slew of separate zip-pockets to make packing more organized) for 20 percent off.
Surprisingly delicate for a “muscle tank,” we could see this looking just as good tucked into a pair of jeans.
This Timex x Todd Snyder watch collaboration is meant to pay homage to’ ’60s- and ’70s-era Formula One drivers.
Some crisp cotton sheets spun in Portugal courtesy of Upstate. They’re “inspired by coastal weekend getaways just outside the city.”
As we noted earlier this week, stuff on sale at Madewell is an extra 40 percent off. Since last we checked, new stuff’s been added to the sale section, like these best-selling “slim” pants that are machine-washable and have side seams that “angle forward to create the slimmest possible look.”
Can we put in a request to Madewell to get a push alert whenever a new denim jumpsuit goes on sale?
You can wear this black floral dress in August and also in October.
This trio of underwear is worth it for the pineapple panties alone.
We covered Zappos’s 20th birthday sale earlier this week, but since there are literally thousands of things on sale, we missed a few items, like this North Face zip-up jacket. Noted one happy reviewer: “Its material feels like god himself wove it and slapped it on my back, 10/10.”
This Pendleton bath towel is a nice way to gussy up the bathroom.
If you have any summer camping trips on the horizon (or are just in the market for a sporty but elegant fall jacket).
These black Camper sandals would look great with some high-waisted cropped pants.
There’s something a little Zara Dress That Took Over Britain about this polka-dotted number from Farrow.
A bag in a bag from Staud that promises to add some “sophisticated kitsch” to your wardrobe.
An exceedingly elegant pair of suede slingbacks from Sigerson Morrison.
It works out to about eight bucks a Baggu here. Plus, our colleague Lauren Ro has this blue checked Baggu and we covet it deeply.
In terms of other sales we covered this week, over at Barneys Warehouse, we missed a few other insanely good deals like this Zac Posen mini bucket bag.
Believe it or not, $335 is a pretty much unheard of price for a Prada bag.
It’s hard for us to get excited about flatware but this 24-piece set from Italian line Mepra is really doing it for us. It’s available in a bunch of other colors, too.
This clever tricycle grows with your kid, and has four settings: infant trike, push trike, learn-to-ride-trike, and classic trike.
All sale items are an extra 20 percent off at Moda Operandi, which means these high-waisted flared jeans from Australian denim line Nobody are nearly 70 percent off.
We know this sounds nuts, but this is a very good price for a Smythson luggage tag, it’d make a great gift, and … the holidays are not that far off.
If the super-delicate jewelry trend is feeling a little tired, this trio of bracelets from Roxanne Assoulin is pretty much the opposite of that.
Same deal with this choker.
Gosh, there really are so many sales-on-sales this time of year. Right now, all sale items at Anthro are an extra 50 percent off. And if you still don’t have a bathing suit you’re into, this belted Solid & Striped number is both fun and flattering.
The blue hem is what does it for us with these plus-sized DL1961 jeans.
When have we ever been able to resist a red gingham top?
Lest you have forgotten, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale continues apace. This six-piece towel set was newly added to the mix.
