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.
Lots of goodies in this Friday’s sales roundup including several butt-flattering jeans, a chubby side-table, a practical knife set, and one of Rio Viera-Newton’s favorite cream blushes.
The Patagonia Houdini jacket (so called because it’s insanely lightweight and folds up into a little nothing) is perfect for forthcoming crisp fall days.
If August seems like an odd time to buy cashmere that’s because it is. But for 76 percent off, it’s hard to resist.
A relaxed striped tee that’d look great tucked into the black jeans above.
It’s a little coy (the polka dots) and a little not-coy (the dramatic slit up the leg).
Some more seasonally inappropriate cashmere.
The mesh “inner shorts” help improve airflow.
Cashmere? And now espadrilles? We’re all over the place today!
This elegant Muuñ bucket bag has a handle made from bamboo.
Speaking of leggings, there are a few left on super-sale over at Outdoor Voices.
There’s this half-zip pullover as well. As one reviewer put it: “perfect for pre-workouts, hikes/strolls, running errands or just around the house. Obsessed.”
Martha! Ombre? We like!
It works out to about 7 bucks a knife here.
This Bill Cunningham blue chore coat is from Alex Mill, a newish line founded by J.Crew and Madewell alums.
We’ll let it slide that it’s called a “dufflete.” It’s actually a very lovely bag.
A whole bunch of sale items at Bloomies are an extra 25 percent off (the discount’s applied at checkout), like this sweet, heart-shaped fanny pack from Le Sportsac.
And this classic leather work tote from MICHAEL by Michael Kors.
The shiny gold hardware contrasts nicely with the nylon here.
You probably don’t need another striped T-shirt, but (a) it has a pocket, and (b) it’s $15.
Some incredibly comfortable-looking (machine washable) pants that you could both wear to sleep and to work.
