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.

Levi's Wedgie Jeans

When it comes to Levi’s Wedgie jeans, it’s always important to show a butt shot.

Dickies Button-Front Coverall Jumpsuit

These Dickies coveralls are 40 percent off (today only) as part of an UO “flash sale” on dresses, rompers, and skirts. There’s a stripy pair of Dickies coveralls on sale, too.

Patagonia Houdini Jacket, Red

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.

Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Featherweight Cashmere Sweater

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.

Reformation Serena High Skinny Jean

As our colleagues at the Cut pointed out, Reformation is having quite the sale right now. These are some great-seeming high-waisted (stretchy) black jeans.

Reformation Joplin Relaxed Tee

A relaxed striped tee that’d look great tucked into the black jeans above.

Reformation Florence Skirt

It’s a little coy (the polka dots) and a little not-coy (the dramatic slit up the leg).

Reformation Cashmere Crew

Some more seasonally inappropriate cashmere.

Nike Aeroswift 2-In-1 Running Short

The mesh “inner shorts” help improve airflow.

Bauer Industrial Floor Lamp

A rather sexy floor lamp that’s meant to bring “minimalist-industrial energy” to your space.

Castañer Jean Espadrilles

Cashmere? And now espadrilles? We’re all over the place today!

Muuñ Louise Bucket Bag

This elegant Muuñ bucket bag has a handle made from bamboo.

The Upside Magic Leggings

These leggings from the Upside are apparently ideal for yoga, and you can’t see it in this photo but they have neon stripes and blue panels adorning each leg.

Outdoor Voices 3/4 Warm Up Leggings, Lilac

Speaking of leggings, there are a few left on super-sale over at Outdoor Voices.

Outdoor Voices OVFleece Half-Zip, Clay

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.”

Outdoor Voices Swim Trunk

And some swim trunks that a friend of ours was wearing the other weekend and very much liked. They looked great — very crisp — on him.

Martha Stewart Collection 3-Pc. Ombré Bowl Set

Martha! Ombre? We like!

J.A. Henckels International Solution 10-Pc. Knife Set

It works out to about 7 bucks a knife here.

Topo Designs Dopp Kit

Most dopp kits take themselves very seriously. This one from Topo Designs is just having a little fun.

Alex Mill Cotton Herringbone Workers Jacket

This Bill Cunningham blue chore coat is from Alex Mill, a newish line founded by J.Crew and Madewell alums.

Alex Mill Slub Pocket Tee

As far as basic, worn-in-looking black T-shirts go, this one seems really nice.

Columbia Steens Mountain Half Snap

This fleece is a lot cheaper than its Patagonia and North Face counterparts (and equally Gorpcorian).

Coach Dufflette in Natural Calf Leather

We’ll let it slide that it’s called a “dufflete.” It’s actually a very lovely bag.

TKEES Suede Slides

All sale items are an additional 25 percent off at Anthropologie, which makes these elegant suede slides a no-brainer.

Rio Shower Curtain

This striped shower curtain’ll add a little pep to your bathroom’s step.

Make Beauty Universal Stick

This is one of Rio’s favorite cream blushes. As she wrote: “I’ve been told more than once while wearing this that I looked like I just got home from the beach.”

West Elm Kaira Side Table

We love the “chubby” lines of this West Elm side table.

LeSportsac Valentine Medium Sweetheart Nylon Belt 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.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Karson Large Leather Tote

And this classic leather work tote from MICHAEL by Michael Kors.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Polly Medium Nylon Slim Backpack

The shiny gold hardware contrasts nicely with the nylon here.

Missoni Home Lara Bath Sheet

$96 is still a lot of money for a bath towel, but with these zigzaggy Missoni linens it’s almost like you’re investing in decor.

Villeroy & Boch Oscar 20-Piece Set

Some stately flatware from Villeroy & Boch.

Brooklinen Twill Duvet Cover, Full/Queen

Not sure how much stock is left, so if you’re considering this soft duvet (“like wrapping your bed in your favorite vintage tee”), don’t dillydally.

LOU & GREY Stripe Softserve Pocket Tee

You probably don’t need another striped T-shirt, but (a) it has a pocket, and (b) it’s $15.

LOU & GREY Fluid Wide Leg Pants

Some incredibly comfortable-looking (machine washable) pants that you could both wear to sleep and to work.
