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.
We mostly had September in mind when combing through the sales this week, though we did make sure to include a few excellent bathing suits in case you want something fresh and cute for Labor Day.
Add a little elegance to the bathroom with this 83 (!) percent off shower curtain with a “Greek Key” border.
These are technically “juniors”-size pants, so a 1 is the equivalent of a 27, and so on (see the Dickies size chart here).
This wireless bra from Natori promises to be as comfortable as it is flattering.
It’s almost long-sleeve-pajama season, and there is nothing softer than these Eberjey Giseles. This pair of “Athletic” pj’s have a gray stripe along the side.
A less-expensive option (as part of an Urban Outfitters bag sale that we wrote about a few days ago that’s still cooking along) that we are likely going to scoop up for ourselves.
We have no idea what Tutu Berry is or what Hum is, but we know what Bkr is (it makes lovely water bottles), and this is a good price for one.
Did you read the one about how Baywatch bathing suits are back? This classic option, from Speedo, is 25 percent off.
One of our colleagues keeps telling us that modern interpretations of old-fashioned pleated lampshades are a thing. If this desk lamp from Urban Outfitters is any indication, she might be onto something.
All sale items at Anthropologie are an extra 30 percent off. This slouchy striped tank would look great under a cardigan come September.
These festive Free People leggings are also available in a light purple.
Now’s the time in our roundup where we take a moment to acknowledge that the Dermstore anniversary sale ends on Sunday, so get your 20 percent off Good Genes while the getting’s good.
It’s almost weighted blanket season.
For today (Friday) only, this refurbished lightweight-but-powerful Dyson upright vacuum is under 200 bucks.
Over at Madewell, all sale items are an additional 30 percent off with the code SEEYA, including these extremely perky (and stretchy) boot-cut jeans. The button fly makes them look actually vintage.
A whole slew of one-pieces from Madewell’s collaboration with Land of Women are on sale, and this polka-dotted swimsuit is really somethin’.
It’s no secret that we’re kind of obsessed with Drew Barrymore’s Walmart homewares line, and are always sniffing around to see if any of the stuff is on sale. Right now this accent table (that’s also available in cobalt blue and a mint green) is 31 percent off.
The reviews of this comforter set are very positive (and many have photos so you can see what it looks like IRL), including one person who uses this in a room she advertises on Airbnb.
