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.
The sales are so good right now that we haven’t really blinked an eye when confronted with stuff on sale that’s over 70 percent off. Below, the best things we found this week from the internet’s collective sales bins, including a $9 T-shirt and a $4 salt lamp.
This is a very good price for one of our all-time favorite bucket bags.
A very comfortable-looking and understatedly sexy 100 percent cotton chemise from Eberjey.
A perfectly faded black tee from J.Crew that’s a mere nine bucks. It also happens to be on sale in actual colors.
Another 70 percent–offer, this one a poplin button-down courtesy of upscale basics line Save Khaki.
This is not actually on sale as part of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (which, incidentally, is on through August 4), but it’s on sale nonetheless, and it’s a very handsome backpack.
This sweet polka-dot midi skirt is another non-Anniversary Sale deal that got lost in the shuffle.
This cult Spanish skin-care line is known for its excellent anti-aging products (and is what several of our pregnant/breastfeeding friends swore by). This gentle cleanser is infused with green tea.
This duvet cover (available in white, gray, and black) is likely very soft, considering it’s made from washed cotton and linen.
Marimekko always feels on trend, but this shower curtain feels particularly now.
Pare your new jazzy shower curtain with a more subdued bath mat from Macy’s high-end Hotel Collection.
This packable parka from Marmot is very Frank Ocean sitting front row at Louis Vuitton.
Speaking of packable, this Kelty cooler folds down to the size of a waffle-maker.
There’s something a little Charleston Shoe Company–meets–Marni about these Donald J Pliner sandals.
This Eileen Fisher number can work as a casual blazer or as an actual jacket.
In other extremely discounted Eileen Fisher news, this drapey light-blue top is 81 percent off.
It’s a bit early to be thinking about the holidays, we know, but if there are any hard-to-shop-for teen boys in your life, might we suggest this 67 percent off Off-White luggage “tag.”
Some perfectly faded black 501 jeans that’ll be great for the fall.
A punky little water bottle from bkr (that’s also on sale in metallic silver).
There’s a big summer sale going on at Serena & Lily, and for some reason only the blue things spoke to us — like this beach-house-y cotton throw.
The denim gives this jute rug its lovely blue hue as well as some softness.
This duvet cover looks like something you’d find at Hastens for over $1,000.
All sale items at Anthro are an extra 25 percent off, which makes buying a bathing suit in August feel much more acceptable.
This jacket, from Anthro’s plus-sized line, will make any outfit feel much more “together.”
It’s the dress equivalent of the Skirt.
Wear your new striped T-shirt with these cream overalls.
We’ve had our eyes on these for a while … and we might just go ahead and pull the trigger now that they’re 70 percent off.
If you’re having air-conditioner fatigue, consider basking in the joys of a ceiling fan. This one is decidedly not-hideous-looking.
Just some classic Dad Sauconys that are an extra 30 percent off their already-on-sale price, thanks to a summer sneaker sale at Huckberry.
A workout tank that can double as a non-workout tank. According to one very happy Canadian reviewer: “This tank is such a baby soft, beautiful, drapey fabric. Hangs perfectly on me and I love that there are strap adjusters to perfect the fit. It was an instant detag and became a favourite to and fro layering piece as I traveled long days across Europe last week. Does not wrinkle and feels weightless … I wish there were more dark colours, I’d buy them all.”
If you’ve been meaning to get in on the Himalayan salt lamp trend, this one’s $4.
