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.

Baggu Leather Bucket Bag

This is a very good price for one of our all-time favorite bucket bags.

Eberjey Paz Breezy Chemise

A very comfortable-looking and understatedly sexy 100 percent cotton chemise from Eberjey.

J. Crew Garment Dye Crew Neck Tee, Black

A perfectly faded black tee from J.Crew that’s a mere nine bucks. It also happens to be on sale in actual colors.

Save Khaki Poplin Easy Shirt

Another 70 percent–offer, this one a poplin button-down courtesy of upscale basics line Save Khaki.

Patagonia Arbor Market Backpack

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.

Something Navy High Waist Midi Skirt

This sweet polka-dot midi skirt is another non-Anniversary Sale deal that got lost in the shuffle.

Natura Bisse The Cure All-In-One Cleanser

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.

Westpoint FlatIron Cotton/Linen Queen Duvet Cover

This duvet cover (available in white, gray, and black) is likely very soft, considering it’s made from washed cotton and linen.

$134 at Macy's
with code: WKND
Marimekko Pikku Lokki Shower Curtain

Marimekko always feels on trend, but this shower curtain feels particularly now.

Hotel Collection Textured Flat-Weave Bath Rug

Pare your new jazzy shower curtain with a more subdued bath mat from Macy’s high-end Hotel Collection.

Marmot Men’s PreCip Eco Jacket

This packable parka from Marmot is very Frank Ocean sitting front row at Louis Vuitton.

Kelty Large Folding Cooler

Speaking of packable, this Kelty cooler folds down to the size of a waffle-maker.

Donald J Pliner Lue Stretch-Strap Flatform Sandals

There’s something a little Charleston Shoe Company–meets–Marni about these Donald J Pliner sandals.

Eileen Fisher Notched-Collar Open-front Woven Jacket

This Eileen Fisher number can work as a casual blazer or as an actual jacket.

Eileen Fisher Short-Sleeve Drape Top

In other extremely discounted Eileen Fisher news, this drapey light-blue top is 81 percent off.

Off-White Quote Tag

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.”

Levi’s 501 Skinny Jean – Coal Black

Some perfectly faded black 501 jeans that’ll be great for the fall.

bkr Spiked Metallic 1 Liter Water Bottle

A punky little water bottle from bkr (that’s also on sale in metallic silver).

Serena & Lily Skye Cotton Throw

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.

Serena & Lily Bowen Rug

The denim gives this jute rug its lovely blue hue as well as some softness.

Serena & Lily Gingham Duvet Cover

This duvet cover looks like something you’d find at Hastens for over $1,000.

Eberjey Betty Noelle One-Piece Swimsuit

All sale items at Anthro are an extra 25 percent off, which makes buying a bathing suit in August feel much more acceptable.

Gulliver Draped Jacket

This jacket, from Anthro’s plus-sized line, will make any outfit feel much more “together.”


It’s the dress equivalent of the Skirt.

Rolla’s Old Mate Overalls

Wear your new striped T-shirt with these cream overalls.

Isabel Marant Meastee Slip On Sneakers

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.

Hunter Salido 60 in. LED Indoor Matte Black Ceiling Fan

If you’re having air-conditioner fatigue, consider basking in the joys of a ceiling fan. This one is decidedly not-hideous-looking.

Saucony Shadow Original

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.

$34 at Huckberry
with code: SNEAKER30
Lululemon City Soul Tank

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.”

Himalayan Glow Salt Crystal Aroma Lamp with Wooden Base

If you’ve been meaning to get in on the Himalayan salt lamp trend, this one’s $4.
