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.
This week’s edition of Friday Sales is all about getting ready for fall, and there’s lots of stuff on sale that’ll keep you warm and help you through this transitional weather, like a packable vest from Lululemon, a Sherpa fleece-lined jacket, and suede Chelsea boots.
Free People Wallflower Midi Dress
$62(was $148, now 58% off)
Macy’s is having a VIP Sale that’s open to anyone who uses the code “VIP” at checkout, and the discount (up to 30 percent) is applicable to a bunch of already on-sale items, like this long-sleeved, floral Free People dress.
Lauren Ralph Lauren Spencer Cotton Sateen Border Full/Queen Duvet Cover
$141(was $335, now 58% off)
Or, if you’re getting the duvet out of storage, now’s also a good time to refresh your duvet cover. The clean lines and navy-blue border of this one remind us of interior-designer-approved (and much more expensive) Frette.
There’s also a bunch of things on sale at Macy’s that don’t require a code, like this Nike fleece sweatshirt that has a little more texture, and thus looks a bit more fashion-y, than your standard cotton crewneck sweatshirt.
This one is a bit out of left field, but if you Velcro the Owlet smart baby monitor to your baby’s foot, it’ll track their heart rate and oxygen levels and let you know, via a phone app, if something is wrong. It’d make a good gift for a worried parent-to-be, and it’s also rarely on sale.
