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 dive into the best of the internet’s sales bins includes various leopard-print bags, a Strategist-approved mattress, and a zippy shower curtain from Marimekko.
These come courtesy of Sidewalk, Madewell’s line of sneakers that have a Vans-like look but are apparently more comfortable thanks to their MWL Cloudlift insoles.
The “bead chain” trim is a nice touch.
A classic, Dieter Rams–designed alarm clock from Braun.
As we noted the other day, Shopbop is having quite the sale, where pretty much everything under $500 is 20 percent off, and everything over $500 is 25 percent off. We highlighted a different pair of Levi’s earlier today, but wanted to note that these “low stretch” Wedgie jeans from Levi’s are also 20 percent off. Note: The sale ends today (Friday).
These classic white Supergas would look great with the aforementioned jeans.
A leopard-print Baggu is a safe way to experiment with leopard print.
If you’ve been meaning to jump on the Fjällräven train … now’s a good time.
If you’re willing to spend a little more, that’s where the real deals come in: For instance, this incredibly warm and stylish Woolrich parka is $213 cheaper than usual.
Allswell is Walmart’s in-house upscale mattress line (we’ve slept on an Allswell, and liked it). Right now the Luxe Hybrid mattress (it’s called a hybrid because it’s made from a mix of foam and charcoal) is on sale as part of a “home faves” sale over at Walmart.
This knife set would make a great housewarming/hostess gift.
A bright-red tea kettle (kept out on the stove) is a nice way to gussy up a kitchen.
All of your everyday facial powder needs (several shades of blush, eyeshadow, and bronzer) in one snazzy palette, courtesy of Nars.
A festive shower curtain courtesy of Marimekko.
A cozy Pendleton throw for the cozy season ahead.
A very autumnal maxi dress from Anthro Plus.
We like that this J. Crew denim boilersuit has a tie at the waist (for when you’d rather not direct attention to that particular area).
A marled cotton sweater that (a) you won’t overheat in, and (b) you can machine wash.
These seamless briefs from Chantelle are supposedly extremely comfortable.
A real “casual Fridays” sweater right here.
Tacking this Urban Decay palette at the end, because it will surely sell out soon.
