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.
Hoo boy: Black Friday is exactly a week away and we are already completely overwhelmed by the already excellent sales bombarding us. Below, the best of the best of the current sales; we’ve paid special attention to items that would make good gifts.
So the Net-a-Porter sale (which we think is its Black Friday sale more or less) is really great at the moment, and at press time at least, there’s still quite a bit of stock left, so we are going to spend a little time surfacing some gems if that’s all right. We are officially Veja-sale watchers these days, and this is a good price for these cheerful green ones.
These Sorel winter boots have a faux-fur “collar” and a sneakerlike sole.
It’s very rare to see RE/DONE jeans for 50 percent off.
Another excellent gift; we’ve written about the joys of the Le Labo solid perfume before.
So we covered a few Coach items in last week’s sales roundup, but we realized that we merely skimmed the surface of the 30 percent off sale. This coin case would be a great gift for a sister-in-law type.
Good for the Pekinese owner in your life.
Our first (and only) nubby fleece of the roundup.
Now, a few things from roundups we’ve written about this week (so many sales!) that you may have missed. Brooklinen launched its Black Friday sale yesterday, and its classic duvet cover is now $87.
We noticed that a bunch of Backpacks were very discounted over at Backcountry — like this Patagonia daypack.
We waded through the Goop sale and love this Goop x Universal Standard jumpsuit.
The Matches Fashion sale launched this week, and like with Net-a-Porter, we want to devote some time to it. Well, wouldn’t you know it, another pair of Vejas.
There’s no two ways about it: $99 is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a white T-shirt, but, oh, Isabel Marant T-shirts are so good. (And it’s even more ridiculous to spend $165 on one.)
These men’s winter boots are from Suicoke, the Japanese maker of fashion-editor-beloved kooky sandals.
We missed a few things from the Moda Operandi sale we covered the other day … like these wood hoop earrings from L.A. jewelry designer Sophie Monet.
Shopbop’s up to 50 percent off sale began this morning, and these cozy, faux-fur-lined boots immediately caught our eye.
We’re sticking some things here that are on sale for today (Friday) only, like these eucalyptus lyocell sheets from Sheets and Giggles (we know, that name!), which we learned are some of the best cooling sheets for those who run hot.
A whole bunch of Frozen II toys are on sale — like this coding kit that will allow your Frozen fan to “conjure an ice palace” or “fill the screen with mini Svens.”
There’s also a CamelBak 40 percent off sale. We think this muted-green water bottle is quite lovely.
