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.
In this week’s roundup of the best deals, we’ve found some fuzzy Patagonia fleeces for both adults and toddlers, on-sale Everlane cashmere, a Martha Stewart–approved Dutch oven, and even some live succulents from Amazon that are 20 percent off (and will help liven up these gray February days).
UGG UGGpure Alena Suede Slipper Bootie
$80(was $120, now 33% off)
The wool (not shearling!) cuffs on these slippers roll up to become booties, in case your ankles get cold.
According to writer Laura Perciasepe, who penned an ode to this Eileen Fisher top back in 2016, “it goes with skinny jeans, with wide-legged pants, with wrap skirts, with linen shorts, at a cocktail party, at a work presentation, at a weekend barbecue, at family reunions, in Williamsburg, in Washington, D.C.” And right now, it’s more than half off, in case you needed another reason to buy.
If you’re looking to upgrade your stained sweatpants from college, or want to dip your toe into sloungewear, try these cashmere pants (that are truly nice enough to wear out in the world, not just in your home).
Martha Stewart Collection Two-Qt. Green Embossed Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven
$40(was $120, now 67% off)
So this is technically a holiday-themed Dutch oven, with a fir tree embossed on the lid. But the emerald-green enamel is so eye-catching — and the price is so good — that we’re choosing to overlook that detail.
If those cashmere sweatpants seemed too fancy for lounging, here are some good old-fashioned (and ultrasoft cotton) sweatpants from Urban Outfitters, complete with elastic cuffs at the ankles and a drawstring waistband.
