20 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From & Other Stories to Vince


On and around July 4 is when the summer sales start getting good. So when you’re not out doing cannonballs into your friend’s pool or barbecuing something delicious on a roof, you might as well buy some very discounted goodies. We found three pairs of festive summer shorts, the perfect linen dress, some Bang & Olufsen portable speakers, and a pizza pool float.
