Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Bloomingdale’s has some amazing sales right now — there are a lot of pieces marked from the $100+ range down to $25 or so (with lots of lucky sizes, so sort by your size first). However: this fun wrap dress is still available in all sizes. I like the teal, black and white pattern, the draped bodice and shawl collar, and the faux wrap. If the print may seem a bit much, I think a pair of opaque black tights and a black boyfriend cardigan (or some of the big shawl/cocoon cardigans we’re seeing for fall) would go a long way towards muting the pattern. It was $138, then marked to $89.70, and is now marked to $53.82. Karen Kane Cascade Wrap Dress
2014 Update: Note that this dress is now in our Hall of Fame — it comes in new colors and patterns every season (usually in long sleeved, short sleeved, and sleeveless iterations), and you can often find it on sale at Nordstrom or 6pm. Occasionally, you can also find the dress offered in plus sizes.
