Coffee Break: Fabric Steamer

I recently saw a little fabric steamer somewhere — I think it was at Bed Bath & Beyond — and I was going to link to it, but this is the one everyone seems to recommend. So if you’re a steamer devotee, this one from PurSteam would be good to keep at the office or bring with you when you travel — I think it’d be very useful wherever you find yourself in need of a steamer, and it’s affordable, too. PurSteam Fabric Steamer

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Zillow Sleeveless Pleated Top

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I usually think of Roland Mouret as doing dresses in an amazing, sort of vintage vibe, but this pleated top is also stunning, I love the folded, origami feel to it — and it’s somehow stiff while also being fitted. I love the color, although it’s described as pink and I’d definitely say it’s more of a purple. It’s almost sold out at Bergdorf Goodman, where it’s $1,045. Zillow Sleeveless Pleated Top

Here’s a more affordable top from MM.LaFleur, and two plus-size options are here and here.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Picks for Work

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Picks for Work from Early AccessDum dum dum… we present Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Picks for Work!

July 24th update: They’ve restocked a lot of products — we’ve updated links below.

I’ll be honest: Based solely on the presale catalog, I was a little worried that this sale was going to be (to quote recent news articles on other matters) “a big nothing burger,” so I’m thrilled to report that it’s actually really good once you wade past all of the ruffles (my God, why all the ruffles?) and odd off-the-shoulder/cold shoulder looks.  There are a TON of great dresses from Eliza J, Ellen Tracy, Classiques Entier, Halogen and Vince Camuto; tons of investment pieces from BOSS, Lafayette 148 New York, and for the weekend a lot of great pieces from AG, Paige, Wit & Wisdom, Articles of Society, Kut from the Kloth and NYDJ. Reader favorite workout gear Zella is included in the sale, as is lingerie from brands like Natori, Chantelle, Hanky Panky, Spanx, and Yummie by Heather Thompson. (Oh, and this reader favorite brand for pantyhose and tights is in the sale too!)

Without further ado, here’s our initial picks for workwear from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…

Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

Kate Spade has little colorful stud earrings that have been hugely popular for a long time now, and since I hate studs I’ve never pulled the trigger. I love that now they’ve got little drop earrings made with the same colorful crystals — I think they’re fun and a little festive. I kind of like the blackish “jet” (pictured) or the blueish “sapphire,” and there’s a lovely “berry” and “emerald” — but they also have a simple clear crystal with either gold, silver, or rose gold. These are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; they’re $31 and will go up to $48 after the sale. If you’re not a big fan of these, Nordstrom has these very similar drop earrings that are NOT part of the NAS but on sale anyway! Bright Idea Drop Earrings

Psst: Note that the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now OPEN to the regular public — you no longer need a rewards card to get access!
