Wednesday’s TPS Report: ‘Kenola – Windowpane’ Shirt

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

Today we’re liking this classic button front from Theory.  We love the light blue windowpane, as well as the slightly wide collar.  We’d wear it with a white camisole beneath it, though — the description notes it’s “slightly sheer.”  It’s on sale at Nordstrom — was $190, now $113, available in sizes petite, small, large, and XL.   Theory ‘Kenola – Windowpane’ Shirt

Incidentally — we will be a bit busy this week (traveling today, helping to run a conference on Thurs. and Fri., and appearing in MN for an AK Anne Klein appearance on Sat.) so comment moderation may be a bit slower than usual. We’ll do our best!

Open Thread: Ways to Relax?

how to relaxToday’s reader mail is asking for an open thread discussing relaxation techniques…

It would be fun to see an open thread discussing what readers do to relax/pamper themselves. I just bought the Discovery Channel “Planet Earth” series, for example, because it was on sale and helps me calm down before going to sleep.

Excellent topic! (And perhaps useful as it is also just in time for Mother’s Day, for those of you who have difficult-to-buy-for mothers.) (Pictured: Day 94, HNT Massage, originally uploaded to Flickr by lintmachine.) [Read more…]

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Speckled Ink Dress

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

Today we’re liking this slightly unusual dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese, which, we think, is conservative enough to be worn to the office.  We like the wrap around the front, the high neckline, and the softness of the jersey.  For a more buttoned-up look, we might wear it with a structured blazer or cardigan — perhaps in white.  It’s available at Anthropologie for $158.  Speckled Ink Dress

Poll of the Week: Professional rainboots?

professional rainboots 2As we are coming up the two year anniversary of this blog, we’ve been going through old posts and realizing which ones we should revisit in the light of new readers (and, awww, remembering the days when it took us 3 hours to figure out how to insert image URLs). So here’s today’s question — are rainboots an acceptable item to wear to the office? Or is there too much of a whiff of, oh, little-girl-jumping-in-puddles?

For our $.02, we love (LOVE) our Hunter boots and consider them an essential for trekking through NYC. (Hunter – Hunter Original (Green), available at Zappos for $115).   When it rains, the subway stop near the office has a massive puddle that everyone else must jump around — we can just plow right through it. The same thing happens with many curbs in the city — gushing water greets you. We’re also fans of the Shuella boot, for those days we were totally unaware it was going to rain. Perhaps our answer would be different if we lived in a city where cars were more the norm… which is why we’re going to take two polls: one for NYCers (or please vote in this poll if MOST people in your city either a) walk or b) take the subway or other public transportation to work), and one for everyone else.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Silk-Cashmere Knit Cardigan

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

Finlly, it’s available online!  We’ve been ogling this gorgeous silk-cashmere twinset at the Boss store for weeks now (where they also have it in a navy and a springy green), but this is the first time we’ve found it online to post.  We love this — silky soft, and a really luxurious look to it in person.  Perfect to wear with skirts or trousers over the summer, perhaps accentuated with a set of pearls.  The set is available online through Saks — the cardigan is $295, and the matching shell is $150.  Lovely.  Silk-Cashmere Knit Cardigan
