Wednesday’s TPS Report

One of the things we’ll be doing on this site is looking at one piece of office-appropriate clothing each day, in a range of prices. Mondays will be sky’s-the-limit; Fridays will be “trying to get out of debt to quit.” Today’s find is a beautiful David Meister sheath dress in a happy blue. It’s knee-length, which is appropriate. When you buy it you shouldn’t buy it too tight — this thing will hug your body. I think it would be great paired with a khaki-colored jacket, or a navy or black cardigan. (Definitely cover the arms at the office, though — sleeveless is not appropriate unless the air conditioning is malfunctioning!
