Wednesday’s TPS Report: Outdoor Café Dress (Plus, Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale!)

ModCloth Outdoor Cafe Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week’s guest posts are from Auntie M — welcome back!  Note that Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale for women and kids has started, with savings of up to 40% on lots of good things, including denim, spring coats, Theory, Cole Haan, Stuart Weitzman, and more  we’ll try to do a deal roundup later this morning! 

I love perusing ModCloth, but rarely end up ever buying because the dresses are often either too va-va-voom, or too twee, for the office. This Outdoor Café Dress, though, seems to strike a really nice balance — conservative cut (sleeves! high neckline! knee-length!) but in a rich and interesting color. I also think the pleats are fun  and I’m hoping I’m not the only Corporette reader who has used “pleats” and “fun” in the same sentence without irony. Another plus: the reviews are mostly great for all sizes, from S-4X. I’d pair this with simple black patent pumps and neutral jewelry, letting the dress be the focal point. It’s$79.99, marked down from $114.99 at ModCloth. ModCloth Outdoor Café Dress

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

Sam Edelman Lucca Bootie Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

The Nordstrom shoe clearance sale is on, and it’s pretty fabulous.  There’s a good selection from brands like Cole Haan, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, L.K. Bennett, Kate Spade New York, Børn, Anyi Lu, and more! (Some are lucky sizes only, so you should definitely filter by your size). For today’s holiday open thread, I’m liking these chic Lucca booties, from Sam Edelman — I’m not normally a fan of that much hardware, but something about it just seems awesome.
