Coffee Break: Peridot 1 Dress Pump

Adrienne Vittadini Peridot 1 Dress PumpThis lovely 2″ heel caught my eye over at Zappos — and then promptly sold out. Amazon has more colors but lucky sizes only (unless you like this silvery gray snakeprint one, which has a ton of sizes). It really just does look like a lovely, walkable heel, and I love that relaxed bow detail. It’s $44-$99 at Amazon; the navy patent and champagne snakeprint are available in additional sizes at 6pm for $44-$59. Adrienne Vittadini Peridot 1 Dress Pump


Coffee Break: File Folders in Metallic Prints

Cute Office Accessories - file folders | CorporetteIf you’re on the hunt for cute office supplies, Poppin has a ton of bright, happy desk accessories in lots of bright colors. These rose gold folders aren’t in one of Poppin’s main colors, but they’re too lovely not to post. They’re $10 for a set of 6 at Poppin. Poppin File Folders, Assorted Metallic Prints


Coffee Break: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

OK, I’m not normally one to recommend shows, but this one is too good not to. She’s a kick-ass lawyer! She dresses well (for work at least)! She’s crazy in a way that seems so, so, SO familiar! The show is hilarious, and I highly recommend. You can buy episodes online at Amazon for $1.99-$2.99 each. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Coffee Break: Ordering Stamps Online

stampsMaybe I’m the last to hear about this, but: if you’re a fan of seasonal stamps for your holiday cards (or just pretty stamps in general), do note that you can now order stamps online at USPS and have them sent to you for about $1.50 shipping. Yes, you could also just go to your local post office and buy some, but hey — who needs more errands involving lines and tired grumpy masses? These Charlie Brown ones are cute if you’re into that, but they also have lovely ones for Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid, Kwanzaa, and more. (They also have these awesome Hudson River School stamps.)

Coffee Break: Check Stamped Round Dial Watch, 38mm

Nude Watches for Women | CorporetteWow.  I’ve started going through the Nordstrom clearance sale, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see so many beigey/rosey pink watches — a perfect “nude” watch, if you’re pale.  Let me back up a bit — one of my favorite fashion movies is Audrey Hepburn’s How to Steal a Million, and after watching it the first time I was absolutely obsessed with finding a light pink nude watch like the one she wore.  I looked high; I looked low — I could not find a similar watch. So the fact that there are so many (and part of the Nordstrom sale!) is very exciting.  This Burberry one is on a great sale — it was $495, but is now marked to $330.  Burberry Check Stamped Round Dial Watch, 38mm

Here’s a more affordable option from Kate Spade (the sale is chock full of the brand!).

Coffee Break: Ultralite Professional Hair Dryer

Solano Ultralite Professional Hair Dryer | CorporetteHappy Tuesday! Every year around this time I wait to stock up on beauty purchases because I know that has a 20% off deal around now. It’s a great time to get my basics (I love my Caudalie lip balm) and try a few fun new things (like this!), and if you’re pondering a “big” purchase for yourself, like new brushes or a great hairdryer, now is the time to splurge. I’ve seen readers sing the praises of both the T3 and the Solano dryer — both are available in the sale. This Solano dryer, pictured, is a bit more affordable, coming in at $140 full price — with the sale it comes down to $112. Nice. Solano Ultralite Professional Hair Dryer
