Tuesday’s TPS Report: Donali Pleated Dress

BOSS Black Donali Pleated Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Oooh: love this intriguing faux wrapped skirt and dress from Boss Black. Love the high V-neck (and high back), the pleated waistline, the ladylike length, and the fun colors — it’s available in both orchid and black. It was $575, but is now marked to $402.50 at Bloomingdale’s. BOSS Black Donali Pleated Dress

(If you love that orchid, here’s another Boss dress, priced even lower, but with only lucky sizes left.)

Coffee Break: Four-Way Convertible Cardigan

Nic + Zoe Four Way Convertible Cardigan | CorporetteThis is an interesting little sweater that, I think, would be great to keep at the office or take with you on a trip. Not only is it highly rated, but several reviewers talk about buying multiple colors, they like it so much. It comes in regular, petite and plus sizes, in a zillion different colors (some on sale, including the mint, pictured). It apparently has hidden buttons to help you wear it multiple ways — wear it wrapped as a sweater (as shown) for a sleek look by itself, as an open cardigan when you want a lightweight top layer, or as a knotted or twisted shrunken sweater when you want more of a shrug (such as with an empire waist or pretty much any dress). It’s $64-$144 at Nordstrom (most colors $98). Nic + Zoe Four-Way Convertible Cardigan

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Collarless Woven Blazer

Forever 21 Love 21 Collarless Woven Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I have mixed feelings about Forever21 (it’s a big offender for fast fashion, but they do have a lot of very affordable and trendy clothes). This collarless woven blazer is lined, and machine washable. I love the teal (particularly with the coral/red lip!) but it also comes in your basic black. Nice! The blazer is $24.

Here’s a similar plus-size option (and another with just one size left).

Coffee Break: Easy tote

Givenchy easy toteI always think of one of my favorite fashion movies, How to Steal a Million, whenever I hear or see anything Givenchy — Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole are planning a big heist to steal a sculpture (“it’s valued at a MILLION DOLLARS!“) and O’Toole decides Hepburn should dress up as a member of the cleaning crew at the museum.  “What does this accomplish?” she asks grumpily.  “Well for one thing,” O’Toole deadpans, “It gives Givenchy the night off.”  Sigh.  It’s a marvelous movie, everyone should see it. (Oooh, and there’s free streaming with Amazon Prime!)  ANYHOO: I’m digging this “easy tote” from Givenchy, new to the sale section at Farfetch — it looks like a great, structured little tote for work; almost a more feminine version of a briefcase. It’s leather and suede, and on sale for $1,151 (was $1,645). Givenchy easy tote

Here are a few more affordable options if you’re on the hunt.
