Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Adalyn Blouse

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

equipment blouses on saleColor me crazy, but I don’t believe I’ve seen Equipment’s silk blouses on sale at Zappos’s sale site, 6pm.com, before — but not only do they have a bunch of nice silk blouses, they have cashmere sweaters 50% off, and they have a ton of super cute (if casual ) shirt dresses. Note that they’ve made some other changes over there also — instead of always having to pay for shipping, you now get free shipping if your item is over $50; unlike Zappos though their return policy remains only 30 days. This particular blouse was $258, but is now marked to $125; it’s available in sizes XS-L. Try code SHOWERS10 to get another 10% off. (Note that Saks also seems to have a pretty good selection of Equipment blouses on sale right now.)  Pictured: EQUIPMENT Adalyn Blouse

For plus-sizes silk blouses, note that Nordstrom Rack has a ton of Classiques Entier blouses for up to 70% off today (regular sizes are in the sale too).

Coffee Break: Diamond Double Row Huggie Earrings

White Gold Hoops: KC Designs Diamond Double Row Huggie EarringsThese double-row huggies have been hovering back and forth between available and sold out for the past few weeks — I love the double rowed bling with the comparatively small size. Fun question, for those of you who’ve bought a lot of “fine” jewelry at department stores: Which department store is your favorite for purchasing fine jewelry for value/quality/style? Have you found a good market for reselling such jewelry if you feel like it no longer fits your style, etc.? (As someone who bought a lot of stuff at Macy’s years ago I’m curious and just starting to think about it — the online resale sites like Tradesy and The Real Real seem too high-end for no-name department store fine jewelry, if that makes sense.)

Here’s a lower-priced option.

Work Dress with Sleeves: Hobbs Megan DressOur daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m crushing hard on a number of dresses over at Hobbs right now, including this lovely number with flattering darting details, elbow-length sleeves, a work-appropriate hem, and a wide, graceful ballet neck. (I also like the Aria dress, the Josefina dress, the Athena dress, the Jessie dress, and the Elenore dress!) The pictured dress is $290, available in UK sizes 8-18.  Hobbs Megan Dress

Here’s a lower-priced option available in regular and plus sizes.

Desk Organizer: Eugene Quitllet Liquid StationCall me a sucker for cool office supplies, but this “liquid station” pen and pencil holder looks beautiful as well as functional. And it’s $43! I think it would make me happy at my desk. Eugene Quitllet ‘Liquid Station’ Desk Organizer

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: ‘Grayson’ Belted Mixed Media Sheath Dress

Belted Work Dress: Lafayette 148 New York 'Grayson' Belted Mixed Media Sheath Dress Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Yasssssssss. This also comes in a pretty rose, but I of course like the black the best. (The rose shows the contrasting fabrics better, though.) Sometimes this kind of faux wrap dress looks a bit like a sloppy robe, but something about this one makes it look sleek and cool. Gorgeous. The black is sold out in the smallest and largest sizes; the rose still has all sizes from 2-16. The dress is $498 at Nordstrom. Lafayette 148 New York ‘Grayson’ Belted Mixed Media Sheath Dress

Two lower-priced alternatives (lucky sizes only, alas) are here and here; here’s a plus-size option.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Fit and Flare Dress

Fit and Flare Work Dress: Merona Fit and Flare DressOur daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I mentioned this dress in our work dress roundup earlier this week, but: look how purty! Fit and flare dresses can be difficult to find for work, but this one isn’t too short, too wide a circle, too twee — it just looks like a great dress for $29 (minus 40% with code MERONA40!). It’s available in burgundy and black sizes XS-XXL. Merona Fit and Flare Dress

Here’s a similar dress without any ratings yet — fewer details on the dress and less of a flare, but more color choices.

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Update: Ooh, Brooks Brothers is having a pretty good sale, online only –up to 70% off clearance. One of the first things I saw was this pretty twist on a classic gray skirt suit (blazer, skirt) — both pieces have lots of sizes left in regular and petite, and would have been almost $800 full price; the whole suit can be yours for just over $200. Wow, and a lot of the Black Fleece pieces (the last of the collection, I believe!) are suppppper discounted, like this lovely wool dress we featured a while ago — it was $650, but is now $195 (lucky size BB4 only, which is similar to an L I think.)
