Tuesday’s TPS Report: New Yahzi Printed Wrap Dress

Diane von Furstenberg New Yahzi Printed Wrap Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Last Call has a great selection of DvF dresses, blouses, and more right now, including this simple navy wrap dress. I like the fun pattern, the close fit, and the sale: was $299, now $179. I’d wear it with a pop of yellow or purple, and probably go with a plain black or gray blazer to cover my arms. Diane von Furstenberg New Yahzi Printed Wrap Dress

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size alternative.

Coffee Break: Black Croc Okala Pump

Sam Edelman Okala Pump | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’ve bought a lot of stuff through 6pm over the years, and a 20% off discount is pretty rare, so I thought I’d poke around to see what I might buy… These Okala pumps have won a ton of praise from readers and other reviewers (both on Nordstrom, which offers it in many colors) and Zappos, as well as elsewhere). This black croc version looks classic and cool, and is still available in a wide range of sizes. The shoes were $130, then were marked to $85 — but with the 20% off code (6PMCYBMON113020142053), they come down to $70. Nice. Sam Edelman Okala Pump

Here’s a lower-priced alternative that’s currently on sale.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Harper Leather Collar Wool Blazer

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

Rag Bone Harper Leather Collar Wool BlazerI was about to post the very similar rag & bone tuxedo blazer when I spied this little number for 40% off (perhaps part of Nordstrom’s new Flurry of Savings sale).  If you can avert your eyes from the formal shorts it’s styled with, it looks like a great winter blazer. I like the slim leather lapels, the strong shoulders, the three-quarter sleeves — and the sale. The blazer was $595, but is now marked to $357, still available in sizes 4-12.

Frugal Wednesday’s TPS Report: Office Lady Blazer

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

Office Lady BlazerI just learned about this company, Rose Wholesale, the other day — a friend had liked the page so the ad was showing in my FB feed with some alluring title like “Women’s coats for under $25.” I clicked, and while a lot of the pieces look a bit costume-y, there are some pieces for work that I might give a shot if I was tired of the usual budget offerings. Take, for example, this black and white blazer, which has a very Chanel-esque look about it. Reviews seeem positive, too, and for $15.37 it’s hard to go wrong. It’s available in sizes S-XL in white and black. Office Lady Blazer

For bargains for plus sizes, check out the “curvy young contemporary” section at Red Dress Boutique — I recently saw an episode of Shark Tank featuring the founder and was impressed enough by her story to click through to check out the boutique.  Most of it isn’t my taste, but I though this plum blazer for $46 looked nice…

Coffee Break: Le Pliage Neo Tote

Longchamp Le Pliage Neo ToteMaybe it is news to no one but me, but I haven’t seen the colored Longchamp bags with matching leather straps. (Last I remember noticing they still had brown straps widely available online.) I much prefer the more streamlined look, and I think the purple is a lovely, versatile color (but of course I do).  The pictured bag is $180 at Nordstrom. Longchamp Le Pliage Neo Tote

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater

Neiman Marcus Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

So I’ve been eyeing this festive blazer but pondering how to wear it when it’s SO. DANG. COLD. And the answer, in theory, was always: a silk/cashmere turtleneck. But finding one under $300 turned out to be a bit of a challenge — which is why I’m posting a few of my finds today, because a slim-fitted but warm turtleneck is such a great layering essential. I like the pictured one, at Neiman Marcus (was $280, now $125, available in 10 colors), this Max Studio silk turtleneck (available in 14 colors for $128), and this C by Bloomingdale’s cashmere turtleneck (was $158, now $99, available in 16 colors).
