Coffee Break: Stellato Flat

M.Gemi Stellato Flat | CorporetteWe featured these pointed-toe loafers a while ago — which seem sleek and cool and a nice update — and now I see that one of M.Gemi’s new styles is very similar, but at a much lower price point. They’re available in hot pink, light blue, white, and black, and come in at $198 — nice. M.Gemi Stellato Flat

Here are flats with an even lower price tag, these come in wide sizes, and these are available in both narrow and wide sizes.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Grayson Jacket

Babaton Grayson Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m usually more in favor of sleeker blazers, but if a slouchy, boxier look is your thing, this silk Grayson jacket at Aritzia is on a pretty great sale — now $77 (was $155).  It’s available in both a light and dark gray, and I kind of like it as styled here with a white midi skirt (but please: no crop tops at work unless, perhaps, you work in fashion).  It’s available in sizes 00-10 (and also comes in solid colors for $82-$115). Babaton Grayson Jacket

Here is an alternative that’s available in petite and plus sizes; here is another plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: Reiss

Reiss Chatelaine Women's SuitFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Oooh: love this dark blue and black woven suit from Reiss, which juuuust went on sale, I believe.  Love the slightly tapered waist and slim lapels on the blazer, and the ankle pants look like they’d be great worn with the blazer or by themselves.  The jacket (Chatelaine Blazer) is now $292 (was $425), and the pants (Chatelaine Trousers) are now $140 (were $190).

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Scuba Fit & Flare Dress

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

Marc New York by Andrew Marc Scuba Fit & Flare DressI found this dress the other day while doing our round-up of fit and flare dresses for the office, and while the striped waist details made it more of a “fun” dress than I was including in the roundup, I still really like it.  It’s the kind of dress that feels a bit more casual to me, but still appropriate for a casual office or casual day — and it just looks so flattering.  Love the scoopneck, the sleeves, and yes, the fun stripey waist detail. It’s machine washable, and available in sizes 4-12 for $138.  Marc New York by Andrew Marc Scuba Fit & Flare Dress

Here’s a plus-sized option, as well as a more affordable one.

Coffee Break: ‘Cora’ Tote

Jordana Paige Cora Tote | CorporetteNew company Jordana Paige caught my eye a while back because I know folks are always on the lookout for quality vegan bags; here the bags are made from “vegan faux crosshatch leather.”  The company was nice enough to send a bag to me, and I liked the material, the shape, and all of the smart little details — the front pocket detaches to be a wristlet; the interior has a divided pocket, the bag has feet, etc. The dark green is a really nice neutral, but it’s also available in gray, a brownish rose, and lavender.  The bag is $159.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Donida’ Elbow Sleeve Sheath Dress

Boss Hugo Boss 'Donida' Elbow Sleeve Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

If you’re the kind of girl who loves sleeves on your dresses, this is the dress for you.  I love the high, flattering neckline (I’d stick with a round, short necklace — pearls or a very delicate necklace without a pendant to form a V — kind of like a station necklace), as well as the the tailored, structured look.  It’s on sale, too: it was $545, but is now marked to $326 at Nordstrom (sizes 4-14 still left).  Boss Hugo Boss  ‘Donida’ Elbow Sleeve Sheath Dress

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