Tuesday’s TPS Report: Ponte knit belted sheath

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

Talbots' Ponte knit belted sheathReader M wrote in to request this dress from Talbots, suggesting to pair it with a black jacket.  We like!  The dark green color is somber without being boring, as is the other colors the dress comes in, a purplish “cherry brandy” and black.  For our $.02, we’d pair it with something other than black — a dark gray, or a navy would be a fun way to play with colors.  It’s nice that it comes in regulars, petites, and women’s sizes, as well.  It’s $159 at Talbots.  Ponte knit belted sheath

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Peplum Blazer

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

Alice + Olivia Hunter Peplum BlazerHappy Monday!  We are loving this deceptively simple blazer from Alice + Olivia.  At first glance, it looks like your basic gray tweed blazer — but on closer inspection you notice the velvet trim, the flounced peplum waist , and the slight shaping to the shoulders.  Fabulous.  We’d wear it with a pencil skirt, or perhaps a high-waisted pant.  It’s $440 at Shopbop.com.  Alice + Olivia Hunter Peplum Blazer

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Doubleweave Skirt – Cheetah Print

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

Reader S writes in to report on this lovely skirt, noting that it’s “a fabulous find for the money. The colors are neutral and it’s not obviously an animal print.    The skirt comes to mid-knee (I’m 5’4””), is fully lined, and is made of polished cotton that hasn’t wrinkled all day.  Best $20 I’ve spent in a long time.”  Nice!  It is, indeed, $19.99 at Target.   Merona® Women’s Doubleweave Skirt – Cheetah Print

Thursday’s TPS Report: S/S Split Neck With Contrast Belt

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

Tahari by ASL - S/S Split Neck with Contrast Belt (Black) - ApparelOk, ladies — put down whatever “important work” you’re doing and hit the 6pm sales going on today — like, now.  Designer sunglasses, bags, and shoes (lots of Marc, BCBG, Theory, etc) as well as specific sales on Stuart Weitzman, Kate Spade, and Vivienne Westwood.  In the clothes arena, we’re loving the Elle Tahari sale — tons of great work dresses for around $76, including this simple split-neck dress.  Love the sleeves, the nipped-in waist, and the flattering split neckline.  Was $128, now $76.80 (available in both black and cobalt blue).  Tahari by ASL – S/S Split Neck with Contrast Belt (Black) – Apparel

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Dot flouncette blouse

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

Dot flouncette blouseWe are always a fan of a dotted blouse, and we love this silk chiffon one from J.Crew.  The tuxedo ruffle is a great detail, and the sheer navy nicely picks up some trends for fall.  It’s $98 at JCrew.com. Dot flouncette blouse

Coffee Break: Multi-Strand Bead Necklace

Kenneth Jay Lane Multi-Strand Bead Necklace We are loving this multi-strand necklace from Neiman Marcus — and for once we actually like it in all of the colors it comes in: black, silvertone, bronze, and golden. We think it would be a great way to make everything from a simple crewneck to a button-down more interesting, and would particularly look great with a boatneck (such as this morning’s TPS). The necklace is $250 at Neiman Marcus.  Multi-Strand Bead Necklace
