Wednesday’s TPS Report: Banana Republic’s Sleek Flap-Pocket Blazer

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

Women: Sleek flap-pocket blazer - Black
Banana Republic’s new online-only sale of 30% off “work basics” includes a lot of classic pieces. Take, for example, this cotton-blend blazer. It was $150; but is now $105 (through 7/26). It’s got matching bottoms, comes in petites and talls, and is available in sizes 00 through 16. We love a deal on a versatile piece! Women: Sleek flap-pocket blazer – Black

iconOk, we’re totally loving this black and gray plaid dress. Great neckline, great hemline, great pattern. In order to keep the floaty fabric from seeming too “dinner party” we’d keep everything kind of neutral and professional: black or white cropped blazer (not a cardi), and closed-toe pumps to match. It’s available at Dillard’s for $169 (among, we might add, quite a few cute other Melani dresses that reader C alerted us to!) Antonio Melani “Chelsi” Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Tory Burch’s Simone Sweater

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

simoneWe had hoped this sweater would be part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale, but alas, it is not. We love, love, love, the print and the flattering pink shade. It’s fun, it’s feminine, but it’s neither Barbie (the black pattern tones down the print) nor goth (imagine the sweater in a dark red). We’d wear it with gray slacks and a black jewel-neck t-shirt beneath, or perhaps over a black sheath dress. Tory Burch ‘Simone’ Merino Wool Cardigan

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Nine West’s Walcott Pumps

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Walcott
Today’s reader-suggested TPS comes from reader L, who writes:

I just got the Nine West “Walcott” shoes in black – and they’re perfect. I want them in every color. Not too high a heel, not too pointy at the toes (but also not so rounded they look like toddlers’ shoes) – they’re very comfortable, effortlessly professional, and inexpensive (on sale for $50!). I think the style won’t be discontinued any time soon, I’ve seen different colors introduced each season.

We think these are a great, reasonably priced alternative to the Cole Haan and Manolos out there. Note also that these shoes are available up to a size 12. They’re available at NineWest.com for $50.

Belle by Sigerson Morrison - 5736 (Blue Suede) - Footwear
We’re lusting after these lovely blue leather flats (with suede insets) from Sigerson Morrison today. We’d wear them with pretty much anything, but particularly gray slacks and a yellow or green blouse. Now $165 at Zappos (they were $299). Belle by Sigerson Morrison – 5736 (Blue Suede) – Footwear
