Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Delia*s Calista Crochet Tunic

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
We’ve been ogling the Delia’s catalog lately — they just seem to have a ton of fun weekend-wear.  So when we saw the “take $20 off of $50 with code 20Del50” promotion, we knew we had to feature it for bargain Friday.  So:  for a casual day at the office, we like this crochet tunic, in black or deep purple — we’d layer it with a slim-fitting turtleneck beneath it, a boyfriend or shawl cardigan on top of it, and simple trousers that fit closely through the waist and hips and flare slightly at the leg.  (And, oh yes, in the summertime, we’d rock it with jeans on the weekend.)  It’s $34.50 at Delia’s in sizes S-XL.   Calista Crochet Tunic

Thursday’s TPS Report: Charter Club Sweater, Cashmere Ruffled Henley

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Macy’s has a ton of cute cashmere sweaters on sale right now, and we’re liking this cashmere henley with just a few feminine ruffles.  We like the small, pretty buttons, the bright pop of color, and the plain edge at the bottom.  (In our experience, ruffles never look good at the bottom of  a sweater.)  This one is on sale for $94.99 (formerly $130), and is available in black, blue, red, purple, and gray in sizes S-XL and petitesCharter Club Sweater, Cashmere Ruffled Henley

Today, we’re liking this plaid cardigan from Saks.  We love the graphic, black and white look — it seems both precise and hip.  We’d wear it over a colored sheath dress, and accessorize with contrasting colors — or perhaps wear it with black pants and channel our inner French stylist by wrapping a boldly patterned scarf around our neck.  The cardigan itself is $208 (there is a matching shell ; if you want to go for the whole look and get the matching shell that’s $148; both are available in sizes S-XL.   CLOTHES (real) Plaid Print Cardigan

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

Today we’re liking this — yes — peeptoe pump from Donald J Pliner.  We like the very (very) small opening at the toe, and the slight curve of the heel; we also like the leather detailing on the back of the shoe.  Best of all, it’s on sale for 25% off — was $337, now $252 at Shoes.com in sizes 6-10.  See it from all angles at:  Donald J Pliner Women’s Zora
