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

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Donald J Pliner Women’s Zora

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

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Perfect V-Neck Sweater

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

I got four of these lightweight sweaters from Martin and Osa and might go back for more… they’re a silk blend, really soft, perfect warmth for an air conditioned office, look good alone or under a suit jacket (and they don’t get bulky), plus they hang well on the body and don’t pull across the chest, which is nice for those of us who regularly encounter that issue. I got mine in the store for $19.95 and used a 20% coupon they mailed to me, but there are plenty of coupon codes floating around the internet.

Great deal, and the sweaters are classic.  We’d wear a button-down beneath them for the office, or perhaps layer a tank in a contrasting or complementing color.  They’re $19.95 at Martin & Osa.  Perfect V-Neck Sweater

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Suzi Chin Boutique Ruched Faux Wrap Dress

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

Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Ruched Faux Wrap DressWe’re loving the asymmetrical ruched waist on this faux wrap dress, as well as the deep, rich color.  We’d probably wear with a brooch, or possibly a long, opera-length necklace.  It’s $128 at Nordstrom, available in sizes 2-14.   Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Ruched Faux Wrap Dress

(2015 Update: Note that the dress is now sold under the Maggy London label at Nordstrom — you can also sometimes find the dress at 6pm.)
