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.
Untitled pictureReader C writes in to note:

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

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.)

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Versace Crocodile-Print Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Untitled pictureWow — today’s aspirational piece is this gorgeous wool crocodile-print cardigan and shell from Versace. We love that it’s still in the “basic black, wear with anything” family but is so detailed and interesting.  We also like that the tasteful animal print adds some liveliness to your basic jewel-neck cardigan.  It’s (gulp) $2190 for the set at Neiman Marcus, available in sizes 4-12.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Banana Republic’s Classic Tailored French Cuff Shirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Women: Cotton non-iron short-sleeve shirt - WhiteWe’re pretty sure we’ve featured these non-iron shirts from BR before, but when reader R wrote to us with such a nice review we couldn’t help but bring it to your attention again:

I love the French cuffs and the cut–no gaping at the bust, and no poufing out at the waist when you tuck it in. The color is beautiful, and fabric has a great sheen to it that makes it lovely under a jacket or by itself. Personally I think it is set off best with pearls, but you could put about any jewelry with it. Best of all, so far the non-iron wrinkle free label is true to its word!

It’s $59 at Banana Republic. Women: Classic tailored non-iron shirt
