Halogen® Seamed Knit SkirtYesterday, readers were singing the praises of this great seamed knit skirt from Nordstrom — love that it comes in 6 colors (including fever pink, pictured, as well as black, gray, “grapevine” purple, “cadet” blue, and “chalet” green). It’s fully-lined, has lots of stretch, and comes in sizes 0-16 (reportedly running a bit large). Lovely. It’s $68 at Nordstrom. Halogen® Seamed Knit Skirt

Weekend Open Thread

Kate Spade - Marli Too (Black Patent) - FootwearSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

So when I read about the Kate Spade “Halle” wedge shoe in the NY Times, I was convinced it would be sold out — but sought to find another wedge shoe for you guys for the Weekend Open Thread. It turns out I was half right — good luck finding the Halle shoe anywhere — but here is another remarkably similar shoe from Kate Spade. High comfort ratings? Check. 3″ wedge heel? Check. Cute look in general? Check, check. It’s available in black, camel, and navy patent leather at Zappos Couture for $298. Kate Spade – Marli Too (Black Patent) – Footwear

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Frenchi Ribbed Back Open Cardigan

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

7Happy Friday! Today’s TPS item was suggested by reader E, who writes in about this find: “I have a hard time with cardigans because I’m super petite and extremely short-waisted, so I usually look like I’m swimming in them. My (31 yr old) friend found this lightweight one in the junior’s section at Nordstrom, and I had to buy one for myself. I got it in black, but the Olivine could also be work-appropriate, and some of the other colors might be good depending on the rest of the outfit. I love the buttonless ‘lapels,’ cutaway front, longer back, and — this is key and not in the photo — the gathering in the back for a flattering silhouette.”  Love it!  We think any of the many (many!) colors this comes in could work for the office — for example we’d wear the purple with a black tank, gray trousers, and perhaps a set of pearls or something else light-colored — we might also try adding a brooch to one of the lapels.  It’s $39 at Nordstrom.   Frenchi Ribbed Back Open Cardigan (Juniors)

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.
We’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
