Wednesday’s TPS Report: Sleeveless Sheath Dress

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

Adrianna Papell Sleeveless Sheath DressThere are a ton of cute sheath dresses out right now (Ann Taylor in particular has a number, all currently part of the 40% off sitewide sale — if the prices/inventory hold for another day that’s likely where tomorrow’s TPS report is coming from!).  For TODAY, though: I’m loving this simple black sheath dress — love those princess seams and the split round neck, as well as the fact that it’s lined — do note that it’s a pullover style, though.  (Hooray for no exposed zippers, I suppose?) It’s $129 at Bloomingdale’s, available in sizes 4-16. Adrianna Papell Sleeveless Sheath Dress

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Mehira Linen Blazer (and Deal Alert!)

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

Deal Alert: Saks Friends & Family Sale (plus today's pick, this Joie Linen Blazer down to $178)This fun leopard blazer first caught my eye over at Zappos, but for once Saks has the best price — not only is it marked from $298 to $238, but it’s eligible for their Friends and Family sale, so the price comes down to $178. (They also have it in a pale pink “mink” and a creamy “porcelain.”) I like the mix of linen and leopard print — it seems fun but also like a versatile basic. The Mehira cut seems to be a Joie classic (although some have buttons and some do not) — they have it in a “caviar” print at Nordstrom, and there are very limited sizes of other solid colors (navy, black) around the web. Off Fifth has a chambray linen version marked down to $130.89. Ladies, what else do you like to buy at Saks during their F&F sales? Joie Mehira Linen Blazer

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Claudette Mayfair Jacket

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

Claudette Mayfair JacketHappy Monday! The outfit here is not my favorite, but I do like that sharp-shouldered tweed jacket and the nice green. I’d wear it with lavender or a nice dark purple or navy. It’s part of some good sales going at Steven Alan — the blazer was $925 but is now marked to $462. Claudette Mayfair Jacket

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Three-Quarter Sleeve Drape Neck Dress (and: Deal Alert!)

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

Big Sales at Pendleton -- this cotton, washable dress was $138, now $37!Readers continually sing the praises of Pendleton for wellmade workwear, and they’re having a pretty great sale right now, with prices up to 70% off. For today’s TPS Report I’m liking this cotton/modal/spandex, machine washable drape-neck dress — it was $148 but is now marked to $37. I would probably try it in a petite first, since the dress hits just a bit long on the model for my tastes, but I love that color (I know, surprise surprise), and I think the drape neck, waist-defining tucks and shirring are flattering. It’s available in regular and petites for $37. Pendleton Three-Quarter Sleeve Drape Neck Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Diamond Stretch Peplum Jacket

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

Halogen Diamond Stretch Peplum JacketHooray for Thursday! I’m liking this diamond stretch peplum jacket, available in navy and black, both on sale 40%. The black blazer has some matching bottoms still (pencil skirt, pants), but the navy seems to be standing alone. The blazer was $138 but is now marked to $82.80.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Wrap Pencil Skirt

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

Brooks Brothers Wrap Pencil SkirtSure, this pencil skirt is a bit boring — but then, the most versatile, worn-often-and-for-years pieces are going to be pretty boring. I like the hint of stretch in the wool, and the fact that it’s fully lined; the double slits in front also seem interesting and new. The skirt was $298, but is now marked to $119.20 at Brooks Brothers. Brooks Brothers Wrap Pencil Skirt

Psst: This Club Monaco sweater dress is a bit out of season, but it’s finally gone on sale and we ARE having a cold spate here in NYC, so I thought I’d post.  Update: Try code APRIL30 to bring the sweater dress down to $69.
