Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Python Print Blouse

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

Equipment Python Print BLouseOK. I swear I am on a blue ban for at least a week… right after I post this lovely blue blouse. I like the floaty look of it on top of a camisole (although I might opt for ones with a slightly thicker strap, like the Old Navy Tami, preferably either in black, white, or blue), and think it would be great layered beneath a blazer or cardigan in the fall or spring. It’s $39 at Last Call (was $198), available in XS-M. Equipment Python Print Blouse

Here’s a plus size version. And, if you’re on the hunt for a more designer-y version of a blue python blouse, here you go.

I love the texture to this pencil skirt — the botanical drawings are interesting but not too twee, and of course, I love the colors. It’s part of a great sale at Anthropologie: it was $149, but is now $79. Anthropologie Botanical Illustration Skirt

Two lower-priced options are here and here, and a couple of plus-sized alternatives are here and here.

Splurge Tuesday’s TPS Report: Textured Cap Sleeve Dress

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

L'Agence Textured Cap Sleeve DressHappy Tuesday, guys! I’m really liking this simple textured cap sleeve dress from L’Agence. I like the drape of the top, the sleeves (which feel a lot more substantial to me than some cap sleeves do), and the general flattering length and color.  It was $450, but is now marked down to $269 at Barneys, available in limited sizes 0-10; check The Corner for more sizes (but it’s still priced $309 there).  (Note in general that The Real Real has a lot of dresses from the brand.)  L’Agence Textured Cap Sleeve Dress

Here’s a similar, more affordable dress available in sizes XS-4X; here’s another similar, affordable option available in regular, petites, and plus sizes.

I like this split-neck cotton dress (pictured), but I also like this draped keyhole sheath dress (but please don’t wear it as tight as pictured on the models). The pictured dress is cotton, machine washable, and available in four colors, sizes XS-XL. It’s normally $35, but is marked to $25 today. New York & Company Split-Neck Cotton Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Slim Ankle Pant

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

Sloan Fit Ankle PantsI have mentioned this before, and I’ll say it again: olive pants are a surprise workhorse for wardrobes. Wear the color with neutrals like black, navy, or white, but — as shown — olive also looks great with a pop of cobalt; YouLookFab has done capsules with olive and light pink, and I’ve always been a fan of olive and purple (both light and dark). These slim ankle pants look lovely, and they’re part of Banana Republic’s 40% off sale today. They were $89, but with the sale come down to $53. They’re available in sizes 00-16, in petite, regular, and tall lengths.  Huzzah. Sloan-Fit Slim Ankle Pant

As usual, the sister sites are having sales as well — Gap is 25% off (code HURRY) and Old Navy is 25% off your order (no code needed); Athleta is offering free 2-day shipping.

Here are two plus-sized options.  If you’re on the hunt for similar cobalt shoes, here’s a link to the BR ones; M.Gemi also has a number of heels and flats in that color.
