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.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Celeste Dress

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

Club Monaco Celeste DressI’m a sucker for a good black/navy dress, and this one from Club Monaco is no different. Love the textured weave in the center, as well as the faux leather accents on the shoulder — very cool. It’s $229 at ShopBop. (Do note that ShopBop’s big Friends & Family sale has just kicked off, and you can take 25% off site-wide (with some brand exclusions, of course). Club Monaco Celeste Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Giraffe Print Dress

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

Escada Giraffe Print DressI always think of giraffe prints as being much tighter than this — so I love the abstract, ultra-closeup view on this chic Escada dress. I’d wear it with black (as styled here) and maybe also pastels, like a pale pink blazer or a cornflower blue cardigan. It’s (gulp) $995 at Bloomingdale’s. Escada Giraffe Print Dress

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Walter Iris Blouse

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

Walter Iris BlouseFor some reason, everything I wanted to post today is sold out (darn it) or down to lucky sizes only. Boo. This gray and light blue blouse looks interesting, lovely, and kind of modern — for some reason, I’m seeing it with a navy cardigan, gray ankle pants, and perhaps a hot pink or bright yellow accent somewhere — shoes, delicate necklace, bangle. It was $108, but is marked to $42 at Bluefly today (size S only, alas). Walter Iris Blouse

Psst: Another great lucky-size option: this Lauren Ralph Lauren peplum blouse at Nordstrom in size 10. And — I’ve posted this before, but this Lauren Ralph Lauren fit and flare skirt at Macy’s is now down to $49 (lots of sizes still left).  Ladies, have you found any great deals lately?

Thursday’s TPS Report: Silk Sleeveless Blouse

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

Everlane Silk SleevelessWe just rounded up silky button-fronts, and so it was with some interest that I noted that Everlane just launched three new versions of its’ silk blouse: sleeveless, short-sleeved, and a basic silk shell. I have mixed feelings about wearing sleeveless blouses (laundry reasons, appropriateness reasons — know your office!) but if you’re a fan of wearing them, this looks like a nice, simple basic. It’s available in six colors for $60. Everlane Silk Sleeveless
