Thursday’s TPS Report: Stamped Structure Leather Trim Top

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

Classiques Entier Stamped Structure Leather Trim TopNordstrom has a ton of nice Classiques Entier on sale right now, and I’m liking this structured, thick tee with leather trim details. It seems like a great way to elevate ankle pants or the like for the office — I can particularly see it being great if you tend to run hot (or you have an aggressive radiator in your office). The top was $198, but is now $98.98. (And please check out this gorgeous dress and matching jacket, also — they’re not in the price points for our Thursday posts but I love that dress!) The pictured top: Classiques Entier Stamped Structure Leather Trim Top

Here’s a more affordable option, which also comes in plus sizes.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Annie Dress

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

Hobbs Annie Dress I was excited to see that British store Hobbs not only has a web presence, but is also shipping to America — and they have a pretty nice outlet section as well.  I like the little details on this greige dress — the darts up and down the bodice, the high neckline, the ladylike hem . . .  It’s a bit of a summery dress, but I think it could still be dressed up for fall with some dark brown knee-high boots and a burgundy, olive, or chocolate sweater — what do you say, ladies?  It was $280, but is now marked to $185.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Open Weave Buckle-Front Cashmere Cardigan

Neiman Marcus Open Weave Buckle-Front Cashmere Cardigan | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Gray is not my favorite color, but I may have to reassess that with this beautiful buckle-front cashmere cardigan from Neiman Marcus. It looks great with jeans, as styled, but I also think it would look cozy and professional with a sheath dress, a pencil skirt, a pair of ankle pants, a pair of trouser pants… pretty much anything, in other words. Gorgeous. It’s $295, available in sizes XS-XL. Open Weave Buckle-Front Cashmere Cardigan

Here are a couple of alternatives: lower-priced and plus-sized.

Splurge Monday: Print Side Knot Jersey Dress

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

Etro Print Side Knot Jersey DressHappy Monday, ladies! Today I’m loving this black, white, and red dress from Etro — it looks sophisticated and cool, office appropriate, and casual-evening appropriate as well. I think it looks great with knee-high boots, as styled, but obviously simple pumps would look great too. The dress is $975 at Nordstrom. Etro Print Side Knot Jersey Dress

Here’s a similar option at $295, and a similar option in Hall of Fame Karen Kane dress at $128.  On the plus side, here’s a long-sleeved option; there are many sleeveless versions on sale.

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Ponte Skater Skirt

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

Ponte Skater Skirt (24"! long!) | CorporetteI was recently perusing a guide to budget fashion and found a bunch of stores I’d never heard of before, including DownEast Basics.  There, I found this ponte skater skirt, which looks like a great alternative to all of the minis I’ve seen elsewhere.  To compare: this one is 24″ long; The Limited’s popular skater skirt is 19.” (This was standard in our recent hunt for flared skirts, particularly among the less expensive options.)  This one comes in black and blue in sizes XXS-XL, and is $27. Try code ANNIV20 to take another 20% off in their anniversary sale.   Ponte Skater Skirt
