Thursday’s TPS Report: Denisa Skirt

Club Monaco Denisa Skirt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Club Monaco is having a pretty great sale right now — take 30% off the sale pieces, and take 40% off the clearance pieces. Nice. There are a lot of lucky sizes left, so sort by your size first, but for example look at this fun fluted skirt. Originally it was $170, but it’s now marked to $99 — use code THESALEONSALE to take another 30% off. There are only limited sizes left, alas (0-6), but here are a few other picks: this silk tank, this crisp white jacket for work, and I’m a bit obsessed with this textured winter coat that was $995 but comes down to $560 with the sale.

Here’s a plus-size option.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: ‘Kate’ Striped Silk Crepe de Chine Shirt

Iris and Ink Kate striped silk crepe de chine shirt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

The Outnet has a ton of great stuff right now, even if most of it is lucky sizes and out of season. BUT: I like this chic silk blouse from Iris & Ink — the blue stripes seem interesting and summery, and the drape/weight of the silk looks perfect. The blouse is $150 at The Outnet.

Two lower-priced options are here and here, and a plus-size alternative.

PSSST: Shoe company M.Gemi is supposed to be having a private sale that starts today — steep discounts on their already affordable luxury shoes.  (Seriously, the loafers they were kind enough to send me had some of the softest leather I’ve ever touched!)  It doesn’t look like anything is up yet, but I’m going to keep checking this link.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Draped Bahia Print Dress

1 by O'2nd Dress - Draped Bahia Print | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m seeing a lot of appealing dresses with this kind of elasticized waist — I like the way they look effortless and cool, yet still professional for a business casual kind of day. (And, huzzah, this one has pockets!) This one is on sale at Bloomingdale’s — it was $375 but is now marked to $282. Sizes only go from 0-8 (um…) but Boden’s Hettie Dress is a good comp (with sleeves) in regular and long sizes up to 18. Pictured: 1 by O’2nd Dress – Draped Bahia Print

A few lower-priced options are here, here, and here.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Colorblock Sheath Dress

Victoria Beckham Colorblock Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I always love the polished, sleek looks of Victoria Beckham dresses — and this fun colorblocked one looks gorgeous. (I’m also in love with this solid green sheath dress and this solid orange sheath dress, if those are more your style). I am sorry to tell you that they all not only have an exposed zipper in back, but a two-way zipper (gaaaah), but some of the seaming and colorblocking here were too artistic to not share. It’s a mere $2600 (limited sizes only). Victoria Beckham Colorblock Sheath Dress

A few lower-priced options are here, here, and here (plus sizes).

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Love Paris Print Tencel® Shirt

Foxcroft Love Tencel Shirt

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

Foxcroft has been on the scene for years for women’s blouses — tons of iron-free, wrinkle free buttons fronts in regular, petite, and plus sizes, almost all of them machine wash/tumble dry low.  I haven’t noticed their Tencel line before, though, which promises to be supersoft and a bit drapier.  I like this spotted little number which, upon close inspection, turns out to be abstract little hearts.  Normally this would drive me insane but I think it works here.  It (and lots of other Foxcroft blouses) are in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, which JUST opened up to everyone (although cardholders still get double points through July 19).  I’ll do a roundup today of what’s still left from my favorites… Has anyone who bought during early access started assessing what you bought, and what’s going back?  The Foxcroft shirt pictured is $59.90 — it’ll go back up to $92 after the sale ends August 3.  Foxcroft ‘Love Paris’ Print Tencel® Shirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: Colorblocked Sheath Dress

The Limited Colorblocked Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This is one of a number of sheath dresses we’ve seen lately that are being styled on the model with a loose, relaxed fit, and after years of the body-con-dress-as-work-sheath it’s great to see the change. I like the hidden zipper, the full lining, and the fact that it’s machine washable (and tumble dry!). It’s also available in petite and tall sizes, huzzah! It’s $62 (was $89) at The Limited (online only). The Limited Colorblocked Sheath Dress

Two plus-size options are here and here.
