Thursday’s TPS Report: Classic Blazer

Old Navy Classic Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’ve featured a few striped blazers over the years, and I really like this one — the gray on black, the darts, the cool way the pattern on the collar plays with the pattern on the blazer… and I love that it’s machine washable. The blazer is available in regular, tall, and petite sizes XS-XXL (also in solid black and gray) and is on sale for $32 (was $40) at Old Navy. Old Navy Classic Blazer

Here’s a similar plus-size blazer that’s also machine washable.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Bryant Dress

Emploi New York Bryant Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I only just heard about the brand Emploi New York (although apparently not only have they been around for years, but they often hit Rue La La) and really like the look of their entire collection. It’s founded on the idea that a businesswoman needs a dress that “would not break her bank, would feel great against her skin, and would give her a shot at the corner office.” Nice. The pictured dress is available in sizes XS-L for $129 at Emploi New York. Emploi New York Bryant Dress

Here’s a plus-size alternative.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Bonnie Tweed Print Skirt

Elie Tahari Bonnie Tweed Print Skirt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m really liking the flared skirts that are starting to be everywhere (like the Kenzo skirt we featured a few weeks ago). This black and white pattern looks flattering yet versatile. Bloomingdale’s shows it with a crisp white blouse; I’d also wear it with a fitted, hip-length sweater in almost any color. It’s also available in a deep-red wool blend, and Neiman Marcus has it in dark green tweed. Lovely. It’s $268 at Bloomingdale’s. Elie Tahari Bonnie Tweed Print Skirt

Here’s a lower-priced option, and also a plus-size alternative.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Rozean Pleated Petal Cape Back Dress

Ted Baker Rozean Pleated Petal Cape Back Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Verrrry innnteresting. I saw the name of this dress first and was intrigued, and asked my VA to hunt around to see if she could find a video of it online. (Here you go.) I like it even more, albeit for the right woman (and the right office) — I think if you’re comfortable making a high fashion statement, this dress is really fun, and is work appropriate but very interesting. I like. The dress (also available in green) is $295 at Nordstrom and ZapposTed Baker Rozean Pleated Petal Cape Back Dress

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: I Love Your Dress

ModCloth I Love Your Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This dress is slightly on the casual side, but: 412 positive reviews!! It was sold out a few weeks ago so I put it on my list to check back, and it’s currently in stock in most sizes (S-3X). It’s fun to look through the reader reviews and see women of all shapes and sizes in their dresses — it looks to be pretty flattering on everyone. While you’re at ModCloth, do check out some of their Halloween stuff (I like this sweater with hands), their highly rated Airport Greeting Cardigan, their large selection of tights (yes, including fleece tights), and what looks like a great selection of work dresses (many up to size 3X). The dress is $49.99 at ModCloth (also available in olive and black). ModCloth I Love Your Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Quilted Skirt Dress

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

Loft Quilted DressI keep coming back to this quilted dress… I like the super super softness (reviewers note that it feels like a sweatshirt), the general shape and cut of the dress, and the fact that it’s machine washable. I also like that it’s available in gray and black, in regular, petite, and tall sizes 00-16. I’d wear it on a casual day with shiny silver jewelry, gray tights, and a bold pop of color somewhere — a red, a neon, maybe a nice fall yellow.  It’s priced at $79.50 full price, but try code OURTREAT to get 50% off.
