Coffee Break: Amazon Prime Day

As you MAY have heard elsewhere on the Internet: it’s Amazon Prime Day! What are the best deals you’ve found? I’ll try to add a few of the other deals I’ve bought and found in this thread, but right off the bat I’ll say that if you don’t have an Amazon Echo — or already have one and have a big enough space for a second — then go forth and get an Amazon Echo because they’re 50% off today and in general a great product. We love our Amazon Echo, and use it as a general Bluetooth speaker and as a way to voice control other smart things around the house (for example, we’re just getting into Phillips Hue lights, some of which are also on sale as part of Prime Day). I got a Google Home for a birthday gift a while ago and kind of hate it, honestly, but I’ve heard they’ve had some updates that might make it more worthwhile for me.) In any event: the Echo is $89 today. (I don’t have a Tap or a Dot or any of the other little things — readers who do have them and use them, please share your thoughts in the comments!) Amazon Echo

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Ikat Belted Peplum Top 

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

This really cool top from Theory looks very stylish and breezy, but also professional — and I love the tie waist, the silk material, and the black and white. I also love the way the belt itself has little striations on it. It’s still available in a couple of sizes at Theory for $285 (and also in a long-sleeved version). Ikat Belted Peplum Top

Two more affordable options are here and here; here’s a plus-size option.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Wool Dress

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

If you’re looking for a work-appropriate shift dress, it can be really tough to find one that’s long enough — so many designers seem to equate shift dresses with mini dresses! This Prada dress is not only long enough for work, though, it’s a nice sturdy wool to hold its shape, and I like the pleats at the hem and on the bodice.  I’d wear it with a colorful cardigan for work and some stylish, comfortable flats.  The dress is $2110 at Net-a-Porter. Wool dress

This reader favorite dress is similar, comes in regular and plus sizes, and ranges in price from $76 (on sale) to $138.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Trim Shell

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

If you haven’t gotten anything from the Who What Wear collaboration at Target, I recommend it — not only have I been happy with everything I got there (for the price), it’s always nice to support a brand that comes in a full range of sizes (XS-4X).  A reader alerted me to this gorgeous ruffle trim shell, and I can see why she’s drooling over it — it looks like a great layering piece beneath cardigans, blazers, and more. It comes in numerous prints for $22- $25. Women’s Ruffle Trim Shell – Who What Wear™

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Striped Button Front Blazer

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

Ooh: apparently I’m into stripes this week. LOVE the striated, almost agate-like look of this blazer from Tommy Hilfiger. I also love that the blazer has functioning patch pockets, and a really versatile light gray color.  It’s $139 at Lord & Taylor, but take 20% off with code SALE. Striped Button Front Blazer

Here’s a similar blazer with more of a Southwestern vibe in lucky sizes down to only $33, and a blue/green/yellow/ivory striped blazer for $84. Not similar at all, but this blue knit blazer is only $29 and looks like a great deal. In terms of plus sizes, I can’t find a similar one in gray, but Talbots has several striped blazer options.

Splurge Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Belted Stretch-Wool Flounce Dress

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

I hope everyone had a great long weekend and got some reprieve from the office! For this lovely day, I’m already thinking about fall, and this gorgeous dress from Carolina Herrera looks fabulous. I love the simple bodice and sleek look combined with that flouncy, kicky shirt — it looks very fun. Of course, because it’s Carolina Herrera, it’s expensive ($2,190), but it’s a great statement piece if you’re looking for one. The dress comes in sizes 4–16 at Neiman Marcus. Belted Stretch-Wool Flounce Dress

Looking for something more affordable? There are tons of flouncy options in all size ranges here (and today they’re all on sale).
