Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Sigerson Morrison’s Purple Pumps

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.
Sigerson Morrison - Sm9188 (Purple) - Footwear
Our love of purple shoes is well documented, and even though it’s late in the season we would still buy these purple suede shoes, on sale right now at Zappos. (The black pair is also on sale, and amazingly they’re still available in a lot of sizes.) We like the delicate starburst pattern on the vamp of the shoe, and the hint of toe cleavage. They’d be perfect for an outfit based in black, navy or gray, and we’d wear them with pretty much any other color for accent (blue or red if you want to be more traditional, green or yellow if you want to take more of a risk.) They were $499; now on sale for $268. Sigerson Morrison – Sm9188 (Purple) – Footwear

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Spiegel’s Signature Relaxed Tweed Collection: Blazer

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

41It took us forever this morning to find something for under $50 that we wanted to wear — have designers heard there’s, like, a recession on? In any event, we like this relaxed blazer from Spiegel. It’s definitely got a tweedy-type pattern, so we would only wear this with solid colors, like a black shift dress to work or a black t-shirt with dark jeans on the weekend. (This drapes a bit too much to really work as a “suit” — it’s definitely on the more casual side — but there is a matching pencil skirt, as well as a long skirt, if you’d like to complete the look that way, too.) It’s $50 at Spiegel.com. Signature Relaxed Tweed Collection: Blazer

Thursday’s TPS Report: DKNY 3/4 Sleeve Cropped Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

DKNY TweedThe 20% off 70% sale rolls on at ShopBop (today’s the last day!) and we couldn’t resist going to see what we could get for less than $100. Our pick for today is this lovely DKNY cropped jacket. Yes, it’s getting a wee bit late in the season for it, but this look has been around for years and will surely be around next fall, as well. We like it worn with a shaped shift dress, or with a long tank or tee and a pencil skirt or trousers. Was $395, now $90 (!!) with the code “20Off70”. DKNY 3/4 Sleeve Cropped Jacket

Sari Gueron Pencil SkirtShopBop is having a great sale through Thursday, taking another 20% off of all items currently marked 70% off. The items are final sale, but you can get some amazing deals — such as this lovely wool/cashmere pencil skirt from Sari Gueron. We like the wale detailing, that thick center pintuck, the silk lining, and the fact that it has functional pockets. We also love, love, love the price: was $695, now 70% off at $208.50, and with the extra 20%, now $166.80. Use code 20OFF70 at checkout. Sari Gueron Pencil Skirt

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: 3.1 Phillip Lim Cotton-Blend Military Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

3.1 Phillip Lim Cotton-Blend Military JacketOooh: a great, splurge-worthy piece from 3. Phillip Lim — a lovely cream jacket to add to your spring working wardrobe. We love the floating epaulets, the toggle closure, and the artfully placed (and functional) pockets. It’s nice with a delicate dress, as shown, but we think it’s even nicer with a brightly-colored tank and a pair of black slacks, or perhaps a pastel tee and a pair of brown or navy slacks. It’s $525 at Net-a-Porter.com. 3.1 Phillip Lim Cotton-Blend Military Jacket

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Banana Republic’s Puff-Sleeve Sweater

Banana Republic’s Puff-Sleeve SweaterWe don’t know why we haven’t noticed this sweater before at Banana Republic, because it’s the exact kind of thing that we stock up on and then wear until it’s falling apart. It’s a cotton/nylon sweater with slightly poufed sleeves — on sale! The blue is down to $25, but there are other colors marked to $35: black, coral, and “chocolate bunny” (a dirty khaki color). They look great on top of a white blouse, and are divine beneath a suit. They’re on sale at Banana Republic. Women: Puff-sleeve sweater – Bella blue
