Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Nanette Lepore’s ‘If You Leave’ Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Wow — beautiful jacket from Nanette Lepore.  The bright, happy color (which still strikes us as autumnal) is gorgeous, and the ruffles, poufed shoulders, and tulip hem are slight enough that the jacket doesn’t scream “TRENDY!”.  We’d wear it with grays and navys — trousers, sheath dresses, even A-line skirts.  It is a bit of a splurge, though:  $448 at Nordstrom’s, in sizes 2-12.

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Ann Taylor Loft’s Bow Tie Scoopneck Tee

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Untitled pictureThere are some great sales going on at Ann Taylor Loft right now. For example, take this slightly embellished tee which is final sale (not everything is, though — be careful as they have not clearly delineated which is which.). This baby was $34, now marked to $12.99, and with the automatic 25% off it comes down to around $9.75. We found another 15% off coupon online (104002172) that brought the final price down to about $8.25. Not bad for a top that we’ll wear with trousers, skirts, and possibly even with a slim turtleneck beneath. It’s available in fuschia, mauve, blue (pictured), gray, black, and white, in regular and petites. Bow Tie Scoopneck Tee

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Zig Zag Stitch Flare SkirtAs someone pointed out on the thread for yesterday’s TPS, there are a ton of good sales right now at Jones New York’s website, including this full skirt.  (Pencil skirt-haters, this one’s for you.)  We’d wear this skirt with a short sweater jacket, a crisp blouse,  and either tall boots or very tall heels.  Was $119, now $95, at jny.com in sizes 4-16.  (Free shipping on purchases over $75, and take another 20% off on purchases over $100.)  Zig Zag Stitch Flare Skirt

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Jones New York Open-Front Textured Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
We’re liking the drapy cardigans of the season, but some of the very lightweight ones can look a little too unstructured for the office. That’s why we like this textured cardigan from Jones New York. The camel hair color is sophisticated (we’d wear it with browns or blacks), and perhaps a basic white tee if we didn’t want to wear the matching cowl-neck shell. The cardigan is $109 at Macy’s, in sizes S-XL.  Jones New York Open-Front Textured Cardigan

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Trina Turk’s Statuesque Ponte Knit Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
We’re loving this ponte knit dress from Trina Turk. The empire waist, the detailing (velvet, silk and bead) on the shoulder, the flattering V-neck, and the ladylike length all strike us as perfect for the office.  We like it in both the merlot and the more sedate charcoal.  It’s $268 at Nordstrom’s in sizes 0-12.  Trina Turk ‘Statuesque’ Ponte Knit Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Bailey 44’s “Partners in Crime” Boyfriend Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Wow.  We adore this blazer from Bailey 44.  The stark white trim around the collar and pockets — the clean lines — the notched collar — great.  We’d wear it with cigarette pants or skinny trousers, and maybe add a bright color (red, yellow) in an accessory. It’s available at Nordstrom’s for $350 in sizes XS-L.   Bailey 44 ‘Partners in Crime’ Boyfriend Jacket
