Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Black Halo’s Donna Sheath Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Black Halo Donna Sheath Dress in BlackWe’re loving this sheath dress from Black Halo — the high neckline, the ruched waist, the peplum, the slightly dolman-like sleeves.  We even like the exposed zipper (which is less noticeable on the gray version or the red version if you disagree).  It’s $349 at RevolveClothing.com.  Black Halo Donna Sheath Dress in Black

Bargain Wednesday’s TPS Report: Old Navy’s Satin-Trim Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Women: Women's Satin-Trim Cardigans - Bougainvillea PinkHappy Thanksgiving, everyone! (More importantly, happy long weekend). For today’s TPS, we were actually torn between two items — this lovely sweater and this off-season but simple shift dress.  We ultimately decided that the sweater is what we really like — particularly for right now.  We like the double satin edging, the bright pop of color, and the long length — perfect for adding a belt or wearing open over a shift dress.  It’s $29.50 at Old Navy, available in 6 colors and sizes XS through XXL in regular petites, and talls.  Women: Women’s Satin-Trim Cardigans – Bougainvillea Pink

Similarly, Bare Necessities seems to have started its Black Friday sale already — tons of basic t-shirts (like this one) on sale, as well as shapewear.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: St. John Collection Linear Texture Skirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Avert your eyes from the hideous shoes, and feast your eyes on this great skirt from St. John’s.  Blue is an unusual color for a skirt, but we think St. John’s pulls it off here — we like the texture, the horizontal pattern (which we think is small enough that it won’t be unflattering) and, yes the fact that it’s designer.  Available in sizes 4-16 for $234 (formerly $395) at Nordstrom’s (which also seems to have some ridiculous deals on dresses (lucky sizes only)).

Oooh, also: Saks is having a one-day sale today, and a lot of our previous mentions — such as this — are now on sale.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Floral Check Trenchcoat

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
We’re loving the look of this classic-with-a-twist: a belted trenchcoat from Burberry.  The trench itself is as classic as it gets:  double-breasted, self-tie belt, slash pockets, epaulets, even gun flaps, for heaven’s sake.  The pattern, though, is so interesting — a black floral pattern crawling across a black and white checkered pattern, almost as if it were a shadow on a wall.  We love that they kept it black and white, also.  It is (gulp) $1495 at Saks, available in sizes 2 through 12.  Floral-Check Trenchcoat

Today, we’re liking this paneled wool skirt from Nordstrom’s.  We like the knee-grazing length of it, as well as the flattering A-line shape — it’s a perfect basic for the winter.  It’s $78 at Nordstrom’s, available in sizes 2 through 16.  Semantiks Stretch Wool Skirt
