Thursday’s TPS Report: Trimmed Ponte One Button Blazer

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

Limited Trimmed Ponte One Button BlazerI like this colorful ponte blazer from Limited, as well as the navy trim and navy polka dot lining (squee!).  It seems like a fun addition to a navy sheath, or even worn as here (with jeans and a white blouse) for a weekend at the office.  The blazer (which has glowing reviews in both regular and petites) was $98, but today you can take 40% everything off at The Limited with code FASHION, bringing the price down to $59ish. (There’s also a more subdued version in navy.)  Limited Trimmed Ponte One Button Blazer

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Paige Jacquard Jacket

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

Elie Tahari Paige Jacquard JacketOff Fifth has a great selection of workwear pieces right now, including this white jacquard blazer from Elie Tahari.  White blazers are one of my favorite summer staples, and I love the little details — the peplum, the jacquard, the fact that it clearly bears no resemblance to a lab coat.  The markdown is pretty great, too: the blazer was $398, but is now $104.  Elie Tahari Paige Jacquard Jacket

Coffee Break: Julia Perforated Handbag

Ivanka Trump Julia Perforated HandbagHappy St. Paddy’s Day! I’m usually not a fan of “wear the color on the day” holidays, but I WILL say that kelly green is one of my favorite colors for handbags, if only because the color is so unwearable in almost every other iteration (skirts, blouses, sweaters, etc), unless your skin tone is just so. This perforated handbag from Ivanka Trump is a bit on the small side for my usual taste, but it’s too cute not to post today — Amazon also has it in a larger tote size (ooh, or a domed satchel that is the same green but with no perforations). The handbag (pictured) is $125. Ivanka Trump Julia Perforated Handbag

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Black Check Pencil Dress

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

Dorothy Perkins Black Check Pencil DressHappy Friday!  I like the look of this black check pencil dress, available at Dorothy Perkins in sizes 2-18.  It looks interesting but classic, and (ahem) would be a great starting point for mixing patterns — I’d try a a black and white floral scarf, if you have one, perhaps layered beneath a black or white blazer. The dress is $39, but with code DPFW25 you can take another 25% off.  Dorothy Perkins Black Check Pencil Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Sloan Sheath

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

Banana Republic Sloan DressI’ve been eyeing this Sloan Sheath from BR for a few weeks now — it comes in multiple colors, multiple sizes (0-16, regular, tall, petite), and has mostly good ratings. The wild orchid (pictured) and “lava” are still full price at $140, but the black is on sale for $110 — but with code BRLUCKY you can take an extra 40% off your purchase, bringing the price down to $66-$84. Nice. (You may want to try your regular size and one size up, as a few of the reviewers note that the dress runs small.) Banana Republic Sloan Sheath

(Psst: While you’re there, check out the Chantal sandals — I think they’re lovely (for a weekend or evening shindig.))

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Stretch Tweed Zipper Multicolor Jacket

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

Kay Unger Stretch Tweed Zipper Multicolor JacketThis stretch tweed jacket from Kay Unger looks absolutely lovely — I love the soft combination of colors, the flayed notch collar, and the peplum details. I’d probably be boring and keep this jacket in my office to throw on over black (and navy and other neutral) sheath dresses and otherwise all-black outfits, but with a bit of play I’ll bet it would look great with more interesting purple or even yellow underlayers. It was $255, but is now marked to $139 at Bluefly. Kay Unger Stretch Tweed Zipper Multicolor Jacket
