Felicity Coco Midi Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

This well-reviewed dress looked a bit va-va-va-voom for everyday office for me — but I could see it being a great desk to dinner dress, particularly on a date night.  I like the exposed zipper in the back, the hourglass seaming, and the fact that it’s partially lined and hand-washable.  The price is also great: it’s $118, available in four colors.  FELICITY & COCO Midi Sheath Dress (Nordstrom Exclusive)

ASOS has a ton of great plus-size desk-to-dinner sheath dresses; here’s my favorite (but I’ve just pinned a bunch of others to our plus-size workwear Pinterest board).  Don’t forget, ladies — if you’d like more plus-size content from Corporette, please sign up for our new(ish) plus-size newsletter.

Happy weekend, all!

Update: We’re still working on the video ad problem — I’m trying to go nuclear on the problem in an effort to solve it totally.  If you see any video ads from this point forward, please email me with the URL of the ad (sometimes there is info in the URL that helps us determine what network the ad came from), where you saw the ad (the sidebar, by the comments, at the bottom of the page, etc) and, if possible, please send me a screenshot.  Thank you guys so much!

Alexander McQueen Leather Double Skull Cuff | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

First: don’t forget to check out our roundup of MLK-day sales — we’ll update it as we see ‘em!

I’m not really into skulls for the office — but something about this really aggressive scary McQueen cuff is speaking to me for the weekend. I think it would be superchic with, well, anything, from jeans to a cocktail dress. I like this blue leather and silvertone brass version the best (it kind of says “White Walker / Skeletor” to me, but hey), but it’s also available in pink.

Here’s a skull bracelet with a lower price tag.

A.L.C. Cory Striped Stretch Knit Cropped Top | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Saks seems to have this outfit with the workwear, but I prefer it for the weekend. Note that it’s a look that a LOT of brands are coming out with — the longish skirt, the cropped shirt, the matching. For some reason this look, among all of these looks, spoke to me. Was it the black and white? The sporty stripes? The vague pareo feel to the skirt? It feels modern to me — and yet I can imagine someone like Grace Kelly wearing it (with leather gloves and perfectly curled hair). I’ve overthought this. Just let the stripes overtake you. The top is $245, and the skirt is $395. Happy weekend, guys. A.L.C. Cory Striped Stretch Knit Cropped Top

Here are a lower-priced alternative and two plus-size options.

Splendid Open CardiganSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy New Year’s, guys!  Santa brought me this cardigan in red, and I love it for kicking around the house.  It’s machine washable, super thick and warm, and so so soft.  It’s part of Nordstrom’s killer clearance sale (through Jan. 4), with two colors left: black and navy.  Hmmn, maybe I need a black one too.  It was $98, but is now marked to $58.80.

Holiday Open Thread

Aldo Alpignano Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m a big fan of clutches for hitting the town — it’s a much sleeker look, bag-wise, than I normally manage otherwise. I like this clutch from Aldo for this holiday open thread — it won’t break the bank, it’s wearable for the holidays and beyond, and I can see it looking great with jeans or a dress.  It’s $40, and available in three colors. Aldo Alpignano

Psst: Happy holidays, ladies! We’ll be rounding up the noteworthy sales in the next few days, and next week we’ll be continuing our Year in Review with some of our favorites from 2014 for TPS reports, coffee breaks, and suits. Stay tuned!

Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66 | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Friday! My love of the retro sneaker trend continues, and I may just have to pick up these cool Onitsuka Tiger by Asics shoes. I particularly like the black and “shaded spruce” option, but it comes in 10 different colors. The 1,417 positive reviews don’t hurt either. They’re $85 at Zappos. Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66

Psst: 6pm.com has several color options for the Mexico 66 with prices from $35 to $68. Many are also available at Amazon (although the price range there is $26 to $105 and some sizes/colors are very limited).
