Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week’s guest posts are from Auntie M — welcome back! Note that Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale for women and kids has started, with savings of up to 40% on lots of good things, including denim, spring coats, Theory, Cole Haan, Stuart Weitzman, and more — we’ll try to do a deal roundup later this morning!
I love perusing ModCloth, but rarely end up ever buying because the dresses are often either too va-va-voom, or too twee, for the office. This Outdoor Café Dress, though, seems to strike a really nice balance — conservative cut (sleeves! high neckline! knee-length!) but in a rich and interesting color. I also think the pleats are fun — and I’m hoping I’m not the only Corporette reader who has used “pleats” and “fun” in the same sentence without irony. Another plus: the reviews are mostly great for all sizes, from S-4X. I’d pair this with simple black patent pumps and neutral jewelry, letting the dress be the focal point. It’s$79.99, marked down from $114.99 at ModCloth. ModCloth Outdoor Café Dress
