Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Anna Sui’s Military Wool-Blend Cardigan

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

We’re kind of loving that what looks like a crazy pattern is actually a fairly typical wool sweater pattern, but with expert detailing and tailoring from Anna Sui. Absolutely gorgeous. We’d wear it with all black and white, and choose one accessory to pop — red shoes,  perhaps, or an emerald green necklace. It’s $430 at Net-a-Porter.com. Anna Sui Military wool-blend cardigan

Thursday’s TPS Report: Abaete Women’s “Kendra” Silk Color-Block Skirt

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

Picture 5Okay, yesterday’s attempt at an A-line look may have been a swing and a miss, but we’re truly loving this silk colorblock skirt from Abaete, which is ever so helpfully included in Bloomingdale’s 40% off Fourth of July sales. We love the fact that it’s mostly black, but with just a bit of details that remind of us of an Art Deco painting we can’t quite remember right now. Gorgeous. And we love a good discount — this skirt was $242, and is now $86. Abaete Women’s “Kendra” Silk Color-Block Skirt

Suit of the Week

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Wow, there is really not a lot of stock out there for women’s suits right now — perhaps retailers think women don’t wear/buy suits in the summer?  Curious.  In any event, we’re liking this suit for a nice option for the summer, particularly given colors it comes in (both featured).  It comes with a simple sheath dress underneath — perfect for the commute or after-dinner drinks with friends — and then has a very buttoned-up, almost shawl-type look for the day.  Accessories would be tricky — we might put a brooch, or two, on the shoulder (on the same side as the button) to draw the eye up.  And considering the price —  $69 at Overstock.com — it’s hard to go wrong.  Harve Benard Women’s 2-piece Dress Suit
