Tuesday’s TPS Report: Hayden-Harnett’s Ibiza Convertible Flight Tote

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Women's shoes/bags: Hayden Harnett Ibiza Convertible Flight Tote - Black
Reader S wrote to us about this great Ibiza tote bag.  We like the roomy bag (19″x18!”), the fact that it can be worn under your shoulder or across your body, and the lightweight nylon, which both won’t stress your shoulders and allows the bag to fold neatly when it’s not in use.  Lovely.  It’s available at Piperlime for $200 with free shipping (Women’s shoes/bags: Hayden Harnett Ibiza Convertible Flight Tote – Black); note also that it’s available in more colors at the Hayden-Harnett website, including red and brown marked down to $99.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Tory Burch’s Ardennes Wool Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
We’re loving this sophisticated sheath dress from Tory Burch, available for presale at Nordstrom’s.  We love the shape — the slight flaring at the knees is sure to be flattering, and the folds at the neck give it a more unusual, lux look than your regular v-neck or scoop neck.  It’s $395 at Nordstrom.  Tory Burch ‘Ardennes’ Wool Dress

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Gap’s Striped Knee-High Socks

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Women: Striped knee-high socks - true black stripe
Stick with us here:  boot season IS coming up, after all.  Perhaps we are insane, but we occasionally like to wear loud, colorful, crazy-patterned socks as our tiny way of — of what? Rebelling against adulthood and dress codes?  Being happy when we take off our boots?  Just generally protecting our feet from boots?  Who knows.  But really, we’re loving these socks.  They’re $7.50 at the Gap ($6 if you buy two pairs or more.)  Women: Striped knee-high socks – true black stripe
