Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Sometimes, my system fails me — I saw this dress months ago, when it was still at a much higher price, and wanted to consider it for a Splurge Monday. But it apparently fell to the bottom of my list, and I only just now rediscovered it. The pro: it’s now $147, down 70% from $490. (The other pros: love that color, I think the seaming is flattering, and, despite the name of the dress, I think it’s a totally work appropriate dress). The con: It’s available in VERY limited sizes. Sizes 10 and 12, it’s your lucky day. Zac Zac Posen Bondage Dress
P.S. If prices and inventory hold for Friday I’ll feature one of the dresses in the AMAZING LORD & TAYLOR DRESS SALE right now — but there are a TON of dresses marked to $39.99 (to which I think you can take an additional 15% off with code STYLE). I noticed this Z Spoke Zac Posen Bondage Dress (featured on Corporette back in 2012) for $39.99, down from $199 — that’s a great deal! For some reason it doesn’t come up if you search by sale, so you may want to hunt by particular designers you love. Suggestions: Pink Tartan, Lafayette 148 New York, Kay Unger (who all have pieces marked down, albeit maybe not quite as low as $39.99). Readers who shop at L&T more often, which designers do you stalk at the store?
P.P.S. Vente-Privee has an LK Bennett sale that just started — it looks like there will be a ton of work-appropriate blouses, dresses, blazers (and yes, shoes) marked down. Looks like most clothes are $65-$125, and most shoes (regularly $375) are around $175. (Click here if you need an invite.)
