Coffee Break – Cleo B Jamila Suede Wedge Shoe

Cleo B Jamila Suede Wedge ShoeThere are lots of Cleo B shoes on sale at ASOS — and while I’ve never heard of the brand before, they look like they all have a slightly interesting and inventive take on your normal conservative pumps and slingbacks.  Take the heel of the purple suede wedge, for example — I like the artistic curves and the cracked black leather trim.  It was $501.34 at ASOS, but is now marked to $241.72.  (Alas: limited sizes only.)

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Boyfriend Blazer With “Fluro” Trim

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

ASOS Boyfriend Blazer With Fluro TrimI’m not sure how I feel about the entire suit for this look (although A for effort, ASOS — a fresh take on a suit that also might fly in an office! Hooray!) but I actually quite like the gray blazer with fluorescent yellow trim. Love the flouncy details at the back, and the really classic cut with that pop of bright, bright color. It’s available at ASOS in gray/yellow and navy/orange for $99. ASOS Boyfriend Blazer With Fluro Trim

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Darryl Midi Dress In Stripe

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

Whistles Darryl Midi Dress In StripeI’m really digging the simplicity of this wool blend dress from Whistles, available at ASOS. I like the stripes, and the casual, non-va-va-voom nature of the dress, mixed with fun details such as the directional change at the neckline and the cuffs. For the office I’d wear this with an opera-length necklace, doubled, a more structured, wider belt than what’s shown here. With warm weather I’d go for nude-for-me pumps, but in colder weather (for a more casual office) I might try black tights with brown knee-high boots. It’s $136.35 at ASOS.

(Do note — for some reason with the smaller picture it looks like there’s a psychedelic aspect to the stripes — they’re just stripes.  Honest.)

Thursday’s TPS Report: Ponti Pencil Dress with Zip Detail

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

ASOS Ponti Pencil Dress with Zip DetailI’ve been admiring this dress at Asos for a while now — love the clean, almost sharp lines. I like the fact that Asos has it in seven colors, as well — it’s always a vote of confidence when the retailer does that, but where else are you going to find a bubble gum pink pencil dress, or a peacock green pencil dress? It’s also available in burgundy (pictured), navy, black, white, and the almost-sold-out fiesta. It’s $81.81 at Asos (now offering free shipping both ways, no minimum spend).

Coffee Break – Loose Rib Knitted Snood

ASOS Loose Rib Knitted SnoodHmmn: I’m kind of loving the idea of a snood right now. It’s a scarf! It’s a really chunky necklace! It’s a cowl neck! It can even be pulled down and worn around your shoulders, a bit like a wrap/shrug. Asos has a nice looking one in a variety of fun colors, including a lovely dark green (pictured), a red, a bright yellow, a dark caramel, and a beige. Prices range from $14.38 to $21.56.

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Bengaline Tab Front Pencil Skirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Today’s guest post is from Capitol Hill Style. Thank you for guest posting this week, Belle!

ASOS Tailored Bengaline Tab Front Pencil SkirtThere is nothing like the look of a crisp blouse tucked into a simple black skirt. Unfortunately, keeping the blouse from shifting during the day can be a bit of a chore.

This tab-front skirt from Asos ($43) has an elastic waistband to keep the skirt in place. I’d wear it with a pair of Spanx (to ensure a body-conscious fit that flatters), a light grey button down, and a black statement necklace. It would also look fabulous with a pair of tights and black booties. ASOS Tailored Bengaline Tab Front Pencil Skirt
