Coffee Break – Media Ballet Flat

Naturalizer Women's Media Ballet FlatThis one goes out to all the ladies who dislike wearing heels — loving the look to this simple ballet flat from Naturalizer. The low vamp, the classic buckle, the rubber soles — it looks classic and comfortable. It’s pictured here in “oxford brown,” but it’s also available in black, a reddish “cab sav,” a “classic olive,” and a navy. It’s $79 at Naturalizer, but Amazon has limited sizes available for as low as $67.96. Naturalizer Women’s Media Ballet Flat

Coffee Break – No Slouch Medium Hobo

kenneth cole slouch hoboA few months ago, I attended a press event for Kenneth Cole (actually a really lovely dinner hosted by KC himself) and all of the bloggers got to choose one piece to take home with them.  I got this suede bag in a purpley pink and I have to say it’s really lovely.  The suede is so much more interesting than I was expecting for the price point — it’s textured and soft and oh-so-touchable, and the studs on the top handle make it easy to carry and grab.  The bag itself is nice and roomy, but slouchy enough that it doesn’t seem huge if it’s only half-full.  It’s available in brown suede at the Kenneth Cole website, but you can also get in a multitude of plain leather at 6pm and Amazon.  The brown suede is $328.  No Slouch Medium Hobo Kenneth Cole New York

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Pouf Sleeve Equestrian Jacket with Patch

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

Smythe Pouf Sleeve Equestrian Jacket with PatchLoving this gorgeous Smythe blazer, in part because it combines two things I don’t normally think of as going together: linen and leather elbow patches. Love the sharp shoulders with a bit of pouf, the curved hem with European vents in the back, and the very cool perforated leather elbow pockets. I think the brown would be most wearable for the office, paired with other browns (obviously), but also perhaps with light blue pants or even black trousers with a white blouse. It’s available at Bloomingdale’s in light brown, but do note that Nordstrom has it in pink, and online boutique SHE has it in yellow.  It’s $650 in all colors.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Warehouse Abstract Tribal Shift Dress

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

Warehouse Abstract Tribal Shift DressThis dress strikes me as a fun, trendy take on the shift dress. Love the boat neckline, the pleat details on the collar, and the abstract print. I’d wear it with a white cardigan or blazer in the summer and spring, and a black one in the other seasons. The print is pretty busy so I’d keep the accessories simple: pearls or a simple gold chain. It was $71.72 at Asos, but is now marked to $57.38 (limited sizes only). Warehouse Abstract Tribal Shift Dress

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Short Sleeve Shirt – Twist-Front

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

The Madison Short Sleeve Shirt – Twist-FrontI’m liking this simple ruffled blouse from New York & Company. I like that the ruffle goes all the way down the front. Unless I’m mistaken, this is a pull-over blouse, note a button-front (at least, I can’t see any buttons on the placket) — but that’s actually a plus because it means gaping isn’t a worry. It’s available in brown, purple, yellow, white, and black (sizes XS-XL), for $29.95 — buy one get one for 50% off. The Madison Short Sleeve Shirt – Twist-Front

dkny surplice knotted wrap dressI am loving this simple dress from DKNY today — nice high neckline, ladylike length, made from natural fibers (wool) — it’s just kind of perfect.  Add to all that the fact that it is on sale and still available in sizes S, M, and L — lovely!  Was $195, now $136.65 at Bloomingdale’s (where the sale has now hit 60% off).  DKNY Surplice Knotted Wrap Dress
