Wednesday’s TPS Report: Belted V Neck Dress

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

DKNY Belted V Neck DressBloomingdale’s has a ton of great stuff on sale, but it’s lucky size time. For example: I’m in love with this black belted V-neck dress, even though I know there would probably be camisoles involved in wearing it to work. The draping, the faux leather obi belt, the front pleat — love it all. And get this: it was $345, but is now marked to $124 (size L only, alas). DKNY Belted V Neck Dress

Sponsored Post: A Curated Pantyhose Collection, from Hoseanna

Corporate-RookieIt’s easy to find a cheap pair of pantyhose on the fly, for those situations where it’s an hour before the big meeting and you realize you’ve got a run.  But quality hosiery usually requires a trip to a department store, which just may not be in the cards when you’re slammed with work — part of the reason I started this blog was because I was always working when stores were open!  Hoseanna, a new site, is launching today, and it aims to help working women everywhere get the pantyhose, nylons, and tights you need, on your schedule.  Because you can make a one-time purchase or sign up for a subscription (every month, every two months or every three months), you can even put pantyhose on “autopilot” — it’ll show up when you need it, and you can cross it off your already massive to-do list.  Their curated collection includes some brands that are new to me, including b.ella, Foot Traffic, Pretty Polly, and Boottights, as well as brands that everyone would be familiar with, such as Hue, DKNY, and Silk Reflections.  Also, note that the first 250 women to register on the site will receive 25% off all purchases throughout the year + 1 month free shipping. And, through a fun giveaway going on now, 4 people can win a full year-long subscription to Hoseanna and a style makeover (details below!)

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Hoseanna’s founders, Tracey and Katrina.  I loved both women (they’ve been friends for years and have walked in our shoes, ladies — both of them had successful corporate careers before they went into business together!) but I also loved the idea behind the site:  that while yes, sometimes women like to browse, a lot of times you just want CONVENIENCE when you’re shopping.  Especially for busy, working women, you don’t want to have to spend your one free hour of the week to run to the department store to pick up a few new pair of hose.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: DKNY Cap-Sleeve Scoopneck Dress

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

DKNY Cap-Sleeve Scoopneck DressI’ve been ogling this beautiful scoopneck dress for a few weeks now — I love the pleat details at the shoulders and gathering at the waist, especially when paired with the scoopneck.  The red is a classic, and the whole dress has a timeless elegance.  It’s $245 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Coffee Break – DKNY Burnished Pleated Flower Large Hobo

DKNY Burnished Pleated Flower Large HoboI love the look of this burnished leather hobo from DKNY, available in burgundy (pictured, available at Zappos for $206.50), gray (also available at Zappos, for $221.25), green (available at Endless for $228.27 and Amazon for $202) and dark blue (available at Amazon for $177.) I like the pleats on the bag, the general size, the removable chain detailing as well as the “rosette charm.” Looks like a nice size in general, too. Note that most colors (except the gray) seem to be on the brink of selling out, so you may want to move quickly if you love it…

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

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Knee Length Skirt

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

DKNY Knee Length SkirtFabulous skirt from DKNY — it’s a slight A-line with leather trim on the hip pockets and waist. I also love that ShopBop has styled it with black tights and shoes — what a great way to demonstrate navy and black together. For some reason, I’m seeing this with a crisp white shirt, perhaps tucked in and belted with a wide belt. The skirt is $175 at ShopBop.com. DKNY Knee Length Skirt
