Wednesday’s TPS Report: New Jeanne Jersey Wrap Dress

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

New Jeanne Jersey Wrap DressI’ve been doing this blog a long time now (almost 7 years!) so I can say this with some authority: Saks Off Fifth has some of the lowest prices I’ve seen on DvF dresses. There’s a good selection of prints and solids for her wrap dresses (Jeanne and Julian), most at $137, down from $398. I may remember seeing the dress in years past as low as $125, but that is rare — so if you like it, consider pulling the trigger today. Full disclosure: the wrap dress, while iconic, may not work for everyone — personally I’m not a fan of it and get a lot more wear out of dresses like the Bevin, Jori, or the April (now as low as $119), but that’s me. The pictured dress is available in sizes 0-12 for $137. New Jeanne Jersey Wrap Dress

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Ibiza Bis Concealed Sweater

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

Diane von Furstenberg Ibiza Bis Concealed SweaterThis sweater’s kind of crazy, and I love that — but it’s just a brushed wood grain pattern, and it’s just a rayon/nylon cardigan in a classic shape. It’s $245 at ShopBop. Diane von Furstenberg Ibiza Bis Concealed Sweater

Thursday’s TPS Report: Falling Stones Tee

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

Falling Stones TeeI don’t know if this is a new thing from DvF — a cotton t-shirt emblazoned with one of her vintage prints — but I really like the idea of it.  Yes, I kind of wish it were silk or even rayon, but I’ll take cotton.  It’s washable, breathable, and will be much easier to take care of than something that needs dry cleaning or air drying. And, while $75 seems steep for a t-shirt, there are a lot of t-shirts in that price range that are far less appropriate to be worn to work.  The shirt is available for preorder from DVF.com, sizes P-L still available.  Falling Stones Tee

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: New Julian Two Dress

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

DIANE von FURSTENBERG Dress - New Julian TwoI still don’t own a classic DvF wrap dress — in part because I’ve been waiting for a great print that I could say, WOW, I love that. And, after years of waiting, I think I’ve finally found it! I love this abstract “cable squares” print. It kind of reminds me of a map, actually, especially with the occasional little pink squares. Love. It’s $365 at Bloomingdale’s (but a number of other stores have it as well, including Neiman Marcus). DIANE von FURSTENBERG Dress – New Julian Two

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Plaxico Jacket

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

Diane von Furstenberg Plaxico Jacket Ooh: I like this DvF twill jacket. Of course, of course: I love the purple. But I like the idea of a darker, but lighter weight jacket, for in-between weather like we’ve been having here in NYC the past few days. I’d wear it with complimentary colors, probably — a light blue button-front blouse, a mint green shell, an emerald or cobalt sweater — or with other purples. It was $465, but is now marked to $249 at Last Call. Diane von Furstenberg Plaxico Jacket

Suit of the Week: DVF

Diane von Furstenberg Meyer Tuxedo BlazerFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

If you’re in the market for a lady tuxedo this season, my vote goes to this chic one from Diane von Furstenberg. Those cool lapels (moire) and almost a boyish cut to it — it’s very, very cool. I think the jacket would look nice on top of a sheath dress as well as worn with the pants. The jacket (Diane von Furstenberg Meyer Tuxedo Blazer) is $465, and the pants (Diane von Furstenberg Tailor Tuxedo Pants) are $345.
