Coffee Break – Fei Embellished Patent-Leather Slingbacks

 Jason Wu Fei embellished patent-leather slingbacksIt really feels like polka dots are everywhere this season! I love these splurge-worthy studded slingbacks in black and burgundy. The burgundy stripe reminds me of spectator pumps, and I can see these shoes livening up so many outfits. They’re (gulp) $725 at Net-a-Porter. Jason Wu Fei embellished patent-leather slingbacks

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Dot-pattern silk-chiffon shirt

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

Jason Wu Dot-pattern silk-chiffon shirtWe like this playful navy and white blouse from Jason Wu — under a simple black suit (ooh, or a white suit) it would be fabulous.  (Plus, the pockets give you extra coverage if you decide to wear it with nothing below it, as worn on the runway.  (Although for work, we’d probably try it with a dark camisole beneath it.)  It’s $595 at Net-a-Porter.com.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Jacquard Jaden Dress

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

Jacquard Jaden Dress by Jason WuKirna Zabete has their summer sale going on, with prices up to 30% off designer duds like this lovely Jason Wu dress.  We like the ladylike cut — the high bateau neckline, the roomy ballet sleeves, the knee-length A-line skirt — and we love the designer details, like the semi sheer hem and the woven jacquard fabric.  Lovely.  It’s significantly reduced — now $688.50, was $2295.  Alas, lucky sizes only.  Jacquard Jaden Dress
