Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Menswear’ Full Leg Trousers

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

'Menswear' Full Leg TrousersA great trouser doesn’t need much by way of exposition, but: hello, these look great, and Nordstrom has them in 7 colors, which says a lot about their confidence level. I like the aubergine (pictured), as an interesting not-quite-neutral color. I’d wear it with shades of gray or blue, or I might try colorblocking with a dark red sweater on top. They’re $198 at Nordstrom (sizes 0 to 18). Lafayette 148 New York ‘Menswear’ Full Leg Trousers

Thursday’s TPS Report: Pleated-Neck Tee

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

Pleated-Neck TeeLast Call by Neiman Marcus seems to have a number of cute basics from Lafayette 148 New York on sale today, including this lovely green shirt. Yes, $75 is pricey for a t-shirt (on sale), but I have a feeling this is the kind of shirt you’ll have in your closet for at least 5 years. I like the pleat details at the neck, the boldness of the colors, and the formfitting jersey. I’d go preppy with it and wear it with a navy pencil skirt and, perhaps, gold accessories — or perhaps a bit wild with it and pair it with black trousers and a purple waterfall cardigan. It was $168, now on sale for $75. Pleated-Neck Tee

Wednesday’s TPS Report: ‘Menswear’ Full Leg Trousers

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

Lafayette 148 New York ‘Menswear’ Full Leg TrousersSometimes all you want is a simple pair of pants, and today I’m liking these menswear inspired pants from Lafayette 148 New York. I like the lack of cuffs and the lack of front pockets, as well as the multitude of colors and sizes (regulars, petites) available. They’re unhemmed, but Nordstrom offers free hemming at no charge. Limited sizes and colors (such as granite) are on sale for $118; the rest are full price at $198. Lafayette 148 New York ‘Menswear’ Full Leg Trousers

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Bella Floral-Print Blouse

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

Lafayette 148 New York Bella Floral-Print BlouseI am not normally a fan of banded bottoms (or, truth be told, smocking), but this cotton/silk blouse has a lot going for it:  I love the pattern, it’s from a great brand (Lafayette 148 New York) and it’s part of a hot sale: today only you can take an extra 30% off the entire site, Last Call by Neiman Marcus. Like I said: love the colors, the mixture of blues, and the playful pattern. I also like a more bloused effect, which can be helpful for those of us who don’t have washboard abs (and want to give the Spanx a day off). It was $268, now $135 — take an extra 30% off today only.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Crescent-Print Linen Paper Bag Skirt

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

Lafayette 148 New York Crescent-Print Linen Paper Bag SkirticonBloomingdale’s is having some good sales right now, including this great skirt from Lafayette 148 New York. Two points we like about the print: it will conceal any wrinkles in the linen, yet it’s kept from being *too* busy by being black and white. We also love the front slash pockets. Was $248, now $148 at Bloomingdale’s.  Lafayette 148 New York Crescent-Print Linen Paper Bag Skirt

P.S. Incidentally, check out the shoe sales at Bloomingdale’s — take up to $150 off if you spend $500+ (or $50 off if you spend $200).
