Coffee Break – Soho Ostrich-Embossed Hobo Bag

Furla Soho Ostrich-Embossed Hobo Bag, Onyx Even though I love my collection of colorful purses, a good black hobo is something even I consider a basic. I have two Furla bags that I love, and so this black ostrich-embossed hobo caught my eye — it’s simple but a bit interesting, too. It was $448, but is now marked to $315 at Last Call by Neiman Marcus — and today only, you can take an extra 30% off the entire site, bringing the price to around $220. Hooray!

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

(Psst: Speaking of sales, have I mentioned the new Corporette Bargains page?)

Coffee Break – Cashmere Wrap

Amicale Cashmere WrapLast Call has some great deals on cashmere wraps right now. I’ve written longer posts about different ways to use a cashmere wrap in an office, but briefly, it’s one of the best ways to quickly add a layer of warmth if you’re in a suit (just throw it around your shoulders and go!) and it can be great for days when you’re wearing a skirt and your legs are freezing (just wrap it around your legs, or drape it over them blanket-style). This particular cashmere wrap was $400, then marked to $200 — and you can take an extra 40% off, bringing it down to $120. This deep red is gorgeous, but do note: there are a variety of colors available. Amicale Cashmere Wrap

Thursday’s TPS Report: Chevron Crewneck Sweater

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

Pink Tartan Chevron Crewneck Sweater Last Call by Neiman Marcus is having a pretty great sale right now: extra 10% on top of 30% off entire purchase (on top of their “regular” sales prices). There’s a ton of great stuff, some in lucky sizes — for today I’m liking this olive crewneck sweater by Pink Tartan. I like the three-quarter length sleeves, the wide crew neckline, and the ribbed hem — it looks like a great basic sweater. I’d wear it with navy trousers and, perhaps, purple pumps. It was $225, but is currently marked to $119 — after the 30% + 10% it comes down to $75ish. Pink Tartan Chevron Crewneck Sweater

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Sleeved Colorblock Dress

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

Sleeved Colorblock DressHappy Tuesday! I think this is a really pretty, classy dress from Muse — and it looks comfortable, too. I particularly like the gathered ruching at the waist (flattering!), and call me crazy, but I think the polyester/spandex fabric has a great drape to it.  It was $184, but is now $119.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Dip-Dye Cashmere-Blend Cardigan

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

Dip-Dye Cashmere-Blend CardiganGreat sale on this cashmere/silk blend long cardigan from Piazza Sempione!  Love the strawberry color, the skinny arms but voluminous body, and the fact that you can wear it as a layer in a cold office, as a jacket on a warmish spring day, or belted as part of your outfit proper.  It was $750 — now marked to $262 at Last Call by Neiman Marcus (sizes S, L, and XL still available).
