Coffee Break – Semi Fitted Pants

C9 by Champion® Women's Semi Fitted Pants w/Extended Sizes - BlackTarget is having a pretty great deal today — buy one item Men’s, Women’s and Kids’ apparel, accessories and shoes and get 50% off an additional item from one of these categories — plus, there’s always free shipping when you spend $50. This strikes me as a great time to stock up on exercise duds from C9 by Champion, ASSETS by Sara Blakely undergarments, and all of those Merona and Mossimo dresses I feature so frequently for Friday’s TPS reports — even Dana Kellin for Target. Happy shopping, ladies! (Oh: and the pants are $19.99.) C9 by Champion® Women’s Semi Fitted Pants w/Extended Sizes – Black

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Pleated Zip Back Dress

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

Reader H emailed to suggest this dress, noting “This link shows it in the ‘Hot Orange’ color, which is very on-trend right now. It is made out of jersey and could be worn for a night or day event, but it’s definitely appropriate for work. I’m planning on wearing it (in black, with a jacket) to an event at the White House this week and to a rehearsal dinner next month! I’ve got some major hips and have trouble wearing traditional sheath dresses, but this one is so flattering. I’m usually a size 14, and I bought an extra-large.” It’s a really cute dress, and I can see it easily being a great summer basic. While I’m not sure I would wear a $25 dress to a White House event, a simple dress can be dressed up in so many ways that I can easily see it working — add some quality jewelry and a black blazer and you’ve got a winning high-low mixture. The dress is available in black, teal, orange, and grey for $24.99 at Target. Mossimo® Women’s Pleated Zip Back Dress – Hot Orange

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Ponte Dolman Sleeve Dress

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

Mossimo Ponte Dolman Sleeve DressI had a hard time picking which of the 6 colors of this dress to feature. Ultimately, I went with this blue, named for a spot in the Bahamas. Love the wide sleeves, the high neckline, and the pockets — and for $18.75 (down from $24.99) it’s a great price. I like that reviewers call out the heavy weight of the fabric and the figure flattering features. It’s available in Bimini blue, cactus green, Chinese red, pink, lasting violet, and black, all at Target. Mossimo® Women’s Ponte Dolman Sleeve Dress
