Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Cable-Knit Wrap Vest

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

Old Navy Womens Cable-Knit Wrap VestsOK: This wrap vest from Old Navy is a bit outside our comfort zone, but imagine this for a casual workday outfit:  Pencil skirt, knee-high boots.  The vest, worn with a  simple long-sleeved crew neck beneath it, a statement necklace, and perhaps one simple bangle worn on top of the sleeve of the crewneck.  We think it would particularly be a great way to play with tone-on-tone dressing — we like this greenish “twilight,” but they also have a lovely camel, charcoal, and a “black marl.”  The vest is $34.50 at Old Navy.

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Ruffle-Trim Open-Front Cardigans

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

Ruffle-Trim Open-Front CardigansWe’ve liked a lot of the ruffle cardigans we’ve seen this season, but have been flummoxed by the asymmetrical or uneven ruffle effect we’ve seen on a lot of them — some only have details on one side of the neck, others on one shoulder, etc.  We like this Old Navy open-front cardigan for the evenly spaced ruffles — and we love the navy, pictured.  It’s $29, only at OldNavy.com (which is having pretty good sales anyway), and is available in navy, black, white, a taupey gray, peach, and a coral pink, in limited sizes (generally M-XXL).  Old Navy Womens Ruffle-Trim Open-Front Cardigans

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Ruched Cowl-Neck Tops

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

Old Navy Womens Ruched Cowl-Neck TopsOld Navy is having a great sale on “fundamentals” right now, and it seems like everything’s marked down just a wee bit more. We like this ruched cowl neck top — it seems like a great layering piece beneath a cardigan or jacket, or on top of a camisole in another color.  We’d wear it with a gray suit,  perhaps with a yellow camisole or tank  intentionally peeking out.  Was $16.50, now $10 at Old Navy (available in “Goodnight Nora,” pictured, as well as green, hot pink, gray, white, and black).   Old Navy Womens Ruched Cowl-Neck Tops

Bargain Wednesday’s TPS Report: Old Navy’s Satin-Trim Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Women: Women's Satin-Trim Cardigans - Bougainvillea PinkHappy Thanksgiving, everyone! (More importantly, happy long weekend). For today’s TPS, we were actually torn between two items — this lovely sweater and this off-season but simple shift dress.  We ultimately decided that the sweater is what we really like — particularly for right now.  We like the double satin edging, the bright pop of color, and the long length — perfect for adding a belt or wearing open over a shift dress.  It’s $29.50 at Old Navy, available in 6 colors and sizes XS through XXL in regular petites, and talls.  Women: Women’s Satin-Trim Cardigans – Bougainvillea Pink

Women: Women's Softest Cable-Knit Cardigans - Bougainvillea PinkReader A wrote to us, raving about the quality of this season’s cardigans at Old Navy — she noted that there are many “normal, pretty things this season . . . some great classic pieces available, and many of them (particularly the cardigans) seemed well made.” She actually called out this sweater, but after checking Old Navy.com we had to draw your eyes to this lovely purple sweater — it’s a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise drab wardrobe.  We’d wear it with gray trousers and perhaps a white bodysuit blouse beneath it, and maybe add a black and yellow accent by way of an accessory — a brooch, a scarf, a necklace.  Lovely.  The cardigan is available in 8 colors, regular and tall, sizes XS to XXL, and it’s on sale — was $29.50, now $15.

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

Old Navy’s Open-Front CardigansPricewise, it’s hard to go wrong with this feminine cardigan: it’s practically meant to be that sweater you keep in your office in case the A/C is too cold. The sweater comes in a ton of basic colors — some marked as low as $8, others full price at $19 — and we love the soft Pima and Modal blend, as well as the soft draped shoulders. Note that it comes in both tall and petite sizes, as well as. This color — Cabot Cove — is on sale for $8.00 at Old Navy.com. Women: Women’s Open-Front Cardigans – Cabot Cove
