Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back

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

Armani Collezioni Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back Love. This. Dress. I’m not sure how I feel about the head-to-toe red, but the fact that I’m on the fence about it says it’s probably worth trying. But the dress — oh, the dress! Love the wide bateau neckline, the keyhole back, and the darts and pleating at the waist are gorgeous — we’ve seen a million dresses like this, yes, but this one does it the best.  It was $1,055, but is now marked to $633, limited sizes at both Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’sArmani Collezioni Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Belted Dolman Sleeve Sheath Dress

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

Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Belted Dolman Sleeve Sheath DressCommenter TCFKAG wrote in to recommend this Suzi Chin dress, noting “People are always looking for sleeved dresses, the price is relatively reasonable and I like the colors available.” Nice! I do like this piece (and the 54 mostly positive reviews). I’m not sure why the model looks so forlorn — the twisted neckline, the three-quarter sleeves, the ladylike length… it’s a great dress! Do note that with the dolman sleeves, it will be hard to throw a blazer on top of it, but I think this dress looks professional enough that you don’t need one. It’s $118, in regular and petites, at Nordstrom. Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Belted Dolman Sleeve Sheath Dress

MARC BY MARC JACOBS Top - Exclusive Evie Silk Long SleeveOooh: I really like this red Marc by Marc Jacobs top. Love the round collar, the three-quarter length sleeves, and the fluid feel.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Contrast Lined Dress

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

Donna Karan New York Contrast Lined DressHappy Monday! I’m digging this simple black dress from Donna Karan New York. As always, I’m particularly fond of the details — the red and white contrast trim at the cuffs and hem. The bones of the dress look great too, especially considering that elbow-length sleeves are hard to find. The dress is $1,295 at Bloomingdale’s. Donna Karan New York Contrast Lined Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Cashmere Coverup

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

Cashmere CoverupA good red cashmere sweater will take you a lot of places — to the office (with trousers), to a dinner party (with jeans).  Truth be told, this is always the kind of thing I wore on a first date — casually sexy and soft to the touch. It was $248, but is now marked to $148.80 at White House | Black Market. Cashmere Coverup
