Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Evie Silk Long Sleeve Top

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

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. I always feel like these flowy, meant-to-be-untucked blouses work best with straight or cigarette pants — what are your thoughts, readers? This silk blouse is $248 at Bloomingdale’s.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Silk Bookmark Blouse

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week, we welcome guest poster Becki Singer of Shopping’s My Cardio.

Silk Bookmark BlouseI hope my darling hostess won’t hate me for it, but I went the tiniest bit over budget on this pick. Forgive me? Absolutely every closet needs a perfect silk blouse – polyester substitutes don’t come close to the fit, drape and flow of the real thing. This version from Madewell is one of the most affordable I’ve found at $110, and it comes in all of those rich jewel tones you’ll be craving when the weather turns cool. Perfect under a suit during the week, but try layering it under a trim-fitting vest in lieu of a blazer, or beneath a chunky knit sweater paired with a pencil skirt. This is also a gorgeous weekend look with denim. In a perfect world, I’d buy one of each and be set for the season. Silk Bookmark Blouse

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Embellished Silk-Georgette Blouse

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week’s guest posts are from one of my best friends since college, who we’ll call Auntie M – read more about her below. Welcome to Corporette, Auntie M! – Kat

Matthew Williamson Embellished Silk-Georgette BlouseOooh, I am just loving this pretty — oh, so pretty! — blouse from Matthew Williamson. I generally love beading, and I think the beaded shoulders here add a beautiful weight to this blouse, both literally and figuratively. The beading, along with the buttons on the sleeves, keep the shirt from becoming too flowy. I like the neutral color palette as well, which keeps the design from becoming overwhelming. First, I would absolutely ignore the styling suggestions on this website — no gold-sequined high-waisted shorts for me, thank you! Instead, I would pair it with high-waisted, wide-leg black wool trousers and classic black slim-heel pumps or black patent leather flats. I may also pair it with navy pants or skirt, and/or purple shoes, but I would really want the blouse to be the standout for the day so I would choose other non-distracting accessories to wear. Finally, to be safe and ensure full-coverage, I would also wear a nude-for-me camisole underneath, just in case the blouse magically becomes see-through in natural light.

Guest blogger Auntie M is an attorney who left litigation to work in her family’s legal services business. Sometimes she misses the world of litigation but her nostalgia fades pretty quickly when she is choosing between wearing her peep-toe shoes, capri pants, or skirt-sans-pantyhose in the morning. She believes that one’s handbags should never match one’s shoes (too matchy), that button-down shirts are quite possibly the work of the Devil, and that burgundy/wine is the best neutral color out there today.  She is currently on the hunt for the perfect pair of T-strap pumps.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Kimian Pleated Silk Dress

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

Kimian Pleated Silk DressHaaaapy Monday! I’m loving this silk crepe dress from Diane von Furstenberg. I like the splitneck (which can be worn open, like a V, or closed, like a keyhole), and the knee length, loose skirt (which can be worn belted or not). The tiered pleats on the bodice seem interesting yet timeless. It comes in light mauve (pictured) and chili, and sells for $425 at Saks, Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Net-a-Porter.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Jersey Ruched Chiffon Shoulder T-Shirt

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

linQ black jersey ruched chiffon shoulder t-shirtI love the look of this simple tee from linQ — it’s 100% silk, and the chiffon ruching on the shoulders adds interest without overwhelming your outfit.  I also like the slight curve to the v-neck.  Lovely!  It was $88, but is now marked to $53 at Bluefly.  (And alas, the gray just sold out, but the black is still available in XS-L…) linQ black jersey ruched chiffon shoulder t-shirt
