Thursday’s TPS Report: Falling Stones Tee

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

Falling Stones TeeI don’t know if this is a new thing from DvF — a cotton t-shirt emblazoned with one of her vintage prints — but I really like the idea of it.  Yes, I kind of wish it were silk or even rayon, but I’ll take cotton.  It’s washable, breathable, and will be much easier to take care of than something that needs dry cleaning or air drying. And, while $75 seems steep for a t-shirt, there are a lot of t-shirts in that price range that are far less appropriate to be worn to work.  The shirt is available for preorder from DVF.com, sizes P-L still available.  Falling Stones Tee

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Asymmetrical Gathered T

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

Gap Asymmetrical TI love nothing more than finding a great basic on sale – and judging from the reviews on Gap.com this top is the rare find in that it is both loose and comfortable — but also slimming. Brilliant. The “hushed violet” (pictured) and black are on the deepest sale ($17.99); there’s also a plum for $19.99 and a “twilight navy” for $24.99. The tee was originally $29.50 at Gap.

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Tee T-shirt

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

Michael Stars Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Tee T-shirtBare Necessities is having a great sale, and all clearance items are marked an EXTRA 50% off. We like their selection of basic t-shirts, and it strikes us as one of the few places where you can reliably find a number of different high-end t-shirt brands marked to 65-75% off. The pictured scoop neck tee is from Michael Stars, and comes in black, white, gray, purple, two shades of brown, and two shades of pink. We’d wear it beneath a suit, or in the winter beneath a cashmere or wool sweater (wearing a t-shirt with sleeves helps you get more wears out of the sweater before you have to launder it). It was $46, now marked to $11.49 at Bare Necessities.  Michael Stars Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Tee T-shirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: Sparkle & Fade Pleated Silk Tee

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

Urban Outfitters isn’t in our usual hit list for the TPS report, we’ll admit, but today we are liking this slouchy, stripey silk blouse from Sparkle & Fade.  We’d wear it with a black pencil skirt, a long opera-length necklace, and perhaps a pair of flats with just a bit of a point to the toe — maybe in a color, otherwise just a black or skin-toned shoe.  We like the “hair up” look with the boatnecked neckline, for whatever reason, so we’re also seeing it with a low, slightly messy bun for the workday. The top is $54 at Urban Outfitters (sizes XS-L). Sparkle & Fade Pleated Silk Tee

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Button Detail Boatneck T

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Gap button detail boatneck TThe color is really what drew us to this basic long-sleeved t-shirt — love that blue.  We’d wear it beneath a gray suit, or perhaps with navy pants and a cardigan in a cream color — and we always think pearls go perfectly with boatnecks.  Gap is having an online-only sale on regularly-priced merchandise through 1/24 (code: SPRING20), so it’s 20% off the marked price, which is $22.  Available in XS – XXL, and in talls and petites.  Gap Button detail boatneck T

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Banana Republic’s Short-Sleeve Seamless V-Neck

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.

Banana Republic’s Short-Sleeve Seamless V-NeckGood basics are hard to find — so when they go on sale, it’s even better. Through May 25, Banana Republic is having an online-only Memorial Day sale, marking down lots of simple tees and camisoles, all available in white, black, brown, and navy. Our favorite is this short-sleeve seamless tee, pictured here in “true indigo” — we’d wear it beneath a suit, or with trousers and a blazer, or perhaps a pencil skirt and a cardigan. Was $30, now $20. Women: Short-sleeve seamless v-neck tee – True indigo
