Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Lantern Sleeve Top

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

Ann Taylor is having one of their 50% sitewide sales, and they have a lot of nice blouses with interesting sleeves right now. I like this lantern-sleeve blouse, which comes in black, white, and chambray. There’s a very similar option with ruched sleeves that’s really nice as well. Either one will be great when you can finally stop huddling under as many cardigans and wraps as you can find, and actually just wear a blouse around the office. I think these are good options to wear with pants or pencil skirts — they’re very easy to throw on and have a nice work outfit. The sizes are 00–18 and you can get 50% off $79.50 with code GETWARM. Lantern Sleeve Top

Two plus-size options are at Macy’s and Eloquii.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Midi Dress with Elastic Waist Detail

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

Happy Thursday! This midi dress with an inset elastic waist has a stylish look to it — and I love that deep teal color and its perfect midi length. The dress also comes in regular and tall sizes, but the teal color is only in plus sizes 12–24. Nice. Also really nice: It’s only $60 at ASOS and is machine washable.  ASOS CURVE Midi Dress with Elastic Waist Detail

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Madison Stretch Sheath Dress

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

This Leota dress is really lovely. Polka dots can be a little too twee for some people, but I think this particular example looks great. I like the self-tie at the waist, too. At $128 — and hand washable — this looks like a good option for work. It only has a few reviews so far, but they’re very positive. It’s available at Nordstrom, and Leota.com has the plus-size version. Madison Stretch Sheath Dress

Update: This dress has now sold out at Nordstrom, but Bloomingdale’s has it in navy.

Coffee Break: Scheila Pumps

nine west scheila pumpsBlock heels often get a bad rap as being grandma heels, and I’ll be honest: I can see it a lot of the time! These heels look like they walk the perfect line between being sleek and yet also on trend, though — and they come in SO many different color options if you like the shape you’re almost certain to find a color you like as well. Oh, and bonus: they’re affordable. They’re $20-$89 in a zillion different colors, prints and sizes at various sites, including Amazon, Lord & Taylor, Nine West, Zappos, DSW, Nordstrom, and more.

Coffee Break: Closet Organizer and Shirt Folder

If you’re organizing your closet, either as a part of New Year’s resolution or perhaps because you’ve got the day off today, this closet organizer and shirt folder came to my attention a while ago. It looks really interesting if you’re the kind of person who really, really wants to have organized shirts. (Here’s how it works.) It’s Amazon’s bestseller in its “Shelf Liners & Dividers” category, and it’s $21.99 EZSTAX Closet Organizer and Shirt Folder

Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

There are two trends going on with this Vince Camuto top, and I like them both here. The first trend is the corset look — if you look up “corset” on Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s or Amazon, etc., you will find a zillion things that are corset-inspired. Some of them are good, some of them are bad, and some are just sort of weird. I really like this blouse, though, because it looks cool and flattering but not overly boudoir. It also has a sort of baby crop where you can just see a hint of skin. (That’s why it’s a weekend pick — I would not advise showing even a little skin at work. On the other hand, know your office.) The top is $99 at Nordstrom, comes in XXS–XL sizes, and is machine washable. Note that Theory has a similar baby crop. Lace-Up Tie Front Blouse

A plus-size option is at Eloquii.

Update: Comments are fixed, sorry about that. Also, note that the Kindle Deal of the Day is lots of good stuff selected by The Skimm: Gone Girl, Eligible, The Secret History, and more.
