Thursday’s TPS Report: Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress

Adrianna Papell Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

We all know: I’m a sucker for an interesting seam detail. I am also a sucker for a good dark blue/black combo — and a dress with sleeves. And then when you put that dress on sale… well, consider me smitten. The dress was $118, but is now marked down to $70.80 (a lot of sizes still left). Adrianna Papell Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress

Also nice, and also on sale: Adrianna Papell Colorblock Jersey Sheath Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Knit Moto Jacket

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

Ann Taylor Knit Moto JacketI really like the look of this knit moto jacket, on sale at Ann Taylor. The faux leather details look lux, the asymmetrical zip lends a bit of an edge, and in general it looks like a nice step up from a cardigan (or step down from a more structured blazer). It’s available in regular, petite, and tall sizes — was $179, then marked to $150, but with the extra 40% off with today’s sale (no code) it comes down to $89. Ann Taylor Knit Moto Jacket

Here’s a similar plus-size pick.

P.S. Note that Nordstrom has a ton of Jimmy Choo shoes on sale as part of their designer clearance sale.  This previously featured Max Mara dress is down to $270!

Coffee Break: Braided Handle Tote Bag

Tumbled Leather Braided Handle Tote Bag I haven’t seen as interesting a bag as this — for as cheap as this — for a long while, so I had to post.  I love those folds in the leather, the shaped opening, and even the braided handles. It’s a faux-leather (PVC) tote bag with silvertone hardware, and at 13″H x 17″W x 5″D, more than big enough. (Also note: if you’re hunting for a great gift for a vegan friend, this may be your ticket.) The bag was $110, then was marked to $75, but with today’s sale, comes down to $45.

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

New Balance Women's WR00 Minimus Running ShoeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American readers!  I am thankful, as always, for the readers of this site — I’ve learned so much from you guys and, as I hope you can tell, love writing for y’all.  Thank you for the great run we’ve had thus far!  Stay tuned over the next few days for sales — we’ll try to be on top of all the best Gray Thursday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday deals.  Our favorite sale at the MOMENT, though, is this extra 25% off handbags and shoes that Amazon is offering through November 28, as we noted throughout our boot roundup on Monday — there are a lot of lucky sizes, but it’s a great chance to buy a basic like a new sneaker.  This New Balance shoe was $109, but is now marked down to $59-$92 (available in three colors) — with discounts the pictured shoe comes down to $70.  Not bad.  New Balance Women’s WR00 Minimus Running Shoe

Frugal Wednesday’s TPS Report: Office Lady Blazer

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

Office Lady BlazerI just learned about this company, Rose Wholesale, the other day — a friend had liked the page so the ad was showing in my FB feed with some alluring title like “Women’s coats for under $25.” I clicked, and while a lot of the pieces look a bit costume-y, there are some pieces for work that I might give a shot if I was tired of the usual budget offerings. Take, for example, this black and white blazer, which has a very Chanel-esque look about it. Reviews seeem positive, too, and for $15.37 it’s hard to go wrong. It’s available in sizes S-XL in white and black. Office Lady Blazer

For bargains for plus sizes, check out the “curvy young contemporary” section at Red Dress Boutique — I recently saw an episode of Shark Tank featuring the founder and was impressed enough by her story to click through to check out the boutique.  Most of it isn’t my taste, but I though this plum blazer for $46 looked nice…

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater

Neiman Marcus Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

So I’ve been eyeing this festive blazer but pondering how to wear it when it’s SO. DANG. COLD. And the answer, in theory, was always: a silk/cashmere turtleneck. But finding one under $300 turned out to be a bit of a challenge — which is why I’m posting a few of my finds today, because a slim-fitted but warm turtleneck is such a great layering essential. I like the pictured one, at Neiman Marcus (was $280, now $125, available in 10 colors), this Max Studio silk turtleneck (available in 14 colors for $128), and this C by Bloomingdale’s cashmere turtleneck (was $158, now $99, available in 16 colors).
