Wednesday’s TPS Report: Keyhole Detail Jersey Sheath Dress

Vince Camuto Keyhole Detail Jersey Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Oooh: great sheath dress from Vince Camuto. I like the high and work-appropriate keyhole, the slightly loose shape (but not as loose as a shift), the sleeves, and the fact that it’s machine washable. It’s available in five colors, for petite and regular sizes XS-XL, for $99. Vince Camuto Keyhole Detail Jersey Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size alternative.

Pssst: The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale begins today with deals on denim, Stuart Weitzman, Hugo Boss, and much more. Stay tuned for a more thorough roundup a bit later this morning.

Coffee Break: Gold Hoop Earrings

Silver Cedar Jewelry Gold Hoop Earrings | CorporetteThese hammered gold hoops — handmade in Canada — look lovely. I like the tiny size, and the fact that you can get rose gold, white gold, or nickel-free 14K palladium white gold for the same price. They’re $75 at Etsy. Silver Cedar Jewelry Gold Hoop Earrings

Coffee Break: Reversible Vegan Leather Tote & Wristlet

Street Level Reversible Vegan Leather Tote & Wristlet | CorporetteThe reversible tote seems to be all the rage right now, and this Nordstrom bag has (amazing!) 290 positive reviews. It’s vegan leather, comes with a wristlet, and is available in five colors — all for a mere $48. Not bad. The same brand has a number of other nice pieces, such as this colorblock tote or this on-trend bucket bag, all for around the same price point. Street Level Reversible Vegan Leather Tote & Wristlet

Weekend Open Thread

Asics Gel KayanoSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I am in dire need of new running (fine, jogging) (fine, mostly walking, as my hip flexor still seems to be injured) shoes.  Where do you guys go to research which ones are best — or do you just buy new versions of shoes you’ve had in the past?  I’ve always used the Runner’s World Shoe Finder in the past, but I’m curious to hear what you guys have found.  (I’ve also just gone to a sporting goods store and tried them on — one store even had a small track so you could test them out on a short run! — but even if I do that I like to do my research before I go.) That SAID: I totally want these fun emerald shoes from ASICS– so pretty! They’re $159 at Nordstrom. ASICS ‘GEL Kayano 21’ Running Shoe

Note that Zappos has them in a dark plum that I also like (I always feel like an all-black or all-white athletic shoe is a bit dorky — what do you guys think?), and Amazon has the older iteration of the same shoe on sale for $79 and up.

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Plaxico Blazer

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

DvF Plaxico BlazerThis morning I thought I’d take a look to see what blazers I could find under $50 — and I must say, I’m impressed with what The Real Real has in stock right now. Take this eggplant DvF blazer, which I am featuring explicitly so you can compare it with our original workwear suggestion about it a few years ago — it was originally $445, eventually went on sale for $250, but now can be yours in good shape for $50 if you’re a lucky size 6. (The Real Real is a consignment shop, so everything is one of a kind, lucky sizes.) DvF Plaxico Blazer

Here are a few more blazers at the Real Real: black, purple, and red. Use code SUNSHINE to get 20% off through 5/18.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Reagan Washed-Silk Top

Equipment Reagan Washed-SIlk Top | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

There are a ton of Equipment washed silk blouses at The Outnet right now.  There are so many to like, but this bright pink shell makes me happy and would, I think, look great with pretty much any color except purple.  (It’s also available in a version with long sleeves.) The pictured top is $76 (was $168), and is available in sizes XS-L. Equipment Reagan Washed-Silk Top

Here are two plussize options.
