Wednesday’s TPS Report: Sullivan Check Print Blazer

Reiss Sullivan Check Print Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I thought the price here was a mistake — $425 to $141 for a Reiss blazer just seemed like too drastic a reduction. Then I saw the description: black/white — and thought, a-ha, no wonder it’s on sale. So I Googled a bit and found the Reiss page for the Sullivan blazer (I know, it was QUITE a bit of sleuthing), where it turns out that this IS the Sullivan blazer, but the black/blue version is marked to $168, while the black/cream one is marked to $141 (both at Bloomingdale’s and Reiss). So: score. I like the black/blue one better, but the black/white one is also nice. Reiss Sullivan Check Print Blazer

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Sweetheart Neckline Jersey Skater Dress

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

New Look Tall Sweetheart Neckline Jersey Skater DressThere are some crazy sales happening over at ASOS, ladies. Tons of lucky sizes and tons of, well, casual and uber trendy stuff — but there is some serious gold in there. For example: I like this sweetheart skater dress, which I’ve seen much higher versions of, for much more money. Is it a dress I’d wear to a meeting with a VIP? No, probably not. But I’d wear it as a layering piece with tights, possibly with a silky blouse beneath and a shrunken blazer on top. The dress was $24.62, but is now marked to $14.21 (available in both black and fuchsia). New Look Tall Sweetheart Neckline Jersey Skater Dress

Monday’s TPS Report: Striped Cashmere Sweater

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

Lord Taylor Striped Cashmere SweaterThis is my first year hearing of this sale, but readers noted a few weeks ago that L&T historically marks a lot of their cashmere down to $50ish a few days before Christmas. Lo and behold, ladies: I think that day is upon us. It’s not their entire stock of sweaters, but their basic V-necks and more are marked from $160 down to $60.  (The 20% off code GIFT does not work on most of the sweaters I tried, but that’s my $.02.) You get free next day shipping with any $99 order. Happy holidays, ladies! Lord & Taylor Striped Cashmere Sweater

The sale also applies to select plus-size sweaters.

Weekend Open Thread

Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66 | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Friday! My love of the retro sneaker trend continues, and I may just have to pick up these cool Onitsuka Tiger by Asics shoes. I particularly like the black and “shaded spruce” option, but it comes in 10 different colors. The 1,417 positive reviews don’t hurt either. They’re $85 at Zappos. Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66

Psst: 6pm.com has several color options for the Mexico 66 with prices from $35 to $68. Many are also available at Amazon (although the price range there is $26 to $105 and some sizes/colors are very limited).
