Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Cotton Knit Curved Waist Dress

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

eShakti Cotton Knit Curved Waist DressI’ve yet to order a dress from eShakti, but this may be my first. I love the curved waist details in there, as well as the multiple colors offered (it’s pictured here in burgundy but also comes in cobalt and green), and has a TON of options for different necklines, different sleeve lengths and, yes, different hem lengths. It was $60, but is now marked to $42. Note that, like all other eShakti dresses, you can customize your bust, waist, and hip measurements; sizes go from XS-6X. Nice. Happy Friday! eShakti Cotton Knit Curved Waist Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Classic Blazer

Old Navy Classic Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’ve featured a few striped blazers over the years, and I really like this one — the gray on black, the darts, the cool way the pattern on the collar plays with the pattern on the blazer… and I love that it’s machine washable. The blazer is available in regular, tall, and petite sizes XS-XXL (also in solid black and gray) and is on sale for $32 (was $40) at Old Navy. Old Navy Classic Blazer

Here’s a similar plus-size blazer that’s also machine washable.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Bryant Dress

Emploi New York Bryant Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I only just heard about the brand Emploi New York (although apparently not only have they been around for years, but they often hit Rue La La) and really like the look of their entire collection. It’s founded on the idea that a businesswoman needs a dress that “would not break her bank, would feel great against her skin, and would give her a shot at the corner office.” Nice. The pictured dress is available in sizes XS-L for $129 at Emploi New York. Emploi New York Bryant Dress

Here’s a plus-size alternative.

Coffee Break: Print Coated Canvas Large Shopper

Lands' End Print Coated Canvas Large Shopper | CorporetteCoated canvas is always a nice option — it’s thick, durable, and easy to clean. This large canvas shopper at Lands’ End (which, they proudly note, was seen on Vogue.com) looks like a great tote bag for schlepping all your stuff — I like the option to personalize it in a fun color, also. The bag is super affordable — $68 marked down to $55 — and available in four color options. Nice. Lands’ End Women’s Print Coated Canvas Large Shopper

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: I Love Your Dress

ModCloth I Love Your Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This dress is slightly on the casual side, but: 412 positive reviews!! It was sold out a few weeks ago so I put it on my list to check back, and it’s currently in stock in most sizes (S-3X). It’s fun to look through the reader reviews and see women of all shapes and sizes in their dresses — it looks to be pretty flattering on everyone. While you’re at ModCloth, do check out some of their Halloween stuff (I like this sweater with hands), their highly rated Airport Greeting Cardigan, their large selection of tights (yes, including fleece tights), and what looks like a great selection of work dresses (many up to size 3X). The dress is $49.99 at ModCloth (also available in olive and black). ModCloth I Love Your Dress

Coffee Break: Taylor Laptop Bag

LeSportsac Taylor Laptop Bag | CorporetteI really like the few LeSportsac bags that I have — and if I were looking for a laptop bag, I would check this one out. I like the striped version, pictured, as well as the matte black bag — they do have a few other versions. The bag is $112 at Zappos. (Note that if you prefer more of a briefcase style for your laptop bag, the brand has several highly rated versions for 13″ and 15″ laptops.) LeSportsac Taylor Laptop Bag
