Deal Alert: Big Presidents’ Day Sales at Uniqlo!

We did our major roundup of Presidents’ Day sales (with shoutouts to the Nordstrom winter sale and other noteworthy sales like Bergdorf’s, Neiman Marcus, and Last Call), but the deals at Uniqlo are too good not to note.  Only lucky colors are available, in Uniqlo’s usual size range (they generally run small), but some crazy deals to share:

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Shoulder Tuck Top

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

I think I prefer this Halogen top to the tie-neck style from yesterday — I really like the tuck detail at the shoulder, and the notched V-neck would be gorgeous under a blazer. The blouse is also machine wash cold, tumble dry low. Nordstrom has a couple of colors/patterns on sale for $35; the patterns at full price are $59. The available sizes are regular XS-XXL and petite XXS-XL. Shoulder Tuck Top

Here’s a plus-size option, also at Nordstrom.

UPDATE: The Nordstrom Winter Sale has officially started! Stay tuned later today for an update with some of my top picks in the sale.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Tie Neck Sleeveless Blouse

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

This very highly rated georgette blouse has 20 reviews and almost 5 stars. I tend to go back and forth on tie neck blouses, but this one, with its wavy pattern and green color, is kind of cute (here are the other colorways), and I like that it comes in regular and petite sizes up to XXL (which is a size 18). It’s machine washable and line dry, and whether you end up tucking it in or leaving it out, I think it would look great. It’s $59 at Nordstrom. Tie Neck Sleeveless Blouse

Two plus-size examples are here and here.

Update: Note that some colorways are marked down to $41 in the big winter sale at Nordstrom.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: The Fey Top

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

We’re picturing this MM.LaFleur top in French blue, but it also comes in boysenberry. I think it just looks like a gorgeous, basic wear-to-work (and out) kind of piece — it’s actually the sleeved version of an older style, the Blixen Top. It has a bunch of flattering tucks and folds, and it pairs with some of MM.LaFleur’s skirts, if you like the dress look. Customers have mentioned that it’s bust-friendly and maternity-friendly, and you should also note that it’s hand washable (and you can iron it on low) but labeled “dry clean preferred.” The top comes in sizes XS-XL for $145. The Fey Top

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size alternative.

Coffee Break: Whitney Pump

Block pumps are everywhere right now — every single brand has them — and for some reason I was surprised to see that Naturalizer does too. I don’t know why; obviously they have a reasonable height and a nice founded toe line so there’s no reason they shouldn’t be comfortable. This one comes in this lovely blue leather that we’re featuring but also in black and dove gray. Naturalizer offers a generous size range of 4-12 in narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide sizes, so if you’re hard to fit this is a great brand to keep on your radar. Whitney Pump

Coffee Break: Bioelements Travel Kits

I just bought this myself — and what’s more, I was replacing empties, which I never happen to do. I got one of these little kits maybe a year or two ago, and I finally ran out of Sleepwear (described as an “overnight age activist creme for dry to combination skin”). Instead of buying the big size, I decided to get the Travel Light Kit, because for $49 it’s really affordable. If you have dry skin in the winter, I really recommend Sleepwear, and I also like two Bioelements eye products, the Multi-Task Eye Creme and Sleepwear for Eyes. You get free samples as well, so it’s a really good deal in my opinion. We have an upcoming post on the best places to get travel kits like this, so if you want to try things or need travel sizes, you can load up. (We’re researching that now — so, readers, please tell us your favorite places to get travel kits and small sizes of products you really like.) These are available at Amazon as well as at Bioelements for $20-$65. Bioelements Travel Kits
