Coffee Break: Soutache Wide Stretch Belt

Soutache Wide Stretch BeltIf you’re a fan of White House | Black Market, do note that they’ve got one of their big sales going on right now — including an additional 50% off many sale prices on accessories. This wide belt was $80, then was marked to $29 — with code 96266 it comes down to $15. Nice! These kinds of belts can be great to wear on top of sheath dresses or cardigans, and at this price it’s hard to go wrong. Soutache Wide Stretch Belt

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ponte I Line 3/4 Sleeve Dress

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

where CAN you find good work dresses under $50?Here’s a question for you: can a good dress for work be found for under $50? This long-sleeved ponte dress at Uniqlo, for example, is totally uninspiring on the model, but in the store I would easily pick this up to try it on — but if the fit is right (or can be right, with tailoring) then it’d be great because the dress is only $39.90. It’s available in sizes S-XL in green, black, and gray. Ponte I Line 3/4 Sleeve Dress

Old Navy has a very similar option in regular (up to XXL), tall, and petite sizes.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Long-Sleeve Sheath Dress

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

Readers were expressing some dismay at J.Crew’s latest offerings — even worrying about possible store closures, as well as whether they’re ending their suiting line — and while I have no inside scoop, I will add another complaint: their website is ALWAYS weird for me, in Chrome at least, and I have to scroll for miles to find the description and available sizes.  In any event: while I definitely agree that some of J.Crew’s current pieces put them solidly on the “why, why, WHY” train that so many workwear brands seem to be on — I do like this dress. (Ooh, and this one.) The bright, happy purple is unusual (it’s also available in a more sedate green as well as a black), and there’s something very mod about the whole design.  I’d wear it either with a long pendant necklace or a brooch — or, if I had a longer neck, a long scarf wrapped once around my neck like a choker and otherwise hanging long. (Or, hmmn, the French girl scarf look — long scarf wrapped repeatedly around your neck — would also work.) Scarves and brooches are matter of personal style more than trend, though; if it’s not your style I’d stick with a long pendant. The dress is $98, available in XXS-XXL in regular, petite, and tall sizes. Long-Sleeve Sheath Dress

Coffee Break: Cherry Cosmo Loose Leaf Organic Herbal Tea

We had a pretty substantial discussion a year ago about our favorite teas, and I will say that if you’re trying to cut back on or entirely cut out alcohol, drinking tea is a great way to do it. Personally, I’m a fan of anything rose hip or rooibos, but if you’re looking for specific suggestions, this Cherry Cosmo is delightful. Note that this is loose leaf tea, not teabags — I bought a colorful tea infuser set off Amazon, but you can also get a traditional tea ball. If you’re looking to do a Dry January this year, we’d love to hear what you’re drinking instead… This Cherry Cosmo tea is $15, at Amazon. Tea Forte Herbal Retreat Cherry Cosmo Loose Leaf Organic Herbal Tea
