Flannel sheets are not sexy at all, but if you’re looking for crazy-soft, thick, good sheets as the weather gets colder, 6-oz. flannel is where it’s at (followed closely by 5-oz. flannel, but 6-oz. is the softest, thickest, and most luxurious).

I recently got a great question from an old friend, T, that I thought was very interesting and worth a discussion here — she’s wondering what businesswomen should wear in the Middle East (specifically Qatar, pictured with a stock photo here). Just curious if you have done any posts on Corporette on appropriate wear for … Read More about What Businesswomen Should Wear In the Middle East
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Happy Halloween! This sheath dress is from Emerson Rose, which may or may not be the brand that Nordstrom intends as a replacement for Classiques Entier, which before that sort of replaced Semantiks.

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This $58 dress from eShakti is really cute. I like the sash effect in the front — I think it’s a nice take on the corset trend that seems to be everywhere, but more wearable and easier to get a … Read More about Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Knot Front Cotton Knit Empire Dress
These embellished snakeskin pumps from Isabel Marant look gorgeous. I love the mix of green and blue and beige and brown, and I think wearing these would be a great and easy way to add a lot of personality to an otherwise neutral outfit.

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. A lot of readers have noted that they prefer a popover style blouse vs. a button-front blouse, which I think makes sense — it’s easier to iron and to care for, and there are fewer buttons to worry about.
