This time last year, here’s what was on our minds… What to Wear to a Colleague’s Wedding Poll: Are Silk Dresses Appropriate for the Office? Golf Clothing for a Newbie When are Heels Too High to Wear to Work?
Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We’re loving this gray silk blend dress from Banana Republic. The watercolor print is interesting without being distracting (and: bonus points for being vaguely vertical, which is always flattering), and we love the high neckline. We’d wear it with a … Read More about Wednesday’s TPS Report: Watercolor wrap dress
We love, love, love these earrings — particularly for an office environment. They’re interesting but not overwhelming. They’re drop earrings without being dangly or distracting. And, they’re probably comfortable to wear (particularly if you have to talk on the telephone for a long time without a headset). Perfect! They’re $45 at Etsy, from seller Cinnamon … Read More about Coffee Break: Little Drop Earrings

We’ve wondered about this for a while as well, so reader J’s question strikes us as particularly interesting… After an interview, everyone knows that it is good manners to send a perfunctory “Thank You” note. However, is it still recommended that the “Thank You” … Read More about Should Your Interviewer Get a Thank-You Note or eThanks?
Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Reiss is another retailer that is fairly new to the States that has some great work pieces (despite their apparent affinity this season for the double-breasted blazer — do those look good on any woman?).

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Oooh – loving this colorful sheath dress from Piazza Sempione. The cool blue and purple hues strike us as seasonless, and the bateau neckline would look great with a set of pearls. Lovely. It’s $935 at Bergdorf Goodman. Cotton Chain-Belt … Read More about Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Cotton Chain-Belt Dress
Something on your mind? Chat about it here. Our casual wear recommendation for this week is this fabulous dress from Land’s End’s new line, Canvas.

The Limited has a lot of suiting on work pieces on sale right now, and reader K asked for our thoughts on this skirt. “I think it’s really fun and might be work-worthy with a good button down.

Nordstrom is having a big shoe clearance, so we swung by to see what, if anything, struck our fancy. We lurrve this interesting take on the classic slingback — the yellow accents really make the navy pop. We like that Bruno Magli was judicious with the use of yellow — it’ll peek out a bit … Read More about Coffee Break: Cartosio Pump
We got this question from reader C, and it struck us as an interesting topic… I have an article/poll idea: How much do Corporette readers donate to non-profits and which types of non-profits?
