We got an e-mail from reader C, raving about this “Beacon” shoe: The heel is higher than it looks and oh-so-so-comfortable. I bought these to be able to commute in dress pants and heels (my comfy commuting flats only work with skirts b/c all my trousers are tailored to heel-length). From the subway stop, I … Read More about Coffee Break: Naturalizer – Beacon

This strikes us as a great, very fresh-looking canvas bag from Kate Spade — the floral design is beautiful, and the open top would allow you to shove a folder or notepad or two in there. It’s $295 at Zappos.com. Kate Spade – Neptune Avenue Stevie (Bluebell) (L-2)
Someone asked us this week whether we were planning on writing about Mother’s Day. Our initial thought was, um, no — because hey, while we all have them (and some of us are them), what is there of particular concern to professional women and overachieving chicks to discuss? Then we started thinking — behind so … Read More about Open Thread – Ode to Moms

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Today we’re liking this classic button front from Theory. We love the light blue windowpane, as well as the slightly wide collar.
