We’re always a fan of a purple pump, and we like these dark purple suede ones from Bandolino. We like the quarter strap (more flattering than a straight-across-the-ankle Mary Jane, but just as walkable); also liking the chain detailing, provided they’re not too noisy in real life. The price is certainly right — the shoes … Read More about Coffee Break: Bandolino Purple Suede Heels

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. OK: Let’s all agree to ignore the styling (unless you have something really witty to say, in which case, bring it on). Still: this is a fabulous dress.

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. In keeping with our apparent newfound love for electric purple (seriously, no idea why but we are seeing it everywhere for fall!) we like this textured wool jacket from Donna Karan. We like that it’s big enough to fit over … Read More about Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Topper Jacket
Something on your mind? Chat about it here. For weekend wear, the farthest we might venture into the “peep-toe bootie” trend is this Matteo pump (which even then is technically not a bootie). We like the fact that it’s beige (elongates the legs), has a platform (easier to walk in) and dips down in the … Read More about Weekend Open Thread

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Today, we like this simple cotton/spandex pencil skirt. We like that it’s machine washable, and that the chains and bow details at the belt are removable if they’re not your thing. The skirt was $88, and is now $49.99 at … Read More about Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Swag Pencil Skirt
This strikes us as an amazing alternative to a classic 16″ pearl necklace — love the color, and the pop of blue — and there’s something nice about being able to answer the question “what IS that made of” with “vintage red Ethiopian ‘tomato’ glass, Bali silver & sapphire nugget.” We’d wear it with a … Read More about Coffee Break: Saba Necklace
So I have been seeing the peep-toe bootie every.where this season, usually styled with skirts or cropped pants. And I always think the same thing — “Cute! But definitely in that ‘I’m-so-hip-I-don’t-need-to-wear-flattering-clothes way.’” You know, like harem pants and those huuuge 80s-ish glasses that some kids wear. The peep-toe bootie trend also strikes me as … Read More about Poll of the Day: Will You Wear a Peep-Toe Bootie to Work?
