There’s an interesting story in today’s WSJ regarding pantyhose, and how it causes a generational divide between workers. That’s definitely true!

We were surprised, … Read More about Generation Pantyhose

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend. Happy Monday! We’d … Read More about Monday’s TPS Report – Nanette Lepore Jacket
We can’t believe we forgot to blog about this — Jezebel had the most perfect picture of Claudia Schiffer looking absolutely gorgeous whilst out and about with her kid. Yes, she’s a supermodel, but what struck us was how professional and chic and fashionable and gorgeous she looks.

For Friday, a shirt dress from Liz Claiborne. Yes, yes, the brand is slightly stodgy, but Tim Gunn’s in charge now, and for $89 this dress is a nice steal.

Look, a cute blue top by Twinkle for $183. We like the details: the abstract print, the sheer (but still demure) top portion of the top, the slight flutter to the cap sleeves. We’d wear this under a suit for day — either a nice wide pantleg or a pencil skirt — and then remove … Read More about Thursday’s TPS Report: Twinkle
