– The ChicagoTrib looks at the prevalence of sleep problems in today’s society. If you’re having trouble sleeping, we recommend working out in the morning, not drinking caffeine after 3 PM, and avoiding thoughts about work/career issues before bedtime. – Oldie but still relevant: WSJ’s The Juggle has lots of good links to old articles … Read More about Weekly Round-Up
Bargain Friday: TPS Report
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. Fit is key, however: the hem should be tailored to sit just above the knee, and the body of the dress should be fitted. Bare … Read More about Bargain Friday: TPS Report
Poll of the day! Pantyhose in the summer…

Thursday’s TPS Report: Twinkle
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
Blog round-up from before…
So, in the time before we actually got this website up and running, we were reading TONS of articles we thought our eventual readers might want to read about. Here are some of those articles… – Glamour looks at Hillary’s make-up on the campaign trail. – Bunnyshop blogs about cute business-card holders. – J.D.

Wednesday’s TPS Report
It’s been chilly and gray where we live, so it’s been great to watch all the women in their trench coats. We loooove this one by Soia & Kyo. Gunmetal gray, really well fitted, and oh so glamorous. If only we held more meetings outside!
Business Archetypes: Which Type Are You?
The LA Times has an interview with Hillary Clinton’s former “spiritual” advisor, Jean Houston; she says Hillary failed to embrace her archetype of “classical wise woman or priestess,” which would have quelled fears about the “rising feminine.” Um, yeah. It’s been a while since we were in a discussion about archetypes, but we do see … Read More about Business Archetypes: Which Type Are You?
Tuesday’s TPS Report: Juicy Couture
Behold: the perfect white jacket from Juicy Couture to combat office air conditioning in the summer. The shape and fabric of this jacket should be enough to keep the look from veering into MD-territory, and the length is perfect to layer a long tank, perhaps in a light blue or pink. We also love the … Read More about Tuesday’s TPS Report: Juicy Couture
10 Things You Should Know about a Business Lunch
What are the top 10 things you should know about a business lunch, especially if you’re a new hire or summer intern at a conservative office (summer associates, we’re looking at you!)! No, we’re neither Debrett’s nor Emily Post, but we know a thing or two about conducting ourselves properly at a business lunch… we’ve … Read More about 10 Things You Should Know about a Business Lunch
Monday’s TPS Report: Armani
Great, great jacket from Armani. Classic, fitted, beautiful. The sort of piece you’ll have for years.
Black ties and faux pas
We’re not sure why WSJ has this story *now*, given that black tie season is over (isn’t it?) but today they have a great article on why businesswomen need to be very, very careful in choosing an evening gown. It’s not just a matter of image; sometimes, there can be real trouble. Lisa Goldstein, an … Read More about Black ties and faux pas
Friday’s TPS Report
Here’s a fun and slightly different t-shirt to wear underneath a suit jacket or cardigan. We’d wear it with a white or black camisole underneath, at least the first time it’s worn — we’ve been burned by Anthropologie before. We think the square neckline would look perfect with a nice pair of pearls, or even … Read More about Friday’s TPS Report
