Wednesday’s TPS Report: Arani Skirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Today we’re loving this simple A-line silk skirt.  Love the basketweave pattern; love the graphic black and white combination, and love that it’s an A-line.  We’d wear it with a pale blue blouse, a white blazer, and nude pumps.  It’s $119 at Dillards.  Antonio Melani “Arani” Skirt

Coffee Break: Maddox Flats

Fossil - Maddox Flat (Sand) - FootwearToday we’re liking these Maddox Flats from Fossil.  For starters, they have a great comfort rating on Zappos (always important!); we also like the buckle detail on the toe.  While we like the sand color (pictured), it should be noted that there are a ton of other colors — mostly with a brown buckle.  Ladies who primarily wear brown/beige, or have a zillion brown handbags — this one’s for you.  The shoes are $68 at Zappos.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Fluid’ Jacquard Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Classiques Entier Atelier 'Fluid' Jacquard Cardigan
iconWe’re liking this cardigan from Classiques Entier at Nordstrom today — it’s almost structured enough to sub for a blazer in a pinch. We love the combination of black and gray, as well as the folded collar. We’d try it with a belt, but would probably wear it open on top of a sheath dress or a pencil skirt. It’s $149 at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ($228 after the sale ends). Classiques Entier Atelier ‘Fluid’ Jacquard Cardigan

Coffee Break: Lily Ponytail Holder

France Luxe Lily Ponytail Holder - ClassicEvery Sunday, I’ve been tuning in to The Next Food Network Star — it’s a great show (and I totally have a girl crush on Susie Fogelson) but really, I’ve been tuning in to root for my old college friend Aarti, who was my suitemate and next-door-neighbor back in my sophomore year of college. (If you’ve been watching the show: yes, she really is that lovely, and charming, and beautiful, and fabulous. Go Aarti!!) One of her trademarks is a flower in her hair, though — and so in homage to her, I thought I’d show another a-ma-zing ponytail holder from France Luxe. I like that it’s a sophisticated take on a more relaxed accessory, and that it comes in match-your-hair kind of colors. Stunning. It’s$32 at FranceLuxe.com.  France Luxe Lily Ponytail Holder – Classic

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Side-Pleat Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Carolina Herrera Side-Pleat DressToday we’re liking this regal red number from Carolina Herrera.  Love the side pleats on the one shoulder, and the way they continue to the hem; it’s also great to see an asymmetric neckline again.  The dress is made of wool, cashmere and angora with a silk lining — so perhaps we’ll have to wait until the heat wave breaks to wear it.  It’s $2,790 at Bergdorf Goodman.  Carolina Herrera Side-Pleat Dress

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: “May” Knit Top

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Love the simple cowl neck stretch knit top pictured here — the cowl neck is almost like a necklace or a scarf, and the fact that it has sleeves means you don’t have to do much more to accessorize it.  Love the styling, too — the bun looks simple and classic, not schoolmarm-ish, and the hairstyle complements the bunched fabric at the base of the neck.  Lovely.  Was $69, now $41.40 at Dillards (in citrine and in blackicon). Antonio Melani “May” Knit Top
