Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Cole Haan’s Genevieve Small Carpet Bag

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Cole Haan - Genevieve Small Carpet Bag (Laquer Red) - Bags and Luggage
We love this large satchel/tote (8″ shoulder drop) from Cole Haan, with its woven leather exterior, and rich, sophisticated red color — we even love the name of the red:  Lacquer Red.  Like all Cole Haan bags there are special pockets inside for your technology, and the bag is roomy enough that you should be able to fit everything else, as well.  It’s $431 at Zappos.  Cole Haan – Genevieve Small Carpet Bag (Laquer Red) – Bags and Luggage

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: New York & Company’s City Style Ribbed Sweater Shell

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
New York & Company Women's City Style Ribbed Sweater Shell - Black
With fall so nearly here, we’re eager to start wearing our twinset shells on top of our blouses for more of a collegiate look.  It’s a great way to deal with gaping buttons, and to dampen an otherwise loud print.  We’d rock it with a suit and a brightly-colored printed blouse, or for a layered look with a blazer and trousers (or a pencil skirt) made out of different fabrics.  This sweater shell (which does come with a matching cardigan, for another classic fall look) is $26.50 at New York & Co.   New York & Company Women’s City Style Ribbed Sweater Shell – Black

Thursday’s TPS Report: Maggy London Starburst Ponte Knit Dress

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

This strikes us as a great fall dress.  It’s past Labor Day, so the deep purple color is perfect for the season.  The sleeves aren’t too long or short for the sometimes-hot-sometimes-freezing weather, and the neckline and cut is flattering.  Love it.  It’s $98 at Nordstrom’s, in regular and petites, 0-16.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Belted Flannel Skirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Today’s item is recommended by reader C, who gushes over the “amazing pencil skirts” at Talbots, noting that while she’d like to wear Nanette Lepore to the office, “these will have to do.” And indeed, we do like the look of these skirts — the cascading folds look lovely but still professional.  This also strikes us as a great price for a fully-lined wool/spandex skirt.  It’s available in sizes 2-20, as well as petites and plus sizes, at Talbots for $129.   Belted flannel skirt

Pour La Victoire Women's Valda Mary Jane Pump
Oooo — great green patent Mary Jane pump from Pour La Victoire (available in black and taupe, as well).  We love the color, the strap for added support, and the sturdy heel.  Lovely.  We’d wear them with navy pants and a dark purple sweater.  They’re available at Endless for $189 (with a special offer for $20 off which appears when you check out).  Pour La Victoire Women’s Valda Mary Jane Pump

Bargain Thursday’s TPS Report: Madden Girl’s Umaa Pumps

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Note: in view of the holiday weekend we’re going to end our week on Thursday — we hope everyone else does also!
Madden Girl - Umaa (Red Paris) - Footwear
We gotta say, we don’t normally like to wear shoes by Steve Madden — but for some reason we find these irresistible.  We love the rich red, the contrast stitching on the cutouts, the buckle, and even the fun blue lining.  They strike us as modern but also a bit vintage; sort of a mix between an oxford and a gladiator.  Love ’em.  We’d wear them with gray trousers and a black blouse at the office, perhaps with another color in the mix — a purple necklace, a yellow brooch.  They’re $49.50 at Zappos.com.  Madden Girl – Umaa (Red Paris) – Footwear
