iconNordstrom’s Anniversary Sale continues through this weekend, including this lovely knit dress from Calvin Klein.  We love the royal blue color (it’s also available in a muted gray patterned print) — it’s bright, fun, yet professional.  We’d wear it with a boyfriend cardigan (perhaps putting the belt on top of the sweater), or perhaps a long pendant necklace that hits above the belt.  The dress is now $78 (from $118) and was available in plus size as well (though only 20W is left).  Calvin Klein Belted Ponte Knit Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Elizabeth and James Panama Blazer

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Elizabeth and James Panama Blazer
We’re loving this cropped, fitted blazer, although not in the picture from Shopbop.  This kind of blazer is a perfect way to dress up something with a bit more volume — a slightly billowy dress, t-shirt, or tank.  The details are what make this blazer worthy of the splurge (to us, at least) — the silk lining, the 5 buttons at the cuffs, the peplum in the back, and the asymetrical hem.  Lovely.  It’s $385 at Shopbop.com.   Elizabeth and James Panama Blazer

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Ann Taylor’s Cotton Stretch Short Sleeve Button Front Shirt

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

Reader K alerted us to this lovely blouse on sale at Ann Taylor; as she noted, “the ruching at the front gives us women with a little more up front the ability to button without a cami or double sided tape.” We love the ruching also, as well as the slightly puffed sleeves and the sharply pointed collar. It’s available at AnnTaylor.com for $29.99 (was $59) in a few different colors. Cotton Stretch Short Sleeve Button Front Shirt

Reader C wrote in to alert us to the great steals in the Brooks Brothers’ clearance section. Beautiful scarves, wraps and jewelry — including this lovely chunky necklace. Ten rows of resin beads means it’s a statement piece, without being too flashy. And the price is one of those why-can’t-they-all-be-like this prices: was $328, now $65. 17.5″ Toursade Necklace
