Thursday’s TPS Report: Bandolino’s Inlet in Plumberry

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

Women's shoes/bags: Bandolino Inlet - Plumberry
I scream, you scream, we all scream for purple pumps — particularly when they’re part of a secret 20% off sale going on at Piperlime today only.  (All regularly-priced pumps are 20% off.)  We love the purple leather, embossed with snakeskin, and we adore the lower-than-3″ heel (it’s two and a half, but hey).  They’re regularly $79 at Piperlime; with the code PUMPS they’re now $63.

Wedneday’s TPS Report: Tracy Reese Sculpted Skirt

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

iconWell, this is something you don’t see every day — a perfectly shaped skirt that is both flirty and classic at the same time. We’re loving the sculpted shape, and the fact that it’s washable. We’d wear it with the highest heels we could passably walk in, and a fitted top with clean lines. It’s available for pre-order at Nordstrom’s for $125. Tracy Reese Sculpted Skirt

iconWhat a great summer bag!  The straw-colored canvas, the snappy kelly green leather — le sigh.  It’s a great price at eBags at the moment, too — now $199 (was $350). Cole Haan Sabra Canvas Box Tote

Update: eBags has another 20% off sale going on right now — it’s valid sitewide, which should include this bag. Wild Wednesday: Extra 20% OFF at eBags.com

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Anna Sui’s Military Wool-Blend Cardigan

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

We’re kind of loving that what looks like a crazy pattern is actually a fairly typical wool sweater pattern, but with expert detailing and tailoring from Anna Sui. Absolutely gorgeous. We’d wear it with all black and white, and choose one accessory to pop — red shoes,  perhaps, or an emerald green necklace. It’s $430 at Net-a-Porter.com. Anna Sui Military wool-blend cardigan

Thursday’s TPS Report: Abaete Women’s “Kendra” Silk Color-Block Skirt

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

Picture 5Okay, yesterday’s attempt at an A-line look may have been a swing and a miss, but we’re truly loving this silk colorblock skirt from Abaete, which is ever so helpfully included in Bloomingdale’s 40% off Fourth of July sales. We love the fact that it’s mostly black, but with just a bit of details that remind of us of an Art Deco painting we can’t quite remember right now. Gorgeous. And we love a good discount — this skirt was $242, and is now $86. Abaete Women’s “Kendra” Silk Color-Block Skirt

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Faux Wrap Jersey Dress

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

iconToday we’re loving this dress from Lauren by Ralph Lauren. We like the deep V, the empire waist, and the swingy skirt that looks professional yet kicky at the same time. We’d wear it with a bold, colorful necklace, and a fitted sweater or cropped jacket — you want to keep the clean line on the top half of your body. It’s $124 at Nordstrom.

Editor’s Note — We’ve noticed that a lot of commenters have noted that they’d like to see Corporette feature more A-line shapes — our hesitation has always been that it’s very difficult to find that shape in professional-looking clothes; so many end up looking like ladies-who-lunch clothes (or worse, party clothes). Maybe we’re looking in the wrong places, though — if any of you pear-shaped ladies have brands or stores that you absolutely adore (for work clothes), please let us know.
