Thursday’s TPS Report: Cotton/silk ruffle printed blouse

Banana Republic Cotton Silk ruffle printed blouseOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

We’re liking this cotton and silk ruffled blouse from Banana.  The small bit of print… the shape of the neckline… the loose fitting sleeves — like it all.  We’d wear it tucked in with a gray or navy suit, perhaps with pearls.  It’s $59 at Banana Republic, available in both the purple and a light green.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Wool-blend short cardigan

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

Vanessa Bruno Athe Wool-blend short cardiganWe’re liking this wool blend cardigan from Vanessa Bruno Athe, available at the Outnet.  The fit is perfect — cropped but not too cropped, fitted but not tight.  The color, admittedly, seems a bit more fall than spring (but hey, it is on sale) — for the spring we might try it with a very light gray (a gray with a bit of blue in it, we think) or perhaps (perhaps!) a light pink.  Was $280, now $140 (lucky sizes 6 and 8 only) at the Outnet.

Splurge Tuesday’s TPS Report: 7 For All Mankind Shrunken Blazer

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

7 For All Mankind Shrunken BlazerWe love a good shrunken blazer, and Piperlime has a ton of them in stock right now.  We like this gray one from 7 For All Mankind — we like the fit of it, the notched lapel, and the seaming in the back.  We’d wear it with just about anything, from a full skirt to a shift dress to a pair of trousers — and we feel like the gray is more conducive to a fun color palette than a black blazer would be, either using bold color or going for a sophisticated black-on-gray-on-white look. It’s $275 at Piperlime, in sizes XS-L.  7 For All Mankind Shrunken Blazer

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Cashmere V-Neck Sweater

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

Cashmere V-Neck SweaterWe’ve heard great reports on Ann Taylor’s cashmere this season, so this sale is too good to pass up — a variety of colors and sizes, in petites and regular, with lots of cashmere sweaters.  Our personal preference is always for the v-neck, and we like this one a lot, as it is not too low, not too high, and has regular-length sleeves.  It was $145, now marked $69, with an additional 40% brings it down to $41.40. (Use code SPRING40 to take 40% off a full-priced item while you’re there.)  Cashmere V-Neck Sweater

Thursday’s TPS Report: Sheer Jersey Necklace Dress

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

Anne Klein has some great sales starting now, including an extra 25% off all sales merchandise.  We like this simple jersey dress — which has a built-in camisole/modesty panel.  We’d dress it down a bit for an office and wear a long cardigan, a set of pearls, and a sedate pump (perhaps in a gray or skin-colored tone); and then when it was time to go out for the evening we’d ditch the cardigan and change into sexier shoes.  Was $168, now $99; with the 25% it comes to $75 (which also gets you free shipping).  This one is still available in sizes 2-14, but there are lots of other great work pieces in lucky sizes only.  Sheer Jersey Necklace Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Silk Charmeuse Herringbone Print Shirt Dress

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

Silk Charmeuse Herringbone Print Shirt DressWe are loving this silk charmeuse herringbone dress from Brooks Brothers which, we think, shows how a shirt dress can be uber classic, feminine, and graceful.  (As opposed to oh so many dresses out there right now that look like a man’s shirt with a belt slopped around it.)  That print — that silk — that sash!  (Although, we must admit, we are not digging the tights — are those brown?)  It’s on sale at Brooks Brothers for $147; was $368 — available in lucky sizes 10, 12, and 14.  Silk Charmeuse Herringbone Print Shirt Dress
