Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Our guest poster this week: Lisa Carnochan from Privilege — a huge welcome, Lisa! – Kat
I will be here all week with my TPS picks. Thank you to Kat for the lovely invitation. As background, I’m 54, semi-retired, and tend to look at professional attire from the end of that long career hallway. Imagine rows upon rows of office doors and greige carpet. Cold bagels, smart people. Oh, wait. That was then.
Today, for Splurge Monday, let’s look at a piece you might wear at the pinnacle of your profession. I imagine this vintage Chanel dress, pleats swinging, on the board room threshold. Or, if things take a difficult turn, testifying at a Senate hearing. Brown pumps. Diamond studs. A trench coat for the passage from driver’s car to building lobby. Not much else required.
You will want, by then, to have established a certain style signature. You will want others, when they see you, to nod their heads a little. “Oh yes, she often wears vintage, or dresses, or large collars.” The specific details are yours to choose. The dress is $1,260 at C.Madeleine’s. 1960s Chanel Pleated Camel Vintage Dress
