Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.
We like this happy blue leather bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs — it’s got a polka-dotted lining, inside pockets for your technology, and zippers that pull down to the base of the bag (which has feet, so the leather is protected if you set the bag down). It’s also a bag that we wouldn’t feel bad about having on our arm if we happened to be running around in the rain — April showers, anyone? We also like the price, which is rare for a Splurge Monday — $498 at Zappos, which isn’t that bad for a designer bag. (It also comes in a more demure putty gray, if the indigo is too much for you.)
