Tuesday’s TPS Report: Uptown Jersey Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Many thanks to this week’s TPS guest poster, Road Warriorette!

Uptown Jersey DressI have to be honest about something: Boden is my favorite. I love all of their clothes, I want to live in their catalog, and it took a lot of will power to restrain myself from doing all of this week’s TPS reports in Boden. Whew, glad I got that off my chest. Now, on to the dress. I know some of you are going to say, No! Not jersey! But I promise—Boden jersey is heavy, doesn’t cling, doesn’t wrinkle, and is lovely and work-appropriate. It also packs incredibly well. The Uptown Jersey Dress is the best type of dress: comfortable yet professional, feminine but not “twee”, and comes in vibrant colors as well as a sophisticated black. I like the purple “Violet Flower Press” the best, and would pair it with yellow flats and a cardigan for a work+travel day. Note: go by the measurement chart as some Boden items run a bit big. Available in Violet Flower Press, Ruby Flower Press, Leaf Flower Press, and Black, in 2-18 Regular and Long, and 2-10 Petite. Uptown Jersey Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Print Jersey Top Wrap Dress

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

Donna Morgan Print Jersey Top Wrap DressHappy Wednesday! I like the look of this black and white dress from Donna Morgan, available in regulars and petites. The top is apparently a “true wrap bodice” but the skirt is a “partially-stitched down, faux wrap” — whatever it is the reviewers seem to love it, as all give it 5 stars. It’s $128 for both regulars and petites at Nordstrom. Donna Morgan Print Jersey Top Wrap Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Herringbone Jersey Dress

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

Armani Collezioni Herringbone Jersey DressLove, love, love this herringbone jersey dress from Armani Collezioni. Love the feminine silhouette with a “masculine” pattern, and I think the scoopneck, sleeves, inverted pleats, and concealed back zipper (huzzah!) are perfect for the office. It’s $745 at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Herringbone Jersey Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: “Callandra” Three-Quarter Sleeve Scoopneck Dress

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

Lauren by Ralph Lauren “Callandra” Three-Quarter Sleeve Scoopneck DressThis is the kind of dress that, I think, can make a perfect desk to dinner transition if need be. Love the scoop neckline, the paneled hem, and the “silky, fluid matte jersey.” For the office, I’d wear it with a camisole or slip beneath it (at least the first time), and perhaps a set of pearls or some other statement necklace to raise the focus from the neckline to my face. I might layer a blazer on top, or perhaps just pair it with a simple pair of pumps or even, depending on the mores of the office, some knee-high boots. It’s on a pretty good sale right now — was $179, now marked to $125.30 — and if you shop with your Bloomingdale’s card you can take another $25 off a purchase of $100-$250.

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Merona Jersey Skirt

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

This skirt is only $15, sure, but the reviews are glowing — particularly from curvy women.  They say it’s comfortable, wearable year-round, and washable: sounds good to me.  It’s available in brown (pictured), black, and gray for $14.99 (with free shipping over $50). Lovely. Merona® Women’s Jersey Skirt – Natures Brown

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Bob Dress

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

Reality in Style Bob DressWe’re loving this “Bob” dress by Reality In Style, which is a new brand to us. In addition to a ton of cute, work-appropriate clothes, we like the way they use women other than professional models to model the clothes — for example, the woman pictured is a pre-school teacher; others are grandmothers or physicians.  Regarding Bob — we love the sleeves, the knotted detailing at the waist, the flattering V, and the stretchy jersey. The dress is $265 (and comes in black and gray), but Reality in Style was kind enough to offer a discount coupon just for Corporette readers — use code “corporette” to get 25% off until 7/31, bringing the price down to $198.75.  Reality in Style Bob Dress
