Thursday’s TPS Report: Admiral Shawl Cardigan

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

Martin Osa Admiral Shawl CardiganWe’ve never been to a Martin & Osa store, but we’ve heard good things about its quality.  Today we’re liking this cotton cardigan — we like the buttons on the placard, as well as the horizontal ribbing.  We’d wear it with trousers and a nice blouse or tee to the office.  It’s $79 at Martin & Osa, available in red, navy, and light blue.  Admiral Shawl Cardigan

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

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

I got four of these lightweight sweaters from Martin and Osa and might go back for more… they’re a silk blend, really soft, perfect warmth for an air conditioned office, look good alone or under a suit jacket (and they don’t get bulky), plus they hang well on the body and don’t pull across the chest, which is nice for those of us who regularly encounter that issue. I got mine in the store for $19.95 and used a 20% coupon they mailed to me, but there are plenty of coupon codes floating around the internet.

Great deal, and the sweaters are classic.  We’d wear a button-down beneath them for the office, or perhaps layer a tank in a contrasting or complementing color.  They’re $19.95 at Martin & Osa.  Perfect V-Neck Sweater

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Martin + Osa’s Candy-Stripe Cuffed Shirt

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 lovely basic fitted shirt from Martin + Osa, which generally specializes in casual clothes — we like the darts below the bust, the wide cuffs, and the overall look of the stripes.  We especially like that it’s on sale for $29.95 (was $69.95) and still available in two colors and lots of sizes.   Martin + Osa’s Candy-Stripe Cuffed Shirt
