Thursday’s TPS Report: Falling Stones Tee

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

Falling Stones TeeI don’t know if this is a new thing from DvF — a cotton t-shirt emblazoned with one of her vintage prints — but I really like the idea of it.  Yes, I kind of wish it were silk or even rayon, but I’ll take cotton.  It’s washable, breathable, and will be much easier to take care of than something that needs dry cleaning or air drying. And, while $75 seems steep for a t-shirt, there are a lot of t-shirts in that price range that are far less appropriate to be worn to work.  The shirt is available for preorder from DVF.com, sizes P-L still available.  Falling Stones Tee

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: New Julian Two Dress

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

DIANE von FURSTENBERG Dress - New Julian TwoI still don’t own a classic DvF wrap dress — in part because I’ve been waiting for a great print that I could say, WOW, I love that. And, after years of waiting, I think I’ve finally found it! I love this abstract “cable squares” print. It kind of reminds me of a map, actually, especially with the occasional little pink squares. Love. It’s $365 at Bloomingdale’s (but a number of other stores have it as well, including Neiman Marcus). DIANE von FURSTENBERG Dress – New Julian Two

Thursday’s TPS Report: Bella Cashmere Mix Jumper

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

Reiss Bella CASHMERE MIX JUMPER LIGHT KHAKI Cashmere sweaters are probably not on your mind right now, but summer is a great time to get things like this on sale. Today I’m loving this cashmere sweater from Reiss (which actually has some great sales going on right now). The pattern is a bit fun without being over the top, and a cotton cashmere mix is great for early fall and late spring. I’d keep the outfit neutral for the office, wearing a black or white collared shirt beneath the sweater and a simple pencil skirt, perhaps accessorized with a long silver necklace. It was $175, now $87 (note that it’s also available in solid colors such as royal blue and cream). Reiss Bella CASHMERE MIX JUMPER

Thursday’s TPS Report: Floral-Print Pencil Skirt

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

whbm floral print skirticonI remember the days when White House | Black Market only sold black and white items — but it seems like the past few seasons they have been incorporating a bit of one color into each collection. This season it’s the lovely blue in this skirt (also in the shoes; there’s also belts and necklaces). I like the simplicity of the skirt, and the abstract nature of the pattern — worn with a black or white top and a black blazer, there’s nothing overly feminine about it. I might add purple pumps to the mix, just for a bit of color fun, but that’s me. The skirt is $88 at White House | Black Market. Floral-Print Pencil Skirt

Tuesday’s TPS Report: BCBGMAXAZRIA Printed Silk Dress

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

bcbg printed silk dressToday, I’m liking this dress from BCBGMaxAzria — the abstract pattern is fun, and I love that color of blue. At 35.5″ long, I would also hope that the dress would be long enough for those of us who aren’t model-height. I’d wear it with nude pumps in the spring and a long silver necklace, or perhaps with black tights, black suede pumps, and a long boyfriend cardigan in the winter. It’s $238 at Lord & Taylor.
