Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Contrast Lined Dress

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

Donna Karan New York Contrast Lined DressHappy Monday! I’m digging this simple black dress from Donna Karan New York. As always, I’m particularly fond of the details — the red and white contrast trim at the cuffs and hem. The bones of the dress look great too, especially considering that elbow-length sleeves are hard to find. The dress is $1,295 at Bloomingdale’s. Donna Karan New York Contrast Lined Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Resort Boyfriend Blazer

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

I think this may be the first time that something from Guess is making an appearance on Corporette — yes, it’s a mall store from the 80s, but this looks like a really cute blazer.  The crisp white does look perfect for a corporate meeting at a resort (or just for summertime generally) — I like the gently sloped, almost shawl-like collar, and the slight touch of gray on the lining of the sleeve.  It’s $98 at Guess.

Halogen® Knit Bow Top
iconThe Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on — as always, they’re marking down new fall merchandise for a limited time; prices rise after August 1. For today’s TPS I like this knit bow top. Love the ruched sleeves, the deepish V, and the fact that it’s a knit instead of a blouse. It’s available in ivory, black, espresso, magenta, and gunmetal. The price is currently $37.90 — but it will be $58 after the sale ends.  Halogen® Knit Bow Top

Splurge Tuesday’s TPS Report: Striped One-Button Jacket

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

Giorgio Armani Exclusive Striped One-Button JacketHappy Tuesday! I am absolutely loving the wide stripes and the high button on this Giorgio Armani jacket. The interplay of the stripes is fascinating to me — the vertical stripes (of the arms, the shoulders, and just behind the button) contrast beautifully with the diagonal stripes, and I love that the diagonal lines on the lapel go in a different direction than the diagonal lines on the body. Fabulous. Was $2295, marked to $918 (lucky sizes only). Giorgio Armani Exclusive Striped One-Button Jacket

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Painted Cardigan

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

Leifsdottir Painted CardiganI always like a cardigan for a casual day, and I love this creamy Leifsdottir cardigan with an ombre artsy pattern on it. I’d wear it as a layering piece with an otherwise boring outfit — say, a navy pencil skirt and a white silk tee — and perhaps pick up one of the colors in the cardigan in my pumps, such as the pink. It’s $198 at Neiman Marcus. Leifsdottir Painted Cardigan

Thursday’s TPS Report: Long Sleeve Ruffle Blouse

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

parker ruffle blouseShopBop has a ton of great sales going on, including this silk ruffled blouse. This strikes me as a classic — yes it’ll be in sometimes (like right now with ruffles) and out sometimes (I’m sure at least one commenter will call out “pirate!”), but ultimately this is a look that will swing back around every few years, so it’ a good investment. I’d wear it with a gray pencil skirt and, perhaps, a textured, colorful blazer — purple velvet, perhaps.  Was $187, now $93.50 at ShopBop. Parker Long Sleeve Ruffle Blouse
