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

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Odette Knit Dress

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

Happy Friday! I’m liking this knit dress from Target’s Merona Collection — a straight skirt, a flattering V-neck, and a “tumble dry low” care instruction? Sign me up. I’d wear it with a navy blazer for the office. The dress is also available in black and a taupey “earthworm,” and all 3 colors come in petite as well (navy/green, black, earthworm). It’s $34.95 at Target. Merona® Collection Women’s Odette Knit Dress – Navy/Green

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: Theona Printed Silk Wrap-Around Dress

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

Tory Burch TheonaHappy Monday! I’m liking this beautiful wrap-around dress from Tory Burch. Love the gathered bodice and self-belt, as well as the ladylike length. For the office I’d wear it with a structured, closely fitted blazer on top — perhaps in a white or navy — and closed-toe, nude-for-me pumps. Saks has the “purple chickadee” print (pictured); note that Tory Burch’s website also has it in a navy “featherfan” print. It’s $388 at both. Tory Burch Theona Printed Silk Wrap-Around Dress

dkny surplice knotted wrap dressI am loving this simple dress from DKNY today — nice high neckline, ladylike length, made from natural fibers (wool) — it’s just kind of perfect.  Add to all that the fact that it is on sale and still available in sizes S, M, and L — lovely!  Was $195, now $136.65 at Bloomingdale’s (where the sale has now hit 60% off).  DKNY Surplice Knotted Wrap Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: 3/4-sleeve faux-wrap dress

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

banana republic wrap dressI have heard many readers sing the praises of this wrap dress — enough so that I recently bought one for myself in black.  And it’s great — it’s easy to get the wrinkles out, comfortable to wear and to throw on in the morning, and generally all-around appropriate for work.  I wear a camisole under mine just to raise the neckline a bit, but in general: it’s a great dress.  Which makes the sales today even better — the black and gray colors are marked $49.99, while the purple and teal (available online only) are still marked $98.  However — with code BRJAN25, you can take 25% off your order today, which lowers the price even more.  The dress is available in regular, talls and petites.
