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.
For those with champagne taste but a beer budget, the flush of designer collaborations over the last few years with lower-priced stores (Target, H&M, etc) has been a godsend. Gap’s latest designer collection is getting rave reviews and is entirely available online. Take, for example, the dress at right, designed by finalists of the 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai of Vena Cava. It’s a simple cotton dress with a bold tribal print. It’s not for everyone, but then, most designer clothes aren’t. It’s $88 at Gap. Women: Vena Cava printed khaki dress – motorcross khaki
