Friday Finds Under $50

I stopped into a local Kohl’s in desperate need for a new cardigan.  I have to admit I really loved some of the new pieces from Lauren Conrad’s Fall collection.  Especially since they were retailing under $50!  I love how this reality TV queen stays true to her own style and created a feminine yet wearable collection that has separates suitable for all age ranges.   Take a peek at some of the items you can find on


Thursday Trend of the Week: Long Skirts

I was just reading my September People Stylewatch and couldn’t help noticing that the hottest skirt lengths for the fall are anywhere from the calf to the ankle.  Now I wasn’t a fan of the 80’s revival of the mini but being petite I am not sure about this 70’s/90’s revival of the long skirt trend either.  I think if you are going to wear a long skirt (especially when you are petite) it is best if you keep your top half fitted so the long skirt doesn’t overwhelm your frame no matter what size you are.  What do you think?  Will you be wearing this long skirt trend this season?


Workchic Suit of the Week

It has been awhile since I posted the Workchic suit of the week but with Fall just around the corner (I hope!) I couldn’t resist longing for a new suit.  A classic black suit can look instantly updated when paired with a blouse that is right on trend for the season.  Take for example the suit I found at The Limited can be purchased for $250.  That’s right the suit plus the blouse for approx $250!  You can easily go from the office to dinner out on the town with this outfit!  What do you think? 


Stay tuned for next week’s suit of the week!  If you have found a suit you just have to share with us just email us at or leave a comment below.

Workchic Business Casual Look of the Week: Camel & Denim

Camel is being hailed as the new black for Fall 2010 and as you can see from the Fall ad campaign from Chloé  major design houses are showcasing the trend.  In my mind what is not to love about this classic color palette?  I especially love the use of chambray denim and camel.  It is a perfect combination for those business casual days at the office when you feel you want to put the emphasis on casual.

With a little help from Polyvore, I found some classic combinations of this timeless color duo that is just in time for the Fall season.

Workchic Business Casual Find of the Week: Short-Sleeved Blazers

I can’t fathom wearing a long sleeve blazer in the weather we are experiencing in New York City.  So I began my search  for some short sleeve blazers that would give me that professional edge of a suit jacket yet still keep me cool in the home stretch of these hot summer days.  I also plan on getting use out of them in the cooler months by layering a cotton or jersey top underneath!  I decided to go to my favorite sale destination in July- The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

This Tweed Short Sleeve Blazer on the left is from Classiques Entier at Nordstrom.  It can be dressed down when worn with denim and a T-shirt underneath.  A ruffled collar and hem add some unexpected femininity to this Alberto Makali khaki jacket giving it the versatility one needs in their work wardrobe.  Not only do I love this Nanette Lepore Jacket being worn as part of a suit but I could see myself also pairing it with a black a-line skirt or charcoal grey wide leg trousers.  I also can’t resist the deep berry color!   Another fave of mine is also by Nanette Lepore.  Instead of a button closure there is a toggle closure which gives this short sleeve jacket just enough edge yet still remains professional for the office.   I love this jacket when it is paired with the matching pants but I would definitely wear it with my black pencil skirt or over my black sheath dress for that perfect business casual look!

These blazers show that you can still be stylish and chic in this heat! Stay tuned every Monday for our Business Casual find of the week!
