Budget Thursday: Jersey-Knit Swing Dress

This swing dress is definitely on the more casual side, but readers have been singing its praises over at Corporette. They say it’s comfortable and flattering and that it could work for a casual office. The dress comes in nine colors and patterns in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes, and it’s machine washable, too. It’s $30 at Old Navy but often on sale — right now, 40% is taken off at checkout.  Jersey-Knit Swing Dress

Psst: Amazon’s toy deal of the day is 35% off on Alex Toys, including a bunch of magic/science kits, girly craft kits, preschool art projects, and ZOOB building sets.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Tweed Knit Jacket

washable tweed knit jacket If you like the look of tweed jackets — but are committed to only wearing machine washable clothes due to kid/pet/other reasons — then note that Ming Wang often has knit jackets that have a tweed-type look. To me this is a bit much with the matching shell — for some reason I’m seeing it with, for example, a light blue shell and gray pants — but you do you. The jacket is $325 at Nordstrom.

Psst: Note that almost every day Amazon is including a toy or toy category in their “deal of the day” — today it’s “character” stuffed animals from Sesame Street, Curious George, Pokéman, Star Wars, Mickey Mouse, and more. These are often better than Black Friday sales — we’ll try to include them every day as we can.

Washable Wednesday: Valentine Tie Front Blouse

This really cute blouse is from Cooper & Ella, and I think it’s playful but sort of sophisticated — and I always like red and blue as a color combination because it feels fresh. This top just kind of looks perfect — and there’s a sleeveless style in the same print. (The one pictured also comes in a geometric pattern.) And bonus: It’s machine washable. The blouse is $120 at Nordstrom and has a couple of positive reviews so far. Valentine Tie Front Blouse

A couple of plus-size alternatives are from Eloquii: striped and solid (both machine washable).

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Ruffle Trim Sweater Jacket

I always like sweater jackets because they’re comfortable and let you move, bend, etc. — they feel freer than blazers but still look professional. They’re also good for fall as a lightweight jacket for the office and for something to keep at work. This would be nice over a gray dress, maybe for a work party or something like that. I like the faux waistband in the back, and I like the little ruffle details. (My only issue is the gold buttons, but if they’re not your style they can easily be switched out.) The jacket is machine wash cold and lay flat to dry. It’s only available in red in most sizes, but it’s still in black in “woman petites.” The blazer is $149 at Talbots (in four size ranges), but they have frequent sales, of course, so keep an eye out. Ruffle Trim Sweater Jacket

Budget Thursday: Faux Leather Trim Cotton Poplin Sheath Dress

This dress from eShakti is completely customizable — if you don’t like the cap sleeves, for example, you can change them (as I might) to sleeveless, short sleeves, or elbow-length sleeves; you can change the length of the skirt; and you can get every single dimension customized. It does not have pockets, but it does have a concealed back zip, bodice darts, and bra-strap keeps, and it’s machine washable. It just looks like a great basic dress and a nice budget option. I always feel like eShakti is a font of affordable workwear if you can get your measurements right and put in the time and effort to figure it out — I haven’t done it yet myself. (You can also choose one of the standard sizes of 0–36W.) For $55, this definitely seems worth a try! Faux Leather Trim Cotton Poplin Sheath Dress

Washable Wednesday: Kathryn Dress

This dress from Boden has sleeves, pockets, and a concealed back zip, and it’s fully lined — amazing! I think the polka dots are fun and cute without being too twee — it comes in a green-and-navy polka dot and the pictured gray-and-navy. (It looks like the dots are black onscreen, but the one reviewer says they’re actually dark blue.) It’s available in regular and long sizes and is $200 — but you can get 25% off right now with promo code 7V2T. Kathryn Dress

Two lower-priced options are from Old Navy (regular, tall, and petite) and Shoptiques. Here’s a dress in plus sizes (if you’re not crazy about the lace trim, you can always remove it) and a maternity dress.
