10th Commandment: June 9

Jun 9, 2010

When I’m on a long plane flight, my time-wasting activity of choice is watching all the rom-com, chick-flicky movies that I have too much dignity to order from Netflix.  Last week, the movie of choice was “When In Rome.”  The movie was fun, Kristen Bell is adorable and the costume department put together some lovely outfits.  One of my favorites had a gray-striped blazer with white piping thus, I present my current obsession: striped blazers.

Elected Offiicial

Nanette Lepore Rogue Jacket (Piperlime, $400) 

Hill Staffer

Rouched Sleeve Fiance Jacket (Searle, $188)

Unpaid Intern

Striped Jacket (Banana Republic, $89)*

Please notice that while the model is wearing stripes together, she’s wearing stripes of different widths.  This makes it okay.  Not my favorite look, but okay.
