10th Commandment: July 30

Jul 30, 2010

A caged sandal is a gorgeous shoe for a night on the town.  In Summer, the shoe pairs perfectly with flirty summer dresses.  In Fall, you can add a nylon sock or pair it with a denim pencil and blazer.

    Love love love the Tracy Reese!

  2. A says:

    Cute sandals, but recommending socks with sandals?! Belle?!

  3. Belle says:

    A- Sheer socks(almost like nylons) in a fun color. Didn’t you see the runway shows or the J.Crew catalog?

  4. Bonnie says:

    No socks with sandals please. Just because they showed it on the runways doesn’t mean it’s a good look.

  5. Belle says:

    It’s amazing how reticent to even try something new people are. These are the same arguments people made about ankle boots, black and navy together, white after Labor Day and other trends. I think if you want a little something different, it’s a cute look but I am by no means arguing that it is for everyone.

  6. Stephanie says:

    Socks with sandals is not “something new.” It’s something inexcusable.

  7. Jamie says:

    I saw a girl on the street the other day pull off the sheer socks with sandals. Maybe not the most seasonally appropriate look.

    But, A) She didn’t seem to care
    And, B) Looked really awesome.

  8. Sorry! says:

    I have to say I disagree. Sorry Belle! Love your blog!

  9. EAC says:

    While I have seen come very cute socks/sandals combinations, I’m not sure I’d like them with the cage sandals pictured here. As much as I hate to admit it, love the Jessica Simpson pair.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
