10th Commandment: September 28

Sep 28, 2010

Elected Official

Thakoon Dolman Draped Dress (Shopbop, $1,355)

I tried hard to find items for today’s 10th Commandment.  I really did.  But once I saw this dress from Anna Wintour protege Thakoon, I was powerless to complete my task.

I’m smitten.  I’m starstruck.  And I’m unable to pollute this post with reasonable facsimiles of this dress, because no fiscally feasible frock could ever live up to the original.

Hopefully this blight is only temporary, and I’ll be back tomorrow with something that even an intern can afford.  But until then, I think I’ll just stare.

    Absolutely stunning! Exactly what I wish I were wearing on a dark and rainy day like today : )

    How much is it? Link?
    Gorgeous.

    Sorry guys, that was some critical information that I left out. Fixed.

  4. E says:

    Well, my dreams are crushed now. officially.
    That + rent = > my monthly paycheck. By a lot.
    Sigh…

    NECESSARY. Needs to be in my closet… totally can't afford though 🙁

    The whole ensemble is a feast for the eyes.

    I generally like or love the pieces Belle posts here…but I have to say…this does nothing for me. Maybe it's the drapiness (is that a word?) of the fabric, or the weird “V” appearing to point at the crotch…but I have to say I'm not a fan. I tend to carry weight in my middle, so maybe I just can't see this style on me. In any case, at least this means I won't want to spend $1300 on a dress…

    Time for more sweater dresses?

  8. Sarah says:

    Yes!! Especially A-line sweater dresses in fun colors? (I have two very different black A-line sweater dresses… but don't think I can justify another black one.) Would love some recommendations!

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
