10th Commandment: September 28

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.

    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?

    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!
