10th Commandment: October 26

Oct 26, 2010

The process for putting together the morning post is simple: find item that you covet, find two like items in alternative price points, assemble post.  But occasionally, I find an item for which I can locate nothing comparable and I wind up tossing the item to the side. 

Not today.  

Today, the item in question will not be cast aside due to the failure of American designers to imitate, copy and steal from one another.  Today, I will not cobble together three items that are similar in looks but not in taste.  Today, the item will stand alone and bask in the glory of its singular loveliness because no true diva shares the spotlight.

Marc Jacobs Ozzie Square Wallet (ShopBop, $178)

    The design is gorgeous. My heart fluttered, I was about to put it on my Christmas list, but then noticed… faux leather?

  3. Belle says:

    I thought about that too, but since real ostrich wallet runs $1,200, I'm willing to overlook it. I can't imagine MJ throws his name on something that isn't quality.

    Why don't wallets include places to hold checkbooks anymore…or am I among the last that still occasionally writes checks?

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

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.
