So I’ve received several suggestions for the 10th Commandment posts, so we’ll start on those next week. If you have a specific item that you would like to see on the site, e-mail the link to that item to capitolhillstyle (at) gmail (dot) com.
Last week, when I posted the interview attire, someone mentioned in the comments how much they’d like to see a cheaper version of the dotted Marc Jacobs blouse ($228) that seems to be turning up on every blog and TV show. I couldn’t find an exact match for the ivory top, but I think that this tie neck blouse from Anthropologie is just as chic at a much sweeter price.
Wrap Around Blouse (Anthropologie, $98)

That was me! Thanks for this post; I love it. Might have to scope out Anthro this weekend.
I like the Anthropologie top better — looks a little younger/more fresh and I like the more graphic pattern. And you can't go wrong with navy!
I've been an avid reader for about a year and a half, but this is my first comment, and I really hate to go here, but every since I saw Kourtney Kardashian wearing a blouse similar to the Marc Jacobs version I've been obsessed with finding this (yes, I'll admit the Kardashians are my guilty pleasure..).
I (and my paycheck) couldn't justify spending over $200 for a top. Belle, you are a lifesaver for finding a cheaper version of this! You are amazing.
I just got a blouse in the same tie neck style as this, only it's chiffon instead of silk – its good for a pop of color under a suit
I'm also obsessed with this blouse, and have been looking for a cheeper version everywhere. I just really loved the neckline on the original. I actually found a decent looking one at JC Penny (https://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/x6.aspx?grptyp=PRD&itemid=1c7fce1) for $14 – Sadly it's only avilable in larger sizes, so I'm still looking for something else, but thought someone else could benifit from my searching!
Nordstrom has a $58 polka-dot tie neck top that's a good alternative to the MBMJ top:
They had all sizes a few days ago, but right now it's only XL online.
Blakely, if you are refering to a blouse that Kourtney wore on the Today Show, I think that one might be from the K Dash collection and it is available at QVC.
the Nordstrom lookalike version is back in stock!
