10th Commandment: August 7

Tie-Neck Dot Top (J.CREW, $118)

Every season, there is one J.CREW piece that I know I’ll see everywhere.  This season, it’s this navy-dot top with the tie-neck.  And given its versatility, classic styling and simple print, it’s not hard to see why.

Looking for something similar under-$50?  This sleevless Nine West top has a simple black and white dot print and tie-neck.

    Belle I'm so excited to see how you style this blouse! I just got the less expensive version from the J.Crew Factory Store… sans bow.

    I tried this on last night at Friendship Heights and I hated it. Too blousy, no shape, and I have never liked ruffles or bows near the neck. Now I'm glad I won't have a item owned by every other woman in DC 🙂

    You can't possible post too many tie-neck blouses for me. I'm obsessed with the Banana Republic piece and loving the lower priced versions as well.

  4. Belle says:

    JS: Like all J.CREW pieces (unfortunately), this one is vanity sized to the max. I had mine taken in (cost $22) looks great.

    It's already posted if you're curious. They usually are. So no need to wait until 1.
