10th Commandment: August 20

Aug 20, 2012

Before we start, a short note about this week.  I am on vacation out West with my family, so there will be just two posts per day.  Also, the morning posts will be some fabulous under-$100 items that will be great for the transition from summer to fall.  See you in a week!
 

V Neck Pencil Dress (Topshop, $92)

This dress reminds me of a folded pencil dress that Kate Middleton wore earlier this year.  With a neutral color and short sleeves,  it’s perfect for the summer to fall transition.  And it also comes in tan, if you’re not feeling the black.

    This dress is so perfect, and the price is oh-so-nice. While I didn't see what Kate wore earlier this year (how does she always nail outfits? I mean, even before she was royalty. I'm not trying to emulate her, but I am consistently impressed) until just now, I would say this is comfortably close without being too obvious a copycat.

    Whoever it is that continues to advise Mrs. Obama to wear the shrug lengh tops should be stop immediately. While the little jackets and sweaters are adorable, they do not flatter. She is a tall gal, even a couple of inches longer would help the silhouette. kate keeps it classic! Who doesn't look good in classic cuts and lengths? An edge to classic…in this area, there is confidence.

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 […]
