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.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
