10th Commandment: August 24


Airport Greeting Cardigan (Modcloth, $55)

My favorite thing about shopping is when you find a piece that looks way more expensive than the price on the tag; this cardigan is such a piece.  It has oodles of style, a slightly rocker, slouchy vibe and it is THE sweater to wear on the chilly train, plane or automobile. 

Basically, if you told me this cardi was Mike & Chris, Vince or Bailey 44, I would believe you. No one will guess that it’s Modcloth (unless, they also read this blog). 

And, on a personal note, I love that it is long enough in the back for those of us who are long torsoed.

    What's the general quality level of items from Modcloth?

    I find that it varies because Modcloth carries items from a variety of different brands. I would pay attention to the reviews buyers post about items as well as reading what kinds of fabrics are used. etc… I've gotten really pretty, well-made blouses and a fantastic jacket there, and I've also bought a couple things that were disappointingly flimsy and cheap-looking. Overall, I've been pleased with most purchases, though.

    Wow! As someone who is both tall AND long-torsoed, I'm always on the look out for tops that are both cute and long enough. This is fantastic and reasonably priced. It will be mine!

    Wow, they made this in charcoal? I remember this was on my wishlist back when they made it in deep hunter green — it looked like a winner then, and it still looks like a winner now!

    Aww it's sold out now. ­čÖü

    I have been dying to find something like this with an asymmetrical zipper/closing. Made me think of this (https://pinterest.com/pin/69665125456085135/) which I also love. If you find anything similar – let me know!
