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?

  2. Amy says:

    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.

    I ordered this immediately upon seeing it.

  4. Amy says:

    Belle, do you own this sweater? How is the sizing?

  5. Kit says:

    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!

  6. MS says:

    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!

  7. Beth says:

    I would be all over this if it wasn't dryclean only. :/

  8. X says:

    This is terrific, can't wait to own it! Thanks Belle

  9. Larissa says:

    Aww it's sold out now. 🙁

    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!

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 […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
