10th Commandment: September 6

Sep 6, 2012

 

Jeweled Sweatshirt (J.Crew, $118)

Several years ago, I bought a lightly sequined sweatshirt with a hood thinking that I’d wear it on the weekends.  I wore it constantly.  I wore it with jeans on Fridays.  I wore it with heavy wool skirts on Mondays.  I wore it with a long pleated chiffon skirt to a birthday party.  I loved it, and I was heartbroken when the dry cleaning solution turned it from a gorgeous charcoal grey to a sickly mauve.  But this jeweled sweatshirt from J.Crew might be a good replacement.

If you like this look but can’t justify paying more than $100 for a sweatshirt, you’re in luck.  Mango has a very similar sweatshirt with a little less bling for $49.  If you’re problem is that you need more sparkle, VS has a sweatshirt for that for $50.  Aqua has a cool sweatshirt with sequins on the shoulder for $69.

Look for Less

    Wow, this is just perfect!

    Welp, looks like I will be spending $118 on a sweatshirt. This is amazing!

    A hooded sweatshirt? To the office?? Even sequined and on a casual day, that seems too far.

    Really, a sweatshirt? I have a hard and fast rule of no sweatshirts outside the house. Ever.

    This looks like a candidate for a DIY project! A $20 trip to AC Moore, a night with a Netflix movie and a needle and thread, and it'll be mine!

    A hoodie…with a chiffon skirt…to a friends birthday party? I had to read this post twice to make sure I got it right. This is unexpected. Is it April Fools Day today? Belle, I really want to trust that you looked good in that combo, but I'm having an awfully hard time conjuring up a good mental image.

    This will look really great with my sequined Uggs and frayed denim mini skirt.

    Really though- this is cute, but… This looks very childish to me. Adorable on a 5-15 year old. Not adorable on a 25+ year old except if paired with jeans and hiking boots as a glammier version of a necessary item (in other words, this is only acceptable in situations when any other sweatshirt would otherwise be acceptable). A sweatshirt at the office? No way!

  8. Ugh, you gotta be kidding me. This reminds me of the chambray button down my Mom decided to embroider.

  9. Ellie says:

    Sorry, gotta go with A, Lisa, and Zaza on this… Yikes.

  10. T says:

    Did April Fools move to September 6th and no one informed me?!?! …Please tell me this was a joke post to see if we are paying attention. A hoodie…with sequins…in a shade of GREY… not so much.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
