10th Commandment: September 26

Sep 26, 2012

Elected Official

3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Sleeve Top ($795)

Hill Staffer

Aiko Leather Sleeve Tee (Intermix, $198)

Paid Intern

Top in Knit and Leather-like Sleeves (Asos, $44)

Leather accents and trims are hot this fall.  However, leather can be expensive and I know some of you prefer not to wear it for ethical reasons.  So this top from Theory gives you a similarly edgy look without the leather for under $100.

    I really love this trend and am pretty bummed out to be too pregnant to pull it off right now. Good choices, Belle!

    I'm not a fan of this look/trend at all. However, so glad you posted the option from Asos. As much as I don't like the look, seeing it “on a person” as opposed to just the item itself, it looks a little better. Would this look be office appropriate? It seems either too casual or too risky a look for many a Washington offices?

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
