10th Commandment: August 29

Aug 29, 2013

A reader asked for some recommendations for ponte pants.  They’re a great alternative to leggings if you want something with more structure to wear under long tops or sweater dresses.

Also, I’m in Montana enjoying the last of the summer, so today will be the blog’s Friday.  We will also be off Monday for Labor Day, back Tuesday.  Have a fun and safe weekend!

    do you think ponte pants are work appropriate? I want to be able to wear skinnier pants at work if possible but with structure like ponte

    Just a heads up, the links for both the plus-size and petite pant go to the NYDJ Jodie Pant.

    Belle, are you (shockingly) not a fan of J.Crew’s pixie pant? While I appreciate that it comes in short lengths and multiple neutrals, I can’t ever get it sized right to work on me and had always blamed my short, leg-muscley, pear shaped frame.

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.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
