+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: October 21

Sometimes, I title these posts and think, “My goodness, where has 2013 gone?”

Today, it’s black blazers that aren’t meant to be worn as part of a suit.  I think every woman should have a non-suit blazer.  If you wear your suit jacket too much (esp. if the bottom isn’t getting much wear), you’ll age it prematurely.  It’s good to have a stylish basic that can pick up the slack.

    Clicked through to Zara to find those checkered pants. Alas, they have ankle-cut inseams. I do not feel comfortable with a pant-to-shoe gap.
