10th Commandment: November 5

Nov 5, 2013

Hi Belle,

I saw your post about pastels for fall, can you suggest a few more outfits that work with pastels?  I love ballet pink and I’d love to be able to wear all year.  Thanks!

395383_in_lIris & Ink Angora Sweater ($148)

This sweater reminded me of the Reiss Honey Cashmere Sweater that was on the blog last week, but at a nicer price.  If you also like ballet pink, but need a sweater under-$100, try this Hayden Cashmere sweater or this Halogen 3/4 sleeve sweater.  Plus-size?  Try this cashmere sweater from Kohl’s that has a cable-knit yoke.

Not crazy about pink?  I would check out mint, lavender, pale blue or buttercup instead.

Check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear pastel pink in the fall.

  1. It’s pretty but as a rule I avoid angora because it sheds like crazy and it drives me nuts trying to lint brush myself all the time.

    Hi Belle! I don’t think the two ways ever got posted yesterday. Do you still plan to have one?

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
