10th Commandment: August 20

Aug 20, 2014

It doesn’t seem possible that it’s time to start shopping for sweaters again, but it is.  My favorite last year was an ivory cable-knit from Zara that will need to be replaced.  Here are the top contenders.

    Forget the sweater – I am lusting over those A McQ red leather pants. Divine

    I literally thought “damn, I really need a v-neck” and then scrolled to the end of the post. Belle wins at the internet.

      I wish there had been better choices for the v-neck, but I picked the best one. Can’t leave you girls out.

    Just a question – did anyone else notice that there is a skull on the top sweater? I did a double take, but now I can’t unsee it.

    Also, ivory sweaters are my favorite!

    I missed out on a cable knit sweater last year so I’m on admission to find one this season. I’d like to spend less than $100, but don’t care for the longer hem at the bottom of the Gap sweater. Will you keep us posted or revisit ivory cable knits as they become more available? Thanks for the post Belle!

    That would be “a mission.” Darn autocorrect!

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.

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.
