+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: September 2

When you have a professional job, it can be difficult to follow the trends.  After all, how many women can wear lace up booties, fur vests or open-back blouses to the office?  This week, the morning post will feature trends that even working woman can embrace.


Exotic Embossed Top ($69)

Textured fabrics are a great way to add interest to a simple piece.  This Ann Taylor blouse has an snakeskin embossing on it to create texture.  This black Banana Republic blouse offers the same look.  I also like this Piperlime top embossed with a Baroque-style pattern.  And this reptile-embossed sweatshirt from Vince Camuto is bound to be a hit given its under-$100 price.

I also found this awesome Ted Baker skirt with a black, reptile look.

Plus-size: Calvin Klein Emboss Top ($79)  Petite: Banana Republic Embossed Top ($69)
