A Uniform (and My Closet Must-Haves)February 05, 2014
For all my carping about conspicuous logos being tacky, the unassailable truth is that...yes, I am also kind of a stickler for certain brands despite my vehement insistence of the opposite. I'll save my existential quandary for another day but have to admit that I am kind of enjoying this bag aside from its oppressive ubiquity.

Once in a while I would get requests from recent graduates or those looking to build (or rebuild) their wardrobes for a list of fashion items I consider "essentials." And I guess this outfit is what my essentials boil down to: a light-colored trench, a blouse with a fun twist, medium-washed denim, comfortable boots, and a roomy tote in a versatile color or print. Everything worn here can be worn very differently outside of it.
I guess that's the definition of a classic.
