I recently read this post on Margo & Me, in which Jenny Cipoletti poignantly describes the difference in style of Los Angelenos and New Yorkers. Overall, my style identifies more towards that of east coasters––subtle, neutral, and classic. That being said, many fashionistas tend to dress like New Yorkers in the fall and winter, and west coast boho babes in the spring and summer. Geography aside, the most coveted items in my closet are classics that are sure to stand the test of time.
Among the crème de la crème, are my patent leather Christian Louboutin pumps. They were my very first splurge years ago, and a classic that I’m confident will hold residence in my closet for years to come. Recently, I added the Givenchy ‘Antigona’ bag to my collection after ogling it for the better part of the past decade. As I get older (argh!) and my style becomes more defined, there are certain classics like this camel coat and cashmere knits that I reach for whether I’m heading to the office or to Sunday brunch. While fashion is (thankfully) constantly changing, it’s nice to count on coveted essentials season after season—or in some cases—decade after decade.
