A great bag instantly elevates any outfit.
I'd like to think she didn't have my personal rarely-seen-not-in-denim style in mind when she offered up this particular nugget, but I'll take it all the same. Whether you're wearing a ballgown or boyfriend jeans, you'll be able to totally fake pulled-togetherness with a great bag. And it is with this piece of style advice that she forgave my decision to wear a striped t-shirt to our last dinner . . . because I was carrying my latest Mark Cross sample sale score. Bottom line? It's all about (fashionable) distraction.
