Returning from my 10-year college reunion I realize I've learned a lot when it comes to style and fashion. Herewith, my top-ten lessons learned in the past 10 years.
Lesson #1 Cut-offs and flannel shirts are appropriate only in the middle-of-nowhere Ohio.
Lesson #2 Purses are not evil and are sometimes a lot better than big, bulky backpacks
Lesson #3 Perfume is not “girly” but nice and appropriate
Lesson #4 Heels can and should be worn on occasion, but that occasion is usually not in the middle-of-nowhere Ohio
Lesson #5 Product is your friend, especially facial moisturizer and hair care product
Lesson #6 Drinking a lot of beer = having a beer gut
Lesson #7 Painting one’s toe nails is not “girly” and is absolutely necessary when exposing the toes
Lesson #8 Wearing a lot of black does not make you a miserable, negative New Yorker
Lesson #9 The pinnacle of shopping existence is not necessarily J.Crew
Lesson #10 Never say never
