Today I was thinking about friendship. Being close to someone means you know them at least as well as they know themselves, and you can make a reasonable assumption over what, or who, they might like. It’s also like belonging to a little club, where only those on the inside know how things work. Our office is like that. A small, intimate group who has been through a lot together, some of us even before this company started. That inspired me to reach for my version of a members only bomber jacket. With buttery, summery white, vegan leather sleeves and a body that is a woven rainbow tapestry. This jacket is basically a statement piece, and when making a point you don’t want anything to distract from what you’re trying to say. So I keep the rest pretty basic. A crisp white blouse, dark skinny jeans, neutral pumps, and an oversize matching white tote. All that white may look innocent, but don’t let it fool you. We decide who’s in or out.
