A few years ago I shared an office with the stylist and designer Amanda Ross Bacon aka ARossGirl. It was 2014 and I was head-over-heels for a Céline hobo, which I purchased in a number of colors. One day, as I was sporting yet another new hobo, Amanda cautioned “you don’t need them all, Preston.” Fast forward to January 2020 when, while packing my closet to move, I realized that I wear two of the bags much more often than the others — Amanda’s comment was spot-on.
So, as much as I love beige, I bought the Bottega Veneta mesh pumps solely in black because they actually look better on me. The Gucci 1955 Horsebit bag in brown is currently attached to my shoulder and even though black is great too, I don’t need it.
Let’s see how long this resolution lasts…
