ack to school style has some enviable looks for the upcoming season. Whether you’re a college coed or a corporate colleague, this is the the ultimate shopping mission. When I was a junior sartorial sleuth, there was nothing that excited me more than gearing up for the back to school season. Now as a grownup agent, I’m inspired by back to school essentials. But just because we’re no longer in school, doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in looks reminiscent of school days. One of my favorite must-haves as a student was to carry all my school essentials in a versatile, easy-to-tote bag. How super cute is the Moschino Biker leather backpack – in a big city office or on a small town campus – it’s sure to turn heads. Another must on my back to school list is a comfy, yet chic, pair of shoes to sport with my preppy (or not) ensembles. How befitting are a pair of two-tone wingtip oxfords such as the Saint Laurent Black & White University Richelieu Spectator shoes. In honor of one of my favorite high school reads from F. Scott Fitzgerald, I so want the Kate Spade “The Great Gatsby” spiral notebook, $14. It’s the perfect tool for top secret notes. And, if it weren’t for an art class that broke up my day between physics and English lit, how would I have made it throughout the day? Rather than watercolors on a canvas, how about a color collection for the face? On my radar is the Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Case, a 12-piece palette for eyes, cheeks, and lips.
