The Lust List: Wool Pencil Skirts

We Bitches love certain B words—brunch and bubbly chief among them. But, there are two B words we’re not fond of: busy and basic. We’re far from basic Bitches, and we’re so over people using the term “busy.” You make time for the things you care about—and we’re all about prioritizing what matters, whether it’s mimosas with your best friends or staying up late to beat a deadline at work.

While we hate the term, there’s no denying that, while juggling demanding careers, running a multi-city business on the side, and managing travel, friends, and family commitments, we Bitches have jam-packed schedules. Of all the Bitches Who Brunch, fearless leader Becca may be the most strapped for time.

When she’s not brunching and Bitching, she’s HBIC at the country’s largest independent content marketing agency, where she often pulls 80-hour weeks. That’s passion and drive. So Becca’s fashion needs to be simple, chic, and polished; she simply doesn’t have the time to ruminate over what to wear. Or leisurely go shopping—ever.

So with her stylist’s help (read: me) Becca opts for simple, classic pieces that can work in a variety of ways and go with nearly everything. This work-to-cocktail look might be a simple black-and-white, but with a few zippers and a lot of personality her look is far from basic.

Handbag designer Blair Ritchey’s brand is all about functional luxury, and we love the rich leather and charming tassels on her clutches. Throw one in your work tote, then take it out and wear the clutch alone when you’re ready for cocktails. And, the Bitches are all about statement necklaces, which add a polished, put together feel to nearly any ensemble. That’s a statement we can get behind.
