“There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer. Amelia Earhart was such a dynamic force in her industry, setting multiple aviation records in her time. So it was a no-brainer for me to team up with Harper’s Bazaar in honor of a woman who held her own with the big boys.” ~ Rihanna

Caption on verso: “Trench building at Quantico, Va., during the World War when, in order to be prepared for conditions overseas, the Marines simulated conditions on the Western Front as nearly as possible. Thousands of sea soldiers went directly from these trenches to the shell-swept trenches in France.”
Ok, ok… I seriously need this trench coat in every single color because it goes with everything and I’ve been in the mood to wear this coat with practically everything everyday (not literally but I do wish I could wear it everyday). This is why I love basics, classics… staple pieces because you can style them however you’d like with almost anything you’d like. That’s the beauty of owning key pieces in your closet. Plus, it’s the best way to style so many different looks without breaking the bank. Basic items go a long way.
