A classic designer handbag, the perfect pump, diamonds…

Are these the fashion signs of adulthood?

I’ve been thinking about this more and more lately. I started to feel the pressure with all of those 30 Things Every Woman Should Have by Age 30 lists popping up and then the other week, when Brie bought her Saint Laurent bracelet (a nice piece of jewelry, a very adult move) it was back on my mind. I’m 26, I think I’m pretty adult, but my wardrobe doesn’t always reflect that. I don’t have that classic forever chic handbag (hello to you, Céline hobo in navy) or a piece of fine jewelry.

Was there a purchase for you that made you feel super adult (no, not a house or a dog…)? When did you make that big girl purchase?
