The Preppy Obsessions of a #Jewelry Designer. #TinaTang

What inspires and fuels our obsessions?  I am not from New England, I am not conservative nor did I go to prep school, yet, I love prep school chic. 

I have been obsessed with seersucker and unisex clean lined fashion designs as of late.  Here I am wearing my J Crew Seersucker Boy Cut Blazer for the third time in one week.

I am in the office looking preppy simply for myself. I had no appointments that day.
This weekend I purchased an overnight bag that I visited three times within an hour to make sure I really wanted to buy it.  I was sold on the light recycled sail fabric, the "Made in Brooklyn" craftsmanship, and most importantly the preppy unisex aesthetic.    It's handmade by one man who owns DemploiBrooklyn.com.  He makes 6 bags a day as that's all he can manage as one person.

Isn't the overnight tote just fabulous!  A two way zipper on top makes it so practical. Photo courtesy of DemploiBrooklyn.com
I am obviously focused on the same look as I previously purchased this work bag a couple months ago, handmade by a company in Chicago called Winter-Session.com

This bag is light as a feather across my shoulders. Photo courtesy of Winter-session.com
We ladies buy the same lipstick colors no matter how much we try to venture out so why would it be different with work bags?  I feel I need a prep school intervention.  Help.
