Thank you Angie for giving me a new appreciation of modern classic. I always had a slightly negative reaction to that term, but your post is helping me see it in a new light! But I still do truly think that I like classic with a twist, even though you mentioned in your post that everyone claims they want to add a "twist or edge" to classic. Here's my modern classic outfit for today. I think if I was "pure" classic, I would have worn it with a solid colored pencil skirt, like my red pencil skirt. But I picked a crazy colored and patterned Anthro one made out of a sweatshirt type fabric. So yes, I am unapologetically classic with a twist!
