I Got It From My Momma: The Best Style and Beauty Advice Lucky Editors Learned From Their Mothers

"Number one: Buy for quality, not quantity. My mom was actually one of the first people to buy Narciso Rodriguez when he launched his line, and she has a great collection of beautiful jewelry that I have pilfered through the years, and [she has lots of] Chanel bags—and because she takes time to choose things she truly loves, it all still looks modern years later. Number two: Take care of your investment. I'm the kind of person who will buy something I love and wear it until it falls off my body, and she's always bemoaning the various state of my handbags or shoes. She has a key to my apartment, and sometimes I think she secretly comes over and conditions my bags for me. So take care of things that you love so you can wear them forever!" - Eva Chen, editor-in-chief
