Need to watch your bike in a theft-ridden city? No problem! Take your coffee on the curb. In Paris in July during a cold snap? Fear not! Just drop in to a Fripperie for a classic trench, size 12 ans (12 years).

Mary also understands the power in a uniform. She says she loves navy and white and wears this pants/shirt combo, or something similar, almost every day. In her words, the "sunglasses, also a non-negotiable," she picked up at a drugstore in Berlin, cost: $3. Shine on, Mary!
