Getting old or merely refining taste?

I am having the worst time resisting the khaki trench coat at GAP that Sarah Jessica Parker has been wearing in those tv spots lately. It's currently only $70, and I have wanted a trench coat for months and years now. Sure, it isn't the burberry trench that sets my heart afire, but I can actually afford this GAP coat. To buy or not to buy?
There's also a safari jacket in the same line that I covet. It would look hot with a red-and-white vintage skirt I own.
Hmmm. I am a bit disturbed that I am liking so much of GAP's spring line. Have they actually become fashionable again or am I merely trying to imitate the fearless fashionista SJP? Or have I - curse it all! - become old? Most of the junior clothing stores I haunted quite contently just a few years ago, like RAVE and Forever 21, disappoint me with low quality. Have I reached a point where I can no longer be satisfied with $9.99 polyester tops?

It would appear that when I return from London I will have a major closet purge and restocking to do.
Help me, please.

Name for me the five items you consider essential to a twenty-one year old's closet.
Even if you don't consider yourself fashion-forward and wear only Uggs, velour-sweatpants, polyester love-handle exposing halter tops, ruffles or natural-fit jeans, please participate.
