Be­fore you fin­ish per­fect­ing your “No Makeup” look, the Sim­ple Girl is al­ready out the door, hav­ing only put on a bit of con­cealer and a dab of lip­stick. She knows bet­ter than to need the lat­est iphone ev­ery year—as long as she can browse fb, take pho­tos, text her par­ents the plate num­ber of her cab, and lis­ten to the “Mu­sic for Malling” playlist on Spo­tify, she’s good.
