splurge vs. steal: denim

spring denim

I have been gushing about GAP boyfriend jeans for a while now, like we discussed here.  Needless to say, I have literally not taken them off my body ALL WINTER LONG!  It’s just too easy to grab them from my closet chair in the morning when one eye is half open and I need to throw together a comfortable and easygoing ensemble.  With spring close by (thank god!), I’m looking for my next go-to pair and after perusing the likes of net-a-porter and shopbop where designer styles average around $200, landed myself right back at GAP coveting these at $69.95 each.  In case you need help with the math here, that’s basically three pairs for the price of one!  For real.  Mega steal, no?  These will definitely become closet staples in my spring wardrobe so don’t be surprised when you spot me here wearing all three as such…

Happy shopping & weekend! xx jenny

fashion weeks a’coming

3.1 phillip limWe’re just upon fall yet about to see the spring/summer 2014 collections in fashion week which kicks off again next Thursday here in NYC.  It feels like yesterday when just a newbie at blogging, was covering my fav’s from the 2013 shows.  I’ve worked in the industry for a long time and have learned to toggle between seasons – usually strategizing on the current assortment while simultaneously planning for what’s next.  Before our mind fast-forwards toward spring/summer 2014 – let’s enjoy what we can wear now be it military, grunge, leather, an oversized coat, camouflage or the color red!  Here’s a few featured looks (and trends) from earlier this year to get you inspired!  xx jenny
