It’s a Jungle Out There

11:15 AM

You can never go wrong with animals prints. Season after season animal is in. And what better way to appreciate nature and not upset PETA than to incorporate the prints and patterns of the wild into our wardrobes? Cheetah prints make us feel feminine and fierce like the feline of the jungle…or Savannah or wherever it is that cheetah’s hangout. While snake and python prints make us feel sleek and seductive like the slithery, stealthy reptiles. Zebra prints are bold, exotic and eye catching. We wear these prints not only for the appreciation of color or shape but for what the animals themselves exemplifies and we secretly wish we were like ourselves.

New York CityIf I were an animal I’d want to be a panther or any exotic big cat. I say panther because even in animal form I like to be dressed in black from head to toe. Panthers are strong, graceful and mysterious. They’re basically the animal version of what the ideal Bond girl is. And a Bond girl is the epitome of sexy, powerful, and feminine. FYI the panther is not an actual separate species of cat. A panther just refers to a large cat species that has excessive black pigment so you cant actually see their spots without close observation. There’s your daily dose of Zoboomafoo fun facts for those of you who still remember that show.

In the spirit of the of the persistent – and one of my favorite – trends I went to SoHo to see what animals the street stylers would be themselves. (more…)

In My World it’s Better to be Sorry than Safe

11:15 AM

Better safe than sorry?  I’d rather take risks and live to tell the story. Although I do feel safer knowing that Spider-Man is protecting the streets here in NYC…

SpidermanYou know when you do something stupid, intentionally, thinking it’s a brilliant idea at the time – only to turn around and realize how terrible of a decision it was. Take today for example. On the way to the gym, a good friend and I were about to go through the subway turnstile when she realized she forgot her card at home. So our brilliant minds decided to get close and go through as one person. So we swiped the card, pushed through and made it to the other side (success!)…right in front of two police officers…LOL! Turns out that’s illegal (who knew?) and it’s a $100 fine per person. Luckily they were nice enough to let us go with a warning, but in retrospect we probably should’ve checked to see that there weren’t cops around…or…errh…I mean we should’ve been good citizens and not have tried to cheat the system? Yea – that one.

This little incident had me thinking about all my style choices in the past that now, in retrospect, I realize were horribly misguided but made for great laughs.  (more…)

What’s Your Wardrobe’s Theme Song?

11:15 AM

Grand Central StationHave you ever seen that episode of Family Guy where Peter wishes he had theme music that plays accordingly with his life situations? How cool would it be to have your own theme song that followed you throughout the day and changed with your mood and surroundings? It would take a lot of the guesswork out for the people around us. That’s what we do with our daily style in a way- we send a message out to the people around us what kind of mood we’re in. But with the amount of black I wear daily people would probably assume that I’m either perpetually depressed or that I don’t like to sort laundry.

Whenever I’m getting dressed and piling on gold accessories with one of my many moto jackets, I imagine some cross between Linkin Park and Shakira playing in the background (still keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll get together for a collaboration). For the rest of the day I have some dramatic mysterious beat following me while I people watch from behind my sunglasses. (more…)

Respect the Unexpected

10:42 AM

Street Style Happy Easter to those of you who celebrated! And to those who didn’t- I hope you celebrated the revival of the spring season into your closet now that temperatures are finally warming up. After all, that is what the Easter bunny and it’s basket of eggs symbolize, the fertility and new life that come with spring. That means lighter layers, brighter colors, fresher prints and hints of our pale complexions peeking out – finally.

Fun fact: Did you know that female rabbits are able to conceive a second litter while they’re still pregnant with their first? That seems like a painful and unnecessary ability, but it’s no wonder that the rabbit and egg were the chosen signs of new life and fertility. Although its seems like poor judgement  for someone to trust  a bunny to hop around carrying a basket of fragile pastel painted eggs to hide, I appreciate unlikely pairings – in life and in wardrobe.

Designer Spotlight: Jennifer Zeuner’s Jewelry Empire

10:01 AM

Jennifer Zeuner

Celebrities1. What is the inspiration behind Jennifer Zeuner jewelry?

Jennifer Zeuner’s inspiration is the “artsy, modern and confident girl” that doesn’t need to wear a statement necklace every day.  Her new collection fuses modern and wearable seamlessly.  It incorporates a lot of angular shapes in surprising ways.  This was achieved while still maintaining the collection’s trademark simplicity.  The pieces can speak for themselves or be layered.  The same piece can reflect a different mood when layered and/or worn differently. The jewelry allows women to be creative with it. The collection is not about a single statement piece. It’s about the conscious, personalized combination of different pieces.  Ultimately, it tells a story.

2. Is Jennifer Zeuner the main designer of the line?

Yes, every piece is 100 percent designed by Jennifer. She carefully draws out the pendants and then selects everything such as  the chain, chain length, finish and  stone.  Designing is the one aspect of the business that Jennifer fully controls and doesn’t have anyone assist her with. At first, Jennifer did everything from the designing and selling to the shipping. Now her focus is mostly on designing. 

3. What do you see for the future of Jennifer Zeuner?

In the future we hope to preserve the exclusivity of our rapidly growing brand. We want to be selective about our retailers and offer a high end product to the most exclusive stores worldwide. Also, we look forward to expanding our men’s collection. A lot of men wear our pieces designed for women and they simply add an extension to the chain! Another possibility in the future is a collaboration with a style “icon.” It’s in the works already so we are keeping our fingers crossed! 

4. What is one thing that we don’t know about your brand?

Our brand’s aesthetic has evolved tremendously over time. Our first pieces, which were bought by Cameron Diaz, consisted mostly of very long beaded necklaces with wood and bone pendants. The look was very bohemian and resonated with our customers. However, after noticing an over-saturation of bohemian and beaded jewelry in the market, Jennifer chose to change the aesthetic completely.  Jennifer found inspiration in vintage Lanvin jewelry, and mid century modern furniture. The line’s symbolic and meaningful pieces were now uber-modern and simple. The  line became much more classic and sophisticated. The metamorphosis was a huge success! Fast-forward eight years, the line is sold at high end retailers worldwide and loved by stylish celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Zoe Saldana and Alessandra Ambrosio amongst many others!

“Under the Sea” with Vanessa Mooney’s Summer ’13 Collection

11:15 AM

Vanessa Mooney Just when we thought Vanessa Mooney did it all, she channeled her inner bohemian, beach bum to create the all new Summer 2013 “Under the Sea” collection. You won’t find Ariel’s trinkets here. No, this mermaid has gone rogue covered in bright golds and silvers adorned with crystals and edgy jewels.

The designer has created undeniably beautiful pieces that belong in every wardrobe. They are versatile and fun since you can easily to mix and match with items you already own.

Style Cravings of Unique New Yorkers

3:47 PM

Afaf

I woke up this morning with the sun streaming in my window reviving my inner 70s bombshell wannabe (hello Brigitte Bardot) and a little of Carmen Sandiego’s catch-me-if-you-can mystery while trying to hide under the covers for some extra sleep. What better way to satisfy my style icon craving than with a floppy hat? The hat, might I add, is the ULTIMATE understated, attention grabbing accessory. Everyone always notices the girl in the hat before anyone else in the room. A Lovely Bird floppy hat is an excellent choice for a look similar to mine or a Civil Clothing snapback for those urban glamazon days.

Back to my icon cravings. (more…)
