Also, check out this great slideshow from Time Style of Jenn’s Top 9 fashion moments from Season 2 of “Girls” (plastic dress included). Huffington Post helps you determine which “Girl” you are with a handy quiz, and College Fashion teaches you how to dress like your spirit girl. For slightly more sophisticated/authoritative reads on “Girls” fashion, try this insightful New York Times article, or this interview with Jenn from The Daily Beast, in which she talks specific shops for each of the characters. Naturally, Jenn’s talents extend beyond costume design – check out the recent collaboration she did with American Eagle for their line of intimates, called Aerie!
Headlines & tidbits from the past week…
*Diddy’s on Downto(w)n?
*Everlane has added some beautiful, muted new colors to their line of perfect t’s. (Seriously, perfect. I own four & am considering more…)
*Going to a summer wedding? Refinery29 gives you style tips!
*An interesting meditation at Gen Y’s future migration to the suburbs, courtesy of Apartment Therapy.

*While I am, obviously, thrilled to be celebrating our one year anniversary upstate this weekend, I am missing out on some AMAZING SALES happening in the city this weekend! If you are lucky enough to be in town, go to Kaight Boutique on Saturday for 15% off new arrivals, or to the Feral Childe Studio Sale on Sunday. (If, like me, you can’t make it to these awesome events this weekend, you can still catch the fiercely fashionable ladies of Feral Childe hosting a trunk sale at Brooklyn’s Sword-Smith on Friday 5/31!)
*Are you tired of the punk-influenced evening wear vibe yet? No? Click here.
*No lie, I ran into this fashion icon at a movie last weekend in the ‘burg. She’s such a classy lassie.
Happy Anniversary, my love.
