It Girl of the Month: Jen Brill (May Edition)

Who she is: Jen Brill, 31 years old, is an edgy and seemingly ageless celebrity scenester and fashion publicist. “I have an eye for art but not for creating it”

What she does: Brill spent her younger years residing in New York’s Upper East Side, continuing on to the Parsons School of Design when she reached her college years. After coming to the realization that art was not her calling, she began work as a publicist, handling photographers in the world of fashion while cultivating her own unique style. Currently dating Terry Richardson, the pair have a considerable pull in the world of fashion photography as Brill applies her editorial savvy towards her artist friends’ work.

Why we love her: Jen Brill’s mysterious style is easy to admire but hard to pull off. You could describe it as an eclectic, mixmatched combination of body-conscious, edgy, and vintage pieces, all pulled together with her staple slash of dark red lipstick. Every outfit seems veiled with a sense of mystery and hints at a dark side. 

On her style: Spanning all decades, Brill’s style embraces stretch minis, skin-baring cutouts, chunky clogs, and ladylike lace. Black is a must, and it seems like Brill’s never seen a little leather jacket that she didn’t love. She also has a penchant for the quirky, detailed in a January 2011 article snippet in Vogue Daily, where she is accompanied by a Vogue author and combs Palm Beach boutiques for animal detailed jewelry and feathers. At another event, she pulls off a glitter strewn mesh top with aplomb while successfully toeing the line between risque and completely bare.

 Oh, and did we mention she is a Chanel Brand Ambassador?? (to find out what that means click here)

Monday Inspiration

A few thoughts....funny that none of these pictures are even about clothing, more about place, ideas and settings.  Spent the weekend in Washington DC surrounded by good friends, great family and amazing food and drinks which is probably influencing the Monday inspiration today. Feeling the vast amount of books, more than we could probably ever read, the carefree feelings of summer and beach days, architecture different than the beach houses we are used to, white couches, candle lit dinners, and photographers that allow us to escape through their photos.

Hope you enjoy!

Outfit Perfection

Absolutely obsessed with pairing a tucked-in, simple tee with any type of bottoms (wide leg jbrands, dressy skirts, jean shorts, trousers etc...)  Such a simple but put together look.

Kate Moss: The Early Years

"But I just looked at her, and instantly I knew—that girl’s going to be incredibly famous. I told her that, I told her she’d get shot by Bruce Weber and do giant campaigns. And she was like, wha-a-at? I think she figured I was crazy." -Gene Lemuel on Kate Moss

Amazing article on how he spotted Kate Moss and knew that she was going to be huge on style.com here

New Obsession: The Beauty Department (by Lauren Conrad's team)

Okay, it's time to finally admit it....we love Lauren Conrad.  So many reason's have brought us to this conclusion, she is adorable, such a smart business-woman, true to herself, honest with her audience, talented at writing, designing etc.  So anywhooo, we have been keeping up with all of the new things she is doing and this project quickly caught our eyes...

Lauren just launched The Beauty Department with her makeup and hair team.  This blog focuses on hair, makeup and all things beauty related.  The layout is adorable (pastel color scheme, simple design) and the content is exactly the kind of things we want to know.  The site includes tutorials (ahem, how to get Lauren's perfect waves) what to include in your bag for different events (prom, day at the beach) and news on the latest beauty and hair trends.

We LOVE this site..and honestly we don't usually read beauty blogs.  However, this one just made it on our daily must read list.

Check it out here.

Derek Lam for Ebay

1. Such an interesting idea to do an exclusive collection for ebay.  Wonder how much ebay paid for this.  Good choice for Ebay though...attempting to bring that luxury feel back to what they do.

2.  Pretty obsessed with all of these pieces, especially the long dress.  So gorgeous, great cut and reasonable price.

3.  Wonder how long until it all sells out.
