metallic home pic

I have no idea where i am going in this outfit but I hope it’s somewhere fabulous, and hope that time is sometime soon.  I’ve been obsessed with it since the try on session and instagram snap over a month ago.  Spring is a buzzing here in NYC and as far as seasonal trends go, metallic is high up on the list of must-haves. Who says sparkle is just for the holiday season?  Rules are made to be broken, clearly.  The best part about this ensemble is not the mere fact that I was able to find a coordinated top and bottom in the coveted silver metallic color.  It’s that both of these pieces from H&M, together were $65!!!  I swear this may be the best investment I’ve ever made.  I appreciate a luxury item no less then the next person, but when finding exactly what I want for a steal – you can sign me right up, STAT!  The weather is warming here in NYC and this head-to-toe look is begging for a night out, along with other metallics I found on the interweb like this rose gold option from Topshop, an effortless high-low maxi dress from Alice & Olivia, this wear-with-everything cami by Parker, and this green (be still my heart) cropped, embroidered beaut from Zara.

walking on the wild side

17 Feb

649765_mainIt’s not uncommon to find a clothing item you love, but veto purchasing it because you’re stumped on what to wear it with.  We tend to get stuck inside our style boxes, making it impossible to envision anything outside of them.  And then we wind up wearing the black version, envious of the person who had the courage to take a chance on the leopard print.  Playing it safe can land you in a fashion funk, wondering why there is no excitement in your wardrobe.  And most of the time, the riskier version works just as well as the basic.  I recommend adding a few less predictable items to your closet for days when you want to embrace your daring side.  This River Island sweatshirt can be found in solid colors anywhere and it’d probably get way more mileage if you went that route, but today why not give the animal print a-go. Sometimes we all need to take a walk on the wild side.  Happy Monday!  xx

spring things

10 Feb

spring edit

I was debating a “no-shop february” challenge with intentions of inviting you to participate because I always like to check myself when behaviors become perpetual – even if they are benign.  Taking a break from something you love puts things into perspective and raises awareness to your relationship with that habit.  However while thinking it through (and virtual window shopping in the meantime), I’ve decided to hold off.  Spring product is trickling in and I was already wait-listed for two of my “must-have” finds!  In hindsight I should have proposed this challenge for January, right after the holiday shopping binge.  Lesson learned!  So instead of “no shop february”, it’s turned into, “get ’em while their hot”.  Although shelved for today, we’ll explore this challenge later.  For now, here’s what’s topping my spring list.  Happy, happy Monday!  xx jenny

a good sport

14 Jan

fashion sneakers - 4 (2)In the spirit of taking more style risks in 2014 like said here, I’ve been embracing my sportier side.  I found these converse star player leather sneakers while researching for a client, and like any typical shopping-obsessed stylist, bought one pair for the photoshoot and one pair for myself.  Lately instead of grabbing booties, I’ve been inserting these high tops into my look and welcoming the fresh change.  And you can’t beat the comfort if you’re an urbanite whose feet are a means of transportation.  While sneakers have been a streetstyle fashion choice for decades, mine have mostly been reserved for exercise.  Until now.  This year I’m upping my shoe game and plan on being a really good sport about it!  How will you step outside of your style comfort zone in 2014?  Would love to hear your stories!  xx jenny

mad for plaid

2 Dec

IMG_8206My obsession with plaid scarves (scarves in general, really) is an ever growing phenomenon which likely started in my early teens.  As a gal who doesn’t wear much color or print, this is a pattern that has always won my heart.  It brings to light different sides of my style personality – sometimes preppy, other days british punk, more often boho, and on occasion urban hipster.  Accessories have a tremendous amount of styling power and small tweaks could completely change your overall look.  This Zara scarf, which can be styled in a myriad of ways, is available online, but I recommend scooping it up quick due to its popularity (it was recently just sold out).  If you don’t fancy this one, much more awesomeness here.

shiny happy people

20 Nov

shiny happy peopleI’m a total sucker for anything with holiday bling, but there’s only a small window of “appropriate” time to wear it (think now through January).  With thanksgiving around the corner – peak season for glitz and glam is about to pop off.  I can already hear the jingle bells jingling (literally).  Here are a few cute and affordable sparkly options, each under $100!  No need to break the bank on seasonal styles with little wearability.  One or two items in your closet will suffice to pull a holiday party ensemble together in a snap.

Style tip:  Save your pennies for the classics!

swap meet

11 Nov

jennyRemember this post when I told you about this coat? Well – it came, but quickly so it went. After arriving by way of London via farfetch.com, they accidentally had sent the wrong size! It was a disappointing moment in the Greenstein-Weisberger household since it had traveled across the Atlantic and was unavailable in the States. While waiting to exchange it for the right size and mulling over if I should just return it all together, I happened upon this. Cheaper than the Malene Birger and similar in silhouette, it felt like a sign to let the other one go. So I did, and had a few extra bucks in my pocket, to boot. Here is the coat from Zara that I swapped it for, paired with the boyfriend jeans I wear endlessly and topped off with some bling.

SHOP IT: coat: Zara, top: old (similar), jeans: GAP, shoes: J.Crew (similar), bag: Louis Vuitton, sunnies: Ray-Ban (similar), ring: old (similar), bangles: vintage & from india (similar), rhinestone bracelet: j.crew (similar), cuff: old (similar)

throwin’ shade

5 Nov

gray is the new black

Despite my efforts to bring color into my wardrobe, I consistently defer to black.  It’s edgy, flexible and works with my skin regardless of season.  I leave color for my lip, which is usually a bold red.  When I learned that gray was trending for fall like said here, it provided change, but not a huge departure from my style uniform.  I scooped up these trousers which reminded me of the ones from this post and figured I could easily kill two birds with one stone.  I added in some old stand-bys to complete the look.

shop it:  sweater: old (similar), trousers: Zara, moto jacket: Sfera (similar), shoe: J.Crew, sunnies: Von Zipper, clutch: vintage (similar), lip: Makeup Forever in N45

style, naturally – part II

21 Oct

weekend wear_final_1Happy Monday!  Remember this post discussing effortless style?  Nothing beats it – wearing easy and laid back ensembles that you feel confident in.  Dina and I have made it a ritual to hit up the farmers market on Saturday mornings.  We go pretty early to avoid crowds and the last thing I want at that hour is to a) think and b) be uncomfortable.  But I also don’t want to look like I rolled out of bed.  You feel me, right?  These “sexy boyfriend jeans” from GAP are perfect for these days.  Relaxed and roomy, yet (like their name says), “sexy”.  Pairing them with my go-to, (haven’t taken them off my feet) Zara booties and moto jacket also helps alleviate the shlump-factor.  I feel like I’m in my pajamas without actually being in my pajamas.  There are ways, my friends.  There are ways.  Comfortable + stylish = mission accomplished.

SHOP THIS OUTFIT:  moto jacket: Sfera (similar), shirt: Zara, jeans: GAP, shoes: Zara, bag: Louis Vuitton (similar), sunnies: Ray Ban

“throw a scarf on it”

9 Oct

final photoIn a Portlandia episode spoofing me – we’d be “throwing a scarf on it” rather than “putting a bird on it” (this is a must view!).  Everyone’s got their thing and scarves are mine.  Most days if you don’t see it draped around my neck – you’ll find one in my handbag ready to pull out at a moment’s notice.  They’re one of my all time favorite accessories and with the recent hint of cooler temperatures, I can barely contain my excitement.  Cozier fabrics, rich colors and fresh prints are on the horizon.  In the photo above I wear a 70’s vintage hand-me-down via mama Greenstein, but I recently scooped up this one from Zara as a trendy alternative.  Scarves fulfill both fashion and function objectives adding personality to your overall look while keeping you warm and toasty.  If you live in warmer climate, opt for light fabrics like cotton or silk.  I’m sure you already have one (or many!) from last season, but in case you need a refresher…
