Bon Goût: Jennifer

Jennifer, tomboyish sexy, effortlessly cool and she knows how to put simplicity and class into practice with very low maintenance.


1. How important is style/appearance to you?
Important. but not in the sense of looking or wearing what I “should” be wearing, but in the interest of looking and feeling like the best version of myself, and comfortable. I think clothes can be a really fun way to reflect who you are. I don’t think clothes should craft who you are.

2. How would you describe your style?
Urban simplicity? Haha. Not sure how to label it really.. I wear a lot of solid colors, with clean, simple lines and detailing; but I like to add a funky element in when I can.. a lush scarf, snazzy boots, whatever strikes my fancy at the time.

3. What’s your favourite item?
I go through phases. right now my over-the-knee flat leather boots. I love them..I bought them on a whim in Miami a few years back, when I didn’t think I’d ever even get the weather to wear them. I hung on to them for a couple years, and poof I’m in NYC, and they’ve lent me through fall and into winter already.


4. What’s your favourite cosmetic product?
Rosebud lip salve. I don’t wear much else.. Usually just lip balm and I’ll coat on the mascara if I’m heading out. I like “bad gal mascara” at the moment.

5. How would you describe your ideal man?
Quick witted with a boyish smile. Loyal. A good ear for good music. Easygoing is a trait I’ve come to appreciate recently.

6. Who is a style inspiration to you? And why?
I think Ashley Olsen has a really smart chic style. Without trying hard. And Isabelle McNally and Erin Wasson, who are a bit scattered and more laid back; which is more my speed. But moreso than the celebs, I love a lot of the personal fashion bloggers too; I admire their imagination, and what they can do on a budget.


Jennifer is a web producer for a daily newspaper based in Manhattan, NYC. Having lived in Florida, Miami and Atlanta, she now spreads love the Brooklyn way.

  1. Njoyed.
    And double yes on Ashley Olsen. Surprised me how ill her style is… not everyone with a budget knows how to spend it.

    O, I hope you do more of these profiles.

  2. i heart u both!

    ive admired jen’s style over the yrs….she’s always been original and very true to self with her fashions.

  3. Gouty arthritis surely is a horrible health problem, my grandfather is suffering from the problem for a very long time already. It puts a lot of stress on me, observing a much loved relative experience sudden attacks frequently. Sticking to a proper diet regime made for prevention and making use of the most effective treatment plans is vital. Personally, I would highly recommend anybody who is already noticing the first signs of joint pain to by all means be alarmed. Better seek the advice of a medical professional as soon as you can and alter your diet regime to prevent the outbreak of the disease. It is anything but fun! Try to look for sensible therapies and stay away from food with large quantities of purine in it, beer and so forth for prevention!
