SO: Tell us a little about yourself – how did you get into blogging?
Jennie: I started documenting my outfits after I made the decision to experiment with clothes and my personal style more. I knew if I was putting outfits online for everyone to see, that they would expect to see more. It was a great way to remain driven to keep it up.
SO: What is one of the most memorable experiences you have had because of your blog?
Jennie: Meeting my wonderful friends is something I will always value as a result of my blog. The memories I have made with those girls will last forever. Sounds cheesy, but it's true.
SO: What are your style words to live by?
Jennie: Go with what makes you feel good.
SO: How would you describe the style scene in San Francisco?
Jennie: San Francisco is all over the place in terms of style. It’s less common to see people dressed up and polished, but there is still a really fantastic easygoing style here. We have the best advantage for layering in our climate - and layering always makes getting dressed more fun and interesting..
SO: What is the most treasured item in your closet?
Jennie: While my Alexander Wang Rocco is my most treasured purchase (I waited a year before biting the bullet), my rings are near and dear to me. One is from my boyfriend on our first anniversary and one my grandfather gave to my grandmother when they first started dating.
SO: Is there something you think every woman should have in her wardrobe?
Jennie: Every woman needs a blazer. It’s a staple item that goes with anything.
SO: Are you more of a shoe girl, or more of a handbag girl?
Jennie: Shoes. Absolutely. I’m too lazy to switch out handbags.
SO: We love your blog and read it on a regular basis. Which blogs do you read the most?
Jennie: My Bloglovin feed is filled to the brim. I check it several times a day. I love reading my friends’ blogs, and I seriously feel like Who What Wear is a daily treat.
SO: Tell us something about yourself that we might not expect.
Jennie: I have a Masters in Museum Studies, and I have a 6th lumbar in my spine. (If only it made me taller…).
