One Woman, One Style: Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam

FLAIR_Jordan_Reid3

As you may remember, I’ve been working as a contributing editor to Flair Magazine, interviewing fabulous women in NYC that have amazing style in both their wardrobe and in their home.

When I styled Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam for a TJMaxx video, I knew she would be perfect for this feature. Her new home just north of the city reflected her great taste as much as I was impressed by her own closet. She kindly invited me up to spend an afternoon with her, as she chased after her son.

Check out my interview here.

Black, White and Green All Over

I’ve been pulling this same pom pom necklace by E.Kammeyer for shoots over and over since she first debuted it earlier this year. I used other pieces of hers, but I think I subconsciously kept this one aside for myself. On the last shoot I borrowed it for, I broke down and ended up buying it from the designer. I then wore it to an event last night and go figure, the designer was there wearing one too. I think we put the peer pressure on and soon everyone in the room was asking where they could get one.

You can get one here in case you can’t resist too.

I went to Roslindale, just outside of Boston, last week while both visiting family and prepping for a shoot, and was pleasantly surprised by the great shops, like Minerva’s Owl, and cafes, like Birch Street Bistro, in that area. Who knew?

One of my favorite spots to visit there (and actually the only one I used to stop by) is Joanne Rossman, Purveyor of the Unnecessary and Irresistible. The store was about to close for the day, but luckily opened its doors for me in time for me to spot this amazing zebra head, similar to the one I’ve been coveting while interviewing Day Kornbluth.

Last but not least is my new favorite blog that combines not just my love for fashion, but my passion for health and the environment too.

I try to do little green things in my daily life like eat vegetarian and local, reuse bags, do yoga, walk a ton, grow my own herbs and even drink green juices nearly every day of the week if I can, but this fellow stylist and green-lover is quite impressive on her mission to make the world a greener place. Check out her informative and inspiring blog, Going Greenster, to see how you can make a difference in your own daily life, including the juicer she uses to make those green juices I spend a fortune on every week!


Instant Pro

I’ve loved my lovely lifestyle blogger friend Risa of Really Risa‘s photos ever since I first discovered her site. She admitted to me that she didn’t know much too much about photography, but she recently got a 40mm pancake lens for her camera and it makes her look like a pro. Well, I trust her taste, so I had to try it for myself.

Check it out some of the photos I took while wandering around the beautiful and famous Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn for the first time over the weekend.

STYLIST TIP: A good leather jacket is worth the investment and will last for years. It can instantly make any outfit cooler (while keeping you warmer as we transition seasons), including a cocktail dress in the evening. My favorites always come from Zara, as the prices are reasonable and the quality is stellar. 


Spring In Bloom

Yesterday was the first day that it finally felt like spring here in Brooklyn. The trees are starting to bud and the tulips beginning to bloom. People in my neighborhood were peeling off layers and some were even prematurely breaking out the tank tops and sandals. I decided to transition a bit more slowly.

After running some errands like stopping by one of my favorite shops, By Brooklyn to drop off my designs, my good friend Mariel of the DIY/lifestyle blog, “So What’s Bloomin’?” (no pun intended there…maybe in the title of this post) came by to pick up a piece of furniture that doesn’t quite fit in our new place. It was gorgeous out so while the guys were doing the heavy lifting, we decided to play around with the camera and enjoy the weather.

3 Things You Should Follow [Shameless Plugs]

1. You should follow the site BKSTYLED. springfashion_spread91

I’m a little biased not only because I live in and love all things Brooklyn and because they featured my jewelry all over their spring fashion shoot like this etc… “Gatsby” necklace made from vintage chandelier pieces (sold at Minerva’s Owl, price upon request at info@etcmodernvintage.com), but this new site it totally on it. There’s so much creativity flowing in this borough and you should check out what’s going on here before it hits the rest of the world soon.

 

2. You should follow @WearDidYouGo on Twitter and Instagram.photo(20)

Mariel of the blog SoWhatsBloomin’ and I have been sending each other pictures of random items of wardrobe that we find lying around while we’re walking around the city or our travels for over a year now, along with funny made up stories of how they got left there.

Eventually this got out of hand and we came up with the Twitter/Instagram account of @weardidyougo so we could share these hilarious clothing missed connections with all of you. Now you can follow these sartorial stories and even come up with your own. Email us at weardidyougo@gmail.com with your own and we will tag you in a post if we like it!

 

3. You should follow my closet on POSHMARK.

If you’re not already on Poshmark, you’re going to want to be. I’m selling an overflowing IKEA bag worth of my designer and vintage wardrobe and at ridiculously low prices. Be sure to stay tuned for when I host my own Posh Party on May 2nd!

Be one of the first to join and use the code HXEZC to get $5 credit!

 

It feels difficult to post about fashion after the tragedy in Boston yesterday, but I suppose the show must go on. As you may know, while my home is in NYC, a piece of my heart is in Boston, as I have many clients there as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in one of the greatest cities in the world during this time. You’re a tough city Boston, please stay safe.
