*Here at Shop It To Me, we want to introduce you to one of our favorite stylistas, Jenn Falik! Meet her, know her, and listen to her advice! You won’t take a wrong step if you’re following her lead. *
Q: You’re such a fashion gal — give us a behind-the-scenes understanding of you! What 4 items do you not leave home without (what’s in your handbag each and every day)?
A: *My must-have’s:
Stila Lip Glaze in Grapefruit– the most perfect, glossy sheer pink. I love the light, fresh scent and it is just sticky enough to last but not so sticky as to be uncomfortable.
Blackberry Bold– I am obsessive about checking my email and recently became totally addicted to Twitter. I take pics of my favorite fashion and beauty finds and tweet about them.
Darphin Aromatic Renewing Balm– The smell is delicious, and when I look down before a meeting and notice I forgot to get a manicure, I massage it into my cuticles for an instant one! Then, when I find myself on a long flight, I already have it packed and can pull it out to slather on my face so I arrive at my destination glowing.
Smythson of Bond Street Note Pad– I think that these are so chic, they make me WANT to take notes when I have ideas which is a good thing because if I didn’t, I would forget everything! I always have it out when reading magazines because I take notes on the items I find and fall in love with and want to learn more about.
Q: *What’s your favorite brand right now this Fall?*
A: *Oh my, where do I begin? For shoes, I am obsessed with Pour la Victoire. Jeans- all about J Brand. Loving everything from Elizabeth & James and for accessories, Dannijo makes the most amazing statement pieces that add a perfect amount of edge to the girly pieces in my closet.*
Q: When it comes to Shop It To Me, what’s your favorite feature?
*A: *My favorite feature is the Sale Spot– even though I get my salemails daily, there are some weeks that are so crazy busy I don’t get to look at them as closely as I would like. So, I make a point to check out the Sale Spot every Friday just to be sure I haven’t missed anything!
Q: Whose celebrity style do you most admire?
A: *I really love how Nicole Richie dresses- always looks effortless, eclectic and perfectly accessorized. And lately I have been very into Diane Kruger’s style- very polished and feminine but kind of edgy at the same time.*
Q: And finally — being a New Yorker, what are your favorite restaurants in the Big Apple?
*A: *Food- my second favorite topic after fashion! Mara’s Homemade (www.marashomemade.com) is THE BEST- a hidden gem where my husband and I go for delicious barbeque, yummy oysters, amazing crawfish and, my Achilles heel- Mara’s insanely good bread pudding. I also love the new Standard Grill- great burgers and people watching- and for a special occasion, Mas (farmhouse) in the West Village. Oh- and if you are a pizza lover, Vezzo can’t be beat.
