Personal Style Profile – Janet

personal style profile Janet

Name: Janet

Occupation: Esthetician and The Fabulousness behind The Gardener’s Cottage

Wearing: “The dress is no name vintage that I found with it’s original tags still on. It was $4. It is my one and only favorite little black dress. The belt is old J. Crew made in england that was given to me. The shoes are Bass loafers that were $1. The straw bag is one I knocked off from Kate Spade. The sunglasses are Ralph Lauren collection, a gift from my son Alex.”

Personal Style: “I would love to think that my personal style is plain old American style – a kind of everyday, ordinary, unfussy style… a roll up your sleeves and get it done style.”

Favorite Brand or Store: “I love yard sales and thrift shops, but my favorite designer is Ralph Lauren. Ralph always gets it right.”

Favorite Fashion Trick/Secret: “My favorite fashion trick is having a very small wardrobe. When I first set out to edit my wardrobe I was afraid of what I was getting myself into, but the more time passes the less I want. The freedom from having less is exhilarating. Every piece in my wardrobe really has to count.”

    I can’t imagine a more stylish lady than Janet. She’s effortlessly glamorous and has a heart of gold. I’d love to be as disciplined with my wardrobe. x

    janet seems to knock the ball out of the park no matter what she does. whether it is what she wears, the gorgeous flowers she grows, the vegan recipes she shares, or decorating. if her style is plain old american style than i say more please!
