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.”
