Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Current location: San Francisco, CA
Birth sign: Capricorn
I started jvnne.style because: It was a creative outlet from my day job. I wanted a way to showcase my outfits that I thought were being “wasted” on my coworkers. From there, it grew into my little baby. I get to style myself on a daily basis, have my own mini photo shoots, and share this with my own community.
My 830-5 is: I work as a clerk for the Federal Courts.
My day-to-day usually looks like this: On a good day, I’ll wake up at 5:10-5:15 AM and make my way to the gym. I’ll work out until about 6:45 AM and then head back home to get ready for work. I’ll leave my house at around 7:50 AM and hop on BART to get to work downtown by 8:30 AM. During my lunch break, I’ll head out with my tripod and remote and find somewhere to take some photos for my Instagram post for the day. I get out of work at 5:00 PM and hop back on BART to get home and just relax for the night and usually watch something on Netflix. During the evening I also catch up on Instagram comments, messages, and any Jvnnestyle emails. I’ll usually get into bed by 9:30 and sleep by 10:30 PM (hopefully earlier!).
One of my goals this year: It was actually to start a blog! I launched it in January, so my newest goal is to be consistent with posting weekly on my blog. So far, so good.
Someone I look up to: In the content-creating/fashion/blogging world: Aimee Song. I feel like she is killing it right now releasing two books and just being so good at what she does. She’s definitely a pioneer in the fashion blogging world.
Three words that describe my personal style: Versatile, Edgy, and Dark
My weekend uniform: Ripped jeans, tee, leather jacket, booties
Outfit that makes me feel most confident: Any outfit with a leather jacket on top
My fashion tip for fellow petite ladies: When you cut your jeans, they should be right above your ankle bone. It’s the best length to work with both flat shoes and booties.
In addition to fashion, I express my creativity through: Doodling--I purposefully get calendars for work that are blank just so that I can doodle on them for the entire month.
My typical weekend: They usually consist of hanging out with my boyfriend or going to family parties, engagement parties, weddings, etc. I guess you just reach a certain age where all your weekends consist of some type of event.
Favorite thing about San Francisco: I definitely love how open San Francisco is; I don’t think I could have grown up anywhere but here and I’m glad I didn’t have to. San Francisco molded me into the open-minded and accepting person I am today.
One fun fact about me: I can lift about 2x my weight.
Where you’ll find me next: Probably at home watching The Office on Netflix--it’s become my latest binge series. Haha.
