Fashion & Style: Jennifer
Hi, my name is Jennifer. I go by Furbananas on the web which is a conjunction of my name and an adjective I use to describe myself. Fur, being short for Jennifer and Bananas because I have a very vibrant and bubbly personality. I'm from New Orleans originally but grew up in Atlanta, which is my home. I currently live in D.C. and work in retail management.
How would you describe your sense of style?
At the moment I'm going through a "I don't know how I want to dress" phase. I feel like the best style is having one that's unique and all your own that you can be identified as and I'm still figuring that out at the moment. As for now I would describe my style as tomboy chic. As much as I love looking girly in bright colors and skirts, you can usually catch my on boyfriend jeans or over-sized shirts paired with high heels.
Where do you get your inspiration for each look?
Fashion bloggers such as Karla from "Karla's Closet" and Solange Knowles, my style icon. Also, the weather and my mood plays a big factor in each look I put together.
What’s your ‘Go-To’ outfit for when you need to get ready in a hurry?
Boyfriend jeans and a T-shirt. Never fails me.
Of course my boyfriend jeans, a men's jean jacket from H&M and one of the many pencil skirts own. Simple things because a good wardrobe is based or should be built around the basic essentials.
What are some of your favorite shops or websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
Some favorites are Asos.com, Urbanog.com for cute inexpensive shoes, and Zara.com.
As I stated before, it's best to build your wardrobe starting with the basic essentials. A pair of good jeans, good cotton t-shirts, a great pair of trousers, a pump or sandal heel, and a good fitting pencil skirt. You'll see with those basics it'll become especially easy to start putting great looks together. From there you can start to add specific pieces that make the looks YOU.
