Adrienne is a mutual friend of ours. She’s a fellow NYUer—once Renee’s roommate, now our Sunday brunchmate! She has the most amazing effortless style, coupled with a curated gallery girl outlook (“I got these pineapple earrings at a small boutique in Soho”). She’s an official Brooklyn resident now and thus, way cooler than us with her normcore Keds sneakers and enviable collection of hats. Did we also mention she has an affinity for striped sailor shirts and speaks French?
Adrienne is wearing a Mackage for Aritzia Leather Jacket, Zara Shirt, Forever 21 Jeans, Club Monaco Hat, Aritzia Wilfred Scarf, Madewell Sunglasses, Balenciaga Bag, and Keds Sneakers.
Occupation: Gallery Girl.
Location: Brooklyn in an apartment that is: always in the midst of being cleaned, decorated, or painted… a never-ending project!
Favorite restaurant: Heidi’s House for the mouthwatering date pudding.
I am visually inspired by: Mad Men, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, Call The Midwife, The Bletchley Circle, The Hour, The English Patient, The Big Sleep, The Philadelphia Story, and also Eva Chen’s effusive instagram!
Favorite childhood outfit: School uniforms. I hated them at the time, but now I miss the simplicity and rigor of it. So easy to dress in the morning.
Favorite Fashion Moments: The Alfred Hitchcock retro style in Michael Kors FW 2008, Kiera Knightley’s green dress in Atonement, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s white caped Tom Ford gown at the Oscars in 2012.
Beauty secret: Sleep A LOT. Also, Konjac sponges are amazing!
Signature nail polish: Essie Peep Show—limited edition at J. Crew and sadly, available no longer. It was the perfect Betty Draper pink.
Biggest splurge: My leather jacket. It’s so soft and just perfect.
I feel most confident in: That same leather jacket!
Can’t live without… magazines. It’s becoming quite the problem in my small apartment. I just can’t bear to throw them out!
