Independently owned and stocked with earth-friendly one of a kind pieces, Kaight is the shop to stop in on Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue. Go ahead, decorate yourself. Stellar weekend find: Kris Nations’ heart and star earrings. At $35 a pair and delivered as a message in a bottle, they are a decorative delight. p.s. I have them on right now.
Spring is here, but it is still as cold as ice cream in New York City. Nonetheless, I’ve got my eye on a frock to wear as soon as the sun shines.
Yuna Yang always creates feminine pieces, this time giving us the Talis dotted lace dress in white. There’s a real kick of fun to this frock. Pair it with a blood orange and bourbon fizz, sit down and soak in the weekend.
Make it at home with:
1/2 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice (strain the pulp if you wish)
3-5 tablespoons bourbon (depends on how boozy you want it)
2-3 drops of Angostura bitters
Splash of sparkling water
Orange slices & sprigs of mint, for garnish

It takes time before setting a home style in stone. Fresh accents can make a big difference without having to buy new furniture. Kelly Wearstler’s creations are worthy of a look. A few of my favorites (if only for inspiration!) include a fractured marble box for a desk or to hold jewelry, this incredible bronzed hand, and a feminine, bejeweled bottle opener.
THE BEAUTY IN YOU IS YOUR SPIRIT

Let’s toast to a week gone well and to a weekend of living in the moment.
Pour yourself a glass of rose champagne and put on a frock you feel comfortable in…it may increase your confidence, tenfold. (For more on that fun notion, check out this article). Like I said, live in the moment, it’s all we really have…
And: listen to yourself. When you do your spirit shines free.

Why not try something different? This blog was birthed into existence from that mantra. Today marks the first in a series of JBD posts focused on something different. Mr. Bruce Mozert felt the wind of possibility when he arrived in 1938 to Silver Springs, Florida. Photographing women in the clear waters came from a clarity of his imagination.

Singular sensations, kids. Singular sensations. What do you want to blossom over the next couple of weeks? Invest in yourself and you’ll be able to invest in others. The dance of life depends upon it.

As the East Coast weather fluctuates, so does my mood. Today is all about unleashing Spring, hearing the birds sing and soaking in a citrus scent of style.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Aside from having the (obvious) nickname, Jenny, I have another, called Windy. My mom coined the name for me ages ago, saying I earned it from having a whimsical sense of being, always moving in the wind of life. So be it + I embrace it. We all need a bit of wind-like nature from time to time. Let yourself get lost to be free. Allow your gypsy soul to explore. Happy Tuesday, kids.
