Tick off another mark on the List of Inevitability: Now I am obsessed with Jenni Kayne.
If you’re not familiar, Jenni Kayne is a high-end lifestyle brand that epitomizes effortless, natural California style.
From home goods to clothing to accessories, everything is Just So.
Just So Chic.
Just So Perfect.
Just So Simple.
Just So Stylish.
And Just So Expensive.
Cost was a factor that kept me away from Jenni Kayne until now. While I loved the curated offerings, even I could not justify a t-shirt for $125 (although I really, really like it).
And then things changed, like they often do.
For one, I received this amazing gift – really the most spectacular gift from the most spectacular person, and I will never discuss it here – that had so many beautiful Jenni Kayne items, including a bag, a pair of shearling slippers, a candle, and a fancy match striker among other luxuries.
I was so enamored of This Gift, which was Just So tasteful and lovely, and essentially I wanted to move into Jenni Kayne Headquarters and live out the rest of my days there.
Also, speaking of end of days, I have been vacillating between Why Bother and YOLO modes recently, and YOLO won out when it came to Jenni Kayne.
As I type, I am happily awaiting the arrival of my first real Jenni Kayne order, complete with moccasins, sandals and an oversized cashmere sweater.
I still have my eye on a lot more, and Dreaming of a Montecito Lifestyle a la Jenni is rapidly becoming a full-time occupation.
