I’ve actually never met Jenn, but I know I already love her. She’s stylish, has the ‘perfectly undone’ look mastered, and loves VINTAGE! (We all know vintage makes my heart go pitter pat) On top of that, she’s an amazing Senior Fashion Editor. She’s a lot of things I see in myself now, and a few years back, and I admire her go getter mentality at such a young age. She knows her stuff, music and fashion I might add,Â and does it well.Â Â Â I donâ€™t need to say much else, the lovely editor has said it allâ€¦.
“Once upon a time, Vintage met modern.. and their lovechild resulted in my favorite summer trend. I have always been a fan of anything vintage. On the borderline of obsession with old movies, music and furniture, I naturally found a way to incorporate it into my style. I am always sure to pair my vintage ensemble with trendy pieces to keep the look updated without straying from my personal style. This summer, I have been in love (and borderline) obsessed with pops of color pastels. Pastel pinks and seafoam have taken over my closet, jewelry armoire, and nails. I love the matte nail polish because, unlike most nail polished, this one is not shiny, but more like literal paint. Liberty of London has a great new home in Target, where I can find my favorite floral prints (like the cruiser below) at affordable prices. Being an avid fan of Vampire Weekend, my love for them elevated after seeing their amazing live performance at Coachella 2010. Aside from their beautiful music, I have always admired their album artwork of having a vintage feel. I will be paying the group another visit in September at Berkleyâ€™s Greek Theatre, and couldnâ€™t be more excited! I am 21 years old, I am a student at San Jose State University and I am the Senior Editor for Helium Magazine, a new fashion magazine and Sjhelium.com website for the Silicon Valley. People often donâ€™t think of the Silicon Valley as a fashionable region, but we are trying to change that. While home to the highest grade of technology, there are so many talented and creative people that reside here- and our goal is to bring these people together to form a community. Having just released our first issue in May, we are currently working on our second issue, and just recently launched a San Francisco branch called Sfhelium.com. I am proud and excited to continue onto bigger endeavors and working with and discovering talent and creativity both locally and beyond.â€
