Not-so-basic basics

Who wants blah-blah boring basics? Not me! Give me unexpected details. Give me subtle attention-grabbers. Give me JNBY. With modern staples (and an eco-friendly slant), their designs each have their own twist.

I should know. I got up close and personal with plenty of them. Like the butter-soft leather jacket with bleached details.

And the sweater with swiss cheese holes.

JNBY’s palettes are often muted, so the looks are all about textures and layers.

Or, in the case of the skirt I opted for, built-in, rough-edged layers. As soon as the holiday parties start I’m going to be wearing this baby all over town. Nothing blah-blah boring about that.

Thank you JNBY for the mini shopping spree!

P.S. We pick a winner on Tuesday, so enter the Summer Ellis Eternite necklace giveaway before it’s too late!

    Love the sweater with “the swiss cheese holes.” Love your description even more! Haha. I’ve heard so much about JNBY, but haven’t yet made a trip down to check out their store. I definately should!
