This week, we’re following the editor behind Styleite.com, Verena von Pfetten.
Twitter Name: @Styleite
Real Name: Verena von Pfetten
Occupation: Editor of Styleite.com
Favorite Designer(s): Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Chanel, J.Crew, J Brand, Chloé, and Diane von Furstenberg. Though, to be honest, a huge amount of my closet could be found at Urban Outfitters. Shh.
Next Purchase: The perfect men’s-style camel overcoat. It’s so far eluded me, but I will find it!
Song/Album on Repeat Right Now: Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now,” and I don’t care who knows it!
TV/Movie Guilty Pleasure: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They’ve put every other iteration of this franchise to shame. Also, the cast of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge on MTV is closer to me than family.
Style Crush: Chloë Sevigny and Kirsten Dunst. But I’m recently obsessed with Emma Watson.
Your Style in 3 Words or Less: Tomboy chic.
When you’re not tweeting you’re: Writing, reading, or otherwise interacting with the internet. And when I’m not doing that, I’m watching reruns of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in between creating imaginary online shopping carts. They’re really cathartic.
About Verena’s Picks:
I’ve been in the market for a small, bright evening bag and this one is perfect, without breaking the bank. The gold hardware means you can wear it with jeans and a T-shirt and still look at least somewhat fancy. Marc by Marc Jacobs - Ozzie Square Perfect Purse
This may or may not be the perfect winter coat. It’s warm, goes with everything, and has that army chic thing everyone is so in love with right now. Also, it’s under $200. Score! We the Free - Faux Fur Trimmed Parka
I may not wear heels, but there’s nothing I love more than a bright, eye-catching dress. And while I’d wear this one with tights and my aforementioned Jeffrey Campbell boots, pairing this with a great pair of heels would make for a seriously eye-catching party ensemble. Joie - Topekette Dress with Shoulder Pads
