We’re thrilled to have introduced Johnny Was to the Gwynnie Bee collection! The brainchild of Eli Levite, Johnny Was has been offering gorgeous luxe bohemian style since the brand was launched in 1987. Happy, bright colors and unique prints that lend themselves to layering — Johnny Was is just what we needed to welcome spring. We got the scoop from the Johnny Was team.
Spring at last! With the arrival of the first official day of spring we turn to Austin’s South by Southwest festival for some style inspiration to kick off the season. SXSW draws creative minds from the tech, film, and music industries — it’s no surprise that the style scene is an eclectic one. Though styles ranged from boho to vintage, our favorite looks all seemed to embody the same carefree sprit. And while some festival fashion can seem a little too out-there for the everyday, we found that these great styles easily translate to the real world.
Christine wears the NYDJ Tanya Boyfriend in Manchester, sizes 10-24W
“Normally I wear a size 12-14 jean and they are typically loose fitting, so trying on anything tight was quite a departure for me. I did really like the look of the Tanya Jean, even thought I felt like it was much tighter than what I would normally wear. I had on the size 10…to be honest, if I were buying them, I would probably get a size 12 so that I would be sure I would actually leave the house in them. Everyone else thought they looked great, but I think I need one size up to feel really comfortable in my skin. I paired them with heels, which was fun for the photoshoot…but I’d normally wear them with cute flat sneakers (like a pair of low Chucks in a fun color). It was a bit tight in the tummy in a size 10, but I think it’s part of their technology – it certainly shaved a few inches off my waist line, but it felt a bit like wearing a denim pair of Spanx. I think that’s a good thing? I am 5’8″ so I didn’t roll them up much at all. I would say they fit pretty true to size.”
