ACHE Magazine: Describe your personal style.Jenny Ong: I feel like Im a bit tomboyish, a bit girly, laid-back, basic, slightly eccentric. AM: Who has influenced your style the most? How?
JO: Im not so sure if there has been one sole per-son.... I think I look to a lot of bloggers, pick out one or two things I like about each person, and try to incorpo-rate that into my style. Of course, I love Rumis (fash-iontoast.com) simple aesthetic... but on the other hand, I love how Jules (sincerelyjules.com) mixes colors and texture to create an equally amazing outfit.
AM: What is your favorite magazine? Why?
JO: Growing up, Ive always LOVED InStyle. It just ap-pealed to me because of the layout, the relevant ar-ticles, and the fashion aesthetic. Before, I was just par-tial to InStyle, but lately Ive also been enjoying Lucky, Vogue, and Nylon.AM: If you had to choose ONE must-have accessory to keep forever, what would it be, and why?
JO: Do shoes count? I am utterly obsessed with shoes. If they dont count, I guess Id have to say bracelets. I love being able to pile them all on and make my arms look entirely jeweled.AM: What do you hope to achieve in fashion?
JO: I have yet to set major goals, but I do hope to dab-ble in it long-term. I enjoy it, and fashion and styling is what really gets me going. I always think about it. So I guess that means something!
AM: What are your favorite runway shows?
JO: This is hard! Unfortunately, my memory doesnt stretch too far back at the moment, so if I had to choose just one... Id say Chloe S/S 2010. It was the first time I was in awe of the simple eye-pleasing aes-thetic of mere neutrals. Chloes muted palette was so simple but chic at the same time, and I knew I wanted to achieve this kind of simplicity in my life. Such great pieces, every single one of them. AM: Which decade would you like to live in, and why?
JO: I think living in the 70s wouldve been fun. I feel like that era was engulfed in fun colors, lots of love, and daring cuts so much freedom to really explore what you love.AM: What is your favorite thing about the place in which you live? How has it affected you?
JO: I live in Los Angeles, and I feel like its a toned-down version of New York. While I do love New York, I think LA has a different flair that I can definitely appreci-ate. In LA, no ones really judged for what they wear, so its like a warm welcome to personal style. Speaking of warm, its always sunny here in LA, and even though Id complain about never getting to wear autumn and winter wear (there is no real winter here), Ive learned to love the constant sunshine. It really puts me in a good mood!AM: Where do you see life taking you?
JO: At this point in time, Im not so sure. Im in the mid-dle of trying to decide exactly what I want to do, which, of course, is a huge, scary process. I just hope that I make the right decisions and, if I dont, that I end up happy regardless.
