TRAVEL & STYLE: Personalize your Vacation with Kleenex Design

As you have probably come to find out, I love to travel and I do it often.  I travel for vacation and for work, and the most important thing for me is expressing my personal style even when I am on the go.  This Sunday, I will be heading to LA to sell at the Rosebowl Flea Market with my friend Allyson like we did last year with her friend Sonja, from Sunday Girl Finds, and I must say traveling down the coast and staying on top of your style is harder than you might think.  But with the flux in temperatures from NorCal to SoCal, and the height of allergy season wreaking havoc on my sinuses, I have found a no brainer solution to keep myself together during my travels.

Kleenex has been a go-to product for stylish people everywhere for over 90 years (happy anniversary Kleenex!) and they are bringing even more style to our lives with their brand spanking new Kleenex Style Studio.  They have a whole new line of pocket sized tissue packs that are perfect for when I am on the go, and they fit just about anywhere.  Not to mention, the packs come in a variety of prints and styles, so you can match them to your outfits or your mood!

You can bet I will be taking my Kleenex packs to LA this weekend, I absolutely adore this city print on the packaging.

 

I also have made a habit of cleaning my bathroom from top to bottom before I take a trip.  I always put a Kleenex tissue box in my bathroom so when I come home from a long day of traveling, I see a perfectly cleaned and arranged bathroom and I instantly relax.  You may think it’s weird, but just trust me and give it a try.  There are so many great designs, that I’m sure you will find one that suits your personality.  I found this awesome geo tribal/Moroccan design, which I always gravitate towards.  The bright colors are so perfect and they express my unique style.

Kleenex just partnered with Isaac Mizrahi (one of my favorite fashion personalities and designers) to create four designs which are not only inspirational, but will most certainly help you elevate and express your personal style while keeping you on trend. Check out the Kleenex style finder, take the quiz and watch videos featuring Isaac Mizrahi where he provides his latest style advice and shares his own experience as a design leader for more than two decades.  I just love the Andy Warhol and pop art inspired designs, and I most definitely love the oval box!  How chic?!  No wonder Kleenex has been exhibited in the MoMA twice!  Check out my Pinterest to see more of my favorite designs and Kleenex trivia!

SHOPPING & UPDATE: New Items In Stock + Customer Photos!

I would be remiss if I said I didn’t feel guilty for not posting more and updating you all on the great and fabulous things happening in the land of JJV, not to mention in my life personally.

So much has happened since my post about participating in Black Market SF, that I guess the only thing to do would be to start from there.

Black Market SF is probably one of my favorite new pop up markets in San Francisco.  It’s a night market with a super chill and cool vibe and it is RSVP only.  Yes, honey.  So if you want to make sure you get in, you need to hop to it and get a ticket.  Be sure to visit their website and tell them Jillian sent you.  The next event is April 19th (I won’t be selling this month due to some awesome surprises coming up), and you should make sure you join the fun.

Hello from Black Market SF! March 2014

The most exciting news for me is that this year I am getting married!  You probably remember my Paris trip and all the goodies I got there- but what I didn’t tell you is I also got engaged, and I wanted to hold on to that feeling for a bit before telling the whole world.  But if you have taken a look at my Pinterest lately, you have more than likely noticed my huge board of Wedding Inspirations.  And if you want, I will be happy to post about any wedding DIY projects I will be working on with one of my nine- yes NINE bridesmaids (I love them too much to not have them next to me).

Now, on to some awesome customer photos!  I sold these pieces from the shop and these lovelies were so great to send me photos of how JJV furniture revved up their decor!  Check it out!

For all of you who have just been jonesing for new merch in the shop, don’t fret!  We are creeping our inventory levels up and we are almost at 300 items in the shop!  HOLLER!

Here are some of my fave items in the shop now.  There will be more soon, especially after this weekend when we will be in LA at The Rosebowl (you should come visit).

 

 

And last but not least, for those who missed it- JJV was on the front page of Etsy this month!  WOOT!

POSTMORTEM: Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage + Rose Bowl Flea Market

Last weekend Allyson from Birthday Life Vintage and I embarked on an epic road trip to Los Angeles to do two shows; Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage and Rosebowl Flea Market. Silver Lake was such a cute little place, with the farmer’s market right down the street it was the perfect day for an outdoor fair!  Allyson and I had so much fun there, we hope you did too!

  At Silver Lake, I met Carrie from Barrington Blue and Lisa from Recycculents.  It’s so funny, the day before the market, I was browsing through Instagram and I found Carrie’s photos and I fell in love with her designs.  As we pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school that morning to set up our booth, I instantly spotted Carrie’s upholstery work.  What a small world!

At the Rose Bowl, we decorated our space with a July 4th theme!  We got up super early (3am) and got to The Bowl at about 4:30am.  It was really crazy with all the pickers with their flashlights hunting us down and snooping through our van while we were unpacking!  It was so much fun though.

Allyson and I got so pumped for our themed booth that we even dressed up in matching outfits!  Allyson is wearing deadsock vintage red, white and blue floral capris and a boatneck red and white striped top.  I am wearing a red and white striped tank that I made and a maxi skirt I made from blue and white floral vintage fabric.

All day we ran into super cool, fun and fashionable people; and I couldn’t help but to take some pics!
