If there’s one thing model and blogger Jenny Parry doesn’t have a shortage of it’s beautiful photographs of herself. The wife of fashion photographer Jason Lee Parry reminisces with us about her SoCal-inspired style diary and the perks of being married to a shutterbug.
Q-How would you define your style?
My style is always evolving. I grew up in southern California listening to punk and rock ‘n’ roll and I hung out with skateboarders—so that style is in my blood. My mom always says I was born in the wrong era because I gravitate toward anything from the 60s and 70s. I wear what makes me happy, and it turns out it’s pretty eclectic.
Q-What makes your style diary different from others?
I try to keep it as simple as possible. It’s just me being me so I hope that makes it unique.
Q-What inspires you?
Films, music, my favorite fashion icons, traveling, my past, the weather! Anything that strikes me in my day to day life.
Q-What’s one fashion item you can’t live without?
My oversized motorcycle jacket that I stole from my husband. It’s not very original but it goes with everything. Plus, I get cold when the temperature dips below 75 degrees so it’s practical.
Q-How has modeling affected your lifestyle?
I don’t know what it’s like to have a 9 to 5 job. For me, every day is different so I have to be flexible and at the same time create some sort of schedule in my life. I started modeling right after I graduated from college so it’s been like this for some time now—it’s normal to me.
Q-What are some of your fall “must have” pieces of clothing?
A hot pair of ankle boots, silky 90s-ish slip dresses that I can layer stuff over, a shag coat and anything in mustard yellow or orangey-red.
