You have to be buzzed in at Verdigris (1001 N.W. 10th; 602-8986), which makes me feel very posh. (Although, I think it has more to do with the up-and-coming location than keeping out the proletariat.)

Best buys


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Add the fact that I was finally free to decorate my own space (no more lavender carpet and paint-splatter wallpaper last popular in 1989!), and I quickly turned into a decorating machine. Except I never had any money, meaning that “decor” was mainly on-sale finds consisting solely of little keepsake boxes and tiny frames. Otherwise known as junk.

Is this thing on?

::clears throat::

Jenny has passed her vibrant and quirky torch to me, as you may have already heard.
I’m your new resident ShopGirl, and I’ll do my best to keep you sweeties up-to-date on all things local and must-go.

First things first, right? I’m Jenn. I grew up on a dairy farm where I milked cows every day.

I was also charged with gathering the eggs from the henhouse. The whole milking cow thing was OK, but the feat of egg gathering was a daily strain that spiked an unnatural amount of fear in my being. Why, you say? Well, have you ever looked at a chicken in its beady eyes?

If you’ve done so and lived to speak of it, then I can only assume you are a soulless fowl constituent who secretly leads a double life in a colony of birds. You probably meet bimonthly and discuss the demise of me and other feather-fearing humans.

Right, more about me ... I’m a cold weather fan. And by fan I mean that I’m obsessed with snow and rain. Pictured below: My first boyfriend and I.



You might be thinking, How in the world did this gal with an Oklahoma-farmer background come to write about city-centric shopping? Well, if we’re being honest, it’s always been in the stars for me.

I’m incredibly drawn to all things beautiful, and I’m open to the idea that perception plays into each person’s idea of beauty. That being said, I’ll do my best to provide you lot with a wide variety of options, as well as the tools to search out and build your own personal style. Do you have your own person style mantra? If not, get to work on that!

It’s really an exciting time in the fashion world, mainly because the idea of style has taken root, grown and returned to an industry that had begun to drift in a less-than-approachable direction. Style is now saying, “Hey! No one wants to wear that!” The idea of buying into trends because they are fashionable is slipping away (thankfully!), and the freedom to be creative and personal with your style choices is settling in comfortably as the fashionable front-runner.

Anyway, I want to hear from you. What do YOU want help shopping for? If you’ve got ideas for, or if you have specific questions concerning fit (Can’t find the right pair of jeans? Let me know ... I know a guy! Want to know where to shop for the highest-quality workwear that won’t break your bank? Turns out I’ve a penchant for penny pinching sidled along my budget-breaking tastes.), please send them my way. Email me at jscott@tierramediagroup.com. Together, we’ll be the snazziest metro in the Midwest. Let’s shop, OKC!

Santa baby

No need to order gifts from the North Pole this year.


Features

Jenn Scott
If you’re like me, you’ve got at least three family members who are basically impossible to shop for. You’ve named constellations after them, certificate included. You’ve ordered unique, expensive European treasures to ensure the gift’s authenticity. I’m sure they don’t mean to be, but bugger, they’re hard to shop for!

Work it


Features

Jenn Scott
The wide world of working out oftentimes can be a little intimidating. Between the ’roid-raging beefcakes pumping steel bars loaded with tractor tires and the scantily clad vixens with the perfect high pony and zero cellulite, even the thought of a gym can be enough of a workout for one day.

Bring the bling


Features

Jenn Scott
Back in January, I made a New Year’s resolution to wear more jewelry. Sounds silly, I know. While I might have most things together, fashionably speaking, accessorizing by way of jewelry has never been my strong suit.
