Meet Jennifer who most often goes by Jenn in real life, but you most likely know her as @autumncoffee on ShopLook. She currently lives and goes to school in Portland, Oregon, but grew up in a small town in Nevada. At 14 she discovered Polyvore and has been creating gorgeous sets since then (first on Polyvore, then on ShopLook.) Every outfit in her feed is like a perfect and simple capsule wardrobe idea, and I love it.
Check out some of our favorite @autumncoffee designs and her full Q&A below.
Favorite fashion decade?
When starting a new outfit, what is the first thing that you place on a blank canvas?
If I am creating a new set there is usually a theme or color scheme so I will scroll through my liked items and add different items that jump out to me. If it is a color scheme I will search the color in my liked items. If I can't find anything there, I will do an overall search to find what I'm looking for.
Your personal style in three words:
dark, feminine, grunge
Something you could wear with everything for a week:
I would honestly choose black and white Old Skool Vans because they go with a lot of different looks, and they are comfortable.
Something that you (almost) always include in your sets?
I always try to include little accessories that can add to the set or fill space in the set layout that I create.
Advice for others looking to improve their creative process?
I find that challenging yourself to create different things is a great way to improve your creative process. When it comes to creating a set, I find that looking for different challenges helps me get out of the rut of making the same thing again and again.
Any favorite creations?
I have a few favorite sets! One of my most favorite sets includes my cat, Nova, and the idea of the set was to create something that embodies her, and I thought that it was really fun to make.
Another favorite set of mine was actually the recent challenge, fuzzy textures! The style of the set that I created was kind of different for me, and I really like how it turned out!
Current phone wallpaper?
My current wallpaper is actually a scene from the anime, Demon Slayer. The character Tanjiro is sleeping in front of a building and there are cherry blossoms floating in the air.
Fun fact others might not know about you?
I actually have a twin! She is also a creator on ShopLook, and her name is Tiffany.
Album you could listen to on repeat for a week:
An album that I would choose to listen to would be BTS' The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever album. This album has so many good tracks, and it's one of my favorite BTS albums that they have come out with.
Something that you bought recently and absolutely love?
I recently bought myself a 20 inch red fox Squishmallow and I absolutely love it. They are so soft and squishy, and I think I now have an obsession to Squishmallows, I would highly recommend buying one haha.
Any trends you once wore but now make you cringe?
I happened to be a scene/emo kid in the mid 2000s, and I wore fingerless gloves and bright skinny jeans. I deeply regret it now haha.
Current area of study?
I am currently studying at a 4-year university, and I am studying Child, Youth, and Family Studies. While I like learning about child development and families, I also enjoy art history, and history in general.
How long have you been creating?
I first got my start on Polyvore, which I assume most on ShopLook also did. I think I started creating designs when I was 14 or 15 years old, and have been doing it ever since. I started creating outfits to express myself and my style because I felt that I couldn't express myself, style-wise, in other ways. I am plus size, and it is hard to find clothing that I like that fits right on me, and creating outfits helped in a way.
I go by Jenn by most of my friends and family, I actually don't like going by Jennifer and I feel that Jenn suits me better.
