#WhatDrivesYou: Jennifer Choy
April 30, 2016
Whether it’s food, makeup or clothes, do what you love and love what you do – even if it’s for free.
What’s your wardrobe must have for transitioning weather?
I love those longer vests. Zara had this beautiful one, it was kind of expensive, but I loved it so much and I knew it would be one of my staples that went with everything, it was camel, it was gorgeous, it was neutral, so I think that’s my favourite transitional item.
What are you currently obsessing over?
I actually hate him, but his last two songs have been very good.
Where is your favourite place to seek inspiration? How do you keep constantly inspired?
I know this is so cliché, but I read a lot of fashion magazines. I’m not one of those people that could just walk outside and be like, “OH the leaves,” I just love magazines, whether it’s online or it’s print, that’s kind of where I get my inspiration from.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten? And did you follow it?
I used to work in a different world. I worked in PR and communications for a couple years and I really hated it. I used to confide in my friends all the time and just be like, “What do I do? I don’t know what I want to do” and someone very wise told me that I should find something that I love and figure out a way to make money off of it.
I feel so lucky because I wake up and I actually like my job even though it’s kind of annoying some times, but every job is going to be like that.
