Closet Stories: Jean Godfrey June’s Perfect Tee

EcoSalon: Closet Stories: Jean Godfrey June's Favorite Tee

Jean Godfrey June, Beauty Editor of Lucky Magazine, tells us about the favorite item in her closet.

As Beauty Editor of Lucky Magazine, Jean Godfrey June comes across many sparkly little packages on a daily basis (word has it that she receives somewhere between 50 to 200 products for review every day). But nothing speaks to her heart quite like that favorite tee.

“I have had this Miu Miu T-shirt for years, and it still my ultimate favorite, fail-safe item. It’s a t-shirt but it’s super-dressed up; where ever I wear it, it’s perfect. It speaks volumes and it says nothing. It’s tight but it’s loose. It’s pink and spangled with flowers yet somehow it’s super-tough. Good with a fancy skirt or ancient jeans.”

Isn’t that the way it is with everything that fits you perfectly? It just goes with anything. That’s what we call personal style. The only thing that is left to regret when it comes to buying things that put a sparkle in our eye is that we didn’t buy two. “If Muiccia Prada would make another one I would pay ANY price,” says Godfrey June.

In this new weekly column, we’ll take you inside the closets of some of our favorite people, asking them to choose one piece that defines them in some way and also, to tell the story behind it. To us, style is not about being a follower of trends, coveting this or that season must-have, it’s about carefully selecting pieces that deserve to be in your closet because they represent you. Personal style is something that lasts through years and fads — just like that favorite piece in your closet.
