NAME: Jas and Ness
WEBSITE/BLOG: Jas and Ness – http://tessa-jay-circanow.blogspot.com.au
CITY + COUNTRY: Los Angeles, United States
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
Jas: I read blogs all the time and honestly it’s the comments that inspire me! Lol no matter how negative or positive, it shows passion and enthusiasm. I’d like to have a blog one day that brings that commentary. Also, just to be able to show people who follow us different sides of us, keep them updated with the cool things we do.
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
“A Twins Way Of Life” derived from a fellow blogger who used the name “A Kings Way Of Life” it had a little ring to it. That’s the point of our blog, to show you our way of life through photos … with the “Jas & Ness: Fashion, Music, Lifestyle” it’s pretty straightforward
WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?
There are these two racially ambiguous, super attractive girls who dress there ass off and look just alike! :-p
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?
Jas: my motto is “Stay Ready, Ain’t Gotta Get Ready!” In my world, I never know who I’m gonna meet next or what wave I will be thrust into LOL so I dress conveniently. I like to look dressed up all the time, so I wear gold jewelry with everything and over-accessorize! My signature style my is cat eyeliner and swooped bangs.
Ness: In one word, it would be VERSATILE. I can start the day off in sweatpants and a crop top and then by evening drop the sweats, throw on a skirt and heels and be ready to go after a couple touch ups!
WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
Jas: Petite Asian women, I realized that when I lived in Flushing Queens, New York. We used to take the 7 train and it was located in the Chinatown part and I would see all these older Asian women with their shirts tucked into their jeans with a belt and a wrap. That’s definitely where my “base” style comes from.
Ness: I’m inspired by overseas fashion; mixing Asian and European with a little bit of South Sacramento.
FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?
Jas: HommeFemme is a streetwear brand on the come up. They take really basic silohuettes, alter the cut and the dopest intricate detail to it! www.HommeFemmeLA.com RoperRope is a good friend of ours. He has the most original yet classic style I’ve seen and he inspires me not only with his designs but with his work ethic! ShopRoperRope.com
