Like so many of my inspirational discoveries these days, I was introduced to Lady Jones on Tennyson street through my Instagram feed. I fell in love with the clear, minimal aesthetic of the clothing and jewelry in each post. I soon found out that the shop was new to Denver, having just opened in October of 2016. Being a new business owner myself, I decided to get in touch with Lady Jones founder, Nicole Schnitzlein, and see if we could collaborate in some way. Fast-forward a couple of months, and I was styling one of my clients in some of my favorite picks from her shop!
Read on to learn a bit more about Lady Jones, check out how Rogue Closet wears the pieces, then head over to Tennyson street to shop for yourself (I recently left with the Kozah “U” earrings in gold ($36), and they haven’t left my ears in weeks!)

Rogue Closet: Just so customers know right away, everything in your shop is under $200, correct? Was that a conscious part of your business model before opening?
Lady Jones: It absolutely was. My goal is to offer quality products at accessible price points in an inviting atmosphere. There’s definitely some leg-work involved when it comes to brand selection- it’s this pseudo-juggling act where you need the quality to be there, but the price has to be right. Through this, however, I’ve found some amazing lines that haven’t been represented in our state. Sometimes they can be a hunt to find, but that’s what makes our product so exciting!
RC: I had a ton of fun mixing-and-matching several pieces from LA-based brand, Lacausa (pieces featured throughout); what is the story behind this label?
LJ: The name literally translates to “the cause”. I can’t speak highly enough about what this company is doing, and in my opinion we need more brands who operate as they do. Their entire platform is simple: quality products made under ethical conditions. Everything they produce comes straight from their Los Angeles factory at prices that don’t break the bank ($50-$150). Aside from the standards driving the company, their line represents what I love about building a functional wardrobe. They offer a core collection of well-made basics that pair effortlessly back to their comfortable, modern seasonal pieces.

RC: Is there one trend for spring that you are especially looking forward to?
LJ: I really can’t pry myself away from the tomboy/men-driven looks. I don’t care that my boyfriend doesn’t “understand” my wide leg jeans- I’m comfortable and I feel AMAZING in them. That being said, there’s absolutely a way to tie some of these (perhaps, intimidating) pieces back to everything you already own.
And speaking of denim- everything going on right now is making me go gaga. Release hems, patchwork, a serious track suit stripe? I’m all about it.

RC: Have you found that there is a style unique to the women of Denver?
LJ: I don’t know that it’s something we have nailed down yet as a city- but that’s what I love!
On the whole I think we keep it pretty casual here. There is a laid back feeling to how we dress, which I so appreciate because it allows us the option to “dress it up” when we want to, but it’s never a requirement.
Oh- and year round boots- who’s mad about that?
YES. Go Rogue. xx
