Coming from the East Coast, my first obvious question upon arrival to Los Angeles was, “Where can I see the celebs?” Since then, I’ve found out that there is much more to this incredible city than the stars that walk the streets, but there are a few specific places you’re sure to spot some of your favorite starlets. The Grove, filled with dozens of high-end stores and restaurants, is the perfect place for a shopping spree, star sightings and getting to know Los Angeles. From Topshop to Splendid to Barneys New York and so many more, the shopping is high-end and fabulous to get your perfect West Coast look. In addition to the wonderful shopping and yummy food, The Grove is the location of several events, including concerts, fashion shows and all kind of summer fun! I recently had the chance to chat with the woman who makes it all possible, and who never fails to look awesome doing so.
Name: Jenny Bronstein
Role: Senior Director of Strategic Alliances and Entertainment, The Grove
CollegeFashionista: What’s your favorite part about working at The Grove?
Jenny Bronstein: I love being able to work with an iconic property, on such a diverse group of projects. I happen to work with pretty remarkable people, as well.
CF: What’s your favorite store at The Grove?
JB: Barneys New York. Hands down.
CF: What’s your typical wardrobe for your workday?
JB: I’m a dress girl. I prefer slightly fitted (but not too tight) dresses, paired with a statement piece of jewelry to add flair and a super high heel. Yves Saint Laurent pumps are the best—I can last all day in a pair of those!
CF: What are some notable events that you’ve worked on for The Grove?
JB: The Annual Summer Concert Series.
CF: What are you favorite trends for the summer season?
JB: I absolutely LOVE the all-white trend. It’s fresh, chic and sophisticated, but can be dressed up, down or edged up with the right accessories. I recently bought a new Band of Outsiders dress, and it has become a staple. Though it took me a while to warm up to the idea, I do love the crop top trend. My current favorite is a black, white and green striped top from A.L.C. (my fave designer of the moment).
