Jodie Eisenhardt loves to mix and match styles, combining fast fashion looks with classic pieces. For a party celebrating the opening of the new Lucchese store in Highland Village, the publicist/food writer/animal welfare advocate paired a criss-cross black sleeveless top she brought at Topshop last spring with a black midi-skirt recently purchased at Banana Republic. The combo features just a bit of exposed midriff in a look that is right on trend now.
Her green Banana Republic clutch really pops against the all-black ensemble, which includes black pumps by Dolce Vita.
"I would describe my style as decidedly feminine but with an edge," Eisenhardt said by email. "I’m known for wearing dresses. I love Alice+Olivia, DVF and Tracy Reese but I also love to mix in bargain pieces (especially for trends) from Gap, Banana and Top Shop.
"Being 5’1, I pray that platforms never go completely out of style because I’ll likely wear them anyway!"
Eisenhardt, the co-owner of Two Chicks Communications, is currently working on a cookbook with Erin Hicks featuring soup recipes from Houston’s best restaurants.
