Shannon Helen Hodgson, who lives in Soho, NYC with her 10-year-old NewYorkie Bubba. Shannon is a fashion stylist with dreams of opening up her own children’s clothing & accessory boutique, including her own little ladies clothing line Juni. She began as an intern at MTV House of Style, and assisted many of the top fashion stylists only to realize that she didn’t want to work with celebrities or high-end fashion magazines. She found a liking for the less dramatic fashion world of dot.com. Now as the Style Director at Ann Taylor, Shannon has time to focus on Juni & pursuing her true dreams.
Shannon is a free spirit, super cool, and one-of-a-kind, so be sure to keep on reading to get the inside scoop from this talented NYC stylist.
I promise I’ll stop talking about window films and how much they have changed my small living space in NYC. This awesome sticky sweetness I’m flipping out over…I simply MUST share. Check them out.

My best friends husband wears this amazing Outlier Soft Core Wool Vest, so I just had to find out all about it!
For men searching for the best urban cycling pants available, look no further than Outlier, a new brand dedicated to crafting timeless, stylish apparel for the rigors of city riding. Founded by Tyler Clemens and Abe Burmeister, two New Yorkers with a passion for riding. Outlier seeks to provide advanced clothing for a seamless transition from the bike to the office.
Juni is a fanciful, seasonless little girl’s clothing line, inspired by the beautiful and lovely things in life…dreamy butterflies, sunny daisies, sweet hearts, a little bit of flower power & a lot of LOVE.
I’m a crafty girl & young designer at heart. I dreamt up the Juni “Summer of Love” debut collection from childhood memories of the adorable clothes my mother June made for me in the late 1970’s!
Juni designs are made with limited fabrics giving them a unique and special one-of-a-kind feel. Stitched with LOVE in New York City using 1970’s & 1930’s vintage inspired cheerful 100% cotton fabrics, Ric-Rac trim in an assortment of fun colors & some hints of embroidered eyelet. Each dress, romper & jumper has a detailed vintage look & a handmade quality that mother, daughter & friends will find delightful.
The gigantic “home-made” Oreo cookies at Jack’s Stir Brew are amazing, it is one of the best I’ve ever had…and of course the coffee is delicious. This is one of my favorite little coffee houses in the West Village. The place is a pretty thing & tends to fill up quickly, but it is completely worth it!
I am endlessly inspired by the crafty books, Japanese stationary & amazing little gift ideas. Kinokuniya Bookstore is an awesome place to hang out, and read obscure Japanese magazines & books, and also sometimes novelty books (i.e. money origami). With its recent renovations, being 2 stories now makes it all the better. More space to spread out, and more items to peruse.
