Jen Patryn is a New York-based fashion editor and the founder of Prismvessels. From Givenchy pumps to Saint Laurent leather jackets, Jen's wardrobe is a dream; I have a special crush on her vintage well-worn rock tee and her Stella McCartney white knits. Here she shares with us a few of her favorite items from her incredible dressing room/walk-in closet...

Your very favorite outfit: I have so many. Most include Givenchy, Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent, and Céline.
The #1 item from your fashion wish list: Givenchy Couture.
The TV or movie character's wardrobe you'd steal in a minute: Black Swan with Natalie Portman. Last scene as the Black Swan. I used to dance ballet, so I loved the costumes.
Three things from your closet you couldn't live without:
- Céline bag
- Givenchy python sandals
- Black Givenchy Kimono Jacket
The item you no longer have but wish you did: Black croc Hermès cuff. Lost it while dancing and running around.
Most fashionable friend and why: Brent Birnbaum. He just got me the coolest Cynthia Rowley wetsuit. He doesn't follow trends. He loves color and when I see what he wears it makes me happy.
Your typical work “uniform”: Skirt or dress. Flats or small heel.
IRL shop: I guess I'm a brick and mortar girl. I don't even know what this means. Hahha
Online shop: Shamans Market.
Makeup brand: NYC black liquid eyeliner; it's the cheapest brand and the best eyeliner. I love it.
Haircare brand: L'oréal.
Best jeans: Vintage '70s.
Coolest sneakers: Nike Airmax, New Balance.
Signature scent: Luna from Perfumera Curandera, Tom Ford's Oud Wood, Palo Santo oil from Ecuador that I bring back with me every time I go there.

As a fashion editor, who do you most want to work with? Do you have a dream gig? I worked at Teen Vogue for 4 years. I always feel at home at Condé Nast. Doing a story for Paris Vogue would be a dream come true.
What has been your most exciting styling job to date? That's a hard one! So many. Ok I'm going with a campaign shot by Terry Richardson for Belvedere. It was the craziest and most fun job!! Also staying at a castle in Wales and meeting Lords and Ladies shooting in the gorgeous countryside for Teen Vogue.
