Named after her two young children, Ripley and Tanner, her lifestyle blog, Rip + Tan, is quickly amassing a following, thanks to Kayne’s tasteful takes on everything from vegan cooking to fur hats.

What was your New Year’s resolution? Have you broken it yet?
To do my friend Jessica’s workout every morning. I’m on it — haven’t broken it!

Finish this outfit: yellow D’Orsay flats, All for the Mountain transformer cuff …
My new favorite jeans (Joe’s Jeans Vintage Reserve highwaters), a Jenni Kayne button-down, and Patricia Underwood hat from my store.

What is the key to a man’s heart?
Give him your heart.

We love your hair. How is it so awesome?
Thank you! Not cutting it and using Anita Louise lavender oil.

What is L.A.’s best-kept secret?
Tarte Tatin from LA Desserts.

Downton Abbey or Girls?
Girls! I love the characters.

What’s been your most viewed post so far?
The profile posts are always the most popular. I think people like looking into the world of other people and reading about how they live, the products they use, and their favorite things.

We completely agree. And if you want more voyeurism, find out where The Local Rose’s Shiva Rose gets juiced.
