It's difficult not to fall under Janina Joffe's spell. Whether she's joking about Marnie singing Kanye West on Girls or showing off the basketball and NBA Barbie perched on a bookshelf piled with every art tome on the planet, the director of online gallery East of Mayfair simply radiates light.

Further inside, a peek into her wardrobe reveals some masterpieces of a different sort, including vintage designer duds once worn by her mother and straight-off-the-runway scores that were seemingly made for her lithe frame.
So, we got the gallery gal to show us how she pairs pretty pastels and florals with boyish basics, and remind us why we seriously need to start raiding our mothers' closets.
