Inside the Closet of: Jen Plas
What is a typical day like for you?
Depends. I’m an actress/two-time Mid America Emmy® Award-winning executive producer and if I’m filming for Shawnee Mission KIA or another client or project, I get my two kiddos (Lily, 11 and Alex, 6) off to school, then
grab my wardrobe (LOVE my Melissa Brace Oliver!) and kiss my husband goodbye. Rush over to hair and makeup (LOVE my Chavon Swartz!). Act cheesy in front of the camera. Make anyone and everyone around me go to Café Gratitude for lunch. Get home. Clean up house. Get kids off the bus. Wash my face and take out my hair. Put on sweatpants. Get dinner going. Get kids’ lunches made for the next day. Get homework done. Enjoy watching DVR’ed TV with my hubby. Get my daughter off her cell phone. Read with my son. Get kiddos to bed. Done. If I’m not filming, I’m either sitting in front of the TV needing a nap or I’m in multiple meetings getting business done. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
What are you wearing in this photo?
My sweater is from Sitzmark Boutique located in Trendz Market at 151st and Nall, my tank top and skinny jeans are from Flirt at 119th and Roe, and my boots are from Macy’s.
What is your most treasured item in your closet?
Used to be my belts and A-line dresses. I liked the size of my rump to be a mystery. But since I recently lost 30 pounds by healing my body through food, I’m enjoying buying all kinds of stuff! Needing a whole new wardrobe is a blessing and a curse. Pricey, but fun!
What do you like to wear when you are not in front of the camera?
Again, it depends. I love comfortable clothes, but I LOVE high fashion. I could be dangerous if I had a credit card with no limit. It’s funny because I “get” Lady Gaga and I “get” Richard Simmons. It’s fun to make statements with your clothes, but be comfortable at the same time.
What was the last item you purchased?
A pair of oxford brown riding boots. Fall is here! Normally I would want something with a heel ... but nope. Going outside my comfort zone! And I’m in love with them.
What fashion tips would your character, Marci Robinson, from your hit local Web series “The Unreal Housewives of Kansas City” offer?
Oh goodness! With Marci, the flashier the better! God love her. Don’t forget your Swarovski Crystal-encrusted martini glass!! The perfect accessory ...
