Blogger Award 2!

I’ve had the honor and privilege of being nominated again for the Blogger Award for inspiring blogs. I cannot begin to describe to you, my amazing followers and viewers, how wonderful it is to inspire others, especially with my blogging. Fashion can honestly define your day and how you feel. N matter if you’re just running around the house in sweatpants or you’re dressed up for an event, you should always feel comfortable, confident, and content with yourself.

I love inspiring others with my fashion work because I love doing it and it makes me happy. I want to be someone who people come to not only for fashion advice and tips, but because my work brought an interest for them and that they enjoyed it. I like exploring the fashion world and I hope I can help other people do the same and to love fashion like I do.

Things I Did This July

Back in Ohio!
Denni, her cousin Devin and I decided we were going to try being “in training cooks”. Since it was the 4th and summer we were feeling a beach themed snack! So last night we decided to do “A bear in Paradise”. Which is by far the coolest/easiest snack we could have done! Great for parties or friends coming over for a swimming party!

Rules:

Post 11 random facts about yourself
Answer the following 11 questions
Nominate 11 other (newer) blogs for the award

11 Facts:

1. I don’t categorize “screamo” music as actually music…(no offense screamo fans!)
2. I don’t like fairs.
3. I wish I was Norwegian.
4. I have a fear of sharks.
5. I hate Croc shoes.

8. I recently found out I actually like wearing hats.
9. I will never wear the colors brown or red.
10. I’m a compulsive dreamer.
11. I have a thin figure and suffer with sleep apnea.

Questions:

1. Why did you start blogging?
I’ve always been interested in style and trends. I wanted to share my ideas with the world for other people to enjoy. Starting my blog was a creative and effective way to put my style and life out there; plus it’s a good stress reliever.

2. Where did your blog name come from?
“Jack Threads” was actually my inspiration. I shortened the name and attempted to add a more luxurious feel to it, which seems to be working!

3. What is your favorite of your own blog posts?
I really enjoyed my Karl Lagerfeld post. He kinda jump started this amazing blogging journey that I’m now on! He is not only a huge name in the fashion industry but also his name has a lot of pull and influence on anything fashion. He’s a role model for me.

4. How do you find new blogs to follow?
I love collaborating with apparel companies and am currently working with a few wonderful ones. This helps me not only get a huge boost with finding other blogs, but it’s great for both myself and the company’s names and businesses. Other social media sites, talking through fellow bloggers, and finding posts with tags I’m interested in helps find new blogs too.

5. Would you ever stop following a blog? Why?
I’ve only unfollowed another blog once. It was when I first starting out blogging, I asked a fellow blog for some advice. I was told “I don’t follow back” and pretty much I needed to work on everything I was doing because I was wrong. Turns out I’m now more successful than I ever thought I would be and everyday it’s getting better and better for me and my site. I have the best followers and people who view my blog and I never needed that negative energy and “advice” in the first place.

6. What is your opinion on commenting on blog posts?
Always be kind and if you can’t be then don’t say anything. Anyone who knows anything about style, art, fashion, etc. knows comments are meant to build people up and give compliments. Of course fashion in a critical world, don’t get me wrong, but personality can be shown through style and it’s important to just be nice to everyone. Commenting on posts is a great way to spread ideas and get publicity.

7. Name one author whose books you will always read.
To be honest, I don’t read many books. I prefer articles online and internet posts to books.

8. If you could recommend one book for another person to read, what would it be and why?
If you know me, you know I love Coco Chanel. And as I just said, I’m not into reading books, but the book Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardie can be found here and is a great read about an amazing woman.

9. What is your most anticipated read of 2014?
I just saw “The Fault in our Stars” movie and I would love to read the book.

10. Who is your favorite designer?
Karl Lagerfeld, of course.

11. How do you pick your outfits?
My outfits are usually basic. I like wearing well fitted shirts as well as polos. Black and white is my favorite color collaboration, which makes clothing outfits a lot easier to put together.

Nominations:

All of the blogs I currently follow are spectacular. I’m picking great blogs that don’t show archives before April 2014 for this nomination. As I previously stated, I can’t get over how cool it is to find people with similar interests, especially in fashion and style!

T H R E A D S : Q&A

How did you decide to go into blogging?
Actually I became inspired after looking at international style and I came across Norway which blogging is rather large and so I began to read with the help of google translate and I enjoyed the layout and the mood if it all it’s a good get away sometimes!
When did I become interested in fashion?
YOUNG actually see when I was a kid I had this very large obsession with what was in and popular at the time such as Nike and Adidas and as I got older it became more and more progressive and then it just started to grow and now I’m all about the worlds clothing!
What is it that you love about style?
I personally like how it never stays the same trends change vastly and I like a good challenge to stay ahead of the game style is forever but clothing and trends change rapidly!
Who is my favorite Designer/fashion house?
Currently I am really into Zara due to the amazing quality and not the insane price tag but the thing is my interest changes constantly I just enjoy the vastness of it all!
If I could shop at one designer what would it be?
You guys put me on the spot here haha! I think if I had to pick anywhere I’d have to go Balmain it’s a pretty amazing store with a great design feel and it is very different keeps things interesting!but trust me that can change any day haha
How do I feel about black and brown being worn together?
All depends on the tone of the brown light brown shouldn’t be awful dark with dark is never a good idea unless black on black which is sometimes extremely good! But in my opinion I don’t wear brown with black!
What would I consider a fashion faux pas for older women?
Okay with age women should dress more comfortable I don’t think anyone would like to see an elderly woman wearing 6 inch heels and dressing like she is in her twenties. Dress more to your figure and less to impress. Age is a time to dress casual and classy!
Do you incorporate costume jewelry in your style?
I don’t mainly because I’m not of the era I see people who can rock the costume wear I however am not that person if you can rock it you absolutely should!
Who would I choose as the next designer for Chanel?
Is Karl retiring?! Haha geez I honestly have never thought about it there a thousands of aspiring artist out there who would love to take a shot at one of the top clothing houses! I will get to you on that!
Going to Italy , how to not stick out?
Italy! Known for the Italian fashion and lifestyle is actually rather casual they enjoy the leather look but with it being hot I’d stay clear so honestly dress comfortable and confident PS Italians like tourist!!
Bottoms to wear for shorter and curvier women?
Bottoms for curvier women is a problem I see a lot of women face and it isn’t really a easy thing to answer but what I can say is My best Friend Denni is a shorter girl who has curves too and she can rock shorts dresses and jeans she shops at great stores and she keeps herself up and it is all about confidence see if you like those shorts that skirt or those jeans you buy them because it’s what you like and for style wise I’ll post a picture
