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.
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!
