I am really excited about the new way that we are going to model the clothing in my boutique. Going forward, my favorite fashion bloggers will be modeling the pieces. This will be a great way to have an already close community supporting each other, and that is essentially the spirit of Emerging Thoughts To start things off, Beatrice Holloway will be modeled by Katie Shelton of skunkboycreatures.blogspot.com/
I chose Katie because her style represents Beatrice Holloway's sweet and feminine knit pieces.
Here's a little Q&A with Katie:
How long have you been blogging? Why did you decide to start a blog?
I have been blogging for about 4 years, but only seriously for a little over 2 years. I originally started blogging as a way to share different bits and pieces of my handmade business, but it has grown into something so much more. Now I share about my life, music I love, outfits I wear, my kids, and DIYs.
You also own your own small business Skunkboy Creatures. Why is it important to support small businesses like ours?
I'm all about supporting small businesses. As someone who runs their own handmade shop, I know what kind of work goes into starting, growing, and maintaining a business. It is a true labor of love and I want to help support others with the same dream.
How would you define your style?
My style is very girly and feminine. I love a great dress. Actually, there aren't a lot of things better than a really great/wearable dress. I'm totally smitten with and inspired by fashion from the 60s and some of the 70s.
Which are your favorite Beatrice Holloway pieces?
Easy: the Made in the Dark blouse, the Flounce Dress, and the Coltrane Dress.
Favorite bands? Which are your favorite records?
Three of my favorite bands/albums right now are Sam Roberts' Collider, Dr. Dog's Be the Void, and St. Vincent's Strange Mercy.
