Featured Friday: Jess from Elegantly Dressed and Stylish

March 11, 2016, by Carrie

Happy Friday, Friends! It's Carrie to introduce another of my blogging friends. I'm excited to introduce my blogging friend, Jess. I found Jess through various link-ups. She started her own link-up for style on Tuesdays and it continues to grow. Her style is a unique blend of vintage and feminine. She creates looks that totally her own and that's only one of the reasons I enjoy stopping by to see her weekly. You can follow Jess on Instagram.

What would you consider your greatest accomplishment and why?
I would first have thought to say my Master's Degree in Music and Elementary Ed, but find that keeping a positive attitude while dealing with an incurable chronic pain disease that I have, Ehlers Danlos has been my biggest accomplishment.

What is your greatest unfulfilled ambition?
To perform in a swing band like the Cherry Poppin Daddies or Big Bad Voddoo Daddy

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Funny, sarcastic, easy-going.

What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
I played a hot pink  BC Rich rock  bass in a Blues Band during college.

What hobbies do you have other than blogging? 

Playing electric ( 335 Gibson) and my Taylor Guitar, collecting vintage brooches, swimming. I also enjoy camping, hiking, and wine tasting to my list of hobbies.

What inspired you to start blogging?
I wanted another creative outlet for expression in addition to music. I felt my love for fashion would also help me as a diversion from pain, and keep me busy, while meeting like-minded women.

What is your favorite style season (fall, spring, summer, winter) and why?
Fall definately! My favorite season and fashion season. 
I love the colors, textures, and feel the colors work well with my hair and skin tone.

What is your ideal date night?
I love great wine! So for me, it might be a date-day where we go to a wonderful Vineyard and wine taste/listen to music. Recently, we have found NC has pup friendly vineyards too! Dry wine+ dry humour is a great date! :-)
