Gettin’ Crafty with Gild Collective

Sometimes I scroll through Pinterest and wonder, “Are these people for real?” I mean, I’ve done a DIY project or two, but I stick to the easy stuff. Everyone out there MacGyver-ing their way through high end Ikea hacks is operating on a level to which I’ll never even aspire. So when Thread had the opportunity to partner with Gild Collective, a woman-owned startup that throws Pinterest worthy in-home craft parties, I was interested but cautious....

Work // Libby Lookbook

A few work projects have come to fruition lately, including the Libby Lookbook, photographed by Claudia Hershner, produced and styled by me, and starring some of my favorite local bloggers. One warm summer day, we all headed to Findlay Market and enjoyed a little fun in the sun--in front of the camera, of course. http://issuu.com/thestylesample/docs/libby_summer_15_lookbook You can check out the lookbook online or order a print copy if you’d like to see it in person; and of course...

Travel // Lessons Learned, San Juan Edition

If you’re lucky enough to be on or heading to vacation (it is that time of year), I learned a few things during a recent trip to Puerto Rico that I’d like to pass on to you: 1. Itsy bitsy bikinis are fun on the beach. Bikini, Hustler Hollywood 2. Good-smelling, effective, water-resistant sunscreen is a must. See itsy bitsy bikini above. Neutrogena Beach Defense, Walgreens 3. A good shaving cream--one that works on, uh, sensitive areas--is a must....

Style // I Beat the Trend!

I know it’s still summer, but every year around this time I start missing my boots and sweaters like they’re old friends I haven’t seen in a while. While browsing for a little cool-weather inspiration on style.com, I came across the ultimate fashion validation: Fall fashion trends that fall right in line with my personal style. Don’t you love when that happens? I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: gray is the perfect non-color....

Work // Magazines in the Wild!

What seemed like a neverending merry-go-round of scouting and photo shoots has borne fruit! The latest issues of Baby Guide, Cincinnati HOME, and Cincinnati Wedding magazines are out in the wild, which means you should absolutely check them out on newsstands and online. [caption id="attachment_5519" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Dressing our Baby Guide mini models on set. They were so cute![/caption] I wrote several pieces for the front-of-book pages of Cincinnati HOME in addition to producing and styling shoots,...

Shop Around // Atelier by AdornUSA

I’ve known about Atelier by AdornUSA for a while, but I’ve known the company’s founder, Arlene Aranzamendez, even longer. We initially met when she did some graphic design work for a company I used to work for, and have managed to keep in touch via seemingly random encounters over the years. A few years ago, Arlene opened an online-only jewelry shop, then expanded to a small boutique in Madeira, and now has a cool spot in...

Meanwhile, On the Other Side of the Camera

A few months ago, Dayton-based photographer Tiernae Salley contacted me about doing some lifestyle photography to build her portfolio. I’m not a model by any means, but I’m always happy to help out fellow creatives (and self-photography is so time consuming), so we made plans for an hour-long session at New Riff Distillery. It was so fun! I did my best Vogue imitation and preened and posed in the beautiful bar and patio area while Tiernae...

Current Obsession // Podcast Madness

Ever since Serial blew up, there’s been a lot of talk about the explosion of the podcast. Not to sound all hipster-braggy, but I’ve been listening to podcasts since 2008, and while I still have some oldies-but-goodies (Pop Culture Happy Hour, Marketing Over Coffee, Star Talk Radio) in rotation, lately I’ve been exploring the world of entrepreneurship and lifestyle podcasts. Here are a few I’m currently obsessed with: Being Boss This is my favorite podcast right now,...
