Shopping // Seasonal Wardrobe Wish List

If you've been reading for a while, you've probably noticed that every season I decide on a look. This is both for fun and practical purposes: thinking about fashion is as natural as breathing for me, and making lists of things is 100% my jam. Plus, it's fun to editorialize your own wardrobe every now and then, and having a set aesthetic makes shopping--and NOT shopping for things that don't fit--that much easier. This season, I've

Work // Ball Tracer Dummy Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago, my friend Josh Anderson (you remember him from the podcast, right?) reached out with an interesting concept for a photo shoot: ballistics and martial arts. Josh likes weird stuff, and after years of styling relatively tame editorials for a mainstream audience, it was fun to push the boundaries a bit.

Giveaway // Win $250 to Shop at Simon Premium Outlets!

One sunny Saturday morning, the Thread Cincinnati babes headed to Premium Outlets for an early shopping spree. The team at Simon (which owns the outlet) had invited us for mimosas and shopping, and we were more than happy to oblige! J.

31 Resources for Visual Inspiration

When I'm producing photo shoots, putting together the creative direction is not only fun, but useful: it helps me hone in on a vision, acts as a trigger for new ideas, and provides examples of lighting and composition, which make it much easier to communicate with the client and crew. Thank

Style // Dress Karma

When you find the right dress, it's meant to be. I tried on this Karlie dress at a Thread x Pretty Pony Boutique event a year ago and loved it, but wasn't really sure I had an occasion to wear it.

For New Lingerie Shop Swoon, the Name Says it All

I've mentioned my devotion to cotton underwear and no-wire bras before, but I never expected there to be a lingerie store centered around all of the above just blocks from me and my credit cards. Swoon, which opened on Vine Street this month, is a feminine (and feminist) haven of warm peach tones and comfy underthings for women who mix the fanciful with the practical. The boutique carries bras and underwear from eco-friendly lines like baserange
