“Ohh this is a tricky one! There are tons of brands I love and admire but haven’t bought a single piece of clothing because that’s a few weeks salary. However at the moment I can’t get enough of Australian brands. BNKR recently sent me some items and they sell all the cool contemporary brands that I wish could fill my closet like C/MEO and thefifthlabel. A girl needs those staple pieces in her wardrobe.” –@KristinaWilde (stylebywilde.com)

I definitely focus on cool prints and silhouettes. I’m petite so it can look like I’m being swallowed up if I choose a strange cut. I absolutely love the 60s Mod silhouette and I can live in mini dresses.

what style advice would you lend to young adults who maybe seek it? 

Don’t over do it! Too many trends at once can be a bad thing. There is a difference between being “trendy” and “stylish,” and trust me, being stylish would be the one you want to aim for.

Los Angeles is probably the biggest source of inspiration for me. I moved here over 4 years ago and this city has been a huge influence for me ever since. I also lean towards simplicity and classic pieces.

Off the cusp describe your style:

Minimal, eating-breakfast-in-bed-casual, mostly white, grey, nude, black in my closet, but I don’t mind super bright gym clothes and shoes. I love having good quality basics and also love delicate accessories (mostly rings and bracelets).” –Remi, blogger

[the app has shop-able and searchable collections within it]

so we asked…

which collections cater to your style?

I have been loving the “Do It Denim”. I realized I have gravitated to so much denim. I will quickly run out of the house and not realize that I am wearing denim pants and my favorite oversized denim jacket.

I’m loving the boho chic and the around the world theme is pretty amazing because you get to see bloggers’ outfits from different cities while getting serious wanderlust!

ThreadStory No. 3

Flower Shop Entrepreneur Redefines Boho Beauty

When you meet Alexandra Scholtz, it is clear that she is in her element. That big, confident smile of hers reflects the creativity and healthy challenges she encounters as her life intersects with her work.  Alexandra recently moved to L.A. from upstate New York and opened up  Wild Flora, a floral design and gift shop in Studio City with her brother, a landscape architect. Alexandra curates the shop and designs floral arrangements for weddings, store front displays, individual bouquets, and more.

Alexandra grew up immersed in the business of flowers. Her mother owned a flower shop in New York so she had an affinity for floral arrangements at a young age. Initially reluctant to open her own store at such a young age, she went for it and so far has been grateful for taking the initiative. When she and her brother were looking for locations, the store front of what is now Wild Flora spoke to them both. If it wasn’t the Ivy that surrounded the large storefront window that sold them, it was the fact that the first three numbers in the address of the shop contained the address of their mother’s floral shop! 

Wild Flora curates  beautiful jewelry by local designers as well as scarves, accessories, children’s toys and home products. Alexandra’s store has a very home grown yet sophisticated feel; it has a boho meets minimal aesthetic vibe to it. Wild Flora is evidently a product of her good taste!

You might already know that Threads, our developing fashion app, offers something rather unique.

Not only is it’s content organized by a bevy of stellar stylists and bAbe-rham Lincoln bloggers, but it is searchable by theme. A.K.A. stop stressing over that perfect #bohochic look for tonight and simply punch it into the app.

 

Since we’re still technically pre-launch, we’ll lend you the mesmeric Fiona and her killer style for outfit inspo.

*Particularly perfect for our themes: boho chic & back to basics*

“Yes please!”, to this jumper on Fiona by Aussie queen Lisa Maree .

We met Fiona at a codesign for Threads during the app’s development with her also super stylish friend, Talia. Immediately, with Fiona’s innate fashion sense, personal hustle, and the professional moves she was making, we knew she was a Threads-girl. Check out her blossoming blog here and you’re welcome in advance for her threads here (well…until the app is out!).
