I came across Jess’ blog, The Style Bakery, last year and have loved seeing her outfits. What’s cool for us Americans is that Jess is a stylish blogger from Germany so it’s fun seeing the different brands she wears that we don’t have in the U.S. Now that I think of it, I need to plan a trip abroad to see these styles for myself!
Here’s some Q&A with Jess:
Why did you start The Style Bakery?
I used to spend a lot of time on lookbook.nu and once recognized I didn’t get the feedback I wished, I decided to create a space of my own.
Who takes your pictures?
Most of the time it’s me, but I also take every chance to convince my boyfriend and family. It gets more and more easy with every invitation and collaboration because they see how worthy some pictures may be.
What are your favorite fashion brands to wear?
I adore ZARA and the whole Inditex Group (Bershka, Stradivarius, Massimo Dutti…) for fashionable items. I love Furla, especially the Candy Bag. And I of course like high fashion designer’s pieces, like my Hermes Kelly watch. I think they are good investments
What city do you live in? How would you define the style there?
I’m from Hamburg, Germany. The style in my hometown is very casual, classy, and traditional. One can easily find out trends (e.g. the Hamburg Winter uniform: Woolrich Parka, UGG Boots, Louis Vuitton Speedy).
I personally like the style of Hamburg, it’s kind of luxurious- although we don’t show much individuality in that way. Trends come up very fast and it seems like people are copying styles even faster.
That’s also one of the reasons why I concentrate on what I see in fashion magazines or blogs from all over the world. There are so many interesting and inspiring people out there thanks to the internet!
