Would you say that living in California has influenced your home decorating approach in any way?
Yes, California is so light and bright - full of sunshine and I want to capitalize on that as much as I can. There is so much available in terms of flea markets and vintage stores which also has played a huge part in my décor style.
How did you get started in styling and the fashion blogging community?
I started a blog called “The Vintage Society” in January 2007. It was before I knew other people would read my blog and I was mainly starting it as a way to promote a store that I was thinking about opening. I didn’t have the money to build a website, so I thought a blog would work instead. Of course, things changed a ton and blogging took off. I thankfully got to take the ride. It led to a sponsorship with Quiksilver Women which led to styling opportunities. I started B. Jones Style because “The Vintage Society” wasn’t really what I was about anymore. I had decided not to open a store and branding myself differently made sense.
Which item in your home has special value to you?
My bed means a lot. I love it and invested in it but there are some sentimental things that will last a lifetime, like my husband and I have a little vintage book that sits on a table in our bedroom. We leave love notes in there every so often and now it is a collection of our love from the last six years. Won’t that be fun to look back at after 50 years of marriage?
