Last week we introduced you to Cathy Anderson of Poor Little It Girl, one of the founding members of the blogger network, Southern Blog Society. Now, meet her partner-in-crime Jessica Camerata of My Style Vita. The two are are on a mission to grow the Southern style and blogging scene one enviably cute outfit at a time.
Girl behind the blog: Jessica
Lives in: Atlanta
Her style: “My staples will always include adding edgier pieces to any look like leather jackets, statement shoes, and loads of gold jewelry.”
One for the books: ”One of my favorite looks was one I wore on a date. It was this amazing Rachel by Rachel Roy dress (now on sale for $90!) that was beyond flattering and fun to wear. I, of course, added a leather jacket and spiked heels. I felt super confident, which makes all the difference in how you look.”
Style icon: ”Jennifer Lawrence is definitely one of my favorite recent Southern style icons. Her red carpet looks are flawless. Plus, her spunky personality and charm gives her extra points.”
Southern style: ”There’s a level of pulled togetherness. The pearl necklaces, polos—everything’s so classic. For someone like me, who’s style is not very classic, I definitely stick out a bit.”
Blog roll: ”The first two blogs I discovered and loved were Kendi Everyday and This Time Tomorrow. I love Kendi for her witty writing and Krystal Bick (of This Time Tomorrow) for her ridiculous closet. If money were no object, I’d likely be wearing everything she owns.”
Fall must-have: ”A great coat. I’ve been eyeing this BB Dakota leather, quilted-sleeve trench. It’s pretty much perfect.”
Made in the South: ”Alternative Apparel (from Atlanta) is by far my favorite Southern brand. Their shirts and dresses are my favorite casual pieces. Plus, their hoodies are so soft and comfy.”
A Southern woman never leaves the house without: “Perfect hair. I think this is the one thing that separates the North from the South. The first thing you notice when you go to NYC is that no one’s hair is done. But in the South, it seems like perfect curls and blowouts are a must.”
Coming up: ”The Southern Blog Society is currently working on a project with the Pink Heals foundation, in which several style bloggers assist in styling breast cancer survivors for a fashion show. It’s projects like these that help make this industry stronger.”
