Say Hey! to one of this years BLOGGER BASH panelist. We are so excited to have her join us on September 15th as we breakdown to highs + lows of blogging in Ohio.
Rebecca gave us a little insight on her journey in our get to know me Q+A below. She gave us so much life!
Q1: Can you give us a little of your background? What inspired you to create RJSFASHION?
RJS stands for Rebecca Joy Shakespeare which my maiden name and it came about when I was studying aboard in London,England. I was inspired by my experience there and loved the urban-vintage fashion there.
Q2: What was the vision behind it?
I have always wanted to be in fashion since the third grade and knew I needed to start somewhere before I could become a fashion house so I started with accessories. I also wanted a fun, funky faith based brand that allowed my clients to feel unique and comfortable in their own style. I also wanted to feature other brands and people I thought were inspirational/impactful to my audience.
Q3: How long have you been creating Fashion accessories? Was this your chosen career path?
I have been making accessories for myself since high school but started selling them in 2011 on my college campus. I was getting my bachelors in Fashion Merchandising at BGSU
Q4: What was the process of building a blog like? How long did it take you to get started?
I had started the blog portion of my business while on break from school. I literally jumped right in. I did research on networking and made a list of people I wanted to interview/feature on my blog and started reaching out to them for a phone interview or a face to face interview.
Q5: What inspired the name choice?
I really wanted to keep my name in some way or some form in my business name.
Q6: Where did your love for mixed patterns come from?
I started loving mixing prints when I became seeing designs by Betsey Johnson who is one of my favorite designers. I loved how she would put crazy bold prints together.
Q7: What blog/photo post was the most fun to create?
I think one of my most fun photoshoots I did was my Disney's genie inspiration fashion shoot.
Q8: What excites you most about being a panelist for the Alpha Female Blogger Bash?
I'm so excited because I get to connect with other bloggers in the city and talk about something we love to do!
