Mingle Monday: Threadesque

Hi lovelies! My name is Sam, you may know me from RoseVintage and/or ThreadesqueI'm originally from a state shaped like a mitten but have been living in the lovely city of Missoula, MT! I love traveling around the world finding vintage treasures for my etsy & mobile shop! On the weekends you can find me playing in the mountains with my fiance, Donovan! :)

1.       What got you into blogging and how long have you been at it? 
I started blogging last year so I could share my inspiration with the world! I also wanted to keep my family in the loop after our big move to Missoula, MT. 

2.       What does blogging mean to you? Business of pleasure?
I would say it's a little bit of both. I love blogging, it's a great way for me to organize all of my thoughts/ideas! It's also a great way for me to attract people to RoseVintage! 

3.       What do you mostly blog about?
A little bit of everything! Threadesque means "A lifestyle inspired by fashion". My life revolves around my love for fashion & design. I love sharing my daily outfits (they're not always spectacular but I love the idea of approachable/wearable clothing). 

4.       What do you besides blogging? What’s a normal day like in the life of _____?
I usually start my day out with a cup of coffee (strong dark coffee to be exact), throw on a vintage frock, load Otis (my old english sheepdog) into my car, ship packages, head to all of the local thrift shops, come home & process all my purchases, go out or make dinner with Donovan, then we usually watch a movie.. mostly comedies that Dono picks out! :) 

5.       Do you plan out your posts or just kind of wing it? Strict schedule blogger or go with the flow blogger?
Great question! I've been working on becoming a strict schedule blogger. For the last year I've just been winging it & I find it challenging to post on a daily basis with that method. I think if you have a set schedule, it makes you more consistent. I've started a few scheduled posts; Wedding Wednesdays, Treasury Thursdays, Fashion Friday, Guest Post Sundays. 

6.       Are you a daytime blogger or night owl blogger?
Night owl, for sure! 

7.       Name a few of your favorite blogs and why?
The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman is a genuis & I'm incredibly inspired by street style!

A Beautiful Mess, I love all of the DIY posts!

Oh So Lovely Vintage, I absolutely adore Erin & Stephanie! Not only because they own the cutest mobile shop around but for their amazing vintage style! 


From one Sam to another, thanks for coming over and being my guest blogger! You guys should go check out her blog now (: 

Well the weekend is over and I feel really refreshed. I've still got some sickness lingering (stuffy nose, sore throat, etc.) but it's manageable. I've been feeling really creative lately and more in a fashion-y kind of way. The past like 6 months I've been  really focused on our home but I'm trying to stray away from making things because of all the de-cluttering/simplifying! Plus I've just started a new project so I've been doing lots of research and have some fun clothes diy's swirlin' around my head. So beware! 

Happy happy monday!!!
