Interviewing Jacque of The Lion Kingdom
Hello guys, today I am introducing Jacque of www.the-lion-kingdom.com, she also runs the online store Shoplioness.com full of amazing pieces, I’ve caught myself drooling over. Jacque is truly a blogging force to be reckoned with, from her blog, online store and YouTube lookbooks, Jacque is totally someone to look out for.

The Eye: Do you blog as a hobby, or do you want it to grow into something more?
Jacque: I blog for two reasons. The first is that it’s fun. I love to write, although I’m not that great at it, so blogging for me is a blast! I also love getting to know other bloggers/creative people, so my LIONESS features help me do that. The second reason is I have a small online vintage shop called LIONESS (www.shoplioness.com) and my blog is also a way to share shop updates and products. So it’d be awesome if it grew but for now it’s more of a hobby that I mask as work. (more pieces from her shop ShopLioness)

The Eye:If you had to pick a theme song for your style, what would it be?
Jacque: This one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5Vjvb38DnQ.
*Side note from The Eye, that’s an awesome song!*
The Eye: How do you feel about the recent popularity thrift shops have going on right now?
Jacque: Even though I loooove thrifting myself, I’m extremely indifferent about the trend. I love that it’s sparking creativity and money saving…but like everything else I know it will fade soon and be replaced by the next. When that time comes I’ll be a happy girl because all the good stuff won’t be gone anymore! lol
The Eye: Do you have a style icon, if no, why?
Jacque: I used to. It was Janelle Monae. I’d wear suits, oxfords, etc…now I’m less concerned with what I wear. I just throw things on and I hope they go together lol. Sometimes when you have one particular style icon, you become so wrapped up in what they would wear instead of just being you. I definitely had a problem with that, so no icons for me.
The Eye: How do you feel about the current state of fashion blogging?
Jacque: I only read blogs I like so as far as I know it’s great!
The Eye: Want to give a blogger shoutout, as in any bloggers you’re loving right now, you’d like the readers to check out?
Jacque: http://twinvibes.blogspot.com/ These twins have awesome vintage style..and they wear LIONESS pieces and wear them oh so well!
The Eye: Where can we see more of you?
