Meet the Blogger: Jessica of Belle Adore

When we think of the things we adore during the holidays, lace, sparkles and fresh cookies all come to mind. We also adore Jessica of Belle Adore. This fashion blogger visited Sweetest Stitch at our new boutique. She is now ready for the holidays! Let's get to know her and what she loves most about this time of year...

When did you first fall in love with fashion?

I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember! My family works in the fashion industry, so I have been surrounded by it for a long time. I guess it was only natural that I take up interest in the industry, too.

When did you first decide to start a blog?

I started my blog almost 4 years ago, during my junior year of high school. Now I’m currently a sophomore at the University of Richmond. Before I made my site, I had an Instagram account where I would post mirror pictures of my outfits. As my pictures got better and my following grew, I decided to turn my Instagram into a blog. At the time, I was obsessed with blogs and really inspired by what these women were doing. That definitely gave me the push to start my own.

What is your favorite part of blogging?

My favorite part of blogging is definitely the fact that I get to meet so many amazing, inspiring women working in the fashion industry. Whether it is the owner of a store, other bloggers, or girls who read my blog, the connections I’ve been able to make are priceless!

What draws you to the Sweetest Stitch Brand?

I love how easy the pieces are to wear! You can take some of the pieces from day to night and still look fab!

What are five holiday essentials everyone needs?

  • A comfy pair of Christmas pajamas for lounging around the house.
  • The perfect Christmas playlist - must include tons of Michael Buble.
  • A good red lipstick for all of your Holiday party looks!
  • Hot Chocolate...and lots of it!
  • A cozy blanket scarf and pom pom hat - I wear mine every day!


Who are your favorite bloggers to follow?

My favorite bloggers are Julia from Gal Meets Glam, Jenny from Margo & Me, and Carly from The College Prepster. I read so many blogs, but I really identify with the style of these women and the content they post!

What is your favorite Sweetest Stitch item on the site?

I’m loving the ‘Gray to Meet You’ top and the ‘Ruffle with It’ top! They’re both so cute!

What is your favorite sweet treat?

I could eat pistachio macarons all day, everyday...they’re my favorite! But I’m also a huge fan of anything that has chocolate! And kettle corn! The list goes on and on...

Tell us about your favorite holiday activity?

Every year we always have a day of baking! My whole family will be in the kitchen all day long simply baking tons of sweets. The day will end with us watching a Christmas movie and eating the treats we just made!
