Who are you and what is your passion?
My name is Jess I am a full time content creator for the community and I love what I do! I run my own videography & photography businesses and dedicate all my social media’s to helping women in the queer community.
You have 60 seconds to put together an outfit. What do you wear?
black pants, either a white or black top with high top shoes and a hat.
What's your #1 tip for putting together a cohesive look?
a good tip is to always have monochrome tops & bottoms so that way layering and matching is a breeze.
What's your current favorite article of clothing?
every LGBT clothing brand that my friends hand craft are my favorite! I can’t choose one
How does clothing fit into your every day life?
my sense of style is very representative of who I am. It reflects my mood, embraces my masculinity, and allows me to feel confident and comfortable in the world.
What's a style or trend that you just don't understand? What's a style or trend you wish you could bring back?
I don’t understand most trends just because I am not a trend person.. I like to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Like the hype around Jordan’s is beyond me especially the cost. But I definitely wish we could bring back things like parachute pants even though it feels like most older trends are relevant today regardless.
Who do you look at for fashion inspo or advice?
I think I blindly study my fly friends around me and my past outfits. I’m an observer so if I see something I like I’ll put it in the back of my brain for later. But most of the time when I’m putting together an outfit I am changing multiple times in the mirror until it feels right.
Where can we find you?
you can find me on twittier, IG, Tiktok and YouTube @ jkiillem!
