Woman Crush Wednesdays – JessicaOutoftheCloset!

Woman Crush Wednesdays

We are so incredibly lucky to work alongside so many amazing women in the Vintage community. This week we are joined by our favourite YouTuber, blogger and vintage fashion enthusiast – the beautiful Jessicaoutofthecloset ! So without further ado, lets look into why she is such a wonderful inspiration! Maddison 40's floral swing dress1. Hi Jessica! We know you are a big fan of Collectif clothing! We’d love to know if you had pick one style from Collectif to wear forever, what would you choose?
Difficult choice… I love all the 1950’s style, but if I had to choose I would have to say the Vintage Pearl Coat, I have it in 2 different colours!

2. We are also huge fans of yours too of course! Not only for your style but your inspiring  YouTube content. In many of your videos you touch upon your disabilities which affect your day-to-day life. Do you have any helpful words for dealing with disabilities on those days that are tougher than others?
When I am having horrific pain I just repeat to myself ‘this too will pass’ because it always gets better, trust me. Find the fun and give yourself a break but at the same time keep achievable goals and just go for them!

3. As we mentioned, we are in love with your gorgeous, classic style. Who are your vintage style inspirations?
I definitely find a lot of inspiration in classic movie stars. I particularly love Grace Kelly and Rita Hayworth.

4. What’s your number one print from Collectif for spring?
The Maddison 40’s floral, my swing dress is gorgeous!

5. What are your three favourite pieces in your closet right now?
The Bridal Faye Brocade Rose swing dress (because they are not only for brides!), the Love Potion bag from Lulu Hun and one of the big floppy bows that I came back from Malaysia with.

6. What would you love to see in the future from Collectif?
I would like to see Collectif branch out into lingerie! I think it would be very exciting.

7. As June is pride month we of course would love to know how you have celebrated this – any highlights or favourite moments from the past month?
My Pride gifs where made into a Moment on Twitter, that was interesting! I obviously have to mention my trip to Los Angeles and attending VidCon for the first time, it was so lovely to meet so many fellow LGBTQ+ YouTubers.

8. You have a shared Instagram with your wife @Jessieandclaud (#couplegoals!) – how long have you been married and do you have any advice for newlywed couples?
Claudia and I have been married for a year and 9 months, we got married in September 2016. If we had to give any advice to newlyweds we would say that nothing is more important than your partnership. Never go to sleep on an argument and make each other laugh.Bridal collection

9. Tell us a funny story from your childhood.
I once lost my doll on a ferry and run around saying that I lost a baby so they put the entire ferry on red alert. Fortunately my mother managed to sort out the confusion and then one of the crew members then turned up with my doll wrapped in a monogramed blanket.

10. Last but not least, a random question to finish with – if you could be any animal, what would you choose and why?
I would be an Eagle so I could fly and nothing would eat me.


Thank you Jessica for being big, happy, ray of sunshine to our day and for continuing to inspire us! Join us next week where we take a look at the amazing and talented women behind Collectif clothing!

Love the Collectif team
