When did Bramblewood Fashion start?
Bramblewood Fashion was started back in August of 2009, and it was just a place for me to share my latest sewing projects, dabble with outfit & fashion posts, and sharing of any random news that struck my fancy. As time went on and my sense of styling and fashion grew, the “What I Wore” posts kinda took over the blog, and BF moved from a more crafty/sewing-type blog to a modest fashion blog. Now with my growing interest in beauty, thanks to YouTube & working at Ulta Beauty, I have been incorporating many more beauty type posts into BF.
What does BF stand for?
The name itself doesn’t have any deep meaning or anything, it was just a name that came to me after weeks of praying and googling for a blog name. Personally, we stand for showing ladies of all ages how to dress modestly, yet fashionably — without ever looking frumpy.
We also don’t stand for legalism, so you can kinda say that our tag line is: …fighting legalism one outfit at a time.
We believe that everyone needs to follow the guidelines that their husband/father set for their household, plus what God lays onto YOUR heart personally.
Modesty is also a heart matter, for if you don’t have a modest heart and spirit, no matter how conservative you dress you won’t be representing Christ with how you dress.
“For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.” — 1 Samuel 16:7
Who is behind BF?
Two sisters, Ashley & Gabrielle work behind the scenes for BF. Y’all see me the most [Ashley], since I’m the one who is most comfortable with blogging. I also reply to all of the emails, do all of the social media, edit the YouTube videos, and what ever else needs to be done.
Gaby does the photography for almost every outfit post, and has been doing so since day one. I’ve been pushing her to do more on the forefront of BF, and have encourage her to share more [when she first joined BF, she did more outfit posts & such], since y’all want to hear from her too.
Sometimes my other siblings help out with blog work too. When Gaby is at work and the weather is going to be bad that evening, I will have either Hanne-col, Abby, or our brother, Nathanael take outfit pictures for me. Also, Hanne-col likes to help with the filming of my fashion videos & making sure I’m in focus when filming YouTube videos with Gaby’s super nice camera.
