Birthday Q&A: Lauren

Today we celebrate the birthday of our very own founder and head designer, Lauren. She is the brains behind Fellow Threads, meaning none of this would exist if it weren’t for her. I can still remember when our little business was just an idea. Since then we’ve designed for bands, donated a substantial amount back to charity, traveled with Vans Warped Tour, met so many incredible people and launched our third collection. It hasn’t always been easy, but it keeps getting better and it wouldn’t have been possible without Lauren. So, thank you, Lauren, for your creativity and courage to do something outside the box.


Now, onto the questions!

What is the last song you listened to? “R U Crazy” by Conor Maynard, my latest and greatest British music find.

If there was ever a movie made about your life, which actress would you want to play you? Reese Witherspoon or Kate Hudson, who also happen to be my consistent fashion inspirations.

What is your go-to Starbucks drink? Double tall nonfat toffee nut latte with whip.

What is your all-time favorite Disney movie? The Little Mermaid! First movie I ever saw in theaters too.

What is your favorite trend at the moment? Knee/thigh socks with skirts and shorts for winter. Cute for casual or dressing up, and shows the world that cold weather doesn’t get in your way!

If you could only receive one gift today, what would it be? World peace. No, but really. That’d be nice.

Make sure you are following Lauren on Twitter and Instagram, and don’t forget to wish her a happy birthday!

Four Answers



“For me, it’s not necessarily a particular piece of clothing or outfit, but more a style choice. When I want to feel comfortable and confident, no questions asked, I go with black. There’s nothing like an all black outfit. My absolute favorite combination is my black H&M pullover, leggings, black leather knee-high boots, topped off with my gold-rimmed Ray-Bans. Boom. Black is classic and easy and won’t ever go out of style.” — Ashley



“The go-to staple of my closet, especially for fall, is my oversized camo jacket. I wear it with cutoff shorts and flats on warmer days or leggings and boots when the weather gets cooler. I can dress it up or down, and the neutral colors allow for easy pairing with denim, black, brown or almost any color. If you’re like me, fall is all about comfort. My favorite looks for the season are ones that make me feel great without sacrificing style.” — Lauren



“Flannels! I always try to pair a flannel with a cute, stylish outfit. Flannels are always a good pop of color to an outfit and they can be dressed up or down. My all-time favorite flannel is my black BDG one from Urban Outfitters. It’s comfortable and always makes me love my outfit. I pair it with some knee-high socks and boots and I’m good to go.”  — Annie


disney“My go-to favorite outfit includes black leggings and boots. I can easily dress it up with a longer shirt layered with a shorter jacket or a cardigan, and always with lots of accessories: necklaces and bracelets. The same leggings and boots can be casual and cozy with a bulky sweater, or a crew neck and scarf.” — Lynne

Birthday Q&A: Annie

happybdayannie1Today is a special day because it’s our model and accessories designer’s birthday! We did a small question and answer session with her to celebrate her day, and also so our readers, friends, and customers can get to know her a little bit better.

ANNIE, happy birthday! I hope it has been fantastic so far. If you could receive only one gift today, what would it be? A one way ticket to Disney World for sure.

What’s the last CD you listened to? Fashionably Late by Honor Society.

If there was ever a movie made about your life, which actress would you want to play you? Kristen Wiig, because my life is absolutely hysterical. I feel like she would do a really great job of capturing my sense of humor and showing how funny my life really is.

What is your go-to Starbucks drink? Definitely a grande White Chocolate Mocha. I’m kind of addicted to it.

What are you currently obsessed with? It’s not really a what, it’s more of a who. I am absolutely obsessed with James Hinchcliffe. He is beautiful and I love Indy Car, so it works out.

What is your all-time favorite Disney movie? It’s a tie between Robin Hood and Peter Pan. I could watch both of them over and over again and never get bored.

We join up with the Warped Tour in a few weeks. What are you most excited about? I’m looking forward to getting to meet new people and to show everyone what Fellow Threads is all about.
