Thread Conscious: Celebrating the Joy of Fashion, Food & Faith!
Since launching in 2009, Thread Conscious has grown as a brand as I have grown personally, professionally and spiritually. It’s my hope that what you find here both inspires and empowers you to live your best life, one that’s full of beauty, creativity and love.
I want to extend a special welcome to my friends and new writing contributors, Kelley Gaugler and Eric Weitzel, who will be bringing a unique perspective to this year’s Fashion Week in Austin, as well as street style, decor, cuisine and more. I admire both of them, not only for their superb style, but also for their generous spirits. Welcome to the Thread Conscious Team, Kelley and Eric! ~Nik
Personal style: I fell in love with London street style when I lived there, so it is rare to see me in anything other than black, white, or (shades) of grey. More is more in my opinion…from studded accessories to stacked bracelets to the perfect pair of over-the-top shoes. I am (slowly) experimenting with adding pops of color into my wardrobe, so stay tuned! Above all else, I believe life is too short to wear boring clothes.
When I am not tearing through issues of Vogue cover-to-cover, I enjoy seeing live music, running, and traveling to far-away places.
Eric Weitzel: Technophile. Culinary Connoisseur. Writer.
Personal Style: I love bright colors, color blocking and mixing colors in a way that is both delightful and unexpected.
Besides fashion, writing is one of my favorite creative outlets and I enjoy the challenge of conveying the richness of life through the written word.
Food creation is my favorite pastime. I can rarely be seen without a crafted cocktail or artisanal cuisine in hand. When I am not eating it, I am talking about it, or dreaming of my next culinary creation.
