For the Love of ClutchesAugust 28, 2013
I follow Rocquelle Porch, a.k.a. Consider Me Lovely, on all her social media channels. The first time I clicked through a link that came down my twitter timeline to an outfit blog post she did about two years ago, I was all in. My first impression: I like her. I favorited her blog and went there often for her outfit and DIY posts ... I still do. She was consistent; a plus. She was interesting; another plus. And she was vibrant and believable ... Rocquelle struck me as a woman who enjoyed her life. We were becoming friends in my head. Social networking has a way of not only making you feel like you know the people you chat with day in and day out — virtually — but it also causes you feel as if you've known them all along. How you know you've transcended a mere social media connection is when you move from calling them by their handle and addressing them by their real name.
I've admired every sewing and accessory project Rocquelle has shared on her site and so when she announced that she was taking that talent on the road with the launch of her brand Clutched and Covered, all I could say was, "yes."
