Switching from a fashion blog to a magazine was perceived like a big career stepping stone by the public. Weiß quickly opted for doing her own project again, though: Journelles.
The incident makes us think of Susie Bubble. The excentric blooger worked in the online editorial of Dazed&Confused for a short time, however decided against working a renowned magazine to do pursue her own project. Her fashion blog. Anzeichen des Wandels.
Katja from LesMads spoke to Jessica Weiß about her comeback. A sympathetic move. They talk about the idea behind Journelles, the German fashion blogosphere, and the success criteria of a blog.
A very entertaining interview and therefore our recommendation for today’s good read:
LesMads: Congratulations to your new website Journelles, it turned out very well! How does it feel to be back as a fulltime-blogger, or Blogazine owner after a one-year break?
Jessica Weiß: Thanks very much! It feels great being my own boss again. Leaving LesMads feels like it’s been much longer than ‘only’ a year – so it’s great being featured now at my ‘preveious home’.

Since we were bored recently, we decided to take a stroll to the Bauhaus archive and were hanging out in front of their door.
In contrast to the occasion, we wore two de-conceptualised outfits, which by coincidence looked like the ones lying in the rented Lithuanian Mercedes. David was wearing a T-shirt and jeans by WEEKDAY, shoes by RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS, a jeans-jacket by DIESEL and a vintage-hair-cut from the 90s. I wore a black T-shirt by BOSS (Turkey fake), pants by G-STAR RAW, tennis-socks by H&M, a silk-bomber-jacket by DIESEL, shoes by PALLADIUM (of-course the model, that Brad Pitt is wearing all the time) and sunglasses by LESPECS.
After a few minutes we were chased by the guard and his dog (it was a leashed sheep dog) away from the court. Apparently we did not fit the concept.
We have been aware of it for a long time: ‘Food’ is the new ‘Fashion’
The sneakers-producer Reebok had similar thoughts, and released bacon on the market. Justification: ‘The CrossFit-community loves bacon.’
And since the CrossFit-community is an important market for Reebok, one can get bacon with his sneaker.
We ask ourselves now, when Adidas will release it’s own sausage with mustard. Since the soccer-community loves sausages with mustard. And they are an important sneaker-market. Or Nike it’s own hot dog, because of the football-community.
Well, the possibilities of this new market are endless. Beautiful, new world!
You cant go wrong with a black sneaker that looks like a snubnosed revolver. Our pick of the day Adidas ZX 500 2.0 black snake
A few weeks ago - one recognises easily because of my much darker, much loner and much more felted hair - we had a wild shooting with the photographer Marlen Stahlhuth and her team, in the most beautiful clothes from Herzogaurenach. Of course we wore nothing but ADIDAS (and as mentioned, felted hair).
The complete photo-series is going to be released in August in the ADIDAS ORIGINALS magazine – and we are already excited, to see what we look like. For sure verrrryyy sporty.
For the moment, you (and us! and us!) will have to be pleased with the so-called (ugh!) ‘behind the scenes’-pictures. But maybe that is enough for a quick Five-against-Willy.
