Name: JULIE ANDERSON
It’s hard for me to quantify my occupation as I wear many hats. A chameleon in life and professionally I think the best title for me regarding occupation would be Creative. I work in front of the camera as a fashion model / actress and I work behind the scenes as the publisher of Feminine Collective. I work on myself as a writer of poetry. I work every waking minute as a mother. A Jill of all trades… that’s me.
Describe your beauty look:
My beauty look — Joan Jett. Period. Smudged black eyeliner, a bit of bed head hair and I’m literally ready to rock ‘n roll.
Five things you can't live without:
My computer, iPhone, mascara, toothbrush, and my children.
Who is your style icon?
I don’t really have a definitive icon. I gravitate, and wish to emulate the style of Parisien women. They do the "disheveled want to be rock goddess” look chic and effortless.
What inspired you to start Feminine Collective?
The idea for Feminine Collective started forming during a season in personal hell. I was living in Paris and was at a loss. I came across a Brene Brown Ted Talk on vulnerability. Her thoughts started an inner dialogue. I came to the conclusion that the life that I enjoy living has many facets and numerous lessons. I realized that the best conversations that I have had have been with my sisters from around the world… the ones that I have met along the way. Our conversations are always authentic, raw and unfiltered. We are vulnerable. That vulnerability in my opinion was missing in our world of “fake”. So with a great deal of help from my friends Feminine Collective was born.
