instagram Feb 08, 2016

We all love learning mundane things about the people who fascinate us, right? So in an effort to tap into our shameless voyeuristic tendencies, we started a Q&A series with the people of Instagram who tug at our heartstrings.

This week, one of our all-time favorite influencers, Jessi Frederick from the Stylish Gambino, is answering our super tough DH questions. It's kind of impossible not to fall in love with her. You'll see.

If you're a minimalism aficionado but have yet to hear of Jessi Frederick, prepare for your life to change. She's pretty much mastered the art of clean style and has an eye for curation like no other.

Her aesthetic is ultra specific, sharp, refined, and leaves no doubt as to who she is and what she is trying to convey, making her Instagram gallery incredibly refreshing and, not gonna lie, so addicting. Her very rare breed of starkness is alluring beyond the majority of what can be found on Instagram today.

Her grid is peppered with interesting close-ups of inanimate objects, but the photos she posts from her blog series, usually shot by her photographer-in-crime Daniela, are pure magic. Even better is that we can also attest to the fact that her radness translates to her personality; she's genuinely all-around awesome.

Read on to feast your eyes on some of her beautiful photos and to learn about her style icons, her guilty pleasure and her snacking persuasion.
