Jess Graves

Atlanta, Ga Usa

Jess Graves, a creative director in her past life, is now a full-time writer and editor living in Atlanta, Georgia. She writes mostly about style, music, chefs and alcoholic beverages. Her bylines include Southern Living, Town & Country, Garden & Gun, Eidé, and a monthly column in Atlanta magazine. Southern Living named her one of the "75 Most Stylish Southerners" and one of "2015's Bloggers to Watch". Most recently, Food & Wine named her one of "5 Food & Fashion Bloggers to Follow". She's also been in Vogue once or twice.

The Love List is a digital lifestyle publication that has been examining the heart of Southern style through food, fashion, music, booze and art for ten years. It has been called "one of the blogs that started it all" by Barney's New York and was most recently named one of Town & Country's 7 favorite blogs.

In March of 2015, The Love List started fresh, shifting from a single-voice blog to a full-format digital magazine with a team of editors, photographers and contributing writers. There are two mailings per month, which go out first to subscribers (sign up here): the first, a monthly issue featuring four long-form feature stories on the subjects of art, music, style, people and food/booze - all with a Southern slant. The second, a mailing dubbed "Playlist + Market" which culls together the best of the month's Market page features and debuts a new playlist, one of the site's most popular features. The Love List recently expanded into video, debuting "The Love List Presents", a one-take live music series from great Southern artists.

Jess is the proud owner of a hammock and a rescue mutt (mostly golden retriever) named Maggie. She guards her Gram Gram's pimento cheese recipe with her life.
