Van Cooley, Portland Oregon
Becoming a mom has been by far the hardest job I’ve ever had. Juggling a
career and a business with motherhood is doubly hard. And maintaining me, the girl,
is a triple challenge. I’m determined to make it work. I’ll share my ideas about style
and thrifting on this blog and would love to have conversations with you! I try to
post once at least once a week.
I’m a thirty-something, independent graphic designer, mother to the most amazing,
almost 3 year-old boy and married to Hubby 5 years (together 9 years). We share
a major L-O-V-E for candy and drink our coffee black. The majority of my closet is
vintage and near new, second-hand items with a boot collection that is ridiculous.
This girl loves a good hunt… a good shoe… handbags… and thrifting! It allows me
to experiment with new looks without breaking the bank.
Each season, I pick out trends that I like and incorporate them into my existing
wardrobe of highly versatile pieces, to make them practical for everyday. My style
changes with the latest obsessions (and there are many), but comfort is key. If I can’t
do my signature robot moves or chase after my son, forget it. I’m real easy-going
and a complete dork. This blog is a collection of my favorite looks. In real life, I often
wear repeat outfits or remix same items, not every day is something to sing about so
I don’t post. Goals? To share with you that staying fashionable doesn’t have to cost a lot
of money. You have a closet full of clothes and with a little bit of effort and creativity, it
can go from good to great. I hope to help inspire ideas!
Thank you for reading.
