Growing up in the Midwest, I found myself clipping my favorite styles out of the latest magazines and creating inspiration boards. My friends and I would recreate our favorite celebrity beauty looks and outfits; taking silly photos and documenting our style from our bedrooms. Helping friends and family shop and organize their closets, I quickly discovered my own aesthetic and began to define my personal style.
I followed my heart to law school, where I pursued my academic goals but felt my creativity was stifled. One day while working in the law library, the idea for a blog to house my passions struck me and I instantly began scribbling down ideas and dreams in a notebook. Torts and a Tiara began as a creative outlet and a way to chronicle my life. After graduating law school, studying Fashion Marketing at FIT in New York, and studying Beauty Business at FIDM in Los Angeles, I moved to Denver to work for a skincare and cosmetics company. My blog slowly began to gain momentum and consume more of my time.
I began working with my favorite brands, such as Bond No. 9, Julep, HSN, One Kings Lane, and Kendra Scott. Soon I became a publisher for rewardStyle, an invite-only monetization company for top-tier digital stylists around the world. And after 1.2 million views, I realized my “hobby” needed a new home to grow with me.
The Cashmere Gypsy
Always on the go, I decided to create a space designed by my personal values. A website where my readers could take inspiration from travel destinations and styled home décor. A place where I could curate classic, feminine looks that mix luxury pieces with inexpensive items. A space where I could share my favorite skincare discoveries and teach a few of my beauty secrets along the way. Most importantly, I sought a positive dialogue with other women to share ideas and gain insight. The Cashmere Gypsy was born.
What Is A Cashmere Gypsy?
A Cashmere Gypsy is a modern woman. She’s busy, on the go… And she loves it. She isn’t defined by one role or one career. She is strong, motivated, driven to be the best person she can be. She takes inspiration from everyday life and she sets her own goals. She’s intelligent. She carefully curates her life, filling it with beautiful, meaningful things. She invests in classic staples and saves on trendy items with less longevity. Her home is a reflection of herself and her adventures. Rather than wearing her makeup like a mask, she uses it to bring out her inner beauty and give herself an extra boost of power. Instead of competing with other women, she uplifts her female peers. She contributes and shares, encourages and participates. She is classic, feminine, strong, and worldly. She is like no other. She is… You are… We are… The Cashmere Gypsy.
