Beauty on the Streets: Erin from Calivintage

March 8, 2010

Erin Hagstrom

Name: Erin Hagstrom

Age: 27

Occupation: student, blogger, etsy seller (

Location: Oakland, CA


“I’m a California native with a love for everything vintage. I write a vintage style blog featuring my daily outfits and I sell vintage clothing on etsy in addition to being a full time student.”

My style is: vintage, casual, California.

My favorite designer right now is: Do I really have to pick just one? I always love Chloé, but I am in love with Miu Miu spring 2010 and Proenza Schouler pre-fall 2010. I also always enjoy APC, Built by Wendy, LOVER, and Dear Creatures.

People usually compliment my: haircut. Thanks to Shannon Dean at Revamp Salon in San Francisco!

My favorite makeup tip: Don’t overdo it. Beware of too much foundation.

Current beauty product obsession: Shu Uemura liquid eyeliner. It’s like a calligraphy brush; I can get the perfect line every time and the refillable pen is a plus!

But I also can’t live without: Benefit Benetint. It gives you the perfect rosy glow for cheeks and lips. I’ve been using it since I was 15.

My favorite scent right now is: vanilla. I’m a simple girl when it comes to fragrance. I only ever wear a single note.

I love wearing my hair: short and sweet, zero maintenance.

For my skin, I: use a good facial scrub a few times a week because I have oily skin and I’m prone to breakouts. Right now, I’m using Origins Modern Friction— It smells like lemon cookies!

People might be surprised to know: that despite my appearances, I’ve got quite a wild streak in me. I curse like a sailor and can probably drink you under the table!

My favorite hair product is: Bumble and Bumble Sumotech.

I don’t understand people who don’t like: Burritos!

The restaurant I can never get tired of is: House of Curries on College Ave in Berkeley. I literally go there once a week. It’s good, cheap food in a casual setting. I recommend the Bhaingan Bharta and the Veggie Korma.

Though I can make a mean: dessert. I’m a certified pastry chef and cake decorator. You name it and I can make it. I’m partial to éclairs myself.

What inspires me: I’m inspired by everything: blogs, street style sites, designer collections, old movies, art, photography, and people walking down the street. My current celebrity style crushes are Alexa Chung, Chloë Sevigny, and Michelle Williams.

    For your factoid of the day… do you know what benetint was made for originally before it was marketed as a liquid blush/tint?
