Name: Erin Hagstrom

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.
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.
