Meet The Muse Behind Cheeky's Photo Shoots

We stole some secrets from the fashion blogger (and label guru at Muse boutique), who's become the face of Cheeky Vintage.  
 
Have you ever modeled before?
I've never really modeled professionally. I guess you could say that my outfit posts on my blog, Adorn Yourself Accordingly, are a little like modeling. It was so much fun playing dress up with the Cheeky team! They are so fun loving and inspiring to be around. 
 
What is your best vintage find ever?
A pair of huge, gold lion's head earrings I found at Cheeky Vintage. They add the perfect amount of glam to any look and are really comfortable for huge clip-on earrings. I wear them at least once a week.
 
What's the secret to a good vintage find?
Finding that one-of-a-kind piece that you will treasure for years to come, and the piece must be able to mix in with your modern wardrobe with ease.
 
Who does your bun
I do! People ask me if I have a sock in there a lot. Here's how I do it - you can't have clean hair. Tease the bottom half of your hair until it's a huge triangle shape on your head. Then whip it up into a ponytail secured with a rubber band. Roll it around itself and secure with a few bobby pins. Use some L'Oreal Paris Elnett to tame the frizz from the Houston heat. And you're done!
 
What is your favorite trend this summer?
Black and white. I love the simplicity of the look, and it leaves room to mix in some amazingly colorful accessories, handbags and shoes.
 
What's the trick to staying fashionable in the Houston heat?
I think mixing patterns and prints to keep your looks interesting. Since we can't layer from May through September, I like to pair unexpected colors and patterns together to keep things chic in the heat.
