Curtsy makes it easy for you to monetize one of your biggest investments- your closet.

Best Things Come In Pairs: Meet The #GirlBoss Twins Taking Charleston By Storm

IMG_2533

These two fabulous twins Kenzie and Carol moved to Charleston two years ago with nothing. Here’s what happened next. 

PS. Their closet is open and yours to borrow on Curtsy! If you don’t have the app, get it here:

Kenzie and Carol had just graduated from school and wanted to get out of Utah and try living in a different state. They lived for a year with their best friend, who was in her senior year at College of Charleston.

IMG_2527

They’ve always lived together, even after Kenzie got married. They plan on keeping it that way too, they’ve always been best friends.

IMG_2537

When they walked into Alley’s Sports Bar, a local favorite, to ask for a job, the owner was amused. They’d have to be hired as a package deal, they told him. They were hired.

IMG_2524

They share a car and try to work the same shifts. Customers are confused on the regular. You can see why.

IMG_2526Friends had always told them that they needed to blog about their lives. One year ago, they finally took the leap.

IMG_2535

They didn’t share it at all, though. They were afraid of what other people might think.

IMG_2525

It would still be private had they not sent a link to their mom, who shared it on Facebook. “Alright, I guess we have to put it out in public now.” Thanks Mom.

IMG_2529

After a few months, it started to take off. Their Instagram grew, more people read the blog, and people even started recognizing them on the street.

IMG_2538

They experimented with different styles, photography and writing. They started getting recognized around town and at work.

IMG_2539

This girl wanted to take a picture with us at work. That was very humbling because you don’t think people even look at it. It’s really cool to see that people read it and recognize us.

IMG_2523

The blog has opened many doors for the duo. Companies have been reaching out with promotions and sending free swag. They were even invited to Charleston Fashion Week.

IMG_2534

Their advice for people starting out? Just be yourself.

It’s always hard to figure out what you want to do with your life. We still don’t know but realized that we want to keep going in this direction, working with people and companies that mean something to us and do something for the world.

We’re Obsessed: Dallas It-Girl Creates “Dupre Designs”

This Dallas It-Girl has been setting the trend for fashion jewelry across the South. We’re obsessed with her classical-chic designs and wanted to introduce you to the designer. Meet the face of Dupre Designs and see how Marielle makes it all happen.

The Looks of Dupre Designs

The Spring Collection is to die for. Here is Marielle’s story and some of our Dupre favorites…

Marielle started making jewelry out of her Ole Miss dorm freshman year and has been killing it since.

“When I was younger, I loved beading. I used to make my dad take me to Michael’s Craft Store to buy beads and I was determined to design jewelry even in middle school.”

My family has always supported me. “My mom helps me bead and package my designs. We always lose track of time and end up staying up until 2 a.m. I have even taken my dad to market before”

Now, Marielle’s style inspirations come from a mix of Coco Chanel and Beyonce- the perfect combo of classic and bold and vibrant.

Her new line has been inspired by her travels. Amsterdam, Belgium, London, Germany, and of course, our own, New Orleans. This summer, she is continuing her travels for more inspiration and more fun pieces for us!

Marielle is also working on releasing a leather collection with lots of metallic leathers, neutral leathers, and gemstones.

She says that this line has pushed her to think outside of the box and try to make new designs with natural materials for the perfect bohemian/ beach goddess look.

Marielle’s dream is to continue designing after college- but she’s got even bigger plans. Marielle plans on continuing her designs with purses, sunglasses, and shoes!
