Growing up, the two of us had our own version of wrestling matches. We called it Mo and Champ. Most likely, we intended it to be Pro and Champ, but Chandra mispronounced it and it stuck. Mo and Champ primarily consisted of one of us throwing a pillow at the other before we both dissolved into giggles, and whichever sister was able to compose herself enough to pin the other one down was declared the winner. The Von Erichs we were not! Roughhousing was not really in our wheelhouse. We were much more interested in dress up and playing beauty shop, and for better or worse, not much has changed. We can’t say that our style has always been on point – hello matching heart print swimsuits! – but we have always had fun with it!
We both love fashion, and though we definitely have two different styles, we are always on the same page with what works for each of us. With Chastiti’s weekdays filled with suits and clothes that befit a litigation attorney and busy mom of three, she loves putting together styles that can be modified to fit both of those worlds. Chandra, an attorney who works from home, has a little more freedom in choosing her daily outfits and enjoys creating unique and on-trend looks that will take her comfortably from the car pool lane to committee meetings. We constantly use each other as stylist, springboard, and mirror. Clothes and accessories float between our homes, as do texts with “Does this look ok?” Sisters are honest, and we genuinely want each other to look and feel special, whatever the occasion.
But fashion and playing dress up is not our only creative outlet. We are always inspired to come up with fun party themes for our five kiddos, as well as dinner parties with our friends. While Chandra is the chef of the family and Chastiti cannot scramble eggs (it’s true!), we both love to plan menus, incorporating specialty drinks every opportunity we get! Working on all of the details and seeing our ideas take shape is always exciting. Together, we have hosted and collaborated on dozens of parties, and Chastiti has even taken it a step further by chairing multiple fundraising galas and overseeing every detail. Between the two of us, we have renovated three homes and have worked with each other to create styles that reflect our personalities and those of our family for our homes. We both strive to make our homes cute and chic while still feeling warm and inviting, with no rooms off limits to our kids and their friends.
After collaborating on so many ideas from fashion to food to décor, we were eager to work on something together that would allow us to show you our visions. The idea took shape after we had been fans of and following many blogs for a while. Both passionate writers who love sharing our ideas, it seemed like the logical next step. Our goal is to develop a blog that captures how, as one, we do just fine; however, together, we compliment each other’s originality.
We hope you enjoy this journey of two sisters, two styles, and one blog!
