Hello


First, let me say how happy I am that you've somehow made it to my little corner of the internet. Next, I know whenever I visit a new blog, I immediately start looking for the "about" section to find out more about the real person behind the post, so here is my attempt at a proper introduction.


My name is Erin and I started "Currently Coveting" in 2010 because I consider myself a girl that likes to express herself creatively, but before the blog, I had no outlet, so I decided to make my own.

In the very beginning, it's purpose was to document all the details of parties I was throwing myself into planning. Now, the content has evolved mainly to fashion, food, and beauty (but I totally go off the grid like all the time so don't get too used to any one thing happening around here).

I was born a Jersey girl but now love living in the gorgeous Washington, D.C. area. I worked briefly as a Make-Up Artist for Bobbi Brown before I realized I was uncomfortable completely abandoning my Bachelors of Science earned from James Madison University. Now I work in the corporate world, which is why a majority of the outfits here are office-style.

As far as my personal fashion goes, I don't do not consider myself any kind of expert. I simply showcase my personal choices (not all of them are awesome). Personally, I am more interested in seeing how someone really wore something and where the heck they went whilst wearing it, so that's my goal. I gravitate toward those who repeat pieces, find great bargains, and really explain a little bit about their style choices, it's what brings me back, so that's what I aim to do here. I can promise you that everything you see on this blog is something I really wore to work, brunch, out with the girls, etc.

I'm your average girl with simple style. I dig high heels, baking pretty things for my favorite people, overly obsessed with my cat (#ellathefluffernugget yes, you can look her hashtag up), a lover of science and sarcasm, will try any recipe involving cream cheese, bachelorette party aficionado, nail polish & mascara hoarder, craft-doer, tone deaf karaoke singer, holiday enthusiast, and great bargain finder. I hope you enjoy all the things I am "coveting" from day to day as much as I do.

Love,
Erin
