Hello everyone, my name is Caitie Schlisserman and I am here because I am a fashion addict…nice to meet you! Fashion is in my blood. I remember when I was younger I would always sneak into my mom’s closet and try on her clothes and shoes, and prance around the house. The sound of the high heels on the floor echoed through my head, as if it were telling me that fashion was for me.
I was born and raised in a small city in California called Menlo Park. Pretty much there was nothing to do but shop and spend your money, or I mean your parent’s money. Trust me, I am not complaining! My family (mom, dad, and older sister) made sure that I had a memorable childhood, taught me right from wrong, and always encouraged me to follow my dreams. I love them more than anything, and can honestly say I have the best most loving family in the world.
I am so lucky that not just one, but both my parents supported me by letting me go to the Academy of Art in San Francisco, to pursue my love for fashion. Currently, I am a full time student studying fashion merchandising. I also work 4 days a week at a beautiful children’s boutique, Le Cirque Des Enfants, in downtown Menlo Park. I have been blessed with having a great boss and co-workers, who have taught me so much about having a boutique. I am so excited to see what my future has in store for me, and I hope everyone will enjoy the crazy roller coaster of my life.
