History of Baby J and Cupp

our relationship began three years ago when two weirdos were randomly placed in the same residential hall. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows when our paths first crossed. But after the shit show of freshman year had ended, so did our conflict, and thus a beautiful friendship was born. Our personal styles and artistic capabilities inspired and pushed one another to grow. Love and acceptance are what we embody, creating a peaceful and welcoming environment. So join us new friends, we would love to share this journey of life with you!

I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you who I am, well like my girl Britney says, “I’m not a girl, not yet a woman.” I haven’t fully discovered who I am yet, everyday I am influenced by the fast paced environment of Chicago where I currently reside. Three years ago I moved here to pursue my dream of designing clothes by attending Columbia College Chicago. This change of scenery definitely influenced my design aesthetic and personal style, and really pulled me into the world of sustainable and ethical fashion. When I lived in St.Louis I felt very restricted in most of what I did, some people expect you to act and look a certain way and if you don’t fit that mold you are judged for it, this is something I faced my whole life. Moving to Chicago was very freeing, it allowed me to find my voice and be bolder in everything I do, not just with fashion but in my entire life. I felt a release. Fashion has and always will be a part of my life but it's importance and necessity in my life became much greater. There is real beauty in way that a garment can tell a story. Clothing is a wearable representation of one’s innermost being. It speaks to the world around you, giving them a small glimpse of who you are, so make it an impactful one. Be whoever you want to be, don’t allow the judgements of world around you to dictate the person that you are. So, let your bad self shine, I do.

Hello all, Chicago gal here. I have been living in Chicago my whole life thus far. I have gained my personal style through my many trials and tribulations. I am very urban, and went through a heavy street style phase (not to say that it’s over). I am in love with fashion, because it is something that will come with me everywhere I go. It helps me to express who I am, without having to say a word. Whether rain or shine, there will always be something new to create. I am big on the music, the movement, and the fashion sectors of our Earth, and am a firm believer that we are all connected. With that, I am extremely pleased to be sharing this website and shop with all of you strangers out there. I have always dreamed of having a creative outlet such as this one, and am excited to see what’s to come for BarbieandBlondie. Welcome!
