First and foremost to quote Amy Poehler on Mean Girls, Chloe aka 'ChloBear', "keeps me young!" She's as fun as she is intelligent (and when you read about her occupation you'll get the idea.) Chloe is witty and wise beyond her years and I'm completely young at heart so even with our decade age difference we were instantly connected and laughing together non-stop, always looking forward to work when working together at Her Tern Boutique in Anchorage! She recently launched her blog, cashmereandcoldbrew.com, and just like everything else regarding Chloe, I was so impressed and uber excited to share her talent and knack for creative styling with THE WORLD!
