This Saturday we got a chance to sit down one-on-one with the beautiful Kristin Cavallari, 26. Kristin is formally known as the "bitch" from Laguna Beach and The Hills, but let me tell you she is NO bitch. She is on the other hand, one of the SWEETEST most down-to-earth stars I personally have ever met. Not only is she sweet, but very approachable to all her fans and even media alike. Kristin was making an appearance at the Von Maur in Lombard's Yorktown Center for her new shoe line for shoe giant Chinese Laundry. So the first question we asked this entrepreneur, reality star turned mama was, how did this collection and union with Chinese laundry all begin? "This has been a dream of mine since I was 19, I was even blogging for Chinese Laundry for a few years hoping that I would be offered a line. Then it happened."
Her Spring 2013 collection is so classic and very versatile a must to any shoe collection. Also, a big shout out to her Copertina shoe in melon, you all might want to check that one out. So which one does Kristin prefer? "Which is your favorite shoe from your collection." With a giant smile this gorgeous sweetie stated that her bootie was her favorite piece from her collection because you can use it all year around. "You can wear it in the winter, spring, summer and fall; making it a very useful shoe."
Kristin also stated that she now as a jewelry line that she sells in Kitson and glamboutique.com. I personally loved her safety pin earrings that she was wearing that is OFFERED at glamboutique for only $15 (what a steal). Not only is she extremely beautiful but also very svelte...just 6 MONTHS AFTER giving birth to her first, Camden Cutler. How did she do it?? I personally gained TONS of weight and still till today haven't lost it all. So like all women everywhere with extra baby lbs I asked her how did she do it?? "I'm naturally a healthy eater so I kept that up during my pregnancy. I only gained 25lbs during my pregnancy and kept working out during my pregnancy. I don't beat myself up over it and I also breastfeed. You can burn up to 500 calories a day just breastfeeding."
While chatting about breastfeeding we asked how many more children does she and her finance Jay Cutler want. "Many more, 4 is good." I asked about having a football team of little Cutler's, the response was a refreshing laugh. Kristin also went on about how accessories are her passion and if her jewelry line is successful (which I don't doubt, it definitely will be), then she is expanding on to clothing. She is also having a line of pursues, which she describes as universally simplistic. Kristin is all about creating effortless, chic looking accessories that are classic and timeless pieces. So what's in store for her Fall 2013/2014 line? Boots and booties!! Lots of reds, icy whites (all different shades of white), and blue.
So going back to acting, Kristin recently has been on the League on FX but isn't planning on going back to Television full time because she'll never see her Jay or little Camden. She also shoots down rumors about a reality show about her life with Jay and the baby. "We have been offered a reality show plenty of times" she stated with a laugh but is stern about not doing one. On the other hand, "I wouldn't mind designing baby shoes or apparel." I wonder what's next for her...(hint, hint).
