Meet Lauren

Meet Lauren, first time homeowner and ModCloth’s Product Launch Coordinator.

Name: Lauren
Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA
Alma mater: University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Desert island necessities: “My cell phone, my husband – no, wait – my dog, and some lemonade, to stay cool!”

In December 2009, Lauren and her husband, Mike, ensured themselves a happy holiday season, thanks to the purchase of their very own home!

“We both grew up in this area, so after a few years of living in other cities, we decided it was time to settle down back home,” said Lauren.

As the proud owner of a two-story abode in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Lauren has quickly realized that property ownership comes with plenty of fun challenges.

“We’ve repainted a few rooms so far, but it’s been really tough selecting colors  – each day I have a new vision of how it should look. Now that it’s warmer out, I’ve been really focused on decorating the outdoors!”

From rebuilding perilous outdoor staircases and fences to planning for summer BBQ parties in their spacious back yard, both Lauren and her husband are enjoying the perks of owning their own place. “We love to have space to stretch out, and our dog, Tony, a seven year-old Labrador mix, loves to wander around outside,” she says. Lauren is currently working on planting her first garden, which will include tomatoes, herbs, peppers, and flowers! Good luck, Lauren!
