Meet Christen of Two Happy Hearts

Blogger of the Moment: Two Happy Hearts

Meet our latest Blogger of the Moment, Christen of Two Happy Hearts! Her swoon-worthy retro ensembles are sure to inspire, and, with her twin sister, Christen designs a clothing line. Christen calls Indiana home, which is the setting for her photos. But she’s only an hour from Chicago, and says she’d wear her namesake dress out on the town with her husband and friends. Make sure to peruse all of Christen’s ModCloth faves so you can steal her style!

What blogs do you read for inspiration?
A few of my daily reads are Here Comes the Sun, Kelli Murray, Vanilla & Lace, A Beautiful Mess, The Velvet Bird, DesignLoveFest, and Fancy Treehouse. But, I’m always looking through different blogs as a form of inspiration!

What’s your favorite thing about living in Indiana?
I’ve lived in Indiana for the past 11 years, so it feels like home to me. The peaceful life here has been so perfect for my husband and me to start our marriage off. But, we only live an hour from Chicago, so it’s the best of both worlds. We’re not far from the city lights, but we can still see the stars at night. (A little Avett Brothers reference there for those of you who listen to them!)

If you could go on a dream vacation, where would you travel?
So far, my favorite place in the world is New Zealand. My husband is from Auckland, so I’ve had the pleasure of visiting his magical country! I’m sure there will be lots more trips to NZ over the years, so some other dream vacation spots would include: Italy, Norway, France, and Iceland.

You’re also a designer–how did you get your start?
My twin sister and I wanted to collaborate on a creative project together. Since we both love fashion and have been sewing since we can remember (thanks to our mom and grandma), a clothing line was the perfect fit! We started in Fall/Winter 2011, and we’ve got big plans for the future! We’re currently working on designing children’s clothes! You can see our work on our website, Midnight and Dawn.

If someone were to play you in a movie, who would it be?
I would have to say Carey Mulligan! I adore her as an actress. I think she is such a classic beauty!

Who are your fashion icons?
The Olsens, Jenny Lewis, Zooey Deschanel, Edie Sedgwick, Audrey Hepburn, [and] Marilyn Monroe.

If you could live in the pages of a book, what book would it be?
Pretty much any Francesca Lia Block book. I would love to run through the streets of LA with feathers sewn in my hair and magical things happening around every corner!

Lastly, here’s how Christen said she would wear the Two Happy Hearts Dress:

Christen paired her pretty frock with the Bow to Stern Scarf in SeafoamUpwardly Mobile Satchel in Mint, Crowin’ Around Ring, and Play Us a Corduroy Heel. How would you wear Christen’s darling dress?

About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.

    This girl is like the exact foil to me….. I’m FROM Indiana, but live in Wellington New Zealand with my Kiwi man. So neat to find a story that I resonate with so much on my favourite website!
