fan spotlight: meet erika

May 13, 2021

We don’t pick favorites, but if your Instagram page is called @cabi.addicts, we’re bound to be biased! Holding down this fashion-forward, cabi-centric account is Erika Hirschfield, the mastermind behind it all. As a main admin, she helps manage all the posts on the group’s Facebook and Instagram pages. When it came time for us to select another fan to interview for our Fan Spotlight Series, there was no question…it had to be Erika!

Join us as we get to know her a little better and learn about her life outside of her passion for fashion. Be sure to check out her personal account @erikacreative to stay up to date on her latest experiments with pattern mixing and color coordinating!

Where are you from? Oak Brook, IL

What’s your favorite Spring 2021 piece (and why)? Definitely the 100% Boyfriend jeans—classic, distressed denim with a modern fit that reminds me of my favorite pair of jeans from the ’90s.

Coffee or Tea? Cold brew coffee

What’s your favorite beauty product? I really like LoveSeen lashes and a lot of the products from Jones Road and Vapour Beauty, both of which are clean beauty brands.

How were you introduced to cabi? My neighbor Christina invited me to a party in 2008. After I bought my first pair of jeans (I think it was the Contemporary Jeans), it wasn’t long before my closet became 99% cabi.

What do you love most about cabi? Being able to get dressed every day with confidence means a lot to me. Cabi makes it easy—the clothes are fantastic every season, but there’s also a sense of community and connection surrounding the brand, and that has made it more than “just clothes” for me. I’ve made some very good friends through cabi and together, we’ve been able to create a social media group that uplifts women through fashion and fellowship, while encouraging personal style.

What do you do to relax? I’m not very good at relaxing, so I would say lower-intensity multitasking or listening to music.

What’s your favorite movie? The Breakfast Club

What do you always need in your handbag? Several lip glosses, phone, sunglasses, a pen, whole earth sweetener, small wallet, headphones, and hand lotion

What books have you been reading lately? I much prefer podcasts—Literally! with Rob Lowe, Fat Mascara, And The Writer Is…, and Living With Landyn are my most listened to at the moment.

Here is our question for you: Do you consider yourself to be a cabi addict? If so, we want to hear all about it…your favorite cabi pieces, your favorite styling techniques, and anything else you want to share with us! It’s your turn to be in the spotlight.
