Guest Post : : Casee Marie of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower

Hi, everyone! I'm Casee Marie from The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower and I'm thrilled to be guest posting for Stephanie today. I've been the recipient of plenty of inspiration through Stephanie's adventures here on The Loudmouth Lifestyle; the fluidity with which she pours her style and personality into her blog is something I admire exceedingly. I decided that it was only appropriate to make that the centric theme of my guest post and to share a bit of my own everyday life by following Stephanie's unique approach. So welcome to a bit of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower lifestyle!

My personal style is enormously black-and-white, literally and figuratively. Typically I gravitate toward simple, chic elements - readers of my blog have said I have a very Parisian style, funnily enough - but lately I've been trying to be a bit more adventurous with colors and, as you can see here, with patterns. I love bold, structured fashion that speaks with its shape and I love emphasizing looks with accessories. I'm always inspired by other bloggers, especially Vahni of Grit and Glamour, Kristy Elena of Full Time Fabulous and Vogue Gone Rogue, Barbro Andersen, Kirstin of Crimson Rosella and Jen of Her Waise Choice.

Cream-tastic (aka Creamsicle)
2 oz. Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
2 oz. orange juice
Shake over ice and drain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cherry

Since I'm not much of a whiz in the kitch I thought I'd spin this part with a liquid lunch. Sometimes you just need one of those, you know? My sister introduced me to Pinnacle Vodka, which comes in a few really different flavors. The only one I've tried so far is Whipped, which of course takes on a whipped cream taste. With each flavor there are dozens of drink recipes on Pinnacle's website that unlock endless possibilities. You can combine it with buttercream schnapps. coffee or chocolate or banana liquor, etc. The Cream-tastic is my favorite - which we've dubbed the Creamsicle because that's exactly what it tastes like - and if you add a splash of half-and-half it's even better!

When it comes to home d├ęcor I'm a little less predictable than I tend to be with fashion. I've gone from Tuscan-themed to old-Hollywood-inspired to Shabby Chic and beyond. I think you can find out a lot about yourself by looking at your space and your fashion sense and considering how the two differ. Lately I've taken a cue from my wardrobe and embraced minimalism in my interior design, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I get inspired by something else and change everything up completely.

How would you express the three L's of your style? Thanks again to Stephanie for inviting me to contribute this little guest post!


  1. LOVE. Look at her looking amazing!! That little drink sounds delish!

  2. Ummmmm, yummy drink for real!!!! LOOOOOVE Casee Marie her style is so classic. I like that Casee has been experimenting with her style. I loved the post with her family and donning on the 80's jumpsuit. She is more adventurous than she thinks ;).

  3. I love getting glimpses into your everyday life, it's so fun! Your outfit is darling and I love how you've been experimenting with different things! You know how I feel about trying something before you decide to just not like it. Kudos to you!

  4. Great guest post your cocktail looks real good as well!

  5. I love the mix of patterns and my eyes popped when I read that yummy recipe for what seems like the perfect summer drink!

  6. Oh what a lovely guest post Steph! I can totally see your style always so Parisian, and love that you're willing to take on more adventure with your style. Pattern mixing is so great. Love the photo Casee! & *Will need to try that drink.

  7. I love this three-L's idea! And that cocktail sounds so yummy.

    Thanks for the mention, Casee!


  8. Dear Casee,

    You're my hero for making a cocktail for lunch!!! It took me back to when Carrie didn't eat anything when she went to VOGUE and then drank cocktails. LOL.

    My LOOK for summer has been girl and flowy. It's so damn hot here in ATL that if you do too much you'll melt away. I'm into maxi dress and hats so far.

    For LUNCH, I really can't get enough salmon. And sangria :)

    For LOUNGE, I've stayed neutral as far as paint is concerned and played around with Tiffany blues and wedding photos as far as my living room is concerned. It's really made me feel like an adult. LOL. But one room at a time. Next up, the dining room...


  9. Stephanie, thanks so much for offering this guest post. Your blog is so fun and its content is lovely!! :) In this case I love the whole "3 L's" idea, brilliant!

    Casee: you rockstar!!!! How GORGEOUS are you? <3<3<3...I agree with Jennifer and reiterate what I've said on many occasions: I love to have a little glimpse into your life! Thanks!

    (I plan to start a campaign to get that Pinnacle Vodka sold here in Mexico, sounds super yummy!!!!)

    Look: Grunge/Naughty Schoolteacher/Wannabe' groupie ;)
    Lunch: Tuna salad with mexican tostadas on the side
    Lounge: starving writer meets disorganized artist LOL

  10. OOOOh I love you both so much! I really love this post, such a great idea! I love your take on it Casee, you georgeous girl you. Will there be more posts like this darling Steph?

    My L`s are:

    Look: Eclectic Chic, also known as bonkers.
    Lunch: Tortilla wrap with avocado, tzatsiki and coriander
    Lounge: Marocco meets Oslo

  11. I love your outfit, and I really want to try that drink now! I like that you're trying new things out, it makes me want to. :)
