Atelier Doré is… Caitlin Villarreal!

Where are you from?
Los Angeles, CA

Do you have a nickname?
Not really… Up until November it was CDubs because of my old initials (CW), but with my married name (CV), think it’s time for a new one… Open to suggestions!

What’s your sign?
Taurus! And proud of it.

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Resourceful, loyal, even-keeled.

Describe what you do at Atelier Doré in one sentence.
Think of me of as a marketing/sales lead rolled into one; with a focus on growth strategy…. and a lot of brand building.

Ideal weekend includes…
Being lazy with my husband and cat; watching him cook delicious dinners in our kitchen with a (big) glass of wine in my hand; seeing friends (who are more like NY family)… rounding it out with a few Flywheel classes and spa appointments.

Favorite cocktail?
Spicy Mezcal margarita, preferably from Empellon Al Pastor.

Do you have a secret talent?
I think I can dance. Keyword: think.

Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
This is hard to narrow down… Driving to Santa Barbara from Los Angeles at 4AM for a sunrise rave on the beach bluffs when I was 16.

Describe your style in 3 words:
Eek. Can I pass on the 3 words? I’m going through a mid-life style crisis where I’m saying goodbye to my trend-based “fashion” impulse buys, and trying to uncover the effortlessly chic, confident (but comfortable) woman I know is in there…

Favorite place you’ve ever been?
The Maldives for a reboot; Mexico for inspiration; Japan for a new world.

Advice to your teenage self?
Don’t change a thing. Just keep doing you, because you’re actually doing it all right (even if it’s “wrong”).

One thing you can’t live without?
The feeling I get when I open my apartment door and walk in to find my little family, comfortably at home.
