About This Creator
Canadian twins Cailli and Sam Beckerman have made a huge impact on the blogging world with their quirky more-is-more style. After prestigious internships with renowned labels like Oscar de la Renta, the girls have become a brand on their own due to their large digital impact. We sat down with the exuberant girls and asked about their style, their inspiration, and of course, their adorable dogs.
We are twin bloggers, Cailli and Sam Beckerman from BeckermanBlog.com and have had our blog for almost six years.
