My Story

My Story

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by Sicilia City Style, a place to share and inspire. I’m Beth, and yes, I’m Italian! My grandparents immigrated to a farm town in Washington all the way from Italy.  I come from one of those loud, crazy Italian families who cooked big, spaghetti dinners together every Sunday. It’s definitely one of those things I now look back on and am so thankful for.

I’m #4 of 5 kids, inheriting the darker skin and hair from the southern part of Italy, while my siblings inherited the lighter skin and blonde hair from the north. My husband is half Filipino, yet, I’m a mom to 3 little blonde boys. Genetics are funny that way.  And I can’t leave out our other family member, Bella, our pudgy English bulldog. She’s everything you’d expect from an English bulldog…she snores really loud, loves to do absolutely nothing, and doesn’t always smell great.  We’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old, and absolutely adore her.

I run my own Marketing and Consulting Agency in Seattle, which I really enjoy. When I’m not managing my business or running around chasing my boys (hubby included), I find myself obsessing over fashion. I’ve loved fashion ever since I was a little girl! I would (like a lot of little girls) find myself trying on my mom’s clothes and high heels, while sneaking her make-up, staying in front of the mirror for hours trying to put it on.  My family always used to tease me and say that if I were starving, I’d spend my last dollar on clothes, rather than food. They were probably right.

So it’s time for me to share my obsession with you.
