cupcakes and Cashmere Alina Gonzalez, a former employee of the famous lifestyle blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, has posted one of the most extended Instagram stories I’ve ever seen to explain why she was shot publicly. “Every. Single. BOSS,” Alina wrote on her Instagram account. I’ve talked with. Who, hashtag, work at actual companies? I have had real jobs and run real teams, and I cannot believe she was so insignificant and petty. She never spoke to me again and did not have the personal dignity and money to give a professional, courteous note thanking me and saying goodbye.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Cupcakes and Cashmere, it was created in 2008 by Emily Schuman.
A Hills alum whose brand is best encapsulated by this line of custom doughnuts spelling out “FRIYAY Alina’s allegation. She made several Instagram stories and comments (she has 19.5K followers). She was fired because she and Leslie—who she claims reported to her—didn’t work from the office full-time as scheduled while Emily and her husband were on vacation in Japan. Leslie then “snitched,” according to Alina, because she is an “absolute fake, two faces.”
Cupcakes and Cashmere:
Let’s take a look at the proof! About April, the Cupcakes and Cashmere group realized Alina had vanished, as reported by GOMI, a popular internet destination for people who enjoy blogger drama: Emily wrote about the sudden death of one of her young daughter’s friends, her subsequent distress, her pet Rocco’s illness and recovery, and Alina’s firing in a blog post titled “An Emotional Few Weeks” on April 25:
To make matters worse, once we returned from Japan, we had to let Alina go.
We didn’t make this decision lightly, and the fact that we considered her family only added to the difficulty. It was depressing and overwhelming, and speaking publicly about such a private business matter felt both important and inappropriate at the same time.

But it wasn’t until recently that the simmering resentment between Alina and her former boss started to surface in public.
Even though my fashion sense was vastly different from Emily’s, I adored her blog. Her attention to detail, dedication to her aesthetic, and warm personality — with a touch of business bitch thrown in for good measure — kept me coming back for more. Much has changed in the 12 years since I was obsessing about Emily’s blog in my dorm room, but I still secretly adore C&C, even though I am still a Goth Queen.

I’m not the only one who thinks this way. Revelist’s producer, Brittany Fowler, turns out to be a long-time Cupcakes and Cashmere fan.
“I started reading Emily’s blog when I was in high school,” she said. “I adored (and still adore!) Her sense of style!” As lifetime Emily Schuman fans, we knew we had to check out the Cupcakes and Cashmere clothing line and online shop when we heard about it.
Emily’s selected choices from other brands are available at the Cupcakes and Cashmere department, as well as a lot of the C&C clothing collection.

Brittany favors relaxed, athleisure-inspired looks in her everyday wardrobe, while I’ve never passed up a shapeless black sack.
But when you adore a fashion blogger, you’re willing to take some style chances, so we went shopping anyway, motivated by our shared admiration for Emily. We began by selecting a Cupcakes and Cashmere outfit that best suited our styles, which was SURPRISINGLY easy. I was expecting it to be very preppy, very office-lady-who-loves-blazers… but there were a few edgier pieces (for me) and laid-back styles in the collection (for B). Unfortunately, many of the items we wanted to try, like this dress, were sold out at the Cupcakes and Cashmere shop.
But we managed to make it work.
“As someone who usually dresses in athletic wear. I was excited to slip into something a little more polished but still comfortable.” Brittany is wearing a size extra tiny Stelle shirt dress ($105, Nordstrom). However, “I liked it a lot, even though it made me feel like. I was wearing a nightgown at first,” Brittany said. “The fabric was light and airy, making it ideal for summer. I intended to wear this with sneakers. But after putting it on, I felt the need to go a little fancier (platform sandals, in my opinion).”
Even though the fabric was sheer, B didn’t feel exposed in the least:
“The dress has a built-in white slip, so I didn’t feel exposed in the least.”The slip DID adhere to the shirt dress with snaps in the back, which seemed overly complicated. But maybe that’s usual and I just don’t wear slips very much,” I reasoned. “For the price, the quality of this dress was excellent. The little pockets on the boobs appealed to me “Brittany remarked. “However, I just wish they were on my hips.”
That’s well, though, because the next issue is HOLY SIDEBOOB BATMAN. My tits were fully exposed on both sides, and I’m not notably bulky in the face. You can see any nipple if you wear a bra size more significant than a C cup. Just a word of caution. I put a C&C jacket overtop to cope with my compressed arm condition and instantly felt 40 percent cooler.
“I’d wear it again in a heartbeat, except this time with an island cocktail in my lap.
Is anyone for a Pia Colada? Since the tight waistband will restrict my brunch and umbrella drink intake, I give this piece four cupcakes.” On the other hand, I wore a neon coral dress that was WAY out of my comfort zone. Emily is a fan of bright colors and fluttery details, all of which are present in this dress.
