Erika Bearman- formerly @oscarprgirl- is not only the queen of eclectic and wickedly cool style; think crops tops & ball gowns or dramatic fur coats & a NYY baseball cap, but also takes on the role of being a consultant to brands like Flagpole (who just launched a special collection with ODLR) and of course, mother to adorable, one-year-old Electra. 

I originally crossed paths with Erika four years ago, while working on a ODLR project and have since stayed in touch with her. As I have come to know Erika over time, I can firmly say she is one of the coolest people ever... and I'm not kidding. I have yet to come across anyone who is equally intelligent, funny, kind and rock that "cool-girl" attitude as well as Erika does.
