Tamara KilburnHello, My name is Tamara Kilburn ( T Kilburn )

I am a first time Mom at 41 and the founder of Seattle based brand and boutique Sway and Cake. After having my son Tatum, I decided to expand the Sway and Cake blog about staying stylish and kid wrangling at the same time. My perspective is a bit unique from being in the fashion industry for so long. I went from a crazy career  to driving a seven passenger vehicle,  picking kids up from school,  and working at home.  Did I also mention I am newly married, have 2 very active step children, and got shipped off to the Suburbs. A bit of of a change from my old city chick self but none the less I enjoy the daily adventures and being able to be watch my son grow. Please follow me as I keep it cool  collaborate with other stylish moms and feature fashion, products and tips that  I use and Inspire me.

A Little Background..

After moving back home to Seattle from NYC, I  felt a strong passion to create an urban fashion-forward shopping experience.

As a former stylist and designer, I took my experience, unique eye & sense of style to create Sway and Cake (‘sway’ meaning clothes and ‘cake’ meaning accessories).

The success of Sway and Cake is consistently based on bringing an eclectic mix of product & keeping the look fresh and authentic. My own style strongly influences the brand; a little rock and roll, a bit glam gypsy, brought together by a tightly curated selection of accessories.

Sway and Cake has transformed into a lifestyle,and Fashion perspective from a New Mom and seasoned fashion buyer, store owner, and jewelry designer.

About the Jewelry..

I have been designing jewelry for as long as I can remember. My first business was at 20 years old selling my jewelry from a kiosk at Westlake center. From there I moved to New York, made pieces for friends and later for photo shoots.  Years later I started selling my pieces at sway and cake and  other stores around the country. I have come to refer my look as organic bling. I will feature pieces on the blog and promote all the beautiful stores that carry T Kilburn.
