An Ode To the Cafeteria Girls

Summer before fifth grade I started my very own fashion blog, embarrassingly titled “Chunky Funky Monkeys”. That year I wore polka dot dresses with striped tights, already acknowledging  the way in which my classmates would treat me. I began to regret wearing a certain outfit to school, wishing I’d opted for jean shorts and a…

Our Bodies Our Art-Chapter 1

#ourbodiesourart Three weeks ago, I made a post on my Instagram, as well as on my blog, introducing a hashtag, #ourbodiesourart. I was hesitant to share my idea, as I feared there would be very little participation. I was happily proven wrong. Over the past three weeks I have been collecting the thoughts and artwork…

Caterpillars and Butterflies

Something that’s always kept me going is the understanding that the person I am now is not the person I will forever be. I am ever-growing, you are ever-growing, we are ever-growing. With all disregard to science, people never stop self evolving. This is the thought process that got me off my bedroom floor four…

Going Nowhere

Something I don’t talk about too much is how I style my shoots, or that I style all my shoots. Honestly, this is a job I’d never like to give to someone else. From selling vintage at Unamused Apparel, to collecting vintage pieces, I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes, so I have an extensive, time…

Our Bodies Our Art

Calling ALL female and female identifying photographers and models!! I have worked towards building my platform as a place that celebrates working with what you’ve got, a place where humor, sincerity, and the bizarre, all combine to make, what I hope is, a fun little world. But, overall, I have created Thrifts and Prints as…

Life as a Thrift Store

One of my earlier memories involves me in a thrift store, I’m in a horrible mood, and I don’t want to be there. “Everything is so gross” I’m thinking to myself, carefully picking out the oldest, most pilly shirt in the store to justify my thoughts. I kept thinking of the  crisp, brand new, pink…

Creating an Un-fuck-with-able Attitude

A step by step guide to creating a positive, kick-ass, powerful attitude: Wear whatever you want, whenever you you want, wherever you want:  Luckily I have finally escaped the hell that is middle-class suburban public schools, aka a lot of boring dressers who have nothing better to do than laugh at one’s choice in clothing….

Prom Queen-The Art of Turning off Men

Normally I don’t model for my own photographs as the self timer and my mild awkwardness in front of the camera doesn’t offer me a lot of freedom. However, this morning I had blow dried my hair out and figured it would be a loss not to capture it for the world (or a very…

More is More is More is…

Scenario: It’s late, nighttime, what some would call early morning. I have watched every makeup challenge video on YouTube. A new video pops up: “My Minimalist Wardrobe”. “I can get into this” I think to myself. Behind me is a wardrobe overflowing with clothes dating back to sixth grade, a cold sweat rushes over me….
