Our Bodies Our Art-Chapter 4

This week I am, for lack of a better term, very excited to share my interview with Mareena and her up and coming online/ print zine From Women With Love I’ve been following Mareena on Instagram for a while, and let me tell you she does it all and then some. Mareena is the owner…

Styling a Statement Jacket

It’s becoming that cold-enough-to-see-your-breath-outside kind of weather, and that means one thing, jackets. There are the shoe-obsessed and purse-obsessed, but I, am without a doubt, jacket-obsessed. A confession to my jacket obsession What’s so great about jackets? Besides the whole keeping you warm thing, they also are essentially two outfits in one. Throw a stylish…

Our Bodies Our Art Chapter 3

Photographer- Sarah Davis I’m lucky enough to have gone to the same high school as Sarah.  Her nostalgic images and dreamy portraiture don’t stand alone, for with each photograph Sarah provides a narrative. Sarah’s voice, both socially and politically, shouts through her photographs.  Here are her words regarding the #ourbodiesourart movement.   I recently began to…

Ignorance, But Make it Fashion

I could sit here and give you facts. I want to sit here and tell you that worldwide 14 million tons of waste are produced because of fast fashion, but I will not do that. I will not tell you that your favorite companies, like H&M and Zara, exploit their workers. I will not point…

Write Everyday

Thrifts and Prints? Who is she? [insert long winded apology here]. Long story short (short story short actually), I started college, had an identity crisis, and abandoned this website.

I feel selfish making art, it feels wrong to worry about minuscule aspects of life, like my photograph I was *super* proud of only got this many likes on Instagram.  However, I’ve been going back to Our Bodies Our Art. I’ve been admiring the way that we…

Why Shoot Film?

About three years ago, I purchased a Canon AE-1 from a local antique store. The guy gave it to me for, I believe, $10, since he was unsure if it worked or not. I quickly watched a youtube video on the basics of using it, “ok I got this”, I said, as I loaded the…

The Diary of a Round-Shaped Face

Recently I chopped a good five inches off my hair. I’ve been trying to do things that I wouldn’t normally do. Although I’m not a stranger to the DIY haircut lifestyle, I haven’t rocked a bob in many years. Often I attribute my femininity to the length of my hair. No matter where I am…
