Dress However The F*ck you Want

an ALL t.h.r.i.f.t.e.d lookbook I’ve gotten to the much-desired point of my life where my wardrobe consists of almost all thrifted pieces. Although my wallet plays a role in my current wardrobe, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I feel proud to wear these clothes. Fast fashion has been exponentially discussed over the past…

Our Bodies Our Art Ch.2

Editors Note: Recently I’ve been feeling unlike myself. 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…

I began to regret wearing a certain outfit to school, wishing I’d opted for jean shorts and a…

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…
