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…

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…

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…

Instead of the outdated style of covering whole articles of clothing in one animal print, clothing companies are celebrating the animals themselves through embroidery and patches. This fun trend has made its appearance more…

OOTD: Styling Overalls

Overalls can either go two ways, a preschooler or a preschool teacher. So, of course the only option is to combine the two stereotypes and make the tackiest outfit of all. I use the word tacky too often, and in the wrong context, but this isn’t English class, so let’s talk about clothes. An Overview…
