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. Anyways, I’m here, very ironically, to talk about writing every day. If you’re like me, who keeps nearly every emotion to herself, then you’ll probably understand…

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…

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.

With all disregard to science, people never stop self evolving. This is the thought process that got me off my bedroom floor four…

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….
