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. 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…

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….

Make Bad Art

Call it an identity crisis, or a mental breakdown, but my urge to throw my phone into the ocean is becoming all too strong. How fucking privileged of me. However, since I’ve got your attention by swearing in the mere second sentence, I want to talk about young creatives on the internet. If you’re reading…

To the Ladies of the Lens

Before I absolutely bash male photographers (kidding), I’d like to recognize that my first photography role models were both men: Tyler Shields and Richard Avedon. But today is for the ladies of the lens. Actually, every day is for the ladies of the lens. I’m truly tired of feeling like shit around male photographers. At…
