Valentine’s Makeup

Valentine’s Day is up there with the lame holidays, which includes Saint Patrick’s day and Easter, but anything can be fun with makeup. Last year I did a pretty boring set of three makeup looks to celebrate the holiday. This year i’m doing something a little more fun and a little more me. Of course…

The Anatomy of Fish

Sometimes, when the sun hits a fish just right, they’re not just brown or orange, but pink and green and blue […] in that little patch of sunlight where there is no “just”, but more of what could be  The anatomy of fish is the name of the essay I submitted for college. I wasn’t…

And a Happy New Year

2016 has definitely been the year of makeup. From baking your face to silicone sponges, we’ve pretty much thought of it all this year. With that said, I’ve spent a bit too long in front of the mirror trying out the latest trends…all at once. This New Years Eve I wanted to bring you guys…

You Hit Like an Artist

Grab a snack, because this is going to take a while. As I created this blog as a platform for fashion and beauty, it has slowly progressed into writing, photography, and one of my favorite passions, ranting. Maybe I should start a series called Rants with Riley because boy do I have a lot to…

Hangnail

Hangnail just popped into my head during stats class. For a week I’ve had a note in my computer that read “orange peel + fake nails”, and this is the outcome. Of course I can’t take a picture these days without having some feminist statement intertwined in it (god forbid!!!). I’ve been inspired by vintage…

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…

Polished to Perfection

Model: Kalen Hughes and Parker Halliday MUA: Parker Halliday I’ve always been inspired by obscure things. From horror movies, to Twilight Zone episodes, I love works that make you a little confused. I’ve been focusing on using that feeling in my photography. In this shoot I wanted to play up the doll-like perfection of the…

The Idea of Equal Rights was in the Air

My heart has felt very heavy. I’ve been trying to sit down and write this post for hours, but my words feel jumbled and my brain is just foggy. I’ve been thinking back to taking immense amounts of history notes last year, where I studied the “second half” of United States history. That was the…

Welcome to Unamused Apparel

Looks like I’ve been pretty absent from Thrifts and Prints, apparently school works on their time and not mine…so rude. Before I go on let’s get onto what i’m really here to talk about. Today, I bring to you, a super cool super new clothing line (from a very bias source), Unamused Apparel. My twin…
