When I was a little girl, my favorite color was pink. I don't think this is any surprise-- lot's of little girls love pink. The way gender roles are set up, the way advertisements are created: little girls are conditioned to love pink. So as I got older, I grew to rese...

I know why it’s called seasonal depression— because when you drag yourself through cold, gray, and miserable weather for five months, you start taking on the properties of it. 

That’s how I feel— cold, gray, and miserable. My depression has been quite good to me this ye...

Hi loves!

Honestly, I just wanted an excuse to talk about my new vintage 501s— I’ve already done a post all about sizing, so I thought I would just share a couple of outfits revolving around my new dark wash pair!

It's an old stereotype, that a woman who changes her hair is a woman who's about to change her life, but it's one that I think rings true for so many women. 

Break ups, big moves, mental transitions...personally, I have always felt an inexplicable need to chop my hair o...

I believe that all business affiliations and collaborations should be done with full integrity and authenticity. I love working with brands that have a similar vision to me; a good partnership should never compromise one's values or aesthetic.
