HELLO, MONKEYFACE! began because I wanted to show off my amazing simultaneous skills of getting dressed and not taking myself too seriously. My new project, COURTESY LAUGH, places heavier emphasis on the latter pursuit (you can tell how lighthearted and fun it will be by the way I called it...

bebe jacket - target tank (unseen, so this is pointless) - poetrie skirt - style & co. wedges Wow, look at that giant mass of thick, straw Barbie hair in that last picture there. Now you know why you rarely see the back of my head. It's a nest, for crying out loud. Anyway I didn't want to...

Any tips/secrets/warnings you'd like to impart to fellow self-caught style bloggers?Watch out for that nasty wind and check twice that the tripod is balanced. I've had my camera take a nose dive on me more than once because of wind or because my tripod isn't balanced properly on unlevel...

target cardigan - loft dress (old) - anthropologie belt - style & co. wedges Greetings, friends and Monday. I kind of like Monday morning for one reason only, and that's that the web world starts to buzz a little since we're excited to see each other after having been gone sailing all...
