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...

Hello, my pseudonym is Monkeyface, and I am a sitaholic. I am beginning to think this kind of behavior requires some kind of reformative action, but for now, well... I think I'll sit on it.

thrifted angora sweater & leather skirt - target necklace & tights - jeffrey campbell boots I want you guys to know that I googled "how to iron leather" after looking at these photos of myself. I haven't tried it yet because I am still wearing this skirt, and having had experience ironing...

Please join me (Monkeyface that is - I'm back) in thanking Liz for sharing her advice and perspective on self-shot style blogging today! I could have written that whole "Practice/Study/Copy/Create" mantra myself, but I didn't, but that won't stop me from copying and pasting it into a Word doc...

victoria's secret sweater - asos pants - madden girl flats - old navy necklace Today I figured we might as well start our Monday morning off with a free (that's a two cent value!) piece of advice: do not try to write a blog post with only a handful of minutes left before you need to catch...

got up early this morning, so I guess that's the excuse we'll go with when I tell you I decided to try and tie the short necklace around my neck. One agonizingly tangled chunk of hair later, I can tell you for certain that this wasn't a good idea. Although I have to say I have never seen...
