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...

target cardigan - gap tank - poetrie skirt - j crew belt - urban outfitters wedges Well maybe I don't know your innermost thoughts and feelings, but I bet I do know that you like this location. I pay attention. You guys like the pretty stuff, am I right? It's okay, I do too. The thing is...

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...

I feel like that garbage bag was foreshadowing the stinky day I would end up having yesterday, but I was too busy freezing my fingers and toes off out there to see it. Instead I suffered blindly (and coldly - did I mention it was FREAKZING yesterday?) through a hardship, a mishap, and a...

Lately, however, I have been feeling very exposed in my upper chestal/necktal regions as a result of a seriously unforgivable mistake I made: I placed all my necklaces into a tiny box for travelling and let them intimately get to know one another, and now they refuse to come apart. In a...

I would have aired "the christmas sweater," probably, just because I always like the holiday episodes of my favorite TV shows and it somehow feels like cheating to be able to relive a little of that season's greetings when you're sweating in a tank top snacking on bowl after bowl of ice. But...

Yeah okay I'll admit I am probably the only one who flipped the ON switch for each of those three things in their mind at the same time. Alright. This post is running dangerously close alongside the tracks to Nonsenseville. So was that sentence. Somebody stop me. I've been writing a lot...

I know what you're thinking, you're like, MONKEYFACE, I THOUGHT YOU DID THAT ALL THE TIME (you yell a lot in your head), and your screaming thoughts would be right, except for the fact that I definitely did not follow my early morning routine while on vacation. It sounds too good to be true,...

I feel like you go out to that location in that kind of weather, wearing a simple, girly outfit with ruffles and bows and your hair sweetly pinned to the side like a schoolgirl, and you are just asking for some kind of alien lightning monster to come out of nowhere and strike your head off...
