#NoFilter

Like I mentioned on the last day of the year, it seems like 2014 was the year of Photoshop fails / getting called out for altering your Instagram photos. But in just one week, there’s been a few things that make me think 2015 is the year of #nofilter…but a true #nofilter (not the nearly 10 million #nofilter lies…which we’ll get to in a moment). So why exactly are we re-touching these photos in the first place, whether for Instagram or a major publication?

CCF Turns Five

On this day (or around this day) in 2009, I made a free account on WordPress (chicityfashion.wordpress.com) and started writing about fashion things because I was bored in college. I never even checked for grammatical errors, I put terrible collages together in Polyvore and all because I don’t know how to use Photoshop…and I thought no one would ever see this site. Fast forward, five years later…and holy shit, this is my job.

Carbs & Cardio

Hi, my name is Jena and I’m new to exercise…

Is basically how I introduced myself my first month or so of working out (which would involve me breaking a sweat no more than once a week). Health and fitness are things I don’t think I’ve ever touched on here on CCF (the closest I’ve gotten is discussing activewear as ready to wear). So now that I have this wonderful life category where I can pretty much write about anything, this seemed to be the perfect time to talk about this stuff.
