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.

17 Again

It’s no new news that fashion embraces youth, and models continue to start younger and younger. It’s something we’ve just gotten used to and to hear about a 16 or 17 year old walking the runways in Paris and Milan is just as common as a Lindsay Lohan mishap where it was “definitely not her fault.” But it really gets you thinking…what exactly were you doing at this age? Probably not getting photographed by Annie Leibovitz (but if you were, good for you).

Halloween Hater

I promised myself I wouldn’t do a Halloween post until at least one week before “the big day” (if I decided to write one at all), but with bags of candy basically getting stale on the shelves (they have been there since August, after all) I figured…why the hell not? I’m giving in. But I’m warning you, I am a Halloween hater.
