Personal style can stem from so many things — the way you grew up, your friends, travels and so much more. But there’s one thing that probably affects it the most, and it may not be the first thing that comes to mind.
There are certain things you come across in life that make everything just a little easier. An app, a recipe, an As Seen On TV product you were embarrassed to buy but you’re glad you did. And when you find such a thing, why keep it to yourself? Share the wealth. That’s exactly what I’m doing today…but in the category of beauty (no perfectly stacking lids or 30 minute meals here, sorry friends).
You know when you look at baby clothes and you’re all awww so cute? Well there’s this cool chick in Chicago doing something that makes you go awww…does that come in my size? Meet the Monica behind super successful children’s brand, Monica + Andy.
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.
