If you haven’t been able to tell by now through my Instagram and personal style posts, I have this thing for street art. I just find it super cool to have access to art that’s beautiful, funny, ironic, and / or overall just intriguing…without having to step foot in a gallery. It catches you by surprise, as you never know when you’ll come across it. So that’s why I wanted to start profiling the brains behind these [sometimes illegal] operations. First up? Don’t Fret.
Have you ever been to a new establishment in your city and you’re just like damn, this is really f-ing cool? Well, that’s how I feel about Owen + Alchemy. If you don’t know what it is you’ll find out soon…but it’s safe to call it the Proenza Schouler of juice bars (yeah, I went there). Now who is the bad ass behind O+A? It’s time you find out.
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.
