Keely Thomas-Menter is a freelance writer and editor, and recreational listmaker. A California native and current Brooklyn resident, she's perpetually in pursuit of Katharine Hepburn-esque palazzo pants and is probably over-caffeinated at this very moment. Formerly a fashion buyer, Keely gets her kicks working with artists and designers, and writing about everything from handcrafted ear cuffs to the best spots in the city to cop a snack. She's a diehard proponent of denim-on-denim, and would love to be the kind of person who can get away with aggressively mixing patterns without looking like she dressed in the dark (she is not that kind of person). Her interests include obsessing over all manner of natural beauty products, cooking without pants on, and dog ogling.
