• Fighting the Ugly Feelings, Shopping Edition

    You guys asked for more fashion posts, so here you go my friends. The first time I did a fashion post, I swore it would be my last. I asked J to take my photos, and it was such an awkward interaction. I love him to death, but I don’t think he understands what fashion blogging
