Do I Love the Look or the Body Wearing It?

A few months back, I was on the Free People website, I like to look at the site for style inspo every now and again.

Fraudy Feelings

A Journal Entry/Love Letter The most vulnerable and real blog yet. Maybe I shouldn’t be sharing this, maybe it’s not good for business but maybe it’s good for me.  Note: you may notice, this post was written several months back. At the time, it was too raw to share. Today, I was able to read it, being in a new place, with gratitude and I can honestly say it helped. I hope, it helps you too.     Photo courtesy of Skylar Schroff Recently, I’ve been feeling pretty fraudy. I started this business in hopes of encouraging others to embrace...
