When it comes to my style, I certainly consider myself a girly girl. Still, there is something appealing about incorporating men’s fashion into a feminine ensemble. This isn’t just something I made up; the trend is on the rise. I, for one, love the idea of taking something masculine and […]

So I finally went home last weekend.  Everything was great, except I ate my way into 2 weeks of elastic waistbands.  Where I’m from, people are old-fashioned to say the least.  It’s not unusual to overhear people making racial slurs in public or to hear of girls getting married at […]
