Got another Huffington Post piece in which I share four reasons to reevaluate your hairstyle.
“Loving yourself is a dangerous act, I think, because the evidence that you’re not lovable is always easily available when you go looking for it.”
If I try this embellished collar DIY, I feel like it might look droopy and weird. But it’s so cool I still might give it a try!
Grown and Curvy Woman recaps her favorite recent outfits, and I love them ALL.
“It’s taken me quite some time to be able to say that without qualification. Without minimizing my accomplishments. Without making exceptions or excuses for why I’m not an athlete. Because I’m fat. So I can’t be an athlete, because athletes are thin and cut, right?”
Peter shares his thoughts on the popular and eye-opening book, Overdressed, and spawns a lively debate about clothing consumption, ethics, and the costs of fast fashion. Have any of you read the book? (I haven’t yet … on the list!)
