I've never written an open letter, but after seeing the... interesting emails I've received from fashion public relations folks over the last while, I figured we needed to have a talk. Y'all. Y'all. There are some mega issues...
I’m pretty stoked to share this interview with Kat Eves of The Style Ethic. Kat is a fashion stylist who focuses on plus sizes, specifically plus size AND ethical options, and she has a personal aesthetic that I am *obsessed* with.   Kat has...
