The “Fashion Girl” Tennies Trend You Won’t Believe

I never would have thought that I would be bringing these up again, dear readers. If you’re a millennial, there is no chance that you aren’t familiar with what I am about to share with you. In fact, if you’re anything like me, you probably went through a hormone-induced teenage breakdown in order to get […]


Fashionista Friday: Tona’s Goodwill Shoe Haul

Dear readers, it goes without saying that shoes are my number one favorite item to scavenge Goodwill stores for. People donate gently used and sometimes even brand new shoes for a number of reasons I suppose. But, I like to think that there are so many wonderful shoes at Goodwill because people order them online […]


Guest Blogger: Mixing up your holiday style
