Christmas Socks Instead of Christmas Sweaters

Socks

And there it was, just hanging and waiting for me on the rack. And by “it” I am referring to my recently acquired Proenza Schouler PSII mini.

It’s Time to Get Dirty with Frank

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Frank is not who or what you might think it is. It has a catchy tag line of “get naked. get dirty. get rough. get clean.” By the description, one would think that is extremely inappropriate and sexual, and from their marketing camapaign, it certainly alludes to that.

I mean, if Drake b ... >
