Most used clothes are imported from … Continue reading 6 Reasons why I buy used clothes (and the impending rise of fast fashion)
Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. It’s cliché, but with every life cycle, we forget to remember the great people and things that happen to us–until adversity strikes our lives.
