Read Because… The Christian Siriano x Lane Bryant Runway Show Was A Divine Experience You Might Of Missed

My obsession with sleeveless coats just got worse…

I’m not sure how this happened. I blame Kela Walker. I normally text my wardrobe choices to her for her approval. She thumbed up all the sleeveless jackets and coats and basically instructed me to buy them all…so I did #KanyeShrug. (I bought this one and this one a few weeks back!) My new closet goal is to buy more sneakers and items…
