With that being said, I do love America with […]

Jumpsuit Up!

We are living in the twenty-first century my friends. This is the era of technology and social equality, that equality including women’s rights. Yes, I am talking about a call for equivalent pay in the work force, but also the right to wear clothes that are less conventionally feminine. The “who’s wearing the pants” saying […]

Ravishing Roses
