TALENTED PEOPLE,
Fashion can be funny
Hello beautiful, I have been a fan of Iliza Schlesinger’s comedy for a few years now. I’m even a big fan of her adorable dog blanche who has her own Instagram following. I got hooked by Iliza’s first Netflix special and then saw her live in LA, Boston, and NYC. Last Saturday I saw her […]

Do award shows make you happy or mad? DISSECTING EMMYS BEST AND WORST DRESSED
