MANIFESTO AGAINST ‘FASHION’
I never set out to be a ‘style blogger’, but I’ve known for a long time that expressing myself online was a perfect way to attract the best clients to work with. So it’s a nice extra to be awarded #36 of the top 100 style bloggers. But still not into awards or frivolous pats […]
