Inside the Birdcage – October 29, 2015

I have been looking further into fashion blogging and abolitionism; it appears that I wasn’t bragging when I said that you could literally find just about anything through fair trade if you knew where to look, although for the most part this is limited to clothes, jewelry and accessories, makeup, and household items, that occupies […]
