Capsule Travel Wardrobe What I Wore Today 11.10.11

One of my favorite personal projects has been the 52 Weeks, 52 Letters Challenge dreamed up by the always clever Katy Wolk-Stanley of The Non-Consumer Advocate. As anyone who knows me or reads this blog could tell you, I’m a lover of ridiculous, time-intensive, personal projects. They could also tell you that I am horrifically […]
