Polyvore Love Letters: Blog Roundup
Some of my favourite things are fashion, writing, and big cities; naturally, New York City is my happy place. All of my favourite things melded together when I joined frockOn as a Vancouver contributor.  frockOn.com is a fashion website out of New York and houses writers from England, Pittsburgh, Switzerland, and of course, Vancouver. Below is a list of some of my favourite articles that I’ve written.  Read ’em and weep (not literally of course).
