My Love Hate relationship with Fast Fashion and Online Shopping

I should have named this post, “Fast Fashion and Online Shopping for the Woman who is Two Inches away from Six Feet Tall”; but then y’all probably wouldn’t have read it.  Too bad, y’all opened it and y’all gon’ read it. Whew chile!  Fast Fashion is where the money is and where much of our…
