Just because my city has floods doesn’t mean the rest of you can’t use my little styling tips! You all have places to go to, don’t you?!
I’m not able to post what I was planning to today, but here’s just a few tips on handbags. My body type is petite and thin, so I’ve noticed since my teens that not all bags look good on me. That’s why I decided to write a few tips on how to choose your handbag.
