Trendsend Review #6 – One Thing. Just One.

Once again, it’s time to review another Trendsend box!  Over the past year, I’ve received and reviewed six of these subscription clothing service boxes.  Sometimes, I’ve been happy with what I received.  Sometimes, I questioned my stylist’s sanity.  You know…so it goes. The pieces I […]

GAAAAHHHHHH!!!! I am just home from one of the single most frustrating experiences of my life.  OK, well maybe not my whole entire life.  (Overdramatic much?  Sheesh.)  But still… On a total whim, I ran into Kohl’s after work today since I had both a […]
