Goodbye 2013, Goodbye RTW, Hello 2014!

Last post of the year! I’m saying goodbye to 2013, and with that I’m making a promise for 2014. Notice I said PROMISE? I do not make RESOLUTIONS. Mostly because I’m defiant by nature and don’t want to be told what to do. So… what’s my plan for 2014? Yep, no store bought clothes in 2014. I’m all signed up …
