They're also made by the tailor (or within his small team) and not shipped off to a factory or overseas, adding to the premium pricing.
A classic button down shirt is my number one wardrobe essential. It is one of the few wear anywhere and anytime staple pieces, thanks to its versatility. With a few styling changes, a white button down can be worn from day to night and from work to play.

over the years and through a lot of bad encounters and relationships, I adapted and went from sweet and innocent to sexy vixen with an edge. Now that I am in a happy and committed relationship, I have some valuable advice for all of those single girls out there. I wish I had this kind of wisdom when I was on the hunt for my Prince.
I am a firm believer that as you climb the corporate ladder it's incredibly important to remember to throw down a rope. When I discovered G(irls)20, I knew this was an organization I could get behind both professionally and personally.
Selling on eBay can be an exercise in futility -- especially if you don't know what you're doing and why. However, if you just stop looking at the website as just some after-work hobby, you might actually be able to turn it into a real business with good money behind it.

Then it began as a means to keep up with the competition: if a blogger was talking about it, I wanted it, or if I thought it would be an upcoming trend, I had to have it. It was at a point where I felt this compulsive need to constantly be checking what was new, and "in", and on the backs of my fashion icons.
I had it all planned. I was going to make so much money selling my clothes. Like anyone else, I maintain that my collection of clothes is damn near priceless. I schlepped my bag to the nearest Kind Exchange with hopes of finally starting that 'Waterfront Condo (a.k.a. the New Pair of Shoes) Fund'. Finally she gave me the number I had been waiting to hear: "$11.56." What?!

At this size, the only way I'm participating in any of the new fashions is if I get some serious alterations, mainly in the booty region.

I am ashamed that my concern with my weight gain was not my health or well-being, but what I could no longer wear nor buy.
