Thus was the case with the ceasing of the justacorps, extensively worn from the 1660s until the 1790s, followed…

In the immortal words of Fergie “A little party never killed nobody, right here, right now’s all we got.” And boy is that true! As human beings we are born into social groups, we dream, learn, grow, and work as part of society. The society that we’re born into and the societies that we navigate…

As I write this story Kim Kardashian West is apologizing. She’s apologizing for naming her shapewear company Kimono which is the cutest play on her name Kim.
