www.sisterhouse.net

I love Ebay and it all started when I first started dressing. I’d been a sporadic dresser all my life but usually just a piece of lingerie here or there. Then back in the mid-2000s, I had an epiphany after going to a dressing service and the genie (girl) was out of the bottle. I […]

The color red says ‘look at me!’ and ‘yes, I can’ or maybe even ‘yes I will.’ The color red sparks in us an enthusiasm and energy that increases the heartbeat and protects us from stress and fear.

Fashion Is Fun Again
www.sisterhouse.net

Fashion is fun again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: 2017 has been the year for maximalist dressing. And the trend should continue through the rest of the decade.
