Want Of The Week: Monif C’s Marilyn Dress


Lemme tell you a crazy story. Do you believe in destiny? This feels more like dresstiny. Last year I was still living in Miami. We were planning a move to Chicago, and I had just quit my job. I was nervous about our future, but I had a dream that reassured me. It was in […]
