Okay, can I be honest here?  I was late to game when it comes to appreciating the sophisticated and classy iconic white shirt.  I would always read the white shirt on the list of must-have items for women, but I didn’t get it.  I mean … first of all, it’s white and going to get dirty, right?

Soma Apparel (& Link Up)

August 16, 2018

Am I right?
