friday findings vii

I came across something that absolutely needs to be shared. So have you ever travelled somewhere wearing a piece of clothing that basically lets everyone know where you come from? No? Ok, well neither have I…. NOT! The truth is I like what I like, and I simply wear it! Here is a site that…
