my thoughts on quality shoes + early fall diary

I have a bit of a ranting diary post, so I’ll preface this with what I’m wearing to save y’all the grief. The denim I am wearing is from BDG at Urban Outfitters — I love their pieces because they are designed for curvy girls like me, and I feel so confident in them! I…
