accessory to the crime

The way I see it, you’re either an accessories person or you’re not. I know plenty of people (ok, women) who love to carry the perfect purse, drape the ideal scarf, choose the earrings that complement the belt that ties in with the exact pumps that go with the ideal pair of jeans (of the […]
