I dedicate Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra to my mom, Lois, who has been my most beloved shopping partner since I fell in love with fashion and who has inspired me and turned me into the woman and writer I am today.

Thank you for teaching me to like different things in fashion and in life, thank you for pushing me out of my style comfort zone throughout my life, thank you for my dry, sarcastic and sharp sense of humor, and thank you for subscribing to every fashion mag under the sun, which in turn has given me very expensive taste (well I’m not going to thank you 100% for that one), and thank you for being the most bad ass woman I know.

Here is to shaking our fists at people with crisp clothes.
