I dedicate Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra to my mom, Lois, who has been my most beloved shopping partner and true style stud since I fell in love with fashion, inspiring and turning 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, thank you for my dry, sarcastic and sharp sense of humor, and thank you for having a better closet than me to this day and showing me that style doesn’t have to diminish with age.

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