Episode 16 ~Another Week, Another Dirty Sock~

Anyone want to do a skirt KAL? Watch this week's episode for details. I also discuss a cute new vlog I've been watching. I introduce a new heel by Cat Borhdi, and of course show off my socks. I finished Keira's bookbag, but it didn't really turn out as planned!
