Taking some space to share something that isn’t my own, because I think this is really important.

Ever found yourself caught in a heated argument online and realized that you didn’t even know if your own position was a strong one? You may be addicted to argutainment, and you’re not alone… but what’s the cost? Here’s an awesome TED Talk from You’re Addicted to You author Noah Blumenthal.

My friend Nina and I have started an Instagram project called #fashionpenpals (follow us at @kattonina), where we feature and discuss fashion for any size, shape, or income, as we search for authentic style. Here’s me in a dress and clutch I purchased used on Threadflip.
