I wish I could fast-forward that part and go straight to decorating. Me and my boyfriend’s lease was about to be up and we were outgrowing our current apartment, but instead of searching for a new building, we opted to stay in the same and go from the 7th floor to the 15th with panoramic view of DTLA.

What better way to show the world that you’re a badass female who cares about the rights of others than wearing it on your sleeve. Show people you care about women’s rights, the rights of minorities, the LBGT community, unity, and equality for all.
