Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by annet.
yes! couldn’t agree with you more! i’m very pale with brown hair and hazel eyes, and i’ve never had a tan in my life. i start wearing sunscreen as soon as spring kicks in, my arms and shoulders have some color from being exposed more often and my face has a lot of small freckles. my legs are so white they can reflect the morning sunlight peeking through the curtains on my ceiling (i noticed that this morning) and guess what… i like it. i do have a bit of a pinkish undertone so i don’t look unhealthy or tired all the time, but i’ve started to like being able to ignore all the voices shouting ‘sun! self tanner!’ at me and getting out in my summer dresses.

Dry cleaning tends to be just as rough as a washing machine, they just use chemicals instead of water. These scream hand-wash to me!
One easy way to clear your closet and switch up your style
Hanging everything is not the greatest idea though, especially for knit items… Things like sweaters or knit dresses might stretch due to the weight, or the shoulders might get warped because of the hanger. There’s a reason why knits are supposed to be dried flat!
