Have you ever met Erin from Design for All Mankind?

No? Well she is super sweet and you may want to steal her whole wardrobe.

If you haven’t met her I am sure many of you read her super cool blog.

I met her briefly last year at Alt and again this year.

She came up with the “My Life List” and I loved the idea so much I am going to completely steal her idea and make it my own.

Stealing is OK under very special circumstances!  It is.  Really.  Don’t judge me!

Without further ado….here we go
