Day 53 - Wardrobe Edit: Dresses
This category was a surprise to me, since I don't really consider myself a "dress person", and I was shocked to find how many dresses I actually owned.

I'm angry about this. I'm sad. I'm incredulous that the leader of the free world could be so careless with the future of the next generation.
