Fashionably ill Turns 3! A Video to Celebrate

Fashionably ill turned 3!  Yay.  To celebrate, I recorded this.  In it, I share my three favorite memories with Fashionably ill readers (pictures included!) and my three goals for the future.  Below, is a list of the top 10 most popular articles since June 2012, when I started this blog.  (I would have posted this earlier but I had several interruptions: the car accident, nausea, and the shooting in Charleston.  After the shooting, I started a project to send cards to the families of the victims.  I’ll write about that project later if you’re interested in sending cards.)
