As a fashion editor, I find that my friends always use me as a trusted source for sartorial guidance . Actually, I’m often one of the first people they text when they’re on the fence about a particular item or want help identifying the latest trend to try.

When I was 13 (and finally started going through adolescence), all I wanted was to start wearing a bra . At age 14, all I wanted was to stop stop to wear a bra .
