Rock Cotton ~ Cool, Casual & On Point

March 10, 2017

Rock Cotton tie dye t-shirt dress on Lingerie BriefsI had another story intended for today, but who knew I would be called to emergency grandma duty just when I was about to sit down and write. I know it’s hard to believe, but keeping these posts “brief” is not as easy as it looks. It actually requires on point word carving and a modicum of product research to deliver a message succinctly.
