Shorts from Accompany, vintage purse, Reformation tank.

Hey readers, this week has been a whirlwind! My story for Quartz on the predatory multi-level marketing company LuLaRoe, purveyor of cheaply-made, polyester leggings, went viral, racking up over 800,000 readers. I didn’t go into how terrible they must be for the environment in the story, because, well, obviously. And also, it is long enough as it is. Grab a big coffee and a snack, and sit down for a long read. Then share it with the next woman who offers you the opportunity to “change your life from the comfort of your home.”
