115260305

For me Rag & Bone's skinny ripped jeans with the "of-the-moment" buffalo plaid patches are a definite no-brainer! I already own these jeans without the patches so I know they'll be a good fit.

The "dunkers" and the "participants" were having tons of fun raising awareness for ALS. Many were chilled, perfectly coiffed hair was ruined, clothes soaked and … [Read more...]
