The new line includes personalized wallets, passport holders, computer bags, and business card cases.  Backed by Kickstarter, every piece of this collection is super chic with a retro flare.

Trigger Warning: This post mentions sexual assault.  Picture Joey Del Marco: she is sixteen years old, and she plays video games and dances her butt off with the best of them.

Joey goes to a party, where she splits an entire bottle of vodka with a few guy friends. Joey’s friends rape her. Her family and friends turn their backs on her, faulting and shaming her for the wrong that has been done to her. Read More
