A white woman stands in front of a church door smiling. She's wearing a gray turtleneck sweater.

Lessons Learned: Gray isn’t my color. This fabric isn’t what I want it to be. There’s nothing wrong with this make, but I feel like I’m taking a step backwards when I put it on. I want my clothes to help me feel more present in my body and in the world. This sewater kind of does the opposite.

Next Steps: Bye!
