    When she spoke about her son it was so touching! He was a VERY brave soul and so is she! I hope one day we can prevent anyone from having to go through that! I wish safety and good health to anyone who sees this❤❤❤

    Truly amazing



  26. l kofie on August 28, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    You know from what she is talking about in reference to her life work and style, and in my own experience, seems the most eclectic individuals both in style and overall vision/approach to life work in retail, social services/social work fields, and/or both…a combination. I personally worked with mentally ill individuals and public aid office AND worked retail off and on as a side job with my main job.



  27. Amy Knox on August 28, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    I’m speechless….she is amazing!



  28. Laces n Soles on August 28, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I wish more people would have your spirit



  29. Russ Catt on August 28, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I never ever get rid of my clothes. I’m starting to wear my 90’s stuff right now!



  30. CiganyWeaver and her periwinklebluespacecaravan on August 28, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    "…to allow ourselves to be present in the world." Coming to you direct from Portland Oregon. Sorry, I laughed out loud.



  31. R Yohn on August 28, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I like the styles.



  32. Andrea Haas Stone on August 28, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    I am a plus size girl, but I used to be skinny. I cant shop in stores because it is such a disappointment because I do not fit size Small Medium Large. I buy my clothes online or using Poshmark or Ebay.



  33. Vanessa Costello on August 28, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    what an amazing women.



  34. Tatiana Isshac on August 28, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    She speaks truth, being who we are is radical in itself.



  35. StealthVoid on August 28, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    That music from the beginning sounds familar of what you inhale helium from roblox. If you know what im talkimg abouy lol.

  37. Nikki Terry Style on August 28, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    "Physically, aging can be a real motherfucker." I felt that. Bless this woman for using her talents to help others 🙌



  38. abod prince on August 28, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    I have a valentino vintage jacket, I’m not sure which year exactly it was made, I guess in the 90s so how much will it sell for?



  39. Ocean Rock on August 28, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Everyone needs to each "The True Cost" of the fast fashion industry. It’s devastating to the environment and runs on the slavery of mostly young women working in dangerous factories. Wear used and vintage whenever you can!



  40. April Newtran on August 28, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Maude is that you??!



  41. Shadya Brown-Hall on August 28, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    I want to be this lady when I grow up 😊



  42. Lindsay Rickman on August 28, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    She is F I E R C E.



  43. Illest J on August 28, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    amazing person and collection



  44. krisushi1 on August 28, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    I just love that you call yourself "A Style Activist". My taste in clothes I refer to as being stylish, classy and most individual! At a very young looking 52yrs, I still rock a whole wardrobe full of leather of every colour, style and type. I’m just missing shorts! Clothes can have the most marvellous effect on ourselves and on others. Forget fashion and those telling you what you should be buying, you wear whatever pleases you! Rock On Style Activist❣🇦🇺



  45. makeupbyrain on August 28, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    What an amazing, inspiring woman 😍🤓



  50. Jay N on August 28, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I don’t think it is "not allowed" for women to date younger men. I honestly think the vast majority of people don’t care one way or the other. But I think it is more uncommon for younger men to be willing to date/sleep with older women in general.
