What Strange Stuff Did You Do As A Kid?

Yesterday, Amelia and I were discussing a random post idea, and Frederick’s of Hollywood came up. At that moment I remembered how much I enjoyed reading that catalog when I was younger.

It wasn’t a secret that I had a thing for Frederick’s of Hollywood, but I’m surprised my mom never told me to stop. I became even more fascinated with the catalog after my aunt told me Frederick’s of Hollywood was where hookers shopped.
