•••Dont Tell Me to Smile•••

Requests for smiles may seem harmless to some, but they’re often considered to be in line with catcalling, unwelcome gestures and other kinds of harassment, says Kimberly Fairchild, an associate professor of psychology at Manhattan College who researches street harassment. In the worst cases, commands to smile can escalate into scarier situations. But even when a command to smile is just that, Fairchild says there can be a “cumulative effect” if it happens often, as it can in urban areas. “Those things can accumulate in terms of more self-objectification. They can accumulate in terms of making women feel uncomfortable and unsafe being out in public places.”

Shipping & Returns

Items in the Apparel section of my shop are made with a printing partner and will be shipped separately. This also means that I can't accept returns or exchanges because they are made-to-order.

The shipping cost does include tracking and insurance.

What does that mean? Well, if the package is lost or damaged during its travels, you may receive a full or partial refund! For damaged items, be sure to send pictures of the product and box/envelope it was sent in for better chances of getting a full refund.

Please keep your address up to date. If it is incorrect and I have not been informed of the new address before it is shipped out, you will be responsible for paying the extra shipping cost to have it sent back out to the correct address.

Anticipate for shipping to take longer during the holidays so please order your items early enough so that they will arrive on time.
