Love It or Haute It: Tufts Athletic Apparel

The 2019 Emmys saw the purple carpet filled with a wide array of looks. While some stars showed up in amazing ensembles, others wore looks that just did not work. The first look that missed the mark for me was Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Oscar de la Renta. This was surprising since I typically adore anything […]
