  22. New York Blogger: Rachel Lynch

    08 Jun 2016
    She is all about self-expression, art, poetry, and passion. You won’t find a lot of commercialism in her work. She’d rather write you a story then sell you a garment. Staying true to self in an otherwise boring market, welcome to the world of I Hate Blonde.  It’s always a…
