From The Desk Of: Ginny Slim
Aug 11, 2016
We first met Ginny when she starting printing posters for her brand Sugarhigh + Lovestoned a couple years ago, we were instantly drawn to her bohemian aesthetic and bad ass attitude. We sat down with Ginny to learn more about her latest projects and how she spends her time when not working.
