Karen Millen® Age-of-Consent

I applaud the small shops I find like Karen Millen® and Wolford® who always have personalized and often handwritten outbound mail on their cash wraps targeted for good customers. Here Karen Millen solicits pen pals via a signup card. But the footnote defines the age of consent to 13 years old. Possibly a bit young…

Postcard from Karen Millen®
