King Kylie’s Kloset

There’s nothing wrong with making a lot of money. Honestly, I admire Jenner and her family for building up their empire from scratch, and becoming a modern-day royal family.

However, I think what shows a lot about a person’s character is how they use their money.

They have a concrete, physical presence in so many of our daily lives.
