    Any leads on retractable id holders? I just can’t bring myself to wear a lanyard!

    That skirt is to die for! That’s going on my wishlist. In the alternative, does anyone know of any budget versions ( under $100) of the DVF skirt?

    I am obsessed with the glossier cleanser. It’s the best I’ve found at taking off my makeup – almost like a cleansing oil but it doesn’t require a second cleanse. I’ve never tried their concealer, but I also swear by Boy Brow and the Cloud Paint blushes. Their new sunscreen is great too! I’m curious to see what you think of the cleanser.

    We’re coming up on tights time, huh… I need to upgrade from my shitty H&M ones. Are Boden’s worth it?
