    Ugh I feel that way about the Vintner’s Daughter serum. Can anyone tell me it’s not worth the money so I stop lusting after it?

      Do it! My skin is so hydrated and looks so dewy/luminous after two months of use. I was able to snag an almost full bottle off of Poshmark at a discount. Worth keeping your eyes peeled on there and maybe eBay?

    I don’t like the color (or the material) on the Boss suit, but the detailing is truly amazing. It would look absolutely smashing in a charcoal gray with a sleeker zip.

    That Hugo Boss suit is AMAZING. Obsessed. Obsessed enough to walk over the the City Center store right now to see it.
