  • Oh yeahhh, what a team you put together ?????! I’m in love with the Sac Du Jour and the monogram shoulder bags ? I personally preferred the Nightingale’s older version, but this new one is growing on me, as is the Drew bag, every time I see it I like it more ? And as for the Balenciaga… It’s a Balenciaga, it never gets old ?!!! Resuming: I wouldn’t mind having one of each in my closet ??❤️???
