MISS GLITZY said...

By the way, you don't have to be in Paris for the Robert Clergerie sales, it's an online one. Anna Sand is a French website of designers private sales, you just have to register. Thanks to you I understand that my explanation wasn't clear enough, so I modified the text. Have a nice day.

MISS GLITZY said...

Me again, you don't have to publish this, I check on Anna Sand website and they don't ship to the United States, sorry.

Why is blue related to boys and pink to girls? I love blue so much.
