Yes, I got you a discount on Rowan. AND you forgot that designed that second necklace there! And told you how to make it. So really I'm your style icon. Represent.

The envy I feel that you made the dress form. Wow. Okay so I'm not so much envious as I am awe-struck

Hahaha, my style icon - you kick ass!

Oh yes, the doppelganger is rather awe-striking. Very weird... But fun to make!
