VC: Very Croise (CL style)
VG: Very Galaxy (CL style)
LC: Lady Claude (CL style)

TDF: To die for
WTH: Who/Why/What the heck/hell (or if you're NR, WHO THE HOE?!? HAHAHHA)
IMO: In my opinion
TIA: Thanks in advance
ITA: I totally agree
UHG: Ultimate Holy Grail (aka the shoe/purse/whatever that you would KILL for)
HTF: Hard to find

BIN: Buy it now
AFAIK: As far as I know

Random initials: On this blog, I refer to all my friends by their initials
