She is a size 2, very light brown hair, somewhat fair skinned. She likes strapless only if it is a sweetheart top and is interested in something floor length, but also any other length (just not too short). I think a blue or purple would look very nice on her. Her budget is about $200, but if it is perfect... I think she would spring for a bit more! Please help us!"

Carlota here: I'm a true girly-girl. I love strapless dresses, skinny jeans, basic ribbed tanks, lace intimates, patent peep-toes, jeweled sandals, buttery-soft leather satchels, sparkly pendants....you get the point! I also love to save cash when I can, so consider me your personal concierge when you're looking for luxury-for-less. I also have a crazy husband, two little munchkins (Carlo and Milly) and a furry yellow Lab. All of them are sweet and lovable, but they certainly do occupy a good portion of my day. However I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as others.
