I should start with a "thank you," because I'm a big, big fan and I've bought a few things you've posted and those are the items in my wardrobe that I consistently get complimented on. So thank you for making shopping so much less overwhelming! Second, I am in graduate school and I am interviewing for jobs and I need to look formal and professional and carry extra (unfolded) copies of my resume is my backpack (professional fail) or my beloved-but-too-loud-for-the-occasion Vera Bradley bag. I fell in love with this Coach bag in black but it's out of my student price range. I was hoping for something more along the lines of $100 -- can you help me?? Thanks!"

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
