Erin writes: "This is a personal shopper request. My husband's company awards ceremony is in 2 weeks, and I'm having trouble finding an appropriate cocktail dress, and was hoping you could help. I need to be able to wear flats with it since my husband and I are the same height. I've got a petite build, and like classic shapes like A-line and shift dresses. I also need to be somewhat understated in color, since I will be with a bunch of business people. If you could help match the dress with some cute flats, I would be so grateful! Thanks! Erin"

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.
