I am looking for a black or black and yellow one shoulder dress that is a little shorter than knee length. But this is the tricky part, I am also a broke college student and I can't really spend more than $75 on this dress. I am 5'4" a size 12 with pretty big hips and butt. Can you help me?"
Dearest Erin! Carlota here and I'd love to help you out. First and foremost, don't stress. I'm sure you will look gorgeous for your formal. I had a difficult time finding yellow and black so I thought you could wear a black one shoulder dress and accessorize with yellow. My personal faves are #4 and #6! Hope you like my picks! XOXO

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.
