Now, I need some help for myself! I am eloping in 4 months! I need your help because we are not telling ANYONE...Thus, I can't go to my girlfriends or mother for fashion advice...so, please help me find a dress for my occasion! I am a size 8/10 that will be getting married in the spring (in the south). It will be a private outdoor ceremony. I am open to anything. I am willing to spend up to 2k. I love boatnecks, sheer tops to dresses, long, short...I am pretty open! I do have a big booty, so it needs to be accommodating. Please help me! I realize I may be out of range for ordering one at a bridal salon...so, am open to regular retailers, especially since it does not have to be a formal dress. Must remain anonymous :) THANKS!"

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.
