Adena writes to us in search of the perfect New Year's Eve frock!
1. What size (shoe or dress) are you?
Dress size 8
2. What is your maximum budget?
$200 tops for a dress
3. If this is for a wedding or event (i.e. a party, a birthday), when IS the event?
New Years Eve
4. If this is for a gift for a person, please tell us two things they like, and
conversely, two things they DON'T like.
This would be for me. I love well-tailored, knee-length, classy, yet sassy dresses. I have a big butt and a small chest, so I'd like to tone down the former and play up the latter.
5. What are you looking for? Give us specifics!!!
This St. John sparkly dress - I love the length, the neckline (I've got scars across my chest that I'd rather hide under a neckline exactly like this), the color, and the style. It's absolutely perfect in every way... except the price.
6. Please tell us if there's something you really don't like.
I don't like plunging necklines, super short, or strapless dresses. I love Kate Middleton's style of classy, elegant, yet beautiful.
Dearest Adena! Carlota here! You have great taste; that St. John dress is stunning. Don't worry; we'll find something just as nice if not nicer. XOXO
Frustrated in your search for that perfect leather handbag, red stiletto pump, or whatever makes your heart go thump in the night? Click here to check out our requests for you, the reader, and to contact us, and we might do the shopping work for you in a future Personal Shopper feature!
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,l I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as for others.
