I love love love all you gals do and I'm in need of some help for my upcoming honeymoon. I read through the bios and I was hoping Carlota could help...I'm 5'2" too!! I'm going to Thailand for my honeymoon ... absolute dream come true for me. Unfortunately the trip has left me a bit strapped for cash, but I'd still love to assemble a small wardrobe to wear and surprise my future hubby. It's pretty humid over there from my understanding so I'm looking for light airy sexy stuff. I'd like a few tops to pair with shorts/sandals, a cute dress or two to wear on nights out and of course some lingerie and bikinis for the beach!
Pants: 27in or size 4 usually
Tops: I'm a huge range... depending on the cut I can fit XS to L. I have a big bust for my frame and a smaller waist though so please no tent-like tops...I get a pregnant look
My honeymoon is Sept 17th of this year. And I would appreciate it if you could come up with some tops for $30-$15 and dresses under $75? Swimsuits on the cheaper too if possible - nothing in the triple digits please! The airline tickets and hotel nights are taking up the majority of our budget but I still want to surprise my fiancé!! Max budget for all...$250. I love bright warm colors, and swimsuits definitely halter (bandeu and triangle don't tend to flatter me as much). I really hope you ladies can help me look fabulous on a budget. Much love, Stephanie"
Dearest Stephanie! Carlota here and I'm flattered you picked me to help you with your honeymoon ensembles. I've chosen quite a few items for you and I hope like them. And we're all pretty envious of your Thai honeymoon! We hope you have a wonderful time and congratulations on your wedding. XOXO
