Last week, I found out I'm going to be a mommy! I'm just eight weeks in but the uterus is expanding faster than I expected. :) Can you please please please help me expand my wardrobe? I'm looking for fabulous, diverse pieces that can get me from summer to fall and can stretch from the office to dinner with friends and more formal events.... I'd like to spend about $500-$600. In a perfect world, I could wear the clothes post-pregnancy. I'm currently a size 2, but I'm sure Mother Nature has plenty more surprises up her sleeve. I appreciate your help! xoxo Sincerely, Christina"

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.
