Personal Shopper: Cruisin' Without a Budget Bruisin' for Shannon

Shannon writes: "Hi ladies! I am so excited to ask your help, you are the absolute fountain of knowledge for amazing finds! My name is Shannon, I'm 28, and in August I will be going on my first cruise to the Bahamas. I am a graphic designer with a very edgy style. It doesn't really conform to anything in particular, but it's artsy, streamlined and thoughtful. I am looking for thing that will keep me comfortable in the heat while not making me look like a tourist. I am 5'2", 125 pounds, definitely more set in the bottom than the top. Because of my height I love wedges and adding extra height. I love slimming, height-enhancing pieces. I am in desperate need of suggestions for capris/pedal pushers, flowing sundresses, and tops to keep me cool in the heat. A mix and match wardrobe would be ideal. My budget is around $200 for everything. A curveball (isn't that more fun?): I have a full chestpiece, which makes me shy away from extreme prints because they tend to fight against my tattoo. I am not afraid about baring my stark white Irish skin, as long as it flatters my booty. Any suggestions at all would be loverly! Many thanks ~Shannon"

So, can we be best friends now or tomorrow? We could take really lame pictures of our tattoos together. On a cruise ship. To the Bahamas. PLEASE?! Anywho, hope you like the get-ups. Tried keeping it all coordinated. They are all relatively simple pieces for a couple reasons: easy to mix-and-match, won't be competing with your sweet chest piece, easy to customize outfits with amazing accessories. Speaking of accessories, check out that octopus necklace for less than $2. AMAZE-BALLS! Have fun on your cruise, lady face! - Magzilla
