A sweater gets too bulky/warm - especially chasing around kids, and you end up doing the t-shirt underneath/sweater on and off all day long. So, stylish long sleeved shirts. I could spend about $75, for 2 shirts. For my sister, who likes things that are machine washable and will withstand running around with a one year old and a three year old, and classic-looking, but a little modern (not lacey/frilly/girly). She doesn't like ruffles (simple ones are ok, but they often just add bulk). Anything that makes her already broad shoulders look bigger. Also, nothing with words or too cutesy."

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
