Brittany writes, "1. What size (shoe or dress) are you? Shoe size is a 9. Dress size is a large or 8-10. Blouse size is a medium/large, depending.
2. What is your maximum budget? 100ish for the skirt/top, 200 for shoes/necklace
3. If this is for a wedding or event (i.e. a party, a birthday), when IS the event? TEN YEAR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION eeeeeeeekkkkkkkk!!
5. What are you looking for? Give us specifics! I just really want to look put together/stylish, cute, but also be comfortable. I would love maybe a maxi skirt (or hi-lo) and top - paired with a statement necklace. I LOVE heels and plan to wear heels that night. I am pretty daring - I don't mind anything that's loud or stands out. I am assuming most of my female classmates will be wearing party dresses and be dressed up.
6. Please tell us if there's something you really don't like. I am pretty large up top so I'd like to shy away from anything that has cutouts or is backless. I am able to wear a strapless bra though if needed."
Even though Facebook helps us keep tabs on high school friends, a reunion is tops for connecting with past classmates. Have a blast, Brittany! Hopefully a few of these options will keep you feeling both confident and comfortable! If you decide to go with a maxi or hi-lo skirt, keep your top simple and your jewelry fun!

Plus, I make all of my beauty purchases online just so I can get free trial size samples in the mail. If you're not sure about a product, chances are I've tried it!
