Lovely sister Lisa writes: "Dear Outblush, My absolutely gorgeous sister is marrying prince charming this June. As her maid of honor, her Pippa, I am fulfilling a promise made when I was 16, that I would buy her Christian Louboutins for her wedding day. The time is here and the dress is bought which has a slit up the front just to highlight these shoes. Since its my $1200 (max) being spent on this heels, they have to be spectacular! We need some help! It doesn't need to be Louboutins, they just need to be awesome and something no one else has. I'm a teacher, so on sale shoes are on
the radar. Her dress is ivory and lace and definately a vintage look. My accountant sister is back in the fashion industry (used to live in L.A.), recently taking a job managing an upscale boutique in St Louis. These Missouri sisters need some extra eyes to scout out the perfect pair! Her dress is ivory and lace. The theme of the wedding is vintage. I've been saving since my teens and I'm so excited to make this purchase! Thanks for your help, Lisa aka Pippa"
Dearest Lisa! Carlota here. You sound like an amazing sister and your sister is a very lucky gal to have you standing beside her on the most important day of her life! I'm a huge fan of vintage looking designer pieces so I found quite a few stunners for you and your sister. My personal fave is #8. Hope you like them! XOXO

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 I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as others.
