Personal Shopper: Mary and Alena's Answer to the LBD Dilemma

Mary writes: "Can you help me find the perfect little black dress?"

Alena writes: "Help! I am in need of the perfect LBD and you guys have yet to fail me! My parents hold an annual charity event to support Parkinson's in September and I am in need of the perfect dress. After living in NYC for the first time this summer, I realized that I need to add a little more black to my wardrobe, so I thought why not start with a dress for the event. I like simple yet unique and am open to any type of silhouette. My boyfriend is also going to be there and I want to look sexy yet sophisticated since it is a charity event. I am 5-6 and wear usually a 0-2 in dress sizes. Can't wait to see what you find!

p.s. if you happen to find any amazing shoes to go along with it I wouldn't stop you from adding those in too!"

I prefer the hardcore body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.
