I've put together casual baby showers and birthday parties for a few dozen people. We are planning 100 or so rather influential people. To make this better, I'm in Phoenix, AZ and the party will be held in NYC, a place I've never even been to! I am more of a jeans and t shirt girl so dresses are hard enough to pick. Now I need a dress and accessories that will travel well and be suitable for a NYC summer."
Dearest Alaina! I'm Carlota and I'd love to help you find the perfect ensemble for your big event in NYC. I'm also opening it up to our readers to get their feedback. Hope you like my picks and their vote! Good luck and have fun!
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,l I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as for others.
