I know they'll look fabulous with party dresses, but can you help me style some more practical, everyday ensembles around them for when I'm doing things like feeding the cat, working at my computer, or going out for chips and margaritas?
1. What size (shoe or dress) are you? S-M on top, M-L on bottom depending on the fit of the skirt.
2. What is your maximum budget? I'd have a hard time spending more than $50 a piece, but I'm open, really.
5. What are you looking for? Give us specifics!!! I am kind of lousy at buying and wearing tops, so I would appreciate some top-centric outfits. I only own one pair of pants that have an actual zipper and they are high-waisted black skinny jeans. Otherwise I'm dealing with leggings and shorts. My favorite patterns are leopard print and polka dots.
6. Please tell us if there's something you really don't like. I don't care for crew necks, v-necks, or skirts for the most part. Or pastels."
I happen to know Michelle in person, and she has many cats and an awesome vintage house she and her husband are renovating by themselves, wears a lot of animal prints, does a lot of thrift store/antique shopping, and lives a couple blocks from the coolest street in Los Angeles (aka Hipster Deep), even though she takes great pains to tell you that she is NOT a hipster. All that being said, girlfriend has a killer body and kooky personal style, so Michelle, this is por vous. Enjoy!

Janetor here: I may spend my days wearing yoga pants and T-shirts, chasing a frenetic toddler and two cats, but I dearly love fashion and pride myself on never paying full price for clothes, shoes, or accessories. Ping me if you're seeking out formal wear, plus-size fashions, or beauty products - or if you just want to discuss the latest season of Downton Abbey or Doctor Who over a pitcher of sangria and some nachos.
