Personal Gift Shopper

I just finished shopping for a client who needed a birthday gift for her boyfriend ASAP. He just started a new job and she wanted to surprise him with a new wardrobe. With a $200 budget and two days to find everything here’s what happened…

For the past six months, I have been on a mission to find anything velvet, especially burnout velvet while thrift shopping. The 1970s YSL corset vest and purple velvet Prada wedges are definitely the highlights.
