Danielle Nicole Colette hobo
Q: What was your best fashion purchase of 2013?
Christie Moeller, I Can Style U: My best purchase in 2013 was a pair of Chloe wood wedges that I got for a ridiculous steal! #lovethem
Laura Coronado, LollieShopping: 1980s vintage deadstock (meaning never sold, never worn) sunglasses purchased from Electric Lemonade Shop at Neon Bazaar.
Christa Emmer, Beauty Guru Las Vegas: A pair of riding boots. We said goodbye to Uggs and hello to sleek elegance. If you haven't already pick yourself up a pair slim-fitted riding boots available in tons of colors.
Susan Stapleton, Racked Vegas: A Danielle Nicole Colette hobo from Coterie. I get so many compliments on it. I also got a raccoon tail (don't worry, it's fake) to go with it. Those in the know think it's cool. Others think it's a cat in my bag.
