I recently met Veronica Brown at the Touch Boutique Tax Free Weekend fete, where I scored the most stunning lace bodysuit —more on that to come soon. Veronica’s bold jeans caught my eye. And I just loved her red lipstick. Putting a look together is easy for Veronica, as she’s a personal shopper and stylist. Trust me, if you want to know where to find the latest this or that, she’s your go-to girl. And bargains—don’t even get her started. She has radar for a good deal. But enough about my take on this Bella. Read what she has to say for herself.
