 El lookbook de la Señora T - a mí me encantan los jeans y las chaquetas.  Tengo un millón de zapatos porque me interesa estar de moda ;).  Pero, me importa hacer ejercicio y por ese me gusta la ropa de lululemon - así puedo hacer yoga, correr, y ir al gimnasio en estilo. También, me gustan los bolsos de Kate Spade - ay de me, si tuviera mucho dinero ¡lo gastaría todo en esta tienda!

Ahora, es vuestro turno..¿cómo es el lookbook para vosotros? ¿Cuáles son las ropas qué os gusta poner? ¿Qué os interesa? ¿Por qué os importa?
