Finally, someone to steer us hard working stylish women in the right direction! What girl doesn't want to walk into a room and be noticed? Sometimes it's difficult to figure how to coordinate a killer outfit while being economical.  Shauna's blog and book has opened my eyes to the possibilities of being a fashion icon without breaking the bank. Both my closet and my bank account are thankful! Thank you Penny Chic!!!
