Daisy Lewellyn Of ‘Blood,Sweat And Heels’ Shares Why You Should Stop Retail Shopping
We’re interviewing a different member of BravoTv’s Blood, Sweat And Heels cast each week (catch our interview with Geneva), and this week we had the pleasure of speaking with Daisy Lewellyn, style expert and author of Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, & Look Your Best Ever. We spoke about how she made it in the fashion industry, being fearless with your style and beauty choices, and that time she got a Brazilian wax for the first time on-air.
Check out what she had to say, and stay tuned each week for our chats with the rest of the cast!
