We know there aren't 13 days of Christmas,but she's worth it. Ladies and gentlemen...Rebecca Bree

With a welcoming atmosphere (comfy seating, check!) and friendly stylists, it's akin to playing dress up with a friend, a very, very stylish friend. 

Why we love Rebecca Bree: RB's site is a force to be reckoned with. From one-on-one styling via email, to sartorial inspiration, and weekly fashion story round ups, Rebecca Bree is a veritable destination of style.
