All Dolled Up: Laura Czupinski aims for speed and style

by

comment

Metro Times' Laura Czupinski is just as sweet as her style. The bargain shopper loves a good deal and doesn't subscribe to a philosophy of combing through endless clearance racks in order to spend the bare minimum and still look cute. She's known to sweep through Forever 21 and grab fistfuls of inexpensive scarves, pants, and even boots. Target's clearance clothing section usually produces pretty sweaters for a steal.

"I'm an in-and-out kind of girl," she says of her shopping style and fashion sense. "Everything I'm wearing, I probably picked out in 40 minutes."

Since she spends so little time perusing retail establishments, she has plenty of time to spend with her big family and her many friends. She says she loves a good bottle of wine, and hitting the bar. She's quite crafty and loves DIY projects too. She even made her coffee table out of an old door.

Oh, and fellas, she's also in the market for a date this New Year's Eve!
