2/9 Can’t Afford It? Get Over It! Pallas Couture’s Edythe for Under $400

Affiliate Disclaimer New

Today’s CAI/GOI request is for a look-alike dress of “Edythe” from Pallas Couture’s 2010 collection. Reader CircusorBust commented on this post with:

“I love these posts! They have helped me so much. The gown I am trying to find an alternative to is Edythe by Pallas Couture. I am trying to find something under $400. Any kind of dress that is similar to this in style I would love to see. Thank you for your help!”

First, I wanted to point out that the images you included in your request are actually two different Pallas Couture gowns. The front view is indeed the Edythe gown, while the back view on the left is Pallas Couture’s Celestina. Both are gorgeous and unique boho chic-style dresses, and have a very light and airy feel to them. I’ve tried to search for dresses with a similar flowy feel, lacy cap sleeves, and open backs, for my first CAI/GOI! post. They are very unique looks, so let me know what you think of these beauties!

  • it’s a total myth wedding dress should be expensive. Can’t really see a reason why one should spend thousands of $ on a dress to only wear it once 🙂
