We love the House of Mooshki’s vintage-inspired gowns here on the BAB! (Check out our archives of previous Can’t Afford It? Get Over It! posts.) So, I was happy to help reader Jamie for today’s CAI/GOI request, a House of Mooshki “Sarah” look-alike. Jamie wrote:
“I LOVE the House of Mooshki Sarah dress, if I could have ANY dress that would be it, but can’t bring myself to spend the $$$$ and I’m also so worried about having a dress that spendy shipped from the UK without having been fitted!!! Do you have any suggestions!???”
Before we delve into alternative gown options, I do want to let you know that House of Mooshki understands concerns about ordering a dress from afar. They have experience consulting with brides via Skype and telephone conference to ensure that brides get exactly what they expect. You could have your local seamstress take your measurements and then you can relay this information during your consultation. House of Mooshki gets that your wedding dress is a big investment and they want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase.
That said, I totally appreciate wanting to try on a dress beforehand and I am all for shopping close to home and saving money. In searching for the House of Mooshki’s “Sarah”-inspired gown, I focused on tea-length, lace dresses with short sleeves and a bit of ’50s-mod flare. Let’s see some under $1000 options!
What do you think of all these short, lace dresses, Jamie? Any contenders help you get over House of Mooshki’s “Sarah”? Let us know in the comments. Good luck and happy shopping!
