Imagine finding the perfect wedding gown and then realizing that the designer no longer makes it. I don’t know about you, but I would liken that feeling to downing a heaping spoonful of ‘suck’. Well. That’s what happened to bride Rena. But things may turn out alright for Rena, as the discontinued dress of her dreams was way out of her price range in the first place. So don’t worry, Rena, your CAI/GOI fairy godmother is in the house, and she’s found a host of dresses that will make you forget that discontinued dress ever existed. Let’s do this.
I am madly in love with this simple yet stunning Amsale dress spotted on Style Me Pretty, but of course the Amsale web site no longer has it, and I know I can’t afford a dress in the $4-10K range. Can you help find something similar in the $600-1000 range?
