Reader Armarni was checking out this previous post, when she fell in love with a Get Over It gown we featured. Unfortunately, the Sabine Dress by Jenny Yoo was sold out and over budget, so Armani asked us for help:
“Any suggestions for a similar vintage inspired dress for under $250? Was also thinking of adding a detachable train for the drama!”
First off, if you want a detachable train, Etsy is your friend, girl. Search for “detachable wedding train,” “detachable wedding skirt,” and “bridal overskirt,” and browse to your heart’s delight for removable trains in a variety of colors, materials, and price points.
In searching for a lookalike silky sheath gown at an affordable price, I think the key is to focus on bridesmaid dress options. I found a solid roundup below that share similar silhouettes and draping. Let’s check them out!
What do you think, Armarni? Have any of these gowns helped you get over the sold out Sabine? Let us know in the comments!
Any of you BABs out there think you can do better? We’re looking for a couple of frugal fashionistas to take on the task of helping our readers #GetOverIt! If you’re interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject #CAIGOI and a link to a Pinterest board of a designer dress and your broke-ass worthy alternative finds!
