Does anyone really watch awards shows? For me it’s all about the dresses. And, truthfully, I often just scroll through the photos and catty online comments afterwards to save myself some time. With award season in full swing, we’ve got a sister of a bride who wants her sister to look red-carpet ready on her wedding day.
Hi! I have a Can’t Afford It dress… My sister is getting married and has fallen in love with this dress from the Golden Globes this past weekend.
She also loves anything Claire Pettibone. Anything under $1500?
Megan, love that you’re looking out for your sister. Also, I’m a sucker for white on celebrities. Award shows are a great place to get fashion inspiration for any big event. Let’s focus on the shape, that high collar, and some interesting lace details up top – a trademark of Claire Pettibone’s as well.
OK. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the last gown is above the limit but it was just too good not to include. Plus, it’s on sale so it might be worth watching in case the price drops a bit more. Any other BABs out there have a fun dress suggestion to add?
Kate’s got caviar taste but not enough clams to fund it. And she doesn’t want to sell her precious pets in order to snag a real Claire Pettibone.
Hello, I have been enjoying reading through your blog, lots of great tips written in a humorous way 😉
I’m a UK bride to be and we seem to have a lot less choices wedding dress and price wise than in the US. I have been totally lusting over the Claire Pettibone Chantilly wedding dress, along with a few of her others. However, unless I remortgage my pets there is no way I could afford even a quarter of one of the CP dresses. If you have any ideas for alternatives I would really appreciate it. I’m looking for a lace/vintage style wedding dress with an interesting or unique back.
Kate, you’re right; Claire Pettibone does amazing things with lace. No one will argue with you there. Unfortunately, few people have her touch. Also, the amazing lace backs that she features aren’t easy to find. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t find something vintage-inspired with lace to have without sacrificing Fido. Stick with that open-minded attitude and let’s look at some options that are less than a sixth of the cost of your inspiration.
Help! I recently got engaged and, while searching through a wedding dress look book, I absolutely fell in love with two Claire Pettibone dresses that are way out of my price range. My fiance and I are planning an evening backyard ceremony and I love the look of the lace in these dresses. I think it's elegant without being too formal for our outdoor wedding.…
