Today’s Can’t Afford It gown is a two-fer. Bride Hailey fell in love with the Free People Gold Chalice gown, a stunning bohemian number with a strappy, open back and tribal-esque golden embellishments. But Hailey’s true love is the Rue de Seine Mackenzie gown, complete with French lace bodice detailing, a silk crepe full, split skirt, and a barely strapped back.
Hello! I just found your blog and I’m loving it. Recently I found this dress. I’m in love with it, and I’m in love with the price! Unfortunately Free People is no longer selling or reordering this dress. Is there any way you can help me find it or something similar? But if I’m being honest, the Rue de Seine Mackenzie gown is my dream dress. It is about $3,000 and I can’t even spend over $1K on a dress. Help?
You betcha, Hailey! Both gowns have bohemian, strappy, goddess styling with plunging necklines, slit skirts, open backs, and embellished bodices, so that’s what we’ll be on the hunt for!
These next gowns are slightly over budget, so skip to the bottom and avert your eyes if there’s no wiggle room!
