Broke-Ass Tag: Hayley Paige

5/18

 

Hi BABs!  This week’s request comes from reader Stephanie, who wrote to us on this post and is inspired by several Hayley Paige gowns:

I’m a broke-ass-bride and I love Hayley Paige! I am trying to find a style with her signature layered, flowy skirt look, spaghetti straps with a v-neck, and some kind of shimmer or fun detail! My favorites of hers are the Laney, Chandon, and Pepper gown. All have a similar silhouette!

These Hayley Paige gowns all have a similar silhouette with an airy, modern, and romantic feel to them. They features a low-cut spaghetti strap neckline, natural waist and full tulle skirt with flounces to give the skirt shape and lightness. The Laney gown definitely has a bit of sparkle.

I’ll focus my search on gowns with full flounced and ruffled skirts. Anything with some shimmer details and straps (remember you can always add some) will take top priority. Let’s see them.

Hayley Paige’s Laney gown; $4,000-$4,500

Lace v-neck dress with organza tiered skirt; $800 at Camille la vie / Group USA

Strapless Lace Wedding Dress with Removable Train; CWG739, $800 at David’s Bridal

Style BL219 Sweet; $750+ by Casablanca Bridal

Horsehair Wedding Dress; $790 by Etsy Seller AngellureBridal

Sadie dress; $875 by Etsy seller thepeppermintpretty

Strapless ballgown wedding dress; $600 at at Camille la vie / Group USA

Lace and Organza Wedding Ball Gown with Beading; WG3830; $649 at David’s Bridal

Strapless Organza Wedding Dress with Ruffles; MK3667; $400 at David’s Bridal

And here are some options for separates, just pair these skirts with a fabulous top or bodysuit:

Almira skirt; $810 at BHLDN

Floral Lace and Cascading Mesh Two-Piece Dress; $170 at David’s Bridal

Ruffled Organza Ball Gown Wedding Dress Skirt, Style 2643; $795 by Alfred Angelo

I think the first one there from Camille la vie / Group USA hits a bunch of aspects — the V-neck with straps, definitely some sparkles and WOW factor, and the horsehair trim skirt. But there are lots of dresses in this lineup to look at. I hope this helps you out, Stephanie. Happy dress shopping!

    Gals, I’m so in love with today’s inspiration gown that it pains me that I couldn’t find a closer match for it! Reader Kayla commented on this post with her request:

    I, too, have fallen for a dress I cannot afford. Also a Hayley Paige, Lennon. I love the art deco feel to the top of the dress mixed with the modern feel to the bottom of the dress. I would like to find something similar under $700. Can you help me please?

    Happy to help, Kayla! This was a tricky one because while deco-inspired gowns abound, most have a fluid sheath or slight trumpet silhouette. I compromised by finding gowns with deco-inspired bodices and more modern skirts or silhouettes. See if any of these work for ya:
