This week’s BAB Sofia has some amazing couture taste! The wonderfully unique neckline created by the detailed draping of the sleeves on her Le Spose di Gio dream dress is truly to die for.
I am in love with a wedding dress from Le Spose di Giò. It is the dress CL31 from the Classica Collection. I am not sure about the price but I don’t want to pay more than $1,500. Would you be able to give me any ideas? I really like the neckline and sort of transparent sleeves.
So, Sofia, I’m starting with an apology. I failed to find the retail price for this European designer. It might be worthwhile to check local shops in your area in case it’s more affordable than it appears. Until then, here are some wonderful alternatives for you to covet.
Finding something that matches your inspiration’s super beautiful neckline was super difficult. After looking really closely at lots of necklines – a strange way to spend a Sunday evening – these came up as noteworthy alternatives. Hopefully you’ll find something here that makes your heart swoon!
Another option to consider, if you can find a seamstress you trust, is buying a dress that provides the base you want – like the Angelique gown by J. Crew – and hiring someone to create the beautiful tulle overlay. This could create a look that’s closer to your vision while keeping you under budget. Given the modern look of your dress, going the route of having a dress made may be your best bet. Consider researching dress makers in your area. Perhaps you can save even more by having something specially made for you.
