{Can’t Afford It/Get Over It} A Couture Golden Globes Look For Under $1,500

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?

Thank you!!
Megan

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.

CAN’T AFFORD IT

Alexandre Vauthier couture

GET OVER IT

Soft Chiffon Sheath Tank with Illusion Lace Back ($499 at David’s Bridal)

Notte by Marchesa ($995 at Saks Fifth Avenue)

Corrina Gown ($495 at J. Crew)

Backless Mermaid ($370.99 at For Her and For Him)

Scalloped Lace Cut Out ($349.99 at For Her and For Him)

Nicole Miller Lace And Crepe De Chine Bridal Gown ($1,650 at Nicole Miller)

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?
