Broke-Ass Tag: Alfredo Angelo


Princesses are the way so many of us fall in love with our future weddings. It’s all about the details and, of course, the dress. It was only a matter of time before a princess line of Disney dresses hit the scene and captured the hearts of BABs. That doesn’t necessarily make the dream affordable, however.

Hey there! I have a CAI/GOI-esque dilemma.

I’ve fallen madly in love with Alfred Angelo’s Disney “Belle” dress–of course I had to try it on even knowing I couldn’t afford the $1200 price tag. And of course the stock size fit perfectly and made my boobs look good (a major feat of its own) and made me feel like a princess.

I’m just in love with the detailing on top, though it’s not quite as much a “must” as the magic-poof on the bottom. Please help me find something nearly (or entirely) as awesome for under $550!

We can definitely find you a princess worthy dress. It just may not be the exact fairy tale you originally envisioned. But happily ever after doesn’t have to be exactly perfect. Be open to some of these beauties.

At least now you have options!) So, what will it be?
