Always a Bridesmaid...

Anyone who has ever been in a wedding knows how expensive they can be. Between the dress, alterations, shoes, hotel rooms, gifts, Bachelorette parties, and showers, you can easily spend $1000...on a wedding that isn't even yours! (And some of you are lucky enough to be in more than one wedding this year!) Of course it's an honor to be asked to share in someone's special day, but does is have to be so darn expensive? I think not.
And here's a tip: I was in a wedding last year and the dress the bride picked out was about $150 at David's Bridal. Just for kicks, I looked on Craigslist. Someone had the same dress for sale, never worn, in my size only 30 minutes away...for $60. Score.

The goods:
14k Goldfill Quartz Necklace, Overstock
14k Goldfill Quartz Briolette Earrings, Overstock
Petal Trim Bobby Pins, Forever 21
Chiffon Party Dress, Forever 21
Glamour Cosmetic Bag, Spiegel
Metallic T Strap Pump, Newport News

I love browns with creamy tones. So pretty. How do you put all the items together graphically? Is it photoshop?

So funny...I just clicked over from your blog post about not getting many comments and was REALLY hoping I might have one today...and there you were! THANKS!
I use Photoshop. I've been slowly teaching myself the last few months because I needed a challenge (other than trying to be an awesome mom), and something to accomplish each day. It's funny how just having something to get done (even as insignificant as a post about cheap clothes) can help keep you sane!
