I was randomly googling dresses & saw one I liked & I tracked it down to this website. First of all, what is a “look book”? And second of all, there is no add to cart button or anything. It’s just pictures! How on earth do you buy one? Third of all, what is with the separate tabs for fall 2012 and spring 2013 and fall 2014, etc etc. what does that even mean?
Every time I track down a dress it’s that “look book” business I described above with no way to buy any dresses! What are these websites for? Seriously, what ARE they for? It’s maddening. Occasionally some will have a “find a store” button & they do have physical stores but only like 3 of them, one in New York, one in London and one wild card like Texas or something. I am at my wits end.
Can anyone explain these “look book” websites to me? I don’t know how to avoid them, all roads lead to one when googling wedding dresses. I am running out of time to find a dress & going no where!

Look books are basically catalogs, you’d have to find a store that sells the designer to try them on, etc.
HOWEVER, I have recently read some VERY bad reviews about Sarah Seven… I would do some mega research before you set your heart on one of her designs, as I would hate for you to get screwed by her. There was a recent post here on WB about it, and if you Google her, you will see the reviews on many wedding websites about her taking payments from people and never ever delivering their dresses, dropping off the face of the earth, and those that did receive dresses from her said her work was quite poor, the hems seemed unfinished.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news 🙁

@yehyehgirl: I think you might have to see if there’s a store close to you (there’s a store tab at the top of the page) and call them to enquire about their stocklists.

@yehyehgirl: I’ve also read some recent, pretty scathing reviews of Sarah Seven. Please do your due diligence before ordering.

@yehyehgirl: I hated that when I was browsing too. To me, it’s like a way to suck you in to love the designer and then you’ll find out that it’s way over your budget and be broken-hearted. My suggestion is to stick to going to physical salons to find dresses so that you don’t get duped!
