I’m coming out of lurkdom to help endulge my dress porn fetish!! There are so many gorgeous dresses at all price points, so show me your favorite budget-friendly dress (less than $500) and your favorite budget-breaking dress (more than $5000). Once I figure out how to post pics, I will post my own favs!!

The expensive dress that always sticks in my mind is this Carolina Herrera. I’m usually not one for floral, but I loooooooooooove the colors (grey is one of my colors) and the shape of this dress.
Budget-friendly, well, that’d have to be my own. 🙂 $549 plus tax!

Ok, let’s see if I can upload some pictures. My favorite high-end dress (and dream dress) is the Sunday Rose, but, eek! $10,000 is a lot of money!:
My favorite budget-friendly dress is probably this DB for $179. So pretty, and what a great deal!:

I’m going to break the rules a little, but it leads to more dress porn, not less, so I hope that’s ok! 🙂
So, I really haven’t looked at dresses very far out of my budget, because I’m a skinflint like that, but I went looking around a little just now and came up with this:
Because, yeah. I don’t actually think it’s over $5000, but it’s waaaay out of my budget.
Then, there’s super-budget:
That cute little thing is usually $108. Right now it’s on sale for $81 and I am just wondering why I started planning so far out. Gah!
This is the one I looove, but it’s not quite what I wanted, budget-wise, and also it’s only online, and…. well, in any case, it’s too early for me to be ordering anything. Just stop me, seriously.

I agree is the Sunday Rose as my blow out dress. I used to lust for it. In fact all of the pictures I bought to the bridal salons were remenescent of that dress.
However! My dress was TOTALLY budget! It’s a Augusta Jones sample, so I have no idea what the original price was, but I got it for deal!

This is the one I originally wanted. But it was way too much, I don’t think $5000, but it was out of my budget.
What I ended up with is probably my favorite budget dress. $499 plus a bunch for alterations but still 🙂
