- Wedding: September 2012
I am now a married lady, but I still love looking at dresses, and thus am still subscribed to Church Street Bridal’s facebook page. If you haven’t heard of CSB before, you can learn more about it in the massive thread here. Basically, they are a charity shop that donates all proceeds to domestic violence programs. Many upscale bridal donate their sample dresses to CSB, which then sells them at a fraction of the cost (seriously, they are often 90% off retail!)
I *love* the idea – it combines a few of my favorite things (bargains, designer clothes, helping women), and I almost got a dress from there (I was set to order it the day I fell inlove with my dress). I still look longingly at some of their beautiful offerings, but they don’t have as many “plus size” dresses (simply based on their suppliers, which don’t either). But today they posted an album of a new shipment they got from a famous shop, and there are some BEAUTIES, in a variety of sizes (just clicking through thus far, I’ve seen sizes 6-28!)
Here are some of my favorites:
Alita Graham, size 18 $400 (they also have it in 22 and 26) LOVE the skirt!
Alita Graham, size 26, $350
Alita Graham size 18 $450 (also in a bunch of other sizes – great option with sleeves and the very current illusion neckline)
There are tons more on their FB page, even some Pninas (if you like that sort of thing hehe).
I am not in any way associated with CSB, but just wanted to put this great deal PSA out there, as I often do when I find a deal I don’t need myself 🙂
