Fantasy, Feasible, and Frugal Dresses

There are some special moments when you meet that dress that you love, and you can't get it out of your head.  Like true love, you just cannot get over that dress. However, there are times when you fall in love with someone unattainable, like Matt Damon, or a $1,880 Fendi dress.  Although  people tell me it is "unhealthy" to shop for guys to find a Matt Damon replacement, shopping for affordable dresses based on characteristics of your fantasy dress is perfectly normal.  Find your fantasy while still being frugal by reading on :)

The Fantasy:

Fashionistas worship Fendi for being irresistibly chic, trendy, and sophisticated.  This one-shoulder blue Fendi dress could just as easily be worn to a club as to a cocktail party, or a chance encounter in a store where your ex happens to work.  Unfortunately, this dress is only attainable for those of us willing to sell a kidney on the black market to afford it...and that leaves back scars.  If you can spend $1,880 on one dress without crying, buy this from Barney's New York without regret.  For the rest of us...try some of these lower budget alternatives.  


This Badgley Mischka Platinum Label blue asymmetric dress is absolutely adorable.  It will make you feel like a lady (keeping things classy) but it will also make the men want you.  The shine keeps things formal, so keep it to the evening, but pair it with a matte hue clutch and wear with pride.  Buy it at Bluefly where it's $244.99 marked down from $430.  


If you love the one-shoulder look but can't afford the top two, this David's Bridal blue dress is a great alternative.  Although technically a bridesmaid dress, this dress is versatile enough to wear in a variety of settings.  Wear your hair down and pair with heavy baubles before hitting clubs, or a party.  It's only $79.99, marked down from $120.00.  

Happy Shopping :)
