broslikethischick asked: Hi Jaclyn! I am going to a formal wedding in Santa Barbara in two weeks, and I can not find a dress anywhere! I am trying to avoid strapless, and go for a more form fitting build. I'm also broke, so I would love to find one for under $100. Your input would be greatly appreciated!
Hi! I’m not sure what size you are, but if you happen to be a size 8, this Lauren Ralph Lauren pink dress is marked down to $55 (from $180). I also stumbled upon this great, inexpensive long gown from Missguided: it’s black, with a flattering higher neck and is bodycon. It’s just $72! It’s also available in blue and a few other colors. If you like a halter neck, this Kamalikulture gown ($92) is pretty. ASOS is always a great source for affordable dresses. If you’re comfortable going cocktail-length, this dove gray dress ($87) is very simple and chic. I also like this peplum hem midi dress ($54). This black halter midi is nice too ($54). For long options, I love this cowl back gown in black or blue ($73). This red dress with lace detail is $100.60.
If you’ve never used RTR, you should check it out—there is a good selection of formal styles on there for less than $100. I love this wine-colored Nicole Miller gown ($70). If you like teal, this Nicole Miller has a great back ($100). I love all the textures on this black Nicole Miller ($80). If you want something really minimal, this Blumarine ($70) is a good choice. The draping on this DKNY dress ($70) is flattering. Last, I love the purple color of this Issa gown ($80).
