look for less - short wedding dress

Laura R.1 Comment
If you've seen my fashion posts, you know I love putting outfits together. Most of those outfits are craaazy expensive though, so I'm mixing things up and putting together budget-friendly ones instead. I'm going to start publishing weekly "looks for less" - inexpensive looks based on pictures I find on the Internet. Drop by each Friday to see what I've put together and let me know what you think!

How cute are short wedding dresses? The one above has two of my favorite wedding dress details - lace and scalloped edges. For many brides, the $700 price tag (not including shipping) is a steal. But $700 isn't chump change for someone who is maybe paying for her own wedding. To recreate the look, I chose a $179 dress from Macy's (love the back) and paired it with $50 fuschia heels from DSW. The pop of color is fun and unexpected, but it's not for everyone. The earrings are from Charlotte Russe and they're only $6! No one has to know... Finally, give your almost-kissed-by-your-husband lips a swipe of $8 drugstore lip gloss. I tried this stuff the other day and loved the way it felt on my lips. It really does give you a fuller pout - perfect for pictures!
