Alternative Wedding Dresses

I don’t know about everyone else but I’m feeling the hurt of the economy. And yet, prices in the bridal industry are going up!!!!! WTF!!!!! So I’m on a hunt for an inexpesive dress, that looks like double what I paid. I’ve decided that  a white bridesmaids dress is the way to go. And the good part of all that is you can still get a high end brand.

Here is a really pretty Augusta Jones Gown and it’s waaaay less expensive doppelganger from the Priscilla of Boston Vineyard Collection



A lot of companies that make solely bridesmaids gowns are now offering alternative wedding dresses, which are just their dresses in white, but some of these places are jacking up the price, annoying but still cheaper.

I always feel guilty when I go out for coffee and get a sleeve, because it’s suuuuch a waste of paper. So, I always end up opting not to get one and then after that I usually burn myself. Here’s a solution to both my problems and a good last minute gift for coffee (or tea) lover everywhere. A tutorial from Pink Milk and Fairycakes!

The Cutest Christmas Cookies Ever!

Once I am feeling better, I plan to make these. Cookies always make good gift for the numerous people you wish you could buy things for but don’t have the money to do it. I found these recipes at Design*Sponge, they’re done by Caroline Swift, who not only is a talented baker bu a fashion designer as well. Be sure to try only the cookies but the cherry brownies and the champagne sorbet.
