okay, so i may have already found a dress... $200 calvin klein, (this is not a joke). but, i saw these bridal alternatives from thread (via snippet & ink) and i had to check it out. the breck is my favorite, followed closely by the liddy. however, i have reservations about the strapless look. (if you don't fear the armpit fat, you are a liar). simple, classic, affordable. nary a bead or rhinestone in sight.
