Be Inspired by BeautyPosted: Wednesday, May 9, 2007
I get a lot of comments and emails that address the price of items featured on this blog. Honestly, I tend not to be mindful of price when it comes to the aesthetically pleasing; it has never been in my nature to do so. I’m aware that we all come from a wide range of lifestyles and incomes, causing us to have different priorities and budgets; nevertheless, we have one common bond that brings us to this one place, and that is our passion and appreciation for stylish clothing, beauty products, and beautiful things in general. It is my sincere hope that you are inspired by the items posted within this blog. Moving forward, I will try to be cognizant of cost whenever possible.
That said, June and July are very important months for most people. Some women are making plans to marry their prince charming and some are planning to witness the nuptials of a loved one, while others will celebrate another year of marital bliss.
My friend, fellow blogger, and Ph.D candidate, Shanesha, falls into one of these categories. This summer, she will celebrate her first anniversary in Toronto with her husband Chibi, but not before having a photo shoot with a prominent photographer to record their special event. Looking for ideas on what to wear she emailed me, asking if I could help find a dress for the shoot and one she could wear to a wedding. How sweet! I must say it was pretty challenging trying to stay within a budget; however, I think I may have found something she can wear.
During my search, I immediately fell in love with this 100% silk gown because I could imagine myself and the types of romantic photos I would take with my hubby to commemorate our fifteen years this June.
I’m also loving this Laundry dress by Shelli Segal.
Here are some fairly inexpensive dresses, all under $100.
