So we might all be freezing half to death, but July at least has one saving grace; it’s sale time! This month we’ve chosen some gowns that were previously a little out of the $1,000 budget, but are now reduced to well within our range. For those of you who prefer the made-to-measure process, we also have a couple of handmade Etsy beauties. Enjoy!
