My photographer, Marco wanted to do a shoot where we captured movement, so he wanted me in a long dress with flowy material. I didn't own anything, so I went on a hunt., I stumbled across a site called Light In The Box. This site is amazing! All kinds of special occassion dresses at wonderful prices. The dresses are made to order. You can either send them your measurements for a custom made dress, or you can use their size chart, and order off the rack....either way, the dresses are made to order. It takes a bit longer to get (my dress took 3 weeks), but I think that is the norm when ordering a custom made dress. This dress was on sale for $89, and after tax adn shipping, I paid $109....not bad for custom made dress, huh? If you are in the market for a special occassion dress for a wedding, ball or any other formal event, check out Light In The Box, I think you'll be glad you did!
