Ever since Carrie Bradshaw’s “wedding” at the New York Public Library, I have thought about wedding attire in a new way. I would like for my big day to resemble the Met Costume Insitute Gala; HIGH fashion.

Just in time for Brad to propose (Bachelor reference), Shopbop launched a Wedding Boutique!

You may be saying to yourself, “self, there are bridal boutiques on every corner.” While I agree, Shopbop’s selection is much more fashion oriented and much less expensive than traditional alternatives. I would describe a lot of them as designer dresses that happen to be white. Translation: normal dress prices.

This little dress is my number one pick for an engagement party or rehearsal dinner. Tie on a rhinestone belt for a bit of texture.
