Two of my favorite things in life: summer weddings and amazing bargains. Put them together and I’m a romantic in thrifty heaven.
Last weekend, my family celebrated my brother-in-law’s wedding in picturesque Groton, Connecticut (such a gorg location and couple!). I needed a new dress for the big day, something that was unique and would photograph nicely, so I decided to
be lazy set up email alerts for my fave flash sale site, ideeli, and clicked anytime I saw cocktail dresses on sale.
BCBG was the featured designer one day — and after laying eyes on the lace on this dress (reminiscent of my own wedding gown) and the price tag (regularly $338, purchased for $104), I snatched it up in about three minutes. Oh, the brilliance of flash sale sites! Must buy! Right now!
Flash sale sites, like ideeli, sell a lot of stuff, so my advice is to only click when you’re in the market for something specific otherwise, before you know it, you’ll end up with a new winter coat and a Sodastream. But if you take a targeted approach, you may find a sweet little gem like this orange frock. Here are a few more outfit photos, plus a few shots of the lovely married couple. Congrats Natalie & Joe!
