My lovely friend T-bone is getting married in June, and she very sweetly asked me to stand up for her.
I am excited to get to share this day with her for a butt load of reasons, and one of them was - I like the opportunity to buy a new dress.
I know that most girls have horror stories about having to purchase bridesmaids dresses - and I totally empathize with them - its a crappy scene. I seriously (seriously) do not understand why David's Bridal insists on making their dresses different than normal people dresses. If I wear a four or a six in Every Single Other Brand then Why (oh Why) do I wear an eight at the DB? It basically just complicates things and ruins people's lives. And most of what you find is just boring.
T-bone and my bestie Beans (who got married two Septembers ago) have both been amazing about bridesmaid dresses. Some vague ideas about what they want but in general fairly low key and just wanting their bridesmaids to be comfortable and feel good.
Anyway, in looking for a dress for T's wedding I came across this amazing website - LaRoux's Closet. I bought my bridesmaid's dress AND my rehearsal dinner dress (both of which I will probably wear a zillion times before they wear out) and in total (including shipping) it cost $80, for both! They are both pretty casual - but the bride loves them, and so do I. Win. Win.
LaRoux's deal is they want to give you a good deal - and I think that's awesome. I think that deserves a sweet blog plug and so here it is. I wish I had bought a few more things but I am hoping that they'll be around for awhile.
AND AND AND as if this bomb ass website could get any better - I have a referral code, which means if you decide to order stuff drop the code "rgrandi" at check out and I'll get LaRoux cash to buy more adorable things. E'rrrebody Wins!
Anyway - blogs about my epic devastation at the bears loss to come later.
