I'm drawn to this collection for a myriad of reasons: -The frugal nature that runs underneath my taste for expensive things wonders if I could convince myself to pay more than a couple thousand dollars for a dress I'll only wear one time, so I love love love that someone finally thought to bring Vera to the masses! -It's full of ruffles and frills and gauze and bows, but still manages to be classy (something Vera is an expert in, in my humble opinion). -In the words of the queen herself, "I've learned that a wedding dress represents more than just 'a dress.' It embodies a bride's lifelong dream and her own sense of who she is." -When compared with the Anthropologie Bhldn collection, which debuted at the same time and Leslie likes but I absolutely abhor (sorry, Anthropologie), the Vera collection came up roses!
I still haven't actually made it to a store to see the quality for myself, but for Vera on a budget, I'd advise every bride to at least take a peek!
