Perhaps you're more into an A-line mini dress, a kicky pantsuit with a ruffled off-the-shoulder top, or a one-shoulder, high-low gem that just screams beach wedding or sweet backyard shindig. And maybe, just maybe, you don't want to spend a king's ransom on your dress. If this sounds like you, I've got an amazing, really budget-friendly, body positive dress designer for you to meet… The Harley dress Let's meet Flash Book Bridal! Flash Book Bridal has been a partner of ours for years and I am obsessed with their whole deal. They're all about being financially responsible with the wedding budget, offering a large selection of sizes, and focusing on alternative styles for couples who want something a little different. Sounds like a dream for us! If you head over to their shop, you'll see what it's all about: gorgeous and simple styles with lovely details that can be dressed down or way up: The Zoe The Zoe dress is a great example of the perfect backdrop for a pop of color with a floral belt, a crown of black roses, this Sparrow veil, or even some galaxy tights underneath! And of course, all that lovely texture is amazing on its own, too. The Vicki top One of my favorite pieces (from anywhere, not just from Flash Book Bridal!) is their Vicki top. I can't stop imagining it with a sharp pair of black pencil pants and heels. It can be totally feminine with pearls and a gorgeous birdcage veil or go more masculine with trousers and a collar necklace. It's just one of those beautifully crafted pieces that can be taken in so many directions and then worn again and again after. Plus, it's only $65. Seriously. Speaking of affordability… Affordable is KEY Like I mentioned, Flash Book Bridal is absolutely affordable: The Harley dress The Harley dress is all asymmetrical lacy awesomeness with POCKETS and is only $125. It's a boho dream dress that I can easily picture in a field of flowers and busting a move in a loft space. The Chloe dress The Chloe dress ($295) is all about the details. Zoom in on the photo here to see the intricate shimmery gold pattern that shines in the light. And that neckline is to die for. The Emma dress The Emma dress is a lacy number that channels the '60s and '70s. Wear it retro-style or wrap it in a belt for a totally new (and re-wearable!) look that adds volume to the skirt. And check it: only $55! The Vicki top A discount, you say? While the prices are already rock bottom for these handcrafted lovelies, we've got an even better deal waiting for you… Offbeat reader promo: Receive 10% off any order until February 28, 2019 with the checkout code: OFFBEAT10 The Emma dress There are so many reasons to support Flash Book Bridal: it's a small, woman-run business making high-quality and unique dresses and outfits that you can wear and wear again in tons of different ways.
