okay girls. the ever-in-the-know amy shey jacobs of chandelier events recently tipped me off to a fabulous new design company that i simply had to blog about. pretty, chic, rewearable bridesmaid dresses? seriously?
it's true. 57grand is a hip new line of bridesmaid dresses — inspired by nyc — and it is the 2010 answer to the ugly bridesmaid dress. they come in awesome colors, luxe fabrics, and are all $200 and under. crazy, right? gowns are made in 12 weeks in new york, and their website makes it super easy to shop. they're also big on promoting recycling their looks (tonight the wedding, tomorrow the cocktails is their motto). they even offer suggestions on how to rewear their looks. very clever.
even better, in march they're hosting a bridesmaid dress drop where ladies can recycle their gently worn frocks by giving them to teens who need them for prom through operation prom. they promote operation prom year round, but they'll be collecting dresses that week in their nyc showroom.
what's not to love?
