FASHION.

Spend or Save

I’ll be going to the Bahamas for a friend’s wedding and I’ve been putting together a list of outfit ideas. A two piece tulle gown is a priority on my list which is why I was excited to find these two different options with varying prices. I like that this gown would be a great investment because I’ll be able to wear it throughout the summer.

I hope you have have a great week.

Love,

E.C
