Every newly engaged New York woman knows the drama of finding the perfect wedding dress. So what if you could get a gorgeous strapless number for less than a pair of Jimmy Choos—without having to make any appointments or deal with opinionated, pushy salespeople? J.Crew’s new catalogue features a selection of wedding-appropriate dresses, including the Vivian (available only at jcrew.com, or call 800-205-3877). It’s a sophisticated, classic style: a strapless, Empire-waist, floor-length satin gown with back box pleat and built-in bustier with boning. All it needs is a dramatic necklace and a sexy pair of shoes—and since it costs only $550, you’ll have plenty of cash left over for those vital accessories.
