But what about those who really, really don't have money to plunk down on a gorgeous gown they'll only wear once? One woman, faced with this ridiculousness, decided to give away her wedding dress after her wedding to a bride in need. The bride, who wishes to remain anonymous, is offering her lovely ruffly confection of a Cambodian silk gown through Huffington Post Weddings. Head on over to see photos of the dress and find out more. I can't think of a better way to start off a marriage than by sending some kindness out into the world, can you? After all (as it's easy to forget when you're suffering satin-blindness in the middle of David's Bridal panic attack), this getting married thing, it's not about a day, or even a dress -- it's about starting a new life together. A life, one hopes, of giving, and sharing, and good vibes all around.

I saw tons of styles with tiny faces at the Basel watch fair this year. They're a delicate alternative to the oversize boyfriend watch, and perfect for layering with bracelets.

This is the bag shape of the season. I especially love these neutral colors, which work with everything—think of them as the purse equivalent of a nude heel.

Each piece in this Express suit is designed to work separately or together, and the color scheme (not to mention the leopard lining) is a fun twist on basic black.
This is a coat that makes an entrance: The metallic fabric, quilted inner layer, and on-trend anorak shape are so gorgeous, it doesn't matter whether you're wearing jeans or sequins underneath. And at $215, this is one high-fashion garment that looks much more expensive than it is.

Whether your legs are long, short, or somewhere in between, these classic pumps by Rachel Roy will make them look leaner. The 4.5-inch heels may seem high, but the .75-inch hidden platform ensures you get a lot of comfort at that altitude. The best part? The wide range of colors makes it easy to find the right pair.
